DS 6608 Digital Scanners

Capture Data and Images with One Multi-Use Scanning Device

The DS 6608 from Symbol Technologies provides unmatched performance in the digital scanning of images and one-dimensional (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) bar codes. Built to read bar codes omni-directionally, the DS 6608 improves productivity for all data capture activities across your enterprise.

These digital scanners offer true flexibility. With the optional Intellistand, you can automatically switch between hands-free and hand-held scanning without having to scan a programming bar code, saving time and improving efficiency.

Increase Productivity by Reducing Scanning and Decoding Times

The omni-directional scanning capabilities of the DS 6608 make the tasks of scanning and decoding simple – just point and shoot. No matter how a bar code is oriented, the DS 6608 delivers a quick, accurate read. The intuitive, laser-generated aiming pattern indicates the full scanning field for additional scanning and decoding ease, leading to improved productivity. With a wide working range, the DS 6608 improves throughput in the most challenging data capture environments. More items get scanned with less time spent preparing to scan or rescanning after errors.

Experience Laser-Like Scanning with the Benefits of Digital

As the supply chain expands, so does the need for tracking more information about each item. By accurately reading 2D and 1D symbologies and capturing images, the DS 6608 helps you manage mixed-use reading requirements without any add-on devices. Its laser-like read rates and unmatched quality let you capture bar codes quickly, improving overall productivity.

Cost-Effective Digital Scanner Meets Needs of Today and Tomorrow

As scanning requirements continue to change, the DS 6608 is built to support those changes. It connects to a range of hosts with a single device, letting you use your current system while allowing for migration in the future – and that protects your investment.

The DS 6608 provides accurate and cost-effective code-reading capabilities for retail, light manufacturing, government, healthcare, postal and lottery applications. In addition to advanced data capture technology, Symbol’s end-to-end solutions integrate ruggedized mobile computers and scanners, wireless infrastructure, enabling software and high-ROI applications from our business partners. Symbol Enterprise Mobility Services are designed to ensure that every aspect of your mobility solution – from defining your business requirements to ongoing service and support – works seamlessly and at maximum efficiency.
