Easy to sanitize—with the durability you need for daily use
Designed for use at the point-of-care, the DS4608-HC features a disinfectant-ready housing that can handle regular sanitizing with popular disinfectants. Screw holes and speaker holes are covered to mitigate the build up of bacteria. IP52 sealing protects against spills, while a patented double-sealed optical system protects the critical optical components from dust and liquid—ensuring that the ‘eye’ of the scanner always captures the sharpest possible barcode image for fast and reliable decoding. The recessed scan window protects against smudges, dirt and scratches, which can impact performance. And the scanner is built to survive multiple 6 ft./1.8 m drops to concrete and 2,000 tumbles in our punishing tumble test.
Scan it all with virtually no exceptions
In hospitals, there is no room for error—that’s why the DS4608-HC is packed with features that ensure instant and accurate first-time, every-time decoding of virtually any barcode found at the point-of-care, pharmacy and lab.
On-the-fly switching between handheld and hands-free scanning
In the lab and pharmacy, some tasks may be better suited for handheld scanning and others for hands-free. With the DS4608-HC, switching modes is fast and easy. Simply place the scanner in the optional presentation stand to automatically switch to hands-free mode; then pick up the scanner for handheld mode. The result? Peak efficiency—your staff is free to use whichever mode is optimal for the task at hand.
Single out one barcode from many
Zebra’s Preferred Symbol simplifies and error-proofs data capture on blood bags and other items containing multiple barcodes. This innovative feature captures and outputs only the preferred barcode, so your busy healthcare staff no longer has to waste time physically covering nearby barcodes before scanning.
Capture multiple barcodes with one press of the scan trigger
With Multi-Code Data Formatting (MDF), the DS4608-HC can scan multiple barcodes with a single trigger pull and transmit only the barcodes you need, in the order your application expects.
