About

The Opticon MDI2300 is a 2D CMOS imager barcode scan engine built around Opticon’s innovative auto-focus technology. This tiny yet powerful scan engine is ideal for mobile, medical and kiosk devices. The auto-focus technology enables the engine to quickly and efficiently scan 1D or 2D barcode images: the real-time adapting liquid lens self-adjusts for distance and angle. It even reads from LCD screens! This small form factor scan engine decodes images at a blazing 80 FPS. It's one of the fastest scan engines available. The MDI2300 is perfect for OEMs who want to differentiate their glucose meters, gaming and retail kiosks and more with fast, easy-to-use scanning capability.

Configure the Scanner

The output of this barcode reader can be modified in several different manners. Using several different tools. The following tools are available for you to use in configuring your scanner. Please submit a ticket above for assistance from Opticon's Technical Support Team.

Universal Menu Book

The Universal Menu Book (UMB) is a PDF document that enabled you to change the most commonly changed settings on Opticon's scanners. The UMB also contains information about what the various settings do when they are enabled. The UMB covers the following topics.

  • Interface Specific Settings
  • Code Opticons
    • Barcode Symbology Settings
    • Enabling/Disabling Symbologies
  • String Options
    • Prefixes / Suffixes
    • Preambles / Postambles
  • Read Options- Adjusting General Behaviors like:
    • Disable Trigger (Always On)
    • Single Read Mode / Multiple Read Mode
  • Indicator Opticons
    • Buzzer Settings
    • LED Settings

Opticonfigure

Opticonfigure serves primarily as a an online searchable Universal Menu Book (UMB), however it does have some notable differences. Opticonfigure is updated more frequently than the UMB. Opticonfigure also contains some menu options that were excluded from the UMB for the sake of brevity. Although more inclusive, Opticonfigure doesn't do as good of presenting information in an organized and comprehensible manner as the UMB does. Opticonfigure allows you to: Create and print custom configuration sheets. Create custom configuration sheets and save them as PDF files. Create custom configurations and export OCG files. Create DataWizard configuration sheets.

DataWizard

Data Wizard allows you to modify barcode data before transmission. Currently it is able to add or remove characters, adjust the length of the output data, and remove entire sections of the barcode prior to transmission. Commonly each configuration will be designed to match different sizes, symbologies, or characters in barcode data. So for example if a user wants to truncate a Code-39 barcode of a specific length, but add characters to a Code 128 barcode, you wold make two configurations.
