Highlights for Motorola DS6878-HD Handheld Barcode Scanner

Prevent medical errors, improve patient safety and increase caregiver productivity. The DS6878-HD cordless imager from Motorola 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 bar codes and other images, allowing caregivers to remain focused on the patient - not the technology.

IP43 sealing and a specially designed plastic housing allows 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 Motorola's best-in-class drop specification and IP43 sealing, ensuring reliable operation in spite of everyday spills, drops and bumps.

Comprehensive advanced data capture
Captures 1D and 2D bar codes, 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 bar codes
The integrated revolutionary Motorola imager eliminates the performance degradation common in 2D scanning, delivering: laser-like performance on both 1D and 2D codes; rapid and accurate capture of even poor quality and damaged bar codes; and full omnidirectional scanning, which eliminates the need to precisely align bar code and imager, improves ergonomics and protects productivity.
