Item description

Designed as an economical entry point to the electronic key machine market, the Silca Unocode 199 features an optical reader for fully electronic duplication. The machine is also available with an optional electromechanical feeder, making future expansion possible.

As the name suggests the UC199 sits below the UC299 and UC399 in the Unocode family, offering an excellent balance of features and benefits for this new lower price point. The UC199 is an ideal starting position for smaller locksmiths, automotive locksmiths needing the optical reader, and for front of shop operations where a code cutting (with PC) and duplicating function in the one machine are desired.
