Rugged devices are mission critical in a tough environment, like manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, and transportation and logistics. Between the bumps, drops, and tumbles on hard surfaces to exposure to extreme temperatures, hardware like barcode scanners needs to be tougher than the conditions where they’re used.

Zebra has long been known for rugged reliability for barcode scanners, thermal printers, mobile computers, and other enterprise technology. So, it was a bit of surprise when they introduced something even tougher than the rugged barcode scanners that have served their purpose admirably.

The Zebra 3600 Ultra-Rugged Series of barcode scanners raises the bar once again. These power tools manage to surpass any standard. Drop a 3600 in a bucket of water (and leave it there for up to 30 minutes) or spray it with a hose. Use it in searing heat or freezing cold. Drop it 8 feet onto a concrete floor. It will keep working. Zebra’s Ultra-Rugged barcode scanners are the only ones with two sealing ratings: IP65 and IP67 (and the only barcode scanner with an IP67 rating).

Yes, it’s tough, but the 3600 is also a top performer. Use it to scan scratched, dirty, or damaged barcodes with one click. You can even capture barcodes under shrinkwrap or frost. This indestructible workhorse also lets you capture up to 20 barcodes with one pull of the trigger—from a few inches away or up to 70 feet—and one battery charge is good for about 70,000 scans. So, the 3600 Ultra-Rugged scanners are incredibly efficient.

The Zebra 3600 Ultra-Rugged barcode scanners are available in a wide variety of models, both corded and cordless (with Bluetooth 4.0 lightning speed). You can choose from standard range, extended range, high density, and direct part marks (DPM).
