The Opticon MDC-210 is a linear CCD bar code scan engine with a very small rectangular form factor and a very thin height profile and has a special 70-degree wide-angle lens. This laser scan engine is ideal for space-constrained portable devices that requires a low cost 1D scanning solution. Great for product such as: smartphones, tablets, sleds, medical devices, diagnostic equipment or kiosks. the small size makes it easy to mount. The MDC-210 scan engine features a 1x1500 pixel imager that scans bidirectionally at a rate of 200 scans/second.

NOTE: This is a non-standard product and may be subject to a minimum quantity order.

The MDC-210 has the same specifications as the MDC-200, except its scan angle is wider so it may see a wider 1D barcode at a closer range than the MDC-200.

How To

Restore Default Settings

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.


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.


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.

MDC-200 Specification Manual This document provides detailed specifications for the MDC200. The only difference with the MDC-210 would be the scan angle is 70 degrees instead of 50 and the depth of field chart would be slightly different. We will update this as soon as we receive the specification document for the MDC-210. Download
DataSheet Technical details at a glance. (Same situation as the comment above. This is for the MDC-200. We will update as soon as we receive the updated datasheet for the MDC-210). Download
Universal Menu Book The Universal Menu Book is a document containing instructions and configuration options for the majority of Opticon's products. Support of the commands in this manual is product specific. A must read for System Integrators.
