MT40/MT40W High Speed Scan Engine

The MT40/MT40W barcode scan engine is a linear scan engine delivering optimal and high-speed scanning performance from a compact form factor. It comes in two versions: the MT40 long range version, which can scan barcode up to 460mm away, and the MT40W wide angle high density version, which supports 65-degree wide angle data capture with 3-Mil high density scanning capability. The scan engine blends compact size, powerful scanning as well as versatility for space-constrained OEM applications of both portable and fixed devices.

Outstanding Performance from Near to Far

The MT40 long range scan engine delivers great performance on ordinary barcode scanning. With scanning distance reaching up to 460mm away and maximum scanning width of 200mm, the MT40 allows you to create portable devices that improve efficiency in logistics and warehouse applications where barcodes are likely to be scanned from a long distance.
 

The MT40W wide angle scan engine provides 65-degree scanning angle, the widest in the industry and 3-Mil high density scanning capability, enabling you to scan the widest as well as the densest barcodes from the nearest distance possible. This feature makes MT40W the best choice for fixed devices such as ticketing machines and lottery kiosks.
 

Flexible Electric Integration

Designed to operate with a wide range of input voltage from 3.3V to 5V, the MT40/MT40W provides flexible electric integration by minimizing the engineering change of your existing system design. It can also be programmed to automatically reduce its power consumption to only 1 micro amp when it is not in use, preserving the host device’s power.

Superb Reliability

The MT40/MT40W barcode scan engine has a longer product lifetime than any Laser scan engine on the market because it is designed with no moving parts or Laser diode, providing consistent scanning performance over a large temperature range from -10°C to 60°C, with ability to withstand exposure to humidity up to 95%RH, and 1.5-meter direct drop onto concrete. What’s more, the MT40/MT40W fully complies with the latest Photo-biological Safety Standard IEC 62471 and provides a safer aiming beam, making it a better choice in medical devices.

Ambient Light Immunity

The MT40/MT40W barcode scan engine delivers consistent scanning performance in nearly any lighting condition, from total darkness (0 lux) to direct sunlight (70,000 lux), extending the working range for barcode scanning tasks which, as a result, helps you create products that can be used in any lighting condition, for both indoors and outdoors applications.

Bi-directional Serial Link

The MT40/MT40W barcode scan engine supports 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 the bi-directional serial operation quickly, we provide the Windows-based BEO® configuration utility as a user-friendly platform where testing with the scan engine can be done in a much easier way.
 

Flash-Upgradeable

The flash memory of MT40/MT40W barcode scan engine is flash-upgradeable, which helps future-proof your investment and serves as a provision for additional future requirements or performance enhancement. This extends your products’ lifecycle and eliminates the cost incurred by complete system upgrade.

Development Kit

MB100 Demo Kit (P/N: 11A0-9801A20) provides the software and hardware tools required for the testing of MT40/MT40W barcode scan engine 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 to be adopted as an interface board connecting to the host device.
