Zebra DS3608-DP Rugged 2D + DPM Corded Bluetooth SR Scanner (DS3608-DP3U4602ZVW)

Every day, workers on the manufacturing plant floor scan thousands of direct part marks required to protect product quality and meet end-to-end product traceability regulations. Their productivity depends on the quality of the scanner you put in their hands. With the DS3600-DP Ultra-Rugged scanner, you can give them the best. Get instant capture of direct part marks, plus virtually any 1D or 2D printed barcode. Built for your toughest environments, the DS3600-DP is virtually indestructible, including an enhanced 10 ft./3 m drop spec to concrete and dual IP65/IP68 sealing. With DataCapture DNA, Zebra’s exclusive software ecosystem, you can simplify every stage of the scanning experience over the life of your device. And when it comes to cordless technology, the DS3678-DP’s Zebra-only features put it in a class of its own. The DS3600-DP—the unstoppable performance you need to ensure traceability, reduce production cycle times and prevent unplanned production-line downtime.

Performs In Your Toughest Environments

Superior Scanning on DPM and Standard 1D/2D Barcodes

Comprehensive patented features and Zebra’s exclusive PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology enable the capture of literally every type of direct part mark (DPM) and printed 1D/2D barcode. DPM codes can be captured, regardless of size, surface, contrast or density—including the most challenging mark, dot peen, as well as laser etch, ink mark, chemical etch, inkjet mold, cast and thermal spray.

The same scanner can capture virtually any barcode printed on a label—including damaged, dirty, poorly printed or under shrinkwrap. This dual functionality allows you to use the same scanner on the production line for end-to-end track and trace, and in the warehouse from receiving to shipping.

Ultra-Rugged—the Most Indestructible Design in its Class

Zebra ultra-rugged scanners earned their name for a reason—you won’t find a tougher family of scanners. Ready for the world’s harshest environments, the DS3600-DP has the highest drop, tumble and sealing specifications in its class. It can survive 10 ft./3 m drops to concrete and 7,500 tumbles. With dual IP65/IP68 sealing, the DS3600-DP is dust proof, can handle the force of jetting water and be fully submerged in water. Built to withstand extreme heat, cold and humidity, the DS3600-DP can be used anywhere—indoor, outdoor and even in the freezer.¹

Advanced Illumination System

Advanced illumination provides the multiple lighting effects required to capture marks on any type of surface—including reflective, irregular and curves as well as low and high contrast marks. The built-in diffuser provides the indirect light required to capture marks printed on very shiny and reflective surfaces. The proprietary design of the diffuser also directs additional lighting to the edges of barcodes marked on a curved surface, enhancing the image for easier decoding. Finally, a glancing direct light mode provides the bright light required to successfully read low contrast barcodes marked on any type of surface, including challenging polished materials.
