The DS6878-HC cordless imager enables hospitals to automate data capture, improve data accuracy, increase productivity and streamline everyday processes in patient rooms, laboratories and the pharmacy. Its matchless feature set meets the unique requirements of healthcare facilities. An intuitive and ergonomic design combines with dependable and rapid capture of bar codes and other images, allowing caregivers to remain focused on the patient, not the technology. The DS6878-HC is easy to install virtually anywhere inside the hospital environment - the flexible base options enable easy mounting horizontally or vertically on walls, cabinets and workstations. 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. When paired with the standard charging cradle, the DS6878-HC offers the ability to charge the scanner over the USB cable, eliminating the need for a separate power supply and reducing the management headaches associated with mounting a cordless scanner to a computer or workstation on wheels (COW or WOW).
