Maximum Performance at Any Distance

Built with a high-speed microprocessor, MT30 long range barcode scan engine is able to deliver outstanding scanning performance at 400 scans per second in a lightweight, small form factor. Thanks to its optic design, MT30 long range barcode scan engine’s maximum resolution is down to 3Mil (0.075mm) which means it can easily read literally all high density barcodes in many applications including light industry and medical equipment. On the other hand, MT30 shows great performance on scanning ordinary barcodes, whose reading distance can be up to 520mm away, as well as barcodes as wide as 200mm. This feature gives MT30 the advantage to improve efficiency in warehouse and inventory management.

Mobile-Friendly Scanning

MT30 long range barcode scan engine is based on the latest decode algorithm and optimized optic design, enabling it to scan virtually all 1D barcodes on any surface, either paper-based label or mobile phone display. With MT30 long range scan engine integrated into your device, you may expand your business into many new applications such as eCoupon, eTicket, Digital ID cards and mobile payments.

Outstanding Reliability

With no moving parts or Laser components, MT30 long range barcode scan engine is built to match the most demanding scanning requirements, delivering outstanding scanning performance over a large temperature range from -10°C to 60°C. It also complies with the toughest standards for exposure to 2000G shock and 10G vibration.

Ultra Low Power

With ultra-low current down to less than 300uA, MT30 long range barcode scan engine preserves host battery when the scan engine is not in use. The 3.3V low power operation is ideal for mobile applications where battery capacity is limited. As a result, MT30’s low power feature can help your products conserve battery power for full extended use.

Ambient Light Tolerance

From total darkness to 60,000 lux under sunlight, MT30 long range scan engine delivers consistent scanning performance in nearly any lighting condition - indoor and outdoor. This creates an extraordinary extended working range for barcode scanning tasks which provides great flexibility for your product design and a full variety of applications.

Bi-directional Serial Link

MT30 long range barcode scan engine offers a full set of commands enabling the host device to configure all the functions of the scan engine including software trigger and auto-off timeout, thereby fulfilling your dynamic configurations demand. To help you grasp and understand the bi-directional serial operation more quickly, we also provide the Windows-based BEO® configuration utility which is designed as a user-friendly platform where testing with the scan engine can be done in a much easier way.

Development Kit

MB100 Demo Kit (P/N: 11A0-9801A20) provides the software and hardware tools required for testing the MT30 long range barcode scan engine applications before integrating it into the host device. The kit contains software utility, interface cables and MB100 Multi I/O board (P/N: 2006-1007X00) which, due to its small size, is also suitable for being installed inside the host system, as an interface board connecting MT30 to the host device.
