Fixed Scanners - MaxiScan 3100


  • Compact, rugged, sealed, fixed industrial scanners
  • High performance linear image (CCD) or laser model variants
  • Includes decoder, synchronization and serial interface
  • Easy and fast to setup using EasySet software to print and scan setup codes or download to flash
  • Direct, multi-head or network connection options
  • Applications include conveyor, integrated and other fixed applications in manufacturing, logistics and healthcare

The MaxiScan 3100 is a range of rugged, compact, fixed industrial bar code scanners that are easy to select, install and configure. The M3100 offers a choice of Intermecs linear image (CCD) or laser scanning technologies:

  • M3100 SR (CCD linear image) scan engine for close reading applications (to 10cm/4")
  • M3100 ST (Laser) scan engine for applications requiring a longer depth of field (to 35cm/14.")
  • M3100 ML (Laser) multi-line scan engine for applications requiring a larger scanning area.

The SR engine features new patented technology that provides a fast scan rate of up to 800 scans per second to ensure instant reading.
The ST and ML engines provide an extended depth of field and also a fast scan rate of 200 scans per second.

All scan engine options offer simple and reliable scanning in a tough, sealed case (IP65/Nema 12). The compact size and mounting options make installation easy whether in a horizontal or vertical plane.

The serial interface provides compatibility with the MaxiScan 3300 fixed position scanners, MCS connection system and MaxiScan 3010 RS 485 network concentrator (for network or multi-head configurations).

The MaxiScan 3100 is part of the MaxiScan fixed scanner range (includes M3300) and, in common with most Intermec scanners, the M3100 is supplied with EasySet setup software for the fastest on-line or off-line configuration.
