Zebra Manuals  
Note for use of the Zebra manuals:
The Zebra manuals describe how the programming of the scanners works. It is realized with the help of programmable codes or the Zebra 123Scan-Tool software.
The Ex compliant connection and handling is described in the BARTEC manuals.
If information overlaps with BARTEC manuals, then follow the information in the BARTEC manuals. The BARTEC manuals are of higher priority.

The BCS3600ex is equivalent to the following Zebra devices:
  - BCS3608ex => DS3608-HP hand-held scanner
  - BCS3678ex => DS3678-HP Bluetooth hand-held scanner
