Laser, Small form factor, 100 sps


The MDL-2001 is a very reliable laser scanner that runs at 100 scans per second. It is a small scanner with compact dimensions making it a scan engine that is easy to integrate. It has an integrated decoder onboard that can directly decode the scan results.

Powerful engine

The MDL-2001 is a powerful, bi-directional laser scanner that provides clear visual feedback of the laser line. The scanning speed is 100 scans per second and it can scan all 1D barcodes. The engine is small and the design is a cubical shape that measures 20.4 x 11.2 x 18.0 mm, with such a compact shape you can easily integrate this engine in your product. The communication goes through a 12 pin FFC connector.

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 engine is easily integrated into your next product and this engine is proven as a reliable laser engine made by Opticon. If you would like to read all the specs and details, please look in the leaflet in the download section.
