1555 Reader/Interrogator

The Intermec SabreTM 1555 is an extremely powerful data collection device capable of scanning bar codes as well as reading/programming radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and labels.

  • Dual technology performance
  • Application flexibility
  • Smart battery pack option
  • Durable design
  • Fast setup/configuration

The Sabre 1555 combines a laser scan engine for reliable bar code scanning up to 5m (7ft) with the capacity to read/program RFID tags up to a 2m (6ft) range. Using Intellitag® technology and support for ANS NCITS 256-1999 (the only approved standard for RFID item management), the Sabre 1555 packs superior power to read/program single or multiple tags and labels.

A 40-character display, audio feedback and single mode key make operation easy and reduce training time.

The Sabre 1555 offers a lithium ion battery option to operate with a variety of portable data terminals (PDTs) without consuming PDT battery power. Each lithium ion battery pack comes with its own integrated charger.

The 1555 is ergonomically designed and weighs less than 600g (16oz). Your workers will appreciate the comfortable operation for an entire shift's work and your business will benefit from its rugged performance, even in harsh environments.

EasySetTM configuration software allows product setup through simple scanning of a series of bar codes. In a matter of minutes, your users can be up and running.
