RS5000 1D/2D Want to maximize the productivity of your Zebra wearable computer users? With Zebra’s hands-free RS5000 scanner, you can. Your workers can capture virtually any barcode at lightning speed with point-and-shoot simplicity — 1D or 2D, in virtually any condition. When it comes to comfort, the RS5000 delivers — this lightweight, perfectly-balanced little scanner is worn on a single finger on either hand, leaving both hands free to handle materials. And since the warehouse, distribution center and manufacturing plants are some of the toughest environments, this little scanner is big on durability. Your workers can drop it, spray it with water and even use it in the freezer — and still expect reliable operation. Get the powerful little ring scanner that delivers more — more productive workers, more value out of your Zebra wearable computers and more satisfied customers.


Wide Working Range

Workers can capture barcodes from near contact to over 25 in./63.5 cm.

PRZM Intelligent Imaging for Unparalleled Scanning Performance

Only from Zebra, PRZM resets the bar for imaging by providing features that reduce decode time, enabling lightning fast capture of virtually any barcode in any condition. PRZM turns poor images into instantly useful images, so high quality images are available for decoding faster. PRZM then handles some of the processing typically handled in the decoder, increasing decoding speed, reducing power usage and improving battery cycle times. The result? The faster-than-ever accurate scanning your workers need to improve productivity and reduce cycle times in your operations.

Ambidextrous Operation

With the convenient swivel feature, your workers can easily switch between right and left-handed operation on the fly, allowing users to choose the hand that is most comfortable — and switch hands in seconds.

Wide Field of View

Workers can easily read the large barcodes often found in warehouses, as well as labels that contain multiple barcodes.
