Zebra (formerly Motorola / Symbol) DS6878-SR General Purpose Cordless Bluetooth® 2-D Imager Barcode Scanner
Comprehensive Advanced Data Capture Supports a World of Applications
The DS6878-SR cordless imager offers the complete data capture functionality required to streamline and error-proof everyday processes in a wide variety of industries. This single device can capture all common bar codes (1-D, 2-D and PDF417) on labels as well as on mobile phone displays. The optional hands-free presentation cradle enables additional advanced capabilities, including: the ability to capture signatures, documents and photographs; optical character recognition (OCR) to capture the text in documents; and MICR to capture the numeric information on the bottom of checks. Electronic recordkeeping is enriched and checks can be instantly converted to electronic debit transactions, reducing the time and cost associated with processing paper checks as well as the risk of check fraud. Add easy remote management, business-class durability, future proofing and world-class support and you have a scanner that not only offers the advanced data capture features your users need, but also the extraordinary total cost of ownership (TCO) required to easily justify this technology investment.
Revolutionary Scanning Performance Improves Productivity and Transaction Speed
Built on the revolutionary SE4500 scan engine, the DS6878-SR breaks the barriers that have long separated 1-D laser scanning and 2-D imaging technologies, delivering an industry first — 1-D laser scanning performance on 2-D bar codes. Businesses no longer need to sacrifice speed and scanning quality for bar code scanning diversity. Exceptional motion tolerance enables extraordinary scanning speed on all bar codes. The scanner can capture even poor quality and damaged bar codes, virtually eliminating exceptions. The easy to use device offers an intuitive aiming pattern and full omni-directional scanning, which eliminates the need to precisely align bar code and imager. And the patent-pending fast-pulse illumination consistently delivers the light required to capture the bar code, enabling use in virtually any type of lighting. The result is increased throughput — and productivity.
Get Cordless Freedom and More
The ability to roam up to 300 ft./100 m away from a host device offers cable-free convenience, improving safety and allowing the extension of advanced data capture in more applications and industries. The latest Bluetooth® technology — V2.1 with EDR — improves security and power management, offering superior protection for the wireless data traveling between scanner and host and helping to ensure ample power for full shift use.
The DS6878-SR is built to survive everyday all day use in enterprise environments. The device offers the best-in-class drop specification — 6 ft./1.8 m drops to concrete. The result is dependable operation, despite the inevitable everyday drops and bumps.
Protect your Data with Government Grade Security
Native FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certification (optional) brings government grade security to businesses and government agencies alike, providing easy and cost-effective compliance with HIPAA, PCI and other industry security regulations.
Low Management Costs
Integrated support for Zebra’s Scanner Management software (ZSM) technology combines with Zebra’s complementary 123Scan2 scanner management software utility to enable effortless centralized management of all your DS6878-SR scanners. The ability to automate asset tracking, configuration and firmware updates dramatically reduces the time, cost and logistical headaches typically associated with the management of mobile devices.
Support for emerging bar code symbologies and industry trends helps future proof the DS6878-SR, protecting lifecycle and TCO. The device can read GS1 bar codes to enable better inventory management, improve purchasing decisions and streamline supply chains. In addition, the ability to read bar codes that are displayed on cell phone screens enables mobile loyalty and mobile couponing programs — the latest trend in marketing and customer relationship management (CRM).
World-Class Support for Maximum Uptime
Keep your DS6878-SR scanners up and running at peak performance with Zebra’s Service from the Start Advance Exchange Support. This exceptional service minimizes downtime with next-business-day replacement of devices that require repair. Your scanners will also be protected from the unexpected with built-in Comprehensive Coverage, which covers virtually anything that might happen to the device — from accidental damage to normal wear and tear. Unforeseen repair expenses are significantly reduced, providing service peace of mind right from the date of purchase.
