Zebra - DS4208
Hand Held Laser Bar Code Reader

The DS4208 scanner is Zebra’s premiere general purpose handheld imager, offering a unique array of features that deliver superb scanning performance with minimal user effort. With high efficiency 2D imager, superior motion tolerance and a wide working range, the DS4208 delivers robust scanning that eliminates the need to precisely aim and position the device, or pause between scans. And even the smallest, stacked, damaged and poorly printed bar codes are quickly and accurately captured on the first scan, resulting in maximum productivity.

Zebra’s DS4208 delivers the blazing speed typical of laser scanners on both 1D and 2D bar codes, allowing you to accommodate 2D bar codes without sacrificing scanning quality or performance. Users never need to take time to align the bar code with the scanner or pause between scans. And since you can capture bar codes printed on paper labels or displayed on the screen of a mobile phone, retailers can accommodate customers who download mobile coupons, mobile loyalty cards and more.
