CCD Linear, Small form factor, 300 sps


The MDC-100 is a small CCD scanner that works at the rate of 300 scans per second. Furthermore, this engine contains a decoder and has a low power consumption for longer battery life. If you are looking for a fast, small, and decoded engine, keep on reading.

Integrated decoder

The MDC-100 is a CCD scanner with a compact design and it scans at a rate of 300 scans per second. Moreover, the scanner has an integrated decoder relieving customers from the need to integrate one themselves. To elaborate, this decoder communicates through a 12 pin FFC connector, which is suitable for both RS-232C and USB. Additionally, this scanner has a low power usage with a max current consumption of 120mA, ensuring longer usage when operating with a battery or longer energy costs when wired.

Development board

For the testing and evaluating of this scan engine we have a development board, the MEK-3100. This separately sold development kit enables you to evaluate the scan engine without the need to develop any electronics or cables. Take a look at the kit here.

The MDC-100 has some interesting features, to summarize a few:

  • CCD scan engine
  • 300 scans per second
  • Small form
  • Low energy usage

Existing customers use the MDC-100 to integrate a scanning module in their OEM or ODM project, thus, expanding the features and capabilities of this project. Due to the compact form and the low power consumption this engine is in high demand. A couple of markets where this engine shines in its performance are healthcare, hospitality, ticketing and logistical processes. For example, this engine is often used in OEM solutions for kiosks.
