MaxiScan 2100

The Intermec MaxiScan 2100 is a compact and rugged fixed bar code scanner that combines accurate scanning with impressive speed. The MaxiScan 2100 also offers the choice of a linear image (CCD) or laser scan engine to meet the needs of your specific operation.


  • Compact, durable case

  • Laser scan (2100ST) or linear image (2100SR) engines

  • Sharp, brightly illuminated scan line

  • Universal interface output for various applications

  • Immediate configuration using EasySet setup

Rugged, compact design
The Intermec 2100 offers simple and reliable scanning in a tough, sealed case. It installs just about anywhere due to its compact size and versatile mounting options, which makes it the perfect choice for point of sales and healthcare applications.

Performance to suit your needs
2100 SR: (CCD linear image) Patented technology gives the 2100SR the power to accommodate applications using a depth of field up to 35cm (14in). You'll be assured instant reading with the fast scan capability of 800 scans per second.

2100ST: (Laser) The 2100ST scan engine is great for applications requiring an extended depth of field (to 35cm/14") and a scan rate of 200 scans per second.

Easy integration
The universal interface system of the 2100 allows you to connect to PCs, cash registers or other terminals your business requires by simply changing the cable and software setup with the familiar Windows EasySet program.
