Announces the NEW Symbol DS3408 DPM/UID Imager!
Announces the NEW Symbol DS3408 DPM/UID Imager!
Reads All Bar Codes and Direct Part Marks (DPM/UID) Automatically!
The all new DS3408 DPM Series industrial DPM/UID readers from Symbol Technologies use digital signal processing (DSP)
CCD imaging technology to accurately read laser, dot peen marked, chemical etch and other types of direct part
markings at distances from 1” to 12” or more. In addition the DS3408 reads all types of two-dimensional (2D) and
one-dimensional (1D) printed bar codes automatically.
A Non Contact DPM/UID High Performance Reader with Variable Focus!
The DS3408 DPM comes equipped with newly designed charge-coupled device (CCD) image sensor and special direct part
mark reading software, which allow it to more accurately capture and process DPM at speeds, angles and distances never
before seen in a DPM/UID reader. With Symbol’s patented variable focus technology, you are able to read DPM at
ranges from 1” to over 12” automatically without refocusing. In addition, the DS3408 DPM’s omni-directional
reading functionality lets operators quickly capture both DPM/UID marks and bar codes from any angle,
eliminating the need to read DPM/UID straight on. The DS3408 DPM has the widest working range of any DPM
Reader in its class. Its smart focus technology, unique to Symbol, allows you to read DPM/UID marks and bar codes
regardless of the size or density of the code from a variety of distances automatically. This means that this single device
can work well for all your DPM/UID and barcode scanning needs.
Reads Very Low Contrast and Poorly Marked DPM/UID With Ease!
Because the DS3408 DPM uses Digital Signal Processing (DSP) CCD technology instead of cameras to read DPM/UID
marks, the DS3408 DPM can easily distinguish and read very low contrast or poorly marked DPM/UID marks with ease.
No other camera based DPM reader on the market today can make that claim! In addition the DS3408 DPM can read
DPM/UID marks as tiny as 4 mil to more than 12 inches or more in size. Because of Symbol’s extensive bar code reading
knowledge acquired from years of being the world’s largest manufacturer of bar code reading devices, the DS3408 DPM
can read pin marked DPM/UID marks easily from angles as steep as 80 degree tilt away from
perpendicular! Other camera based imagers can only read at a 7 degree tilt.
Best of all, by using DSP technology to read DPM/UID marks on the DS3408 DPM, we are able to offer a reader that is
priced significantly less than our competition while providing much higher performance on all UID/DPM marks.
