Purpose-built for healthcare

Instant decoding with PRZM Intelligent Imaging

The DS2200-HC Series is engineered to ensure instant and accurate decoding of the many barcodes found at the point-of-care, labs and pharmacies. Only from Zebra, PRZM’s software decode algorithms deliver superior performance on poor quality and challenging barcodes. And a wide working range minimizes the precision needed when positioning the scanner for point-and-shoot simplicity. The result is the first-time, every-time scanning your caregivers need to improve patient safety and workflow efficiency.

Easy to clean and sanitize

Unlike general purpose scanners, the DS2200-HC Series features a disinfectant-ready housing designed to handle regular sanitizing with popular disinfectants.

“Do Not Disturb” mode

Scanner feedback is critical, and so is the patient experience. For sound-sensitive environments, Zebra’s Direct Decode Indicator projects illumination on the barcode to indicate a good decode. Clinicians instantly know if a medicine, wristband or IV bag was properly scanned, while patients aren’t disturbed by a loud beep.

Patent-pending technology for the most intuitive aiming

An innovative aim line removes the guesswork by guiding clinicians to scan at the ideal distance from the barcode.

Full-shift battery power guaranteed

With 14 hours of power, your cordless DS2278-HC scanners are always available for use—there’s no need to waste valuable time recharging a battery during a clinician’s shift.

On-the-fly switching between handheld and hands-free scanning

In the lab and pharmacy, some tasks may be better suited for handheld scanning and others for hands-free. With the DS2200-HC Series, switching modes is fast and easy. Simply place the scanner in the optional presentation stand to automatically switch to hands-free mode; then pick up the scanner for handheld mode.

Fast, flexible and easy charging

Plug the scanner directly into the host or any standard wall socket via the Micro USB cable to charge the cordless DS2278-HC in just an hour. The presentation cradle, which provides hands-free scanning, charges the DS2278-HC in just four hours. The presentation cradle charges the battery during use, so you can keep the scanner in service during charging. And since the presentation cradle doesn’t require a separate power supply, charging can take place directly on the workstation-on-wheels.

Easy to deploy and manage

Pre-configured and ready to use, right out of the box The DS2200-HC Series couldn’t be easier to setup. Right out of the box, the scanner is configured for the healthcare applications you use everyday, while auto-host detect cables automatically select the right host interface—just plug in the scanner and you’re ready to go.

Deploy anywhere in the world

With support for 97 international keyboards, the DS2200-HC Series is easy to deploy all around the world.

Easily customize settings with 123Scan

123Scan is intuitive enough for first-time users. You can easily create configuration barcodes to program scanners, update firmware or stage a large number of devices.

Easiest pairing on the planet

With Zebra's industry-first Scan-to-Connect technology, clinicians can pair the cordless DS2278-HC with any Bluetooth-enabled PC, tablet or smartphone with a single scan.

Easy integration with tablet-based EMR applications

The DS2200-HC Series offers all the features you need to add high-quality scanning to your tablet-based Electronic Medical Record (EMR) application. The Micro USB cable provides a low-cost charging alternative to a cradle. And with Zebra's simplified app development tools, you can easily configure and update the DS2200-HC Series right from the tablet.

Eliminate Bluetooth interference with Zebra’s proprietary Wi-Fi Friendly Mode

Offered exclusively from Zebra, Wi-Fi Friendly mode ensures that your cordless DS2278-HC scanners do not operate on channels that are shared with your Wi-Fi network, protecting Wi-Fi network performance for your caregivers, clinicians, patients and visitors.

A battery and charging system designed to last

The long-lasting 2400 mAh Lithium Ion battery in the cordless DS2278-HC will likely never need to be replaced, reducing total cost of ownership and simplifying everyday management by eliminating the need to purchase and manage a battery pool. Additionally, the position of the charging contacts in the DS2278-HC’s charging cradle, combined with Zebra’s exclusive Connect+ Contact Technology, assures reliable, corrosion-free charging over the life of the scanner.

Control your scanners from a smartphone, tablet or PC

You can easily control the beeper, LED and Symbology settings; display scanned barcode data; access model and serial number information and more from Windows, Android and iOS hosts.

No-cost tools to meet advanced management and application development needs

If you have scanners in different locations, you can remotely manage them all with Zebra's Scanner Management Service (SMS) application. This complimentary tool makes it easy to configure and update the firmware for any DS2200-HC Series device that is plugged into a host—no depot staging or user action is required.
