CCD Linear, small form factor, 300 sps


The MDC-200 is a flat CCD scanner that is also equipped with an integrated decoder. This scan engine scans at a fast rate of 300 scans per second. Due to this high scanning rate and its compact design, this scan engine is a popular choice for customers that look to integrate a scan engine in their OEM or ODM project.

Excellent choice

Opticon’s CCD scanners scan nearly all existing 1D barcodes. This engine integrates a CCD scanner with a decoder that communicates the scanned results through a 12 pin FFC connector, suitable for both RS-232C and USB. The engine has a maximum current consumption of 120mA, making this a good choice when a battery powers the engine for a long lasting operating time.  The engine has a compact design with dimensions measuring (WxHxD): 22.8 x 7.5 x 15 mm and with 2.6 grams it is also lightweight.

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.
