Symbol DS 6878-HC Scanner

Zebra DS8100-HC Series A newer version of this item is available.
It is replaced by the Zebra DS8100-HC Series.
Designed specifically to meet the unique requirements of health care, the Symbol DS 6878-HC integrates seamlessly into health care facilities, including admissions, pharmacies, patient rooms and laboratories. With revolutionary scan technology, intuitive interface, and ergonomic and disinfectant-ready design, the DS 6878-HC is easy to install virtually anywhere inside the hospital environment. The scanner's flexible base options enable easy mounting horizontally or vertically on walls, cabinets and on COWs and WOWs (cart on wheels/workstation on wheels). Cordless freedom via Bluetooth allows users to easily move to the bar code, eliminating the hazards associated with cables as well as the need to disturb or inconvenience patients, while offering the flexibility required for rapid data capture in emergency situations.
