Ambient Light Immunity

MT83 Mini 2D Imager automatically adjusts its parameters for optimal scanning performance which provides the freedom to scan barcodes from under complete darkness to direct sunlight. As a result MT83 is ideal for both indoors and outdoors scanning applications which require more immunity for ambient light.
