FEATURES
Four models to meet
any data capture need
ZEBRA DS457 SERIES
NEXT-GENERATION FIXED MOUNT IMAGER
GET HANDS-FREE CONVENIENCE AND EXTRAORDINARY SCANNING SPEED ON ANY BAR CODE…
ON ANY SURFACE
Enable high-volume hands-free scanning from the retail POS and airport boarding gate to the manufacturing
production line with the Zebra DS457. With comprehensive data capture, your workers can scan virtually any bar code
— including 1-D, 2-D and direct part marks. No matter what type of bar code is presented, or whether it is printed on a
paper label, etched into a product or displayed on a mobile phone screen, breakthrough digital imaging technology
delivers extraordinary scanning speed. The tiny footprint fits in the most space constrained areas. Workers can
choose presentation or trigger-activated mode, providing the flexibility for a wide variety of applications. And while the
DS457 can be integrated into a wide variety of products, its sleek design is just as at home in customer-facing areas,
such as a retail counter.
TRUE BEST-IN-CLASS PERFORMANCE ON ALL BAR CODES
With stunning performance on virtually every bar code — 1-D and 2-D plus direct part marks — your workers can
capture bar codes as fast as they can present items for scanning. There is never a need to pause between scans,
protecting productivity.
FITS IN THE SMALLEST OF SPACES
The tiny DS457 is ideal where a zero or minimal footprint is required. At just 1.15 in. H x 2.3 in. L x 2.44 in. W (2.92 cm
H x 5.84 cm L x 6.2 cm W), this device can be mounted just about anywhere — attached to the register or under the
counter for a true zero footprint on the retail cashwrap to a space-constrained manufacturing cell or airport gate.
SCAN BAR CODES ON PRACTICALLY ANY SURFACE — INCLUDING MOBILE PHONE DISPLAYS
Your customers are rapidly adopting mobile bar codes — electronic versions of tickets, boarding passes and loyalty
cards that can be carried right in the mobile phone. Since the DS457 can read bar codes on mobile phone and
computer displays, you’re ready for this next generation bar code, protecting customer convenience, customer service
quality and employee productivity.
FLEXIBLE AND EASY TO INTEGRATE
The DS457 can be used as a standalone scanner or integrated into the most space-constrained products to bring
world-class scanning performance to mobile computers, handheld scanners, self-service kiosks, medical and
diagnostic instruments, lottery terminals and more. Integration into your product designs is easy — there is no optical,
mechanical or electrical engineering required. And in the event you already have a Zebra Miniscan deployed today,
the common interface allows you to simply swap scanners to cost-effectively boost scanning performance and quality
— no re-tooling or redesign of the installation area are required.
USERS ARE UP AND RUNNING IN MINUTES
SR (Standard Range)
designed for 1-D/2-D
intensive applications with
medium to large bar codes
HD (High Density) for the
tiny and dense codes
common in manufacturing
DL (Driver’s License parsing)
ideal for 1-D/2-D applications
that require the capture of
U.S. driver’s license ID
information
DP (Direct Part Marks) for
rapid capture of every type
of direct part mark, including
dot peen, laser etch,
chemical etch, inkjet, mold,
cast and thermal spray;
capture marks on virtually
any surface, including metal,
rubber, plastic and glass
Scans any bar code
on paper, mobile
phones and computer
displays
Scan virtually any bar code
on any medium; supports the
mobile bar codes your
customers are embracing
Comprehensive data
capture — 1-D, 2-D,
and DPM codes, driver
’s license parsing, still
images, video and
OCR
Diverse series that can meet
any fixed mount hands-free
scanning need
Powerful 624 MHz
processor, fast sensor
shutter speed and
patent pending
fastpulse illumination
Full omni-directional scanning eliminates the need to precisely align bar code and imager. A unique aiming pattern
with a bright central dot ensures quick, accurate scanning — even in the brightest lighting. The result is a highly
intuitive scanning function that increases worker productivity, virtually eliminating the need and cost associated with
training.
Delivers extraordinary
scanning speed on all bar
codes; increases throughput
and productivity
Tiny footprint
FOUR MODELS TO MEET ANY APPLICATION NEED
No matter what type of bar codes you need to capture, there is a model that will meet your needs.
Fits almost anywhere;
enables ‘invisible’ under the
counter installation
DS457-SR: Combination 1-D and 2-D bar code scanning. This standard range model is designed to meet the
needs of a wide variety of applications, offering the largest working range possible on the largest variety of bar codes.
DS457-HD: Optimized for comprehensive 2-D bar code capture. We took the DS457-SR Standard Range model
and optimized the focus functionality to accommodate the very tiny and dense 2-D bar codes frequently found in
manufacturing. Electronic manufacturers can ensure the right part is used at the right time on the production line. And
pharmaceutical manufacturers can track product as it is produced and packaged to meet track and trace regulations.
DS457-DL: Combination 1-D and 2-D bar code scanning plus driver’s license parsing. We added driver’s license
parsing to the DS457-SR Standard Range model to enable the instant decoding of the bar coded information on any
state driver’s license in the U.S. as well as other national ID documents to support a wide variety of value-added
applications. At the retail POS, the DS457-DL allows effortless auto-population of credit and loyalty cards, as well as
easy and error-proof age verification.
DS457-DP: Comprehensive support for 1-D and 2-D bar codes plus direct part marks. This powerful model starts
with the high-density scanning capability of the DS457-HD, and adds new algorithms that ensure easy reading of
anydirect part marks. Workers can easily capture even the most challenging direct part marks, including low-contrast
marks printed on black plastic, black rubber, steel and cast-iron.
WORLD CLASS SUPPORT FOR MAXIMUM UPTIME
For true service peace of mind, our Service from the Start Advance Exchange Support program offers
next-business-day device replacement to keep your DS457 imagers up and running. And since built-in
Comprehensive Coverage includes normal wear and tear as well as accidental damage to internal and external
components, unforeseen repair expenses are practically eliminated. The result is an extraordinary lifecycle,
extraordinary uptime — and a truly outstanding ROI.
