Zebra - DS6608
2D Bar Code Reader

The MZebra DS6608 provides unmatched performance in the digital scanning of images and two-dimensional (2D) and one-dimensional (1D) bar codes. Built to read bar codes omni-directionally, the DS6600 Series improves productivity for all data capture activities across your enterprise.

The omni-directional scanning capabilities of the DS6600 Series make the tasks of scanning and decoding simple—just point and shoot. No matter how a bar code is oriented, the DS6600 Series delivers a quick, accurate read. The intuitive, laser-generated aiming pattern indicates the full scanning field for additional scanning and decoding ease, leading to improved productivity. With a wide working range, the DS6600 Series improves throughput in the most challenging data capture environments. More items get scanned with less time spent preparing to scan or rescanning after errors.
