The scanners also support images, direct part marks (DPM) and item unique identification (IUID) symbologies. Equipped with a 624-MHz microprocessor, the DS3500 series can decode barcodes within milliseconds, regardless of size or density, according to Motorola. Features include fast-pulse illumination and fast sensor shutter speed as well as omni-directional scanning functionality.
The DS3500 series of digital scanners includes six models, three of which are available as cordless versions with integrated Bluetooth technology. The DS3508-SR corded and DS3578-SR cordless scanners are designed for scan-intensive, fast-paced warehouses, transportation and logistics settings and retail backrooms. The DS3508-HD corded and DS3578-HD cordless scanners can read very small and dense 1D and 2D barcodes frequently found in light and industrial manufacturing environments. The DS3508-DP corded and DS3578-DP cordless models combine DPM-specific software with IUID parsing capabilities often needed by government agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Defense.
