Safety First

This extraordinary scanner is designed to deliver maximum protection against the spread of bacteria. There are special plastics that go with the product to handle constant wipe-downs with the widest selection of the harshest disinfectants. The physical design of the housing is smooth; there are zero ‘nooks and crannies,’ and there are no open holes. This leaves no place for bacteria to hide.

Capture Everything

With the DS8100-HC Series in hand, your healthcare workers can capture even the most challenging barcodes. The unique combination of hardware and advanced algorithms makes it easy to capture small and dense barcodes on curved and reflective foil surfaces such as IV bags, medication wrappers, and medication vials; ultra-tiny, poorly printed, shiny, crinkled, distorted, soiled or damaged barcodes; and electronic barcodes on dimly lit displays.

Rest for your Patients

With the DS8100-HC, you can give your patients more of the one thing they really need to get better: rest. Regarding Night Mode including Vibrate, there’s no annoying beeper to wake a sleeping patient. Workstation Lamp Mode, the DS8100-HC doubles as a lamp — no need to turn on lights in a patient room.

Battery Life

Want to go cordless but don’t want the hassle of battery management? The cordless DS8178-HC is the answer. The PowerPrecision+ smart battery provides 24 hours of power — no need to change the battery at every shift change. A wealth of battery metrics enables better battery management. With the exclusive only-from Zebra battery charge gauge on the scanner, workers can always see remaining battery power at a glance.

Wi-Fi Friendly

You’re hesitant to deploy cordless technology — you can’t risk adding devices that could interfere with access to crucial data on your WLAN (Wireless local area network) — and then there’s security. But with the Wi-Fi Friendly mode, the DS8100-HC operates on channels that aren’t shared with your WLAN, eliminating the potential for interference. With FIPS 140-2 certified encryption, you rest assured that your data is safe and secure.

The Device Can be Used Throughout the Hospital

The DS8100-HC scanners can be used in several applications throughout the hospital. Some of these applications include:

  • Bedside medication administration
  • Pharmacy medications intake
  • Specimen tracking
  • Blood transfusions
