The Symbol* DS4208 barcode scanner makes quick 2D barcode scanning more affordable than ever. Excellent for retail, hospitality, or even healthcare, the DS4208 reads virtually any barcode you pass before it, including mobile coupons. The DS4208 comes in your choice of black, white, or special healthcare white, and can connect via a variety of interfaces.

A motion tolerance of up to 25 inches per second ensures capture of even quickly moving barcodes. For regular UPC barcodes, the DS4208 can get a read from anywhere between 0.3" to 15", fantastic for keeping retail operations moving smoothly. Ranges do vary by symbology and density but still offer easy reading for any situation.

For health care applications, Symbol* built a model of the DS4208 in a healthcare white body. The housing features specialized plastics that are not only antimicrobial, but are resistant to solvents that would pit or etch standard plastics. All models sport an IP43 seal, so dirt and water splashes won't harm the internal components. Add a drop resistance of 6-feet to concrete, and the Symbol* DS4208 becomes a smart investment to future-proof any retail or healthcare business.

    Features
  • Scans from mobile device screens
  • Can scan in direct sunlight
  • IP43 seal keeps out dirt & water splashes
  • 25 inch per second motion tolerance
  • Available with antimicrobial health-care housing
*Motorola DS4208 is now know as the Symbol DS4208.
