UNSTOPPABLE PERFORMANCE FOR DIRECT PART MARKS (DPM), 1D/2D AND WIDE 1D BARCODES IN INDUSTRIAL MANUFACTURINGWhether you are involved in automotive, aerospace, farm and fleet or other industrial manufacturing, you rely on track and trace applications to provide better control over product quality, protect consumer safety and ensure regulatory compliance. Zebra's corded DS3608-DPA and cordless DS3678-DPA are designed to help industrial manufacturers meet these track and trace requirements, without jeopardizing "on time every time" delivery goals. With a single scanner, workers can capture virtually any direct part mark, as well as 1D/2D and wide 1D barcodes for superior versatility. The ultra-rugged design is practically indestructible - ideal for punishing environments. The scanners offer unparalleled ease of management, and with Zebra's EA3600 Network Connect for Automation, the DS3608-DPA and DS3678-DPA connect to your Industrial Ethernet network without third party conversion equipment. The DS3608-DPA/DS3678-DPA - the unstoppable performance you need to maximize workforce productivity, ensure traceability, reduce production cycle times and prevent unplanned production line downtime.Capture it all - from direct part marks to 1D/2D and wide 1D paper barcodesThe DS3608-DPA/DS3678-DPA can capture virtually every type of direct part mark (DPM) including laser etch, ink mark, chemical etch, inkjet mold, cast, thermal spray and dot peen. In addition, the same scanner can capture barcodes printed on labels in virtually any condition - including damaged, dirty, poorly printed or under shrinkwrap - as well as 4-inch wide 1D barcodes found on picklists, carton labels and packages. This dual functionality provides excellent value: you can use the same scanner on the production line for end-to-end track and trace as well as throughout the plant floor and warehouse.Ultra-rugged - the most indestructible design in its classThe DS3608-DPA/DS3678-DPA is our most rugged scanner yet, with the highest drop, tumble and sealing specification in its class. The DS3608-DPA/DS3678-DPA is built to survive an 8 ft./2.4 m drop to concrete - 23 percent more durable than any other scanner in this class. The scanners operate reliably after 5,000 tumbles, simulating the real-world tumbling that occurs with a drop. Both models are dust proof, spray proof and waterproof to IP67 - they can be sprayed down with jetting water and even be submersed in water.Advanced illumination systemAdvanced 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.Easy management with complimentary industry-best toolsRemotely configure scanners, upgrade firmware, format data properly for your back end and monitor PowerPrecision+ battery statistics and more with 123Scan and Scanner Management Service (SMS).
