An engine like the MDL-1500 is used in industries that need a reliable scan engine for scanning 1D barcodes with high frequency. Due to the ability to communicate the data in both USB and RS-232 this engine is more compatible with your system. A few example industries where this engine thrives are: healthcare, logistics, ticketing and hospitality.

How we describe the MDL-1500

The MDL-1500 is a barcode laser scan engine with a design so flat that it is easily fitted in any OEM or ODM project. Additionally, it scans at a high rate of a 100 scans per second and can read all 1D barcodes. The 12 pin FFC connector makes it possible for the engine to communicate the scanned date in either RS-232 or USB (-HID or -COM). Furthermore, the engine measures a mere 8 mm in height, 28 mm in width ,14 mm in depth and a weight of only 3.9g it is clear that the physical aspects are astonishing. While powering this engine with a battery it ensures a long period of use due to the low energy consumption. It is only 3V.

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.
