Zebra DS2278 Bluetooth Kit: The Future of Seamless Scanning

All-Around Scanning Excellence In today’s dynamic retail environment, 2D barcodes are becoming ubiquitous. From items on sale to digital coupons, these new-age barcodes are everywhere. Enter the Zebra DS2278, the perfect solution to bridge the gap between traditional 1D scanning and the contemporary 2D codes. This Bluetooth-enabled scanner is tailored to offer the convenience of cordless scanning with point-and-shoot precision. It ensures a hassle-free checkout experience, eliminating slowdowns and ensuring a smooth customer journey. With the DS2278, you’re not just investing in a scanner; you're investing in the future of retail.


Out-of-the-Box Ease Unbox, plug in, and go! The Zebra DS2278 is designed to make your life easier from the get-go. It’s pre-configured for most scanning applications, letting you get started instantly. Thanks to its auto-host detect cables, setting it up with your Point of Sale system is a breeze.
