MT30 Long Range Scan Engine (EOL)

Best Performance for All Applications

MT30 scan engine delivers user the best scanning performance from a minimal form factor. With the ability to scan all 1D barcodes from longer distance as well as 3 mil high-density barcodes, MT30 is ideal for scanner integration in both portable and fixed devices such as smart phone, tablet PC, industrial PDA, lottery kiosk, access gate and more.

Versatile Scanning Capability

MT30 provides a maximum reading distance up to 55cm in depth and a field of view of 20cm in width. With the ability to read 3 mil (0.075mm) barcodes, the MT30 scan engine is also optimal for applications using high-density barcodes on limited space which is commonly found in manufacturing, automotive, electronics, and telecom.

Easy and Flexible Operations

MT30 scan engine enhances design flexibility by offering various output interfaces with USB HID,USB VCP and UART and enabling the user to easily configure the reading modes and scanner settings according to preference. The flash memory of MT30 serves as a flexible and upgradeable provision for additional requirements or performance enhancement and extends the product's lifecycle as well.

More Ambient Light Immunity

MT30 automatically adjusts its parameters for optimal scanning performance which provides the freedom to scan barcodes from under complete darkness to direct sunlight. With configurable scan rate between auto-adaptive mode and fixed mode, MT30 scan engine is ideal for both high-speed scanning applications and smart devices which require more motion tolerance and ambient light immunity.

Bi-directional Communication

A set of commands is supported to enable the host device to configure all the functions of MT30 thereby fulfilling dynamic configurations demand. To help user grasp and understand the bi-directional communication more quickly, the Windows®-based BEO® configuration utility is provided as a user-friendly platform where testing MT30 scan engine can be done in a much easier way.

Multi I/O Board

Useful Demo Kit

MB100 Demo Kit (sold separately) provides the software and hardware tools required for testing MT30 scan engine before integrating it into the host device. The kit contains software utility, interface cables and MB100 Multi I/O board. Due to its small size, MB100 is also suitable for being installed inside the host system as an interface board connecting MT30 to the host device.
