SE3300 Scan Engine

Reduce product development cost and improve your margins

High performance cost-effective enterprise-class scanning. When your products need to capture 1D and 2D barcodes, the SE3300 scan engine delivers the same high-quality performance that drives Zebra’s continued leadership in the bar code scanning industry — all in a very affordable package. You get first-time every time scanning of even damaged and poorly printed bar codes; the ability to read bar codes that are printed on paper labels or displayed on the screen of a mobile phone or computer; and the rapid scanning speed that protects worker productivity and the customer experience. With the SE3300, you can create products that will make a difference for your customers — and their customers. Create kiosks and handheld mobile devices that can scan lottery tickets, coupons and loyalty cards displayed on mobile phones that improve customer service quality and self-checkout times. And help reduce errors and improve care quality with bar code-enabled medical equipment, such as insulin meters and blood carousels.

Barcode Scanning Made Easy For Workers and Customers

When workers or customers are scanning bar codes, the SE3300 makes it easy — no training is required. Users do not need a steady hand or to pause between scans. There is no need to align bar code and scanner. The bright LED dot makes it easy to aim. The result is easy first-time every-time capture of bar codes that are near and far.

Simple to Integrate

Numerous features make it easy to integrate the SE3300, from flexible mounting options and thorough documentation to a scan engine development board. With a multitude of software configuration options, you can easily optimize the performance of the SE3300 for your application — from scan timing to the ability to customize the brightness of the aiming pattern and illumination to fit different available light levels.

Decode Options Provide Maximum Integration Flexibility

Hardware and software decode options allow you to choose the decoder strategy that best fits your product designs. Our PL5500 hardware decoder family allows you to choose the form factor that best meets the needs of your product designs — a standalone circuit board that connects to your board or a microchip that is soldered to your main circuit board. Want it already integrated? Choose the SE3307, which comes with the decoder already embedded and ready to go. And if component costs, battery power and product margins are a concern, we offer a purely software decode option — no hardware required.
