Zebra DS9808R

The DS9808-R is a ground-breaking POS device that represents two Zebra firsts. The DS9808-R is not only the first combination 1D/2D barcode scanner and RFID reader, it also represents a new RFID product category — the first combination handheld/hands-free UHF RFID reader.

In addition to UHF RFID tags, the DS9808-R offers the very latest in imaging technology, delivering record swipe speeds for 1D and 2D barcodes, as well as the ability to capture images and signatures.

Zebra’s DS9808-R is the first combination 1D/2D bar code scanner and RFID reader and the first combination handheld/hands-free UHF RFID reader. Its revolutionary imaging engine enables the capture of 1D and 2D bar codes as well as images and signatures, with record swipe speeds on both 1D and 2D bar codes. In addition, the read range for RFID tags can be adjusted to suit the environment. For example, the RFID read range in presentation mode can be decreased to prevent inadvertent reading of RFID tags in a nearby cash-wrap, while the range in handheld (triggered) mode can be increased to read RFID tags that are further away. The DS9808-R offers the flexibility to
accommodate virtually any type of data capture application, including support for: 1D and 2D paper and mobile bar codes, mobile coupons, mobile loyalty cards, mobile boarding passes, PDF417 bar codes, reading/writing* RFID tags


The comprehensive RFID feature set enables retailers to maximize the value of RFID technology in the store. In addition to reading tags to complete purchases, capabilities include: Commission tags on new inventory items and returned goods. Built-in filtering prevents accidental multiple entries of the same tag – Associates will hear a single beep as the tag data is captured and entered into the transaction, just as if a bar code was scanned, providing associates with a familiar and intuitive process that eliminates the need for training. Special RFID data conversion software for on-the-fly translation of the RFID EPC tag data to UPC bar code data. A pilot test or full RFID solution can be implemented quickly, easily and cost-effectively into any existing retail technology environment.
