Ultra Rugged Barcode Scanners

Zebra DS3600 Series


When it comes to capturing barcode data in the warehouse or out on the production line, every second counts — speed and accuracy are directly related to workforce productivity, your throughput and the quality of your products and customer service.

Introducing the industry’s first complete line of ultra-rugged barcode scanners that redefine industrial scanning with new standards for rugged design, scanning performance and manageability. Available as corded and cordless versions with an option for forklift mount cradles, the Zebra DS3600 scanner range reads virtually anything near and far, from small high density barcodes to direct part marked barcodes (DPM) etched on the products themselves.

Durabilty that's second to none.

When it comes to industrial strength, nobody does it better. In fact, the 3600 Series offers the most indestructible design available today, with the highest drop, tumble and sealing specifications for comparable devices. All scanners in this family offer an 8 ft. 2.4 m drop specification that is 23 percent more durable than any other barcode scanner in it's class. These scanners continue to operate reliably — even after 5,000 tumbles. The corded and cordless models are the only scanners in this class that are dust-tight, sprayproof and waterproofed to IP67. And only the 3600 Series offers an IP65-sealed cradle for a complete rugged cordless solution.


In addition to superior scanning performance, an ultra-rugged design and unparalleled manageability via Zebra's user friendly '123Scan' software utility, you get more features that make this scanner easier than ever for your workers to use, including a special mode that simultaneously captures all or specific barcodes on a label with many barcodes; an aiming pattern for first-time accurate capture of barcodes on pick lists; mix-and-match feedback modes so workers can see, hear or feel successful scans; an extreme temperature rating for freezer use and more.
