Prevent medical errors, improve patient safety and increase caregiver productivity. The DS6878-HC cordless imager from Zebra enables hospitals to automate data capture, improve data accuracy, increase productivity and streamline everyday processes in patient rooms, admitting, 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 barcodes and other images, allowing caregivers to remain focused on the patient - not the technology.

  • Designed for deployment on a computer or workstation on wheels (COW or WOW)

    USB charging capability eliminates a power supply and the typical cable management headaches normally associated with mounting a cordless scanner to a medical cart, computer cart or workstation (COW or WOW); horizontal or vertical installation provides the flexibility to keep the work surface clear while ensuring that the scanner is always in easy reach and charging.
  • Disinfectant-ready

    IP43 sealing and a specially designed plastic housing allow safe wipe-down and cleansing with a wide variety of harsh chemicals.
  • Lightweight ergonomic design

    Easy to hold regardless of hand size; reduces fatigue; enables all day scanning comfort to protect productivity in scan-intensive applications.
  • Superior durability

    Offers Zebra's best-in-class drop specification - the ability to survive 6 ft./1.8m drops to concrete - and IP43 sealing, ensuring reliable operation in spite of everyday spills, drops and bumps.
  • Government grade security with Zebra MAX Secure

    FIPS 140-2 certification enables compliance with the most stringent industry security regulations, including HIPAA, PCI and requirements for sensitive government applications (requires FIPS configuration scanner and CR0078-P base).
  • Comprehensive advanced data capture

    Captures 1-D and 2-D barcodes, signatures, documents such as drivers licenses and insurance cards, facial images for identification, video footage and more; eliminates the need to purchase multiple types of devices; supports the creation and maintenance of electronic medical records (EMRs).
  • Superior high-performance scanning on all barcodes

    The integrated revolutionary Zebra SE4500 imager eliminates the performance degradation common in 2-D scanning, delivering: laser-like performance on both 1-D and 2-D codes; rapid and accurate capture of even poor quality and damaged barcodes; and full omnidirectional scanning, which eliminates the need to precisely align barcode and imager, improves ergonomics and protects productivity.
  • Bluetooth v2.1 with EDR

    Provides a secure wireless connection to the scanner base station for cordless convenience and safety.
  • RSM (Remote Scanner Management) ready

    Reduces total cost of ownership by enabling remote, network-based device management of all devices in all locations.
