The DS9808-R provides unparalleled flexibility to any size business and boasts a pair of industry firsts. The DS9808-R is not only the first combination 1D/2D bar code scanner and RFID reader, it also represents a new RFID product category—the first combination handheld/hands-free UHF RFID reader. By customizing and combining data capture processes into one unit, the DS9808 R minimizes training for employees, while ensuring consistent uptime and unsurpassed ROI.
The comprehensive RFID feature set enables retailers to maximize the value of RFID technology in the store. In addition to reading tags to complete purchases, capabilities include: Commission tags on new inventory items and returned goods. Built-in filtering prevents accidental multiple entries of the same tag – Associates will hear a single beep as the tag data is captured and entered into the transaction, just as if a bar code was scanned, providing associates with a familiar and intuitive process that eliminates the need for training. Special RFID data conversion software for on-the-fly translation of the RFID EPC tag data to UPC bar code data. A pilot test or full RFID solution can be implemented quickly, easily and cost-effectively into any existing retail technology environment.
The DS9808-R allows associates to instantly switch scanning modes. Switching from hands-free presentation style scanning to handheld mode is as easy as picking up the device. The unique tri-function trigger design enables retailers to assign up to three specific functionalities in the same trigger. For example, the upper and lower triggers could activate the bar code reader and pressing both triggers together could activate the RFID reader.
