Scanning across the wide working range is easy, intuitive and rapid, regardless of environment. The durable engine design enables you to deliver products that perform reliably day in and day out, increasing productivity and reducing total cost of ownership. Regardless of whether you are designing handheld computers, medical instruments, diagnostic equipment, lottery terminals, robotics and more, these extremely small scan engines deliver next-generation performance with an ease of integration that enables rapid cost-effective product development — a true competitive advantage.

Durability for all day every day use

The Symbol SE950/SE955 offers superior reliability you can count on, regardless of whether you are incorporating the Symbol SE950/SE955 into mobile computers or laboratory analyzers. The patented Liquid Polymer Scan Technology is frictionless and will not wear out. Designed for durability, the elimination of fragile silicon mirrors combined with the die cast chassis enables the Symbol SE950/ SE955 to handle drop shocks up to 2000Gs. You enjoy maximum uptime – and a lower total cost of ownership.

Increased productivity

The highly advanced retro-collective optical design provides a superior working range, regardless of lighting or bar code symbology. Scanning speed is optimized to provide aggressive read times, and the programmable scan line is easily adjusted, providing the fl exibility to use a single scan engine for a wide variety of uses. The result is the rapid and accurate scanning needed to improve worker productivity.

Lower total cost of ownership (TCO)

The Symbol SE950/SE955 enables the development of products that offer superior manageability. Built-in system performance monitoring enables remote access to scan engine statistics. Management of your products is easier, less time consuming and less expensive — a competitive advantage for you and a lower TCO for your customers.

Rapid and flexible integration

The miniature Symbol SE950/SE955 is designed to easily integrate into the products you design today — and tomorrow. The industry standard form factor allows you to easily upgrade your current scan engine without the expense of changing your tooling processes, allowing you to offer the latest technology without the time and cost associated with changing your production line.
