As a member of the Zebra 3600 Ultra-Rugged Series of scanners, the practically indestructible 1D/2D DS3608-HP corded and DS3678-HP cordless scanners are ready for the world's toughest environments – the warehouse and manufacturing floor.
In addition to capturing virtually any 1D or 2D barcode as far as 7 ft./2.1 m away, these scanners give you the flexibility to capture a wide range of business information to streamline many everyday business processes, including OCR, documents and photos.
No matter what types of data your workers need to capture, you get all the features you need for truly unstoppable performance, redefining scanner reliability and management simplicity. The result? The dependable, fast and accurate scanning you need to take the quality of your products and your customer service to the next level.
Bluetooth operates at frequencies between 2400 and 2483.5 MHz (including guard bands 2 MHz wide at the bottom end and 3.5 MHz wide at the top). This is in the globally unlicensed (but not unregulated) Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) 2.4 GHz short-range radio frequency band. Bluetooth uses a radio technology called frequency-hopping spread spectrum. Bluetooth divides transmitted data into packets, and transmits each packet on one of 79 designated Bluetooth channels. Each channel has a bandwidth of 1 MHz. Bluetooth 4.0 uses 2 MHz spacing, which accommodates 40 channels. The first channel starts at 2402 MHz and continues up to 2480 MHz in 1 MHz steps. It usually performs 1600 hops per second, with Adaptive Frequency-Hopping (AFH) enabled.
In addition to 1D barcodes, digital imagers (also known as area imagers) can decode 2D barcodes. 2D barcodes can be encoded with significantly more information than 1D barcodes, making digital imagers beneficial to transportation, logistics, and tracking applications. Area imagers enable omni-directional reading of barcodes, eliminating the need to accommodate the scanning device. In addition to reading one and two-dimensional barcodes, high performance digital imagers can capture and transfer images, enabling signature capture and the scanning of documents. Area imagers have the capability of reading Direct Part Marking (DPM), a method of permanently marking a product. DPM is growing in popularity and allows a product to be tracked throughout its life. Digital imagers offer many advantages in certain applications, but area imagers are not to be confused with linear imagers. Although data is captured in a similar way, linear imagers aren’t capable of decoding entire images or 2D barcodes as an area imager can. Area imagers offer significantly more benefits and are the only choice for 2D barcode applications.
