ZEBRA CS3000 SERIES
1-D LASER SCANNING DEVICE
ENABLE ANYWHERE ANYTIME COST-EFFECTIVE MOBILE 1-D LASER SCANNING
The innovative Zebra CS3000 Series enables enterprises to easily implement 1-D laser scanning where either mobility
or the cost and size of a traditional scanning device is an inhibitor. The tiny device is affordably priced and fits in a
pocket or on a lanyard. The CS3000 can be utilized in standalone mode for the batch scanning of bar codes, while the
CS3070 offers batch mode as well as real-time bar code data transmission to a host application via a wireless
Bluetooth® connection to smartphones, laptops and more. Managing the data in batch mode is easy. Once connected
to a host, the batch data can be configured for automatic transfer to an application. Since captured scans are placed
in a user-definable standard ASCII file type, the information can be easily utilized to populate order forms,
spreadsheets and inventory lists. The result is a new level of affordability for 1-D scanning — and the ability to
streamline, error proof and simplify more business processes.
ZEBRA SIGNATURE ERGONOMICS ENSURE USER COMFORT AND EASE OF USE
The easy to use CS3000 Series requires virtually no training to operate. The highly intuitive simple 2-button interface
makes scanning easy. In addition, grooves that guide hand and fingers into the most comfortable scanning position
combine with soft rubber trigger buttons to bring comfort to the most scan intensive tasks.
A mobile bar code scanner
with two modes of operation:
batch for uploading data to a
host at a later time or
real-time capture and
transmission to a host
application via a wireless
Bluetooth connection to
smartphones, PDAs and
laptops

ENTERPRISE CLASS CAPACITY, RELIABILITY AND TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP (TCO)
The large memory capacity allows workers to capture over a million bar codes, providing ample support for the largest
batch operations. The non-volatile memory ensures that batch data is retained. Built-in business durability provides a
low TCO. A 4 ft./1.2 m drop specification and the ability to survive 500 1.64 ft./0.5 m consecutive tumbles combine to
ensure dependable operation. And a 24-hour batch/12-hour Bluetooth mode battery cycle time insures well over single
shift scanning performance on a charge.
BEST-IN-CLASS HIGH PERFORMANCE SCANNING
The integrated SE955 scan engine delivers Zebra's world-renowned scanning quality and reliability. The wide working
range provides extraordinary application flexibility, allowing users to capture bar codes from near contact to as far as
45 in./114.3 cm away, in virtually any lighting condition. Aggressive performance enables the capture of even
damaged and poor quality bar codes. And a time stamp can be automatically appended to each batch scan, providing
additional business intelligence.
AUTOMATE YOUR WORKFLOW WITH TWO FLEXIBLE OPERATIONAL MODES — BATCH AND REAL
TIME
In batch mode, this pocket friendly device allows guards and custodial staff to scan bar codes on entry doors and
other locations, and upload the time and date stamped data at the end of a shift to document the accurate completion
of activities. Outside the enterprise, manufacturers and distributors can provide customers with a CS3000 to scan
inventory as it is used, effectively automating the ordering process at the point of consumption.
In real-time mode, the Bluetooth enabled CS3070 can be paired with virtually any existing smartphone, allowing route
drivers to easily scan the items in a delivery or on the store shelves to help automate and error proof the delivery and
ordering process.
