DS3508 Series

Symbol DS3508 Series
Rugged corded digital scanners

The DS3508 Series of rugged, omni-directional digital scanners bring comprehensive, high-performance data capture to harsh industrial environments.

Engineered with breakthrough digital imaging technology, this scanner family delivers extremely fast and accurate data capture of 1D/2D barcodes, images and direct part marks (DPM), and supports Item Unique Identification (IUID).

The DS3508 Series is available in a various models to meet diverse needs:

  • DS3508-SR: 1D/2D barcodes; image capture/transfer
  • DS3508-HD: 1D/2D barcodes and optimized to capture very small, high density 2D barcodes; image capture/transfer
  • DS3508-DP: 1D/2D barcodes; DPM marks; IUID support; image capture/transfer
Built for extraordinary speed

Capture bar codes, images and direct part marks with extraordinary speed

The DS3508 Series of rugged, corded digital scanners bring comprehensive, high performance data capture to harsh industrial environments to improve business efficiency. Engineered with breakthrough digital imaging technology, this scanner family delivers extremely fast and accurate data capture of one-dimensional (1-D) and two-dimensional (2-D) bar codes, images and direct part marks (DPM) as well as Item Unique Identification (IUID)* support. Available in three models, the DS3508 Series of scanners can meet a wide variety of data capture needs in multiple industries.

High performance that speeds productivity

With the DS3508 Series, you benefit from a scanning solution designed specifically for fast-paced production environments. The CMOS image sensors allow the accurate capture and processing of bar codes at a faster pace than the typical digital scanner. The DS3508 Series is armed with a powerful 624 MHz microprocessor, capable of decoding 1-D or 2-D bar codes within milliseconds, regardless of size or density. The patent pending fast-pulse illumination and fast sensor shutter speed enable image capture at a full 60 frames per second, delivering outstanding motion tolerance. In addition, the omni-directional scanning functionality allows operators to quickly capture bar codes from any angle, eliminating the need to align bar codes with laser lines. Plus, the DS3508 Series offers the widest working range of any scanner in its class.

Built for industrial environments

As innovative as it is rugged, the DS3508 Series delivers the ergonomic and operational features for scan-intensive industrial applications under the harshest operating conditions. The device is designed to perform reliably despite the inevitable bumps and drops — even on concrete. An IP65-rated seal makes it impervious to dust and water, and the exit window is scratch-resistant and recessed for the highest level of durability. As a result, enterprises enjoy a low total cost of ownership — employee and device downtime as well as equipment repair and replacement costs are minimized.

In addition, noisy machinery and poor lighting can make it difficult for operators to see or hear scanner feedback to ensure proper completion of scans. The DS3508 Series addresses this challenge with bright LEDs, an adjustable volume beeper and a vibrating pager motor placed in the handle, ensuring that decode feedback is clearly visible and audible to users, saving valuable worker time.

Three models to meet many needs

This diverse product line offers a number of models designed to meet a wide variety of application needs across a variety of industries:

DS3508-SR: Combination 1-D and 2-D bar code scanning and image capture
The DS3508-SR offers the flexibility to meet the needs of a wide variety of applications and environments, providing 1-D and 2-D bar code scanning and high-speed image capture and transfer, as well as support for a wide variety of interfaces for easy integration with new and legacy systems. The DS3508-SR is designed to streamline inventory management in scan intensive, fast-paced environments, from the largest warehouse to the retail backroom, where a quick scan enables the automatic and accurate capture of the information required to increase productivity and reduce errors. At the receiving dock, a scan of the bar code on the boxes, pallets or bill of lading enables automatic reconciliation of incoming shipments for faster processing of incoming goods. In put-away and picking, a quick scan can determine where product should be stored and also verify that product was placed on the right shelf, virtually eliminating false out-of-stocks due to misplacement — and lost sales. In shipping, a quick scan verifies that the right shipment is addressed to the right person, eliminating costly mis-ships. In addition to improving the efficiency of inventory management, this device can also provide invaluable photographic proof of condition. For example, with a quick press of the trigger, a worker can capture a photograph of a damaged shipment or product.

DS3508-HD: Optimized for comprehensive 2-D bar code capture
The DS3508-HD offers the same capabilities as the DS3508-SR, but adds optimization for the very tiny and dense 2-D bar codes frequently found in warehousing, transportation and logistics, and manufacturing environments. In manufacturing operations, the DS3508-HD allows even small parts with small bar code labels to be easily scanned to verify that the right part is used at the right time. As a result, product quality improves, increasing customer satisfaction and retention. Real-time inventory visibility allows manufacturers to reduce standard stocking levels, reducing warehouse space requirements and increasing inventory turns and profitability. And in the event you are notified of a defective part, you can easily trace the location of defective product for more rapid and targeted recalls, protecting brand image, customer perception and recall costs. And companies involved in warehousing, shipping and delivery of smaller items can easily read the small, dense 2-D bar codes that may be utilized on smaller packages.

DS3508-DP: Comprehensive IUID-enabled scanner with support for 1-D, 2-D and DPM bar codes
This powerful scanner combines highly advanced DPM-specific software with the functionality of the DS3508-SR, the focusing capability of the DS3508-HD and integrated IUID parsing capability. This single cost-effective device provides government agencies and industrial manufacturers — including automotive, aerospace and medical — with the ability to capture all 1-D and 2-D bar codes as well as every type of direct part mark. Comprehensive IUID support enables the capture and processing of Unique Item Identifiers (UIIs) — the scanner can validate, read, separate and transmit the right information to your application. And field upgradable construct tables future-proof your IUID applications.

Reduce capital and operational expenses

The ability to capture 1-D and 2-D bar codes as well as direct part marks with a single device eliminates the need to purchase, manage and maintain multiple devices to accommodate multiple bar code symbologies in the enterprise. As a result, the enterprise enjoys a fast return on investment. Since one device does it all, capital and operational costs are reduced — and productivity is increased. In addition, IT departments can dramatically reduce the time, cost and logistical headaches associated with scanner configuration and management with Zebra's 123Scan2 Configuration Utility and Remote Scanner Management (RSM) technology, both of which are supported on the DS3508 Series. 123Scan2 is a powerful PC-based software tool that provides rapid and easy scanner set-up and customization. RSM enables remote, network-based device management from a central location.

An investment for now and the future

In addition to the productivity-enhancing features you need to keep business moving, the DS3508 Series provides you with investment protection. Onboard support for multiple interfaces, a standard feature, allows you to use your scanner with many different types of systems for seamless integration now, as well as painless migration to the new systems of the future. We back up our leading scanner design with a full three-year warranty. And to help protect your investment, Zebra offers Service from the Start with Comprehensive Coverage. This unique service goes far beyond normal wear and tear to include accidental damage to exit windows, scan elements and more at no additional charge.
