Motorola DS9808-R Combines Barcode Scanner and RFID Reader in Single Device

The company’s first integrated barcode scanner and RFID reader, the Motorola DS9808-R future proofs businesses looking for a compact, easy-to-use hybrid device that scans both 1D and 2D barcodes, along with RFID tags.

Motorola designed their groundbreaking “next-generation” presentation imager with retail point of sale (POS) in mind. Now you only need one device for:

  • Hands-free and hand-held scanning
  • Reading both 1D and 2D barcodes, as well as PDF 417 symbologies
  • UHF RFID reading

As a result, the Motorola DS9808-R enables retailers to maximize the value of RFID technology in the store while providing tag reading capabilities to complete purchases quickly and efficiently. A single device provides:


Motorola DS9808-R takes the place of multiple devices by providing hands-free, hand-held scanning of both 1D and 2D barcodes, as well as RFID tags.

  • RFID usage for POS checkout, price checking, new inventory commission, separated inventory identification (e.g., fitting rooms), and returns processing
  • Instant translation of RFID EPC tag data to UPC barcode data, allowing retailers to implement RFID information into existing barcode-based inventory applications

Feeding data into retail apps

The Motorola DS9808-R can scan this comprehensive array of data capture technologies in record speed, with built-in support for mobile retail applications. It reads barcodes and images from mobile phone displays, allowing retailers to accommodate virtually any type of POS or inventory management application in mind. As a result, companies can benefit from:

  • Real-time, item-level inventory visibility
  • Timely re-ordering to eliminate out-of-stock items and the associated lost sales
  • Increased inventory turns
  • Lower inventory carrying costs
  • Instant trending analysis for better purchasing decisions
  • Timely shelf replenishment with minimal human intervention

“As the RFID market continues to expand, our customers are RFID-enabling more and more of their business processes. To do so, they need products that seamlessly meet the specifics of their real-world business requirements,” said Jason Kummerl, vice president of engineering, epcSolutions, Inc. “Motorola’s commitment to expanding its reader portfolio with new capabilities has enabled us to more effectively service key customers for whom extended range bar code scanning was a key requirement.”
