You get advanced technology that delivers the unmatched scanning performance that has made Zebra the world’s leader in barcode capture. And with a choice of aimer type, illumination color, interface and decoder, you get all the options you need to simplify and reduce the cost of creating the perfect device for your market, users and applications. Put the best “of all worlds in your product designs with the miniature scan engines that deliver it all — the Zebra SE4720/SE4770.


Get the Ultimate in Scanning Performance

Global shutter technology

The global shutter captures the entire image simultaneously, enabling fast capture of the barcode image.

High quality lens

The superior lens ensures the quality of the image from corner to corner.

Megapixel sensor

Provides the high resolution required to capture the clearest image.

PRZM Intelligent Imaging

Only from Zebra, PRZM’s software decode algorithms deliver superior performance on poor quality and challenging barcodes, for first-time, every-time scanning.

Maximum motion tolerance

High first-pass read rates allow workers to quickly capture barcodes, whether the scanner or the barcode are in motion.

Wider field of view

Capture large barcodes and multiple barcodes quickly and easily with a larger ‘sweet spot’ — no need for users to spend time repositioning the device to capture the barcode.

Extraordinary working range

Capture barcodes farther than 24 in./60 cm away, allowing you to meet the needs of more types of users and applications.

Get the Ultimate in Flexibility

Fits-anywhere design

At just a third of an inch high (8.1 mm) and a fifth of an ounce (6 grams), this tiny-but-mighty scan engine is easy to integrate into the smallest of spaces — ideal for the new generation of thin mobile devices and sleds, as well as mobile computers, handheld scanners, self-service kiosks, medical and diagnostic instruments and lottery terminals.

Empower your slimmest designs with powerful next-generation imaging.

Choose your aimer type: LED or laser

The market for your products typically defines the type of aimer you need. That’s why this miniature family of scan engines offers LED and laser aimers. The SE4720 offers LED aimers that are ideal in markets that prefer not to use lasers, such as healthcare. The SE4770 offers laser aimers, ideal for scanning at longer ranges or in bright sunlight, ensuring that the aimer is visible at longer ranges, indoors and outside.

Choose your illumination and aimer color

The illumination and aimer color combination that will deliver the best scanning performance for your customers is dependent upon the types and colors of the barcodes that will be scanned. The SE4720 LED aimers are available in white illumination with a green aimer spot, or red illumination with a red aiming spot. And the laser aimers in the SE4770 are available in either white or red illumination, both with a sharp red laser cross hair.

Choose your interface

Both scan engines support the popular MIPI interface as well as the more traditional parallel interface. You get the freedom to utilize the processor best suited for your application without sacrificing cost, integration time, or precious space for incremental hardware components. The result? Faster time to market, reduced development costs, more competitive pricing and higher margins.

Choose the right decode option

When you choose the SE4720/SE4770, you also have the flexibility to choose the decoder strategy that best fits your product designs — software or hardware. Our software decode option allows you to further reduce space and system power requirements — ideal in the smallest of designs. Hardware options include three high-performance dual-core decoders that connect to your host.

Beyond the barcode to richly featured document capture

The advanced focusing, optical and illumination systems enable the SE4720/SE4770 to also capture photos for proof of delivery and damage claims, as well as documents. With Zebra’s integrated Intelligent Document Capture technology, it’s easy to capture documents that are highly legible— and searchable. With the single press of a button, this intelligent software determines when conditions are ideal to capture the highest quality image, taking the guesswork away from users. Once the image is captured, it is automatically analyzed and up to eight functions are performed as needed. In a fraction of a second, without any user intervention, shadows and noise are removed, and images are de-skewed, rotated, brightened, sharpened and cropped.

Get the Ultimate in Reliability

Proven technology from the proven world leader in scanning technology

When you choose the SE4720/SE4770, you get the peace of mind that comes from choosing superior, well-tested technology. Every day, all around the world, our OEM products power over tens of millions of devices in thousands of applications in practically every industry. In addition to fast and easy integration into your products, Zebra’s highly reliable, award-winning data capture technology delivers superior performance, enabling the rapid, cost-effective design of more profitable high-quality data capture solutions.
