Small 1D Engine for Maximum Design, Flexibility and Rapid Integration Into a Wide Range of Products

Since this small low-profile 1D scan engine is less than 0.3 inches (7.7 mm) thick, it easily fits in the smallest spaces in your product designs.The SE655 is ideal for: PDAs for managers who need to scan a bar code to check the price on an item or shelf tag; time clocks that can automatically create accurate time cards; identity management applications to control access at entry gates; lottery kiosks; and a wide range of medical equipment, such as blood analyzers that can read bar codes on test tubes to accurately verify patient identity.

Proven Technology You Can Count on

When you choose the SE655, you get the peace of mind that comes from choosing superior, well-tested technology. Every day, all around the world, our scan engines are hard at work scanning millions of bar codes in thousands of applications across many industries. With the SE655 you enjoy best in class data capture technology, ease of integration, high reliability and superior performance. The result is the rapid yet cost-effective development of high-quality mobile and fixed devices that meet the needs of your customers—and better your margins.
