Zebra DS2278 Cordless 2D Imager

2D barcodes have made their way to your Point of Sale, appearing on everything from the items your customers are purchasing to printed and electronic coupons and loyalty cards. Your 1D scanner can’t capture the new 2D codes, leading to exceptions that slow down the check-out process and frustrate customers at that key last personal touchpoint in your store. But with the DS2200 Series, you can scan it all. You get an affordable 1D/2D imager that doesn’t compromise performance or features for price. Your workers get best-in-class first-time, every-time scanning with point-and-shoot simplicity. You get an imager that couldn’t be easier to deploy and manage. And you can choose the model that best fits your POS needs — the corded DS2208 or the cordless DS2278.* The DS2200 Series — the affordability your budget demands, with the deployment, ease of use and management simplicity your business requires.
