The DS3408 industrial bar code scanner from Motorola uses digital imaging technology to accurately capture all types of two-dimensional (2D) and one-dimensional (1D) bar codes while offering the high performance typically found only in laser scanners. The DS3408 comes equipped with a charge-coupled device (CCD) image sensor, which allows more accurate capture and processing of bar codes at a faster pace than other digital scanners. In addition, the scanner's omnidirectional scanning functionality lets operators quickly capture bar codes from any angle, eliminating the need to line up bar codes with laser lines. The DS3408 has multiple interface capabilities that allow it to work with a variety of hosts.

The DS3400 Series industrial bar-code scanners from Symbol Technologies use digital imaging technology to accurately capture all types of two-dimensional (2D) and one-dimensional (1D) bar codes while offering the high performance typically found only in laser scanners. For capturing images and bar codes, the DS3408 is ideal. But if image capture and transfer capability is what you need, the DS3407 is perfect for today's applications, such as digital document storage and processing, as well as for image capture applications of the future.
High Performance That Speeds Productivity
With the DS3400 Series, you benefit from a scanning solution designed specifically for fast-paced production environments. The DS3407 and DS3408 come equipped with charge-coupled device (CCD) image sensors, which allow them to more accurately capture and process bar codes at a faster pace than other digital scanners. In addition, the scanners' omni-directional scanning functionality lets operators quickly capture bar codes from any angle, eliminating the need to line up bar codes with laser lines. The DS3400 Series has the widest working range of any scanner in its class. Its two-position smart focus technology, unique to Symbol, allows you to read bar codes regardless of the size or density of the code. This means that this single device can work well for all your scanning needs.
Ruggedized for Industrial-Grade Applications
The DS3400 Series provides resilience and performance in a ruggedized package. The scanners' exit windows are scratch-resistant and recessed for a higher level of durability, while their rugged housing, sealed to industry-leading IP65 standards against rain and dust, is designed to withstand repeated drops of up to six-and-a-half feet (two meters) onto concrete. In fact, the DS3407 and DS3408 maintained their reliability when subjected to drops in a specialized tumble test conducted in the widely recognized Symbol Industrial Design Labs. Their design virtually eliminates the chances of downtime occurring as a result of damage from being dropped.
An Investment for Now and the Future
The DS3400 Series doesn't just provide you with a scanning solution that meets current and future needs — it can also help protect your past investments as well. Both scanners offer the technology you need to scan newer bar-code symbologies such as 2D bar codes as well as 1D bar codes. The DS3407 offers the USB functionality and faster transfer rates that make it ideal for newer production environments, as well as the ability to capture and transfer images. In addition, the DS3408 includes a multi-interface that allows it to work with a variety of hosts. With the DS3400 Series, you can choose the scanner that is right for you — without having to worry about making a large investment in your overall architecture.
Reduce the Chances of Downtime
Symbol Enterprise Mobility Services are designed to ensure that every aspect of your mobility solution — from network design to ongoing service and support — works seamlessly and at maximum efficiency.
The DS3407 and DS3408 are backed by world-class service and support that is designed to reduce downtime by ensuring that any problems that may occur with the scanner are quickly resolved. It's this reliability, combined with their ruggedized features, that makes the Symbol DS3400 Series of scanners ideal for the manufacturing environment.
While the DS3407 and DS 3408 come with standard three-year warranties, Symbol offers a range of service programs, including the Service-from-the-Start Bronze Service Contract, a prepaid five-year Service Center program. By purchasing the service when you buy the scanners, you receive a higher value at a lower price than if you purchased the same service later.
