Motorola DS6707-DP Handheld DPM Digital Imager Scanner Review


Today’s businesses and industries want to capture as much data as they can. Data is being used to drive decision-making and improve the delivery of goods and services. It’s not uncommon, therefore, for a business to have a variety of data capture needs. The Motorola DS6707-DS enables enterprises to invest in a single handheld scanning device capable of meeting all data-capture demands. Symbol DS6707-HD from Motorola
The alternative is investing in a multitude of devices, which can complicate the workflow by requiring employees to learn which devices scan which types of barcode images and frequently switch between scanning devices in the course of a single shift. That’s not practical in the modern environment that thrives on productivity.
Capable of scanning virtually every type of 1D and 2D barcode images, as well as DPM (direct part marks), the Motorola DS6707-DP is one of the most versatile handheld scanning devices on the market. For this reason, it’s commonly used in industries such as healthcare, aerospace, and automotive, which typically have a broad set of data capture requirements.
Applications and Typical Uses
The Motorola DS6707-DP is a general-purpose scanner with maximum data capture flexibility. That means it can capture practically all 1D and 2D barcode images, as well as direct part marks (DPM). One standout feature is the DS607-DP’s ability to capture the most challenging DPM: dot peen.
If your application requires the capture of a variety of images and data types, the Motorola DS6707-DP offers the versatility you need. Healthcare, aerospace, and automotive are just a few examples of applications for which the DS6707-DP is well-suited.
Other industries, such as government, defense, oil and gas, utility, manufacturing, and others, can also take advantage of the versatile scanning capabilities of the Motorola DS607-DP. For many organizations, it just makes sense to invest in a scanner with broad capabilities from the start, so you’re prepared to meet changing demands as they arise.
Scanning Capabilities
Direct part mark scanning, at one time, required the use of sophisticated, complex, and expensive systems that, often, didn’t meet acceptable scanning performance standards anyway. The Motorola DS6707-DP is one of a few handheld scanners available today that completely streamline the process of capturing DPM data in a much more cost-effective, higher-quality manner.
The combination of DPM data capture with 1D, 2D, postal, and PDF417 scanning capabilities means a single handheld scanning device can now meet all of your enterprise data capture demands. The DS6707-DP offers an omnidirectional scanning pattern, viewfinder, and aiming bulls-eye, all in a simple-to-use design that requires virtually no training.
The Motorola DS6707-DP reads 1D barcodes down to a density of 3 mil, and 2D barcodes down to a density of 4 mils and 2mm x 2mm in size. It’s capable of scanning the challenging dot peen DPM, as well as laser etch, ink mark, chemical etch, inkjet mold, cast and thermal spray.
Irregular, reflective, curved, and shiny surfaces are no match for the Motorola DS6707-DP. This handheld scanner can tackle virtually any scanning demand, with a set of integrated features that effectively diffuse light and add direct light when needed to capture low-contrast barcodes, even on polished surfaces.
A general-purpose handheld scanner, the Motorola DS6707-DP isn’t designed to withstand extended exposure to harsh chemicals or extreme weather, but it does offer sound durability features that make it a durable option for its intended use.
For example, the Motorola DS6707-DP isn’t affected by lighting conditions; it’s immune to both artificial lighting and direct sunlight, saving users from frustrating scanning difficulties in less-than-ideal lighting conditions. In testing, the DS6707-DP withstands repeated drops to concrete from a height of six feet, and it has a wide storage temperature range of -40° to 158° F. It can operate in temperatures ranging from 32° to 122° F.
Additional Features and Functionality
Not only can the Motorola DS6707-DP scan quickly and accurately – on the first scan – in all types of lighting, but it offers some beneficial image transfer capabilities, too. Images can be exported in several different formats, including Bitmap, Jpeg, and Tiff, ensuring compatibility with your other systems and software applications.
It also offers text enhancement technology, which ensures legibility of text in any scanned documents, which eliminates the need to make multiple scanning attempts to obtain a legible document. Image transfer speed is rapid with both USB and RS232 interfaces, at up to 12 Megabits per second via USB and up to 115 kb baud rate via RS232.
All in all, the Motorola DS6707-DP’s features and capabilities are designed to make the data capture process smooth and efficient for modern enterprises with a variety of scanning requirements. With this versatile scanner, you need to invest in just a single device for your data capture demands, and with speed and accuracy guaranteed, data capture is a streamlined process rather than a frustrating, time-consuming task that damages staff productivity.
