Features and Benefits

  • Robust Healthcare Design: Built to withstand the challenging environments of healthcare settings, this barcode scanner features a disinfectant-ready housing that can be regularly sanitized to meet infection control requirements.
  • Various feedback modes including Night Mode: Choose from a variety of feedback modes, including Night Mode with Vibrate, for different hospital settings like the ICU, night shift, or day shift. Options include haptic/vibration, LED decode indicator, adjustable beep tone, and Zebra's Direct Decode Indicator. In Night Mode, a quick trigger press switches between audible beep and vibration, ensuring accurate scans without disrupting patients or workflow.
  • Green LED: The DS8100-HC Series features a green LED aimer, providing a safe and highly visible option suitable for NICU use where laser aimers are discouraged. The green aimer, along with white illumination LEDs, helps minimize the risk of triggering PTSD episodes.
  • Unparalleled Scanning Performance: Equipped with advanced imaging technology, the DS8178-HCBU210SP5W ensures lightning-fast and accurate barcode scanning, even for damaged or poorly printed labels, improving patient safety and workflow efficiency.
