Motorola Solutions Introduces New High-Performance Symbol DS4308 Imagers

September 9, 2014

Offered in four unique models, easy-to-use scanners help retailers, hospitals and manufacturing organizations quickly capture virtually any bar code

Motorola Solutions’ new lightweight Symbol DS4308 2D imagers provide the ergonomics, flexibility and advanced performance necessary to comfortably scan bar codes nearer and farther than any other scanner in its class. The DS4308 leverages Motorola’s most advanced imaging engine to quickly capture virtually any bar code - whether it is a high-density bar code on merchandise, displayed on the screen of a mobile phone, or printed on paper and damaged, scratched or dirty. Green and red light indicators can also be mixed and matched with audio to provide scanning feedback in any environment whether it is a noisy manufacturing production line or a quiet hospital room.



  • The DS4308-SR imager can scan both traditional and electronic bar codes on the screen of mobile phones, drivers’ licenses and UPC codes out to 28 inches, making it easy to scan large or heavy items in a shopping cart from the opposite side of the counter.
  • The DS4308-HD imager offers a 16.5-inch read range that is ideal for general point-of-sale (POS) scanning and can also capture small, high-density bar codes found on electronics, jewelry and other small items.
  • The DS4308P features a built-in adjustable stand that enables workers to switch instantly between handheld and hands-free scanning by simply picking it up or putting it down.
  • For bar code scanning at the patient bedside, the DS4308-HC imager provides IP42 sealing and a specially designed, disinfectant-ready plastic housing that can be safely wiped down with a variety of harsh chemicals that help prevent the spread of germs. This scanner can also capture bar code data from curved reflective surfaces, such as vials, syringes and IV bags.
  • Retailers, hoteliers, quick-serve restaurants, logistics and light manufacturing organizations can use the DS4308 for mobile loyalty cards, mobile coupons, quality control and inventory tracking applications.
  • Service from the Start is available for the DS4308 series and can provide coverage for normal wear and tear as well as accidental breakage preventing unexpected repair costs.
