DS3508 Industrial Barcode Scanner

The Motorola DS3508 has reached end of life. It has been replaced by the Zebra DS3608.

This product replaces the older Symbol DS3400.

The Zebra DS3508 barcode scanner (previously Motorola DS3508) combines advanced 2D imaging with an incredibly durable body, an excellent solution for streamlining and future-proofing operations. Using the newest Blockbuster (SE4500) scan engine, the DS3508 comes in two models: a standard range imager (DS3508-SR) or high density imager (DS3508-HD).

For standard UPC barcodes, the DS3508 sports an optimal scan range of about 1" to 15". Scanning ranges vary by barcode type, but the DS3508 reads barcodes easily for most day-to-day uses. Both the standard range and high density models offer up to 100" per second motion tolerance, so even fast-paced scanning environments are no match for the industrial scanner.

Ruggedness and longevity are vital in industrial environments, and Symbol designed the DS3508 to hold up to rough conditions. The reinforced body is strong enough to survive multiple drops of 6.5-feet to concrete, and the scanner is sealed to an IP65 standard, ensuring no dust nor low pressure water sprays will harm the internal components. Able to operate in temperatures as low as -4° F, the Symbol DS3508 barcode scanner is a strong and durable imager that will maximize uptime at your business. A 3-year warranty comes standard, Motorola offers service from the start plans to further protect your investment.

  • Able to scan in direct sunlight
  • Strong IP65 environmental seal keeps dirt & moisture out of internal electronics
  • Up to 100 inch scanning motion tolerance
  • Operates in low temperatures, down to -4° F

Motorola DS3508 Reviews

POSGuys Rating:

Feb 2017 - The DS3508 is the best selling 2D scanner from Zebra. From inception it had much better scanning then a laser scanner, good range, and impressive durability. Since release Zebra (formerly Motorola) has improved on all facets of the scanner. The new DS3608 has better range, more accuracy, and can scan from further away. While the DS3508 is still a good scanner the DS3608 is better.
