If you’re looking for extraordinary flexibility and performance in your handheld scanner, the next-generation scanning technology in the DS4308 delivers. Its truly extraordinary range does the job of two scanners, allowing you to scan nearer and farther than any other scanner in this class. Your workers can scan virtually any barcode.

The DS4308 does it all — 1D or 2D, electronic or printed on paper labels or plastic cards, even if the barcode is dirty, scratched or poorly printed. With PRZM Intelligent Imaging inside, your workers can capture barcodes as fast as they can pull the scan trigger. And that means no more Point-of-Sale exceptions that can turn into longer lines, longer wait times and lost sales. The DS4308 — a new class of scanner for a new world of barcodes.




PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology for next generation performance
Resets the bar 2-D imaging  by improving decode performance and snappiness, dramatically improving the user experience, user productivity, thoughput and wait times.


Scan any bar code on any medium
Scans 1-D, 2-D and PDF417 barcode printed on paper labels or displayed on mobile devices or computer screens.


Megapixel sensor for maximum data capture flexibility
Delivers the resolution required for longer-distance scanning, clear photos, sharp signatures and more accurate OCR data.


Largest “sweet spot” for can’t-miss point-and-shoot scanning simplicity
With a decode rang that allows users to scan any barcode type at any density nearer and farther than any other scanners in its class, scanning is truly second nature – users just point and shoot.


Omni-directional scanning
Enables true point-and-shoot scanning simplicity by eliminating the need to align barcode and scanner.


Durable design for superior uptime
Built to survive a 6 ft./1.83 m drop to concrete, the DS4308 delivers reliable operation, despite the inevitable everyday drops.


Adjustable beeper volume and frequency tone
You get the flexibility to adjust beeper characteristics for your environment – from a quiet boutique store to a noisy light industrial manufacturing production line.


Superior out-of-box experience
Smart auto-host detect cables automatically determine which interface is attached, eliminating the need to scan numerous configuration barcodes. Over 90 international keyboards are hosted within the scanner for easy setup, all around the world.


Unsurpassed aiming technology
Crisp and bright aiming dot has the reach and brightness needed for long distance scanning – as well as picklist mode.


Easy on the eyes
Thanks to special LED wavelength and recessed lighting, when a barcode is scanned, the light that is emitted is soft and unobtrusive, preventing eye fatigue and improving the environment for customers and workers.


Complimentary tools simplify and reduce the cost of everyday management
123Scan2 and Scanner Management Service (SMS) work hand-in-hand to reduce management time and cost by automating initial configuration and enabling remote management of you DS4308 scanners.
