LI3608 Industrial Barcode Scanner
The new ultra rugged corded LI3608 barcode scanners is ideal for environments that are so harsh you hesitate to bring in valuable electronics.
Zebra has left no stone unturned when it comes to durability on their new line of ultra rugged LI3608 scanners. Built to be virtually indestructible, the scanner can be dropped from 8' to concrete, handle extreme temperatures and are dust, spray and waterproofed with the IP67 model surviving submersion in water for up to 30 minutes. Knowing that most of these industrial environments challenge our senses, Zebra made the LI3608 with 3 flexible feedback modes. From easy to see red and green LED's to a boldly audible beep you can be certain to know if your scan was captured accurately. For even tougher settings, the 3600's have haptic feedback, where the scanner will vibrate to communicate.
For 1D barcode imaging, the corded LI3608 house one of the most aggressive linear imagers on the market. Having the ability to capture worn out or damaged barcodes with rapid speed, the LI3608 can even perform where the lighting is not optimal such a dark warehouses or large freezers.
Remote management of your scanner battery is now available through PowerPrecision+. Configuration tools and firmware updates can be made with 123Scan and Scanner Management Services (SMS). Zebra also provides a 3 year limited warranty for the LI3608 scanners. For an additional purchase, a fully comprehensive warranty is available thus protecting your investment for years to come.

Zebra LI3608 Reviews
Feb 2017 - This is the lowest cost option of the 3600 series from Zebra. It has the most durability out of any Zebra Scanner to date. Please see our video for the testing results where we are unable to break the scanner through any means. This version of the 3600 is only capable of reading 1D barcodes, it also requires you to align the beam perpendicular to the lines. The 2D version the DS3608 scans more accurately, does not require aligning the barcode, and can scan 2D barcodes that may be used in shipping and receiving environments. We recommend the DS3608 over the LI3608.

Hi, this is Travis from POSGuys.com. This is our extended version of our durability testing for the Rhino 3600 series of scanners. We're going to do a series of tests here, we're going to do a crush test, which will demonstrate if you drop the scanner in a warehouse environment, and like your forklift runs over it, you know, will it survive that type of impact. We will also be doing a water test, if you're going to be working with chemicals, if you're going to be using water, you're going to be at a marina, can we use submersed the scanner, will it get wet, will things fail with it. We're going to be doing an ice test for the people that are going to be doing cold storage, can you go into a cold environment, is the trigger going to freeze so it doesn't work, what kind of damage will ice do to it, will it do any damage at all. We're also going to be doing a fire test, and this is for manufacturing type of operations, where you might be working next to very hot forges or other types of steam generation machinery that could potentially melt the scanners, so we'll heat next to the scanner, damage it, we'll warp the screen, anything like that. So we're going to go through those tests, we're going to use the same scanner for all the tests to see how much durability this scanner has, and what kind of damage it can take.
We're going to test cold resistance on it. We're going to go ahead and pull the scanner out of the freezer, it's been in here over the weekend, so that's two days in freezing conditions. And we're going to plug it in. It gets power, on, and there we go, it's still able to power up and send out the beam while being frozen in ice.
Frozen in ice still, and we're going to go ahead and run it over. So we took our scanner that was scuffed and run over, and it's been soaking in our fish tank for a while. It can scan under water. And it can scan through the glass. Additionally, we have our Bluetooth version of the scanner that can also scan after being soaked in the water for about 6 hours now.
Post-durability testing, the trigger is somewhat damaged, the scanner still works, it's on always on mode right now. If you squeeze the trigger really hard then it does work like normal, but something is definitely off on it. The housing is still completely intact, you can see that it is quite worse for the wear now, it's melted, you can see the scuffing from where we ran it over, but the speaker still works and the scanner still works and the cable still plugs in just fine.
So durability wise, the Rhino ranks as high as any scanner we've ever tested as far as crushing, getting it wet, and then getting it hot, it survived everything with the same scanner, we didn't have flaws, we didn't have to repair the scanner any step of the way.
