Innovative Features of the DS8108-HC Handheld Imager
Unparalleled performance on virtually every barcode in any condition
Only the DS8100-HC Series combines the power of an 800 MHz microprocessor, a high-resolution megapixel sensor and Zebra's exclusive PRZM technology. With this unique combination of hardware and advanced algorithms, the DS8100-HC Series instantly captures the most problematic barcodes found in pharmacies, labs and at the point-of-care—including dense, tiny, curved, poorly printed, shiny, crinkled, faded, distorted, dirty or damaged, as well as electronic barcodes on dimly lit displays.
First-of-its-kind housing offers maximum protection against infections
The DS8100-HC is the only scanner to offer a purpose-built housing specially designed to help prevent the spread of bacteria. Special plastics allow for safe wipe-downs with the widest selection of the harshest and most aggressive disinfectants used in today's hospitals. Also, concealed screw holes and seams eliminate areas where bacteria could hide—even after a wipe down. The DS8100-HC Series also withstands dirt, moisture, and repeated 6-foot drops to concrete. Plus, its window is chemically strengthened to be scratch resistant.
Flexible user-selectable feedback
Users can choose from a wide array of easily controllable feedback modes designed for virtually any hospital environment that will instantly notify healthcare workers that a barcode was properly captured—without disturbing patients. In addition to the standard LED, vibrate and beeper feedback, Zebra's Direct Decode Indicator flashes illumination onto the barcode to confirm that it has been captured. With Night Mode, healthcare workers can switch between vibrate and beeper feedback by simply depressing the trigger for a few seconds.
Patient safety guaranteed
The DS8100's green aiming spot avoids blue wavelengths, which can potentially cause eye injury.
Continuous 24 hour scanning and exclusive battery charge gauge
With Zebra's exclusive PowerPrecision+ smart battery in the cordless DS8178-HC, nurses and workers always have the power they need for the busiest shift. Devices are always available—no need for charging mid-shift and no more guesswork on the status of a battery at the start of a shift. The DS8178-HC is also the only scanner in its class that makes it easy to see at a glance whether a battery needs to be replaced before the scanner is placed into service. And since the battery can be changed without special tools, it can be changed at the point of care if necessary.
Easily manage all scanners with powerful complimentary tools
With 123Scan, users can easily create configuration barcodes to program scanners. If imagers are in multiple locations across the country or around the world, Scanner Management Service (SMS) can configure and update the firmware for any DS8100-HC Series device that is plugged into the host—no depot staging or user action is required.
