A one-of-a-kind hybrid design provides maximum flexibility, offering both handheld and hands-free scanning. While other products are handheld scanners retrofitted with a base, Zebra’s award-winning Industrial Design team created the DS9900 Series from the ground up for both handheld and hands-free use. You get Zebra’s industry-leading scanning technology, seamless switching between modes and superior ease of use, along with a wide range of innovative features that boost productivity. An RFID model combines a barcode scanner and RFID reader to extend the benefits of RFID to your point of sale. Empower your checkout stands with the DS9900 Series Hybrid Presentation Imager — the ultimate in performance and design.

Industry-best performance

Scan it all with virtually no exceptions

The DS9900 Series combines an 800 MHz microprocessor, a high-resolution megapixel sensor and Zebra’s exclusive PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology for unparalleled performance on 1D, 2D and Digimarc® barcodes. Problematic barcodes won’t slow down your checkout lanes. The DS9900 Series can instantly capture dense, poorly printed, damaged, crinkled, faded, distorted, low-contrast, and glossy printed barcodes, as well as electronic barcodes on dimly lit mobile phone displays.

Rapid-fire scanning to keep your lines moving

With the widest field of view in its class and an advanced illumination system, the DS9900 Series provides the near instant barcode capture you need to keep the busiest checkout lines moving. You get one of the industry’s top first-pass read rates — up to 240 in./610 cm per second. A large field of view makes presentation scanning easier than ever, enabling associates to focus on your shoppers rather than positioning items.

Bring RFID to your point of sale

If you are already benefiting from RFID in your supply chain, you can close the RFID loop by capturing RFID-tagged merchandise at the POS with the RFID model. Checkouts are easier than ever, since associates can scan multiple items at once without line of sight. Capturing RFID tags provides the real-time inventory visibility needed for timely re-ordering and trending analysis. The reader operates with just 5 VDC and does not require an external power supply. And complimentary RFID data conversion software lets you read RFID tags without modifying your existing POS application.

Purpose-built for hybrid scanning

Dynamic switching between hands-free and handheld modes

A patent-pending capacitive touch sensor and accelerometer work together to instantly switch to handheld mode as soon as an associate picks up the scanner. There are no mechanical components to wear out, providing fail-proof switching throughout the scanner’s life.

Hybrid ergonomics

The ergonomic handle is comfortably weighted and balanced, remarkably easy to pick up and aim in handheld mode. In presentation mode, the integrated adjustable stand offers a sturdy, compact solution that fits into space-constrained areas and frees up more space for impulse buys.

Two scanners in one

Handheld and presentation modes have different requirements for scanning. That’s why the DS9900 Series is purpose built for both modes. In presentation mode, the scan range is limited to prevent unintentional scanning of nearby items. In handheld mode, the scan range is extended up to 24 in./62 cm to easily reach items in the cart.

Durable and Ready for Life at the Checkout Stand

Day-in, day-out dependability

The DS9900 Series delivers the day-in, day-out dependable operation you need in your checkout lanes. Its proven single circuit board design eliminates a common point of failure, substantially increasing durability. Image quality is protected by a patented double-sealed optical scanning system, ensuring that the ‘eye’ of the DS9900 Series always captures the sharpest possible barcode for fast and reliable decoding. And the recessed scan window protects against smudges, dirt and scratches.

Designed to survive spills and drops

With IP52 sealing and elevated electronics, accidental spills and dust won’t impact operation1. Inadvertent drops aren’t a problem either — you can depend on reliable operation, even after multiple 5 ft./1.5 m drops to concrete and 2,000 consecutive 1.5 ft./0.5 m tumbles.

Boost Productivity with Zebra Innovations

Deactivate EAS tags while scanning

Optional EAS support allows associates to deactivate Checkpoint EAS tags while scanning the price, boosting productivity at the checkout and preventing erroneous alarms.

Doubles as a document scanner

With a single press of the scan trigger, Zebra’s Intelligent Document Capture can capture a high-resolution image of checks and full page documents. Smart software automatically compensates for variations in lighting and squares up the image for optimum clarity.

Streamline data collection with OCR

Support for OCR transmits scanned text to your application to expedite the collection of data from passports, ID cards and more. Capture multiple barcodes with one press of the scan trigger With Multi-Code Data Formatting (MDF), the DS9900 Series can scan multiple barcodes with a single trigger pull and transmit only the barcodes you need, in the order your application expects.

Identify poor-performing barcodes

Zebra’s ScanSpeed Analytics provides detailed performance metrics on each barcode captured — enabling you to identify and eliminate poor performing barcodes that slow down the checkout process. You can also view the number of decodes performed in handheld and hands-free mode to better understand how associates are using the scanner.

Single out one barcode from many

With Zebra’s Preferred Symbol, the DS9900 Series can capture and output only the preferred barcode, so associates no longer have to physically cover nearby barcodes before scanning.

Commission RFID tags on returns and more

In addition to reading RFID tags to complete a purchase, the DS9900 Series RFID model is capable of writing data to RFID tags — enabling staff to quickly commission tags on new inventory items and returned goods for faster processing.
