Today’s shoppers don’t want to wait in long lines at the checkout or returns desk. The DS4600 Series offers the versatility and scanning performance you need to keep transactions fast and lanes flowing smoothly throughout the whole store. This feature-rich family helps associates scan items of all sizes, read barcodes in nearly any condition and handle transactions of all kinds. There is a DS4600 Series model for every need in your store. Bulky items in a shopping cart, a customer’s driver’s license at the returns desk, a mobile coupon at checkout, tiny barcodes in the jewelry department—the DS4600 Series can capture it all. The increased efficiency shrinks lines and keeps customers coming back again and again. And our unique DataCapture DNA and industry-preferred management tools make it easier than ever to integrate, deploy and manage your scanners. The DS4600 Series—more data capture versatility, more range and more innovation.





Capture It All with the DS4600 Series

No matter what kind of data you need to capture in your store, there is a DS4600 Series model that is ready for the job. Scan 1D and 2D barcodes, whether they’re printed on a label or displayed on a phone. Capture DotCode and dotted DataMatrix barcodes through cellophane, as well as the tiny and dense barcodes found on jewelry tags. Read wide barcodes on packages and cartons in the backroom. You can even collect data from IDs and travel documents using Optical Character Recognition (OCR), or parse driver’s license information for age verification, returns monitoring, loyalty and credit card applications. The result? Superior value. You can deploy a single scanner family for virtually every scanning need across your store.

Count on Zebra’s Performance to Keep Your Lines Moving

Zebra’s DS4308 set the bar for decode range, and you can count on the same “can’t miss” range from the DS4600 Series. The DS4608-SR can capture UPC codes up to 28 inches away, enabling checkout associates to easily reach items in a customer’s shopping cart without leaving the cashwrap. The 800 MHz microprocessor, high-resolution megapixel sensor and Zebra’s exclusive PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology provide instant barcode capture on even the most challenging barcodes. And a patented rear engine design enables the DS4600 Series to read wider barcodes at every distance, compared to other scanners with a similar field of view. As a result, associates can focus on your customers, rather than positioning items.

Day-in, Day-out Dependability

The DS4600 Series is engineered for durability, inside and out. IP52 sealing protects against spills, while a patented double-sealed optical system guards the critical optical components from dust and liquid—ensuring that the ‘eye’ of the scanner always captures the sharpest possible barcode image for fast and reliable decoding. The recessed scan window protects against smudges, dirt and scratches, which can
