Unparalleled Performance on Virtually Every Barcode in Any Condition
Only the DS8100-HC Series combines the power of an 800 MHz microprocessor, a high-resolution megapixel sensor and Zebra's exclusive PRZM technology. With this unique combination of hardware and advanced algorithms, the DS8100-HC Series instantly captures the most problematic barcodes found in pharmacies, labs and at the point-of-care - including dense, tiny, curved, poorly printed, shiny, crinkled, faded, distorted, dirty or damaged, as well as electronic barcodes on dimly lit displays.

First-of-its-kind Housing Offers Maximum Protection Against the Spread of Infection
Only the DS8100-HC offers a purpose-built housing specially designed to help prevent the spread of bacteria. Special plastics allow for Safe wipe-downs with the widest selection of the harshest and most aggressive disinfectants used in today's hospitals. And concealed screw holes and seams eliminate areas where bacteria could hide - even after a wipedown.

Flexible User-Selectable Feedback Including Night Mode with Vibrate
Choose from a wide array of easily controllable feedback modes designed for virtually any hospital environment. From the Intensive Care Unit to a quiet night shift or a busy and more noisy day shift, there is a feedback mode that will instantly notify your healthcare workers that a barcode was properly captured - without disturbing patients.

In addition to the standard LED, vibrate and beeper feedback, Zebra's Direct Decode Indicator flashes illumination onto the barcode to confirm that it has been captured. Clinicians can be confident that a medicine, specimen or IV bag was properly scanned - without interrupting the work flow to look at the scanner. With Night Mode, healthcare workers can switch between vibrate and beeper feedback by simply depressing the trigger for a few seconds.

And it's easy to control it all. Enable vibrate, beeper and the Direct Decode Indicator individually or in any combination, and easily adjust beeper volume, beeper frequency and illumination intensity.

Patient Safety
The DS8100's green aiming spot avoids blue wavelengths, which can potentially cause eye injury.

the power they need for the busiest shift. Devices are always available - no need for charging mid-shift.
