Motorola MT2000 Series Mobile Terminal Review


The Motorola MT2000 is the perfect tool for employees who need to do more than just scan, such as viewing and keying in data. Combining “the simplicity of a scanner with the intelligence of a mobile computer,” the Motorola MT2000 can decode both 1D and 2D bar codes, and it offers multiple connectivity options, providing the versatility required to meet a range of potential applications. Packaged in a rugged, yet ergonomic design, the MT2000 is useful for warehouse environments, education, government and healthcare, and asset management applications.

Applications and Typical Uses
The Motorola MT2000’s durable and rugged construction enables it to stand up to more than the typical office environment, although it’s not quite durable enough for use in harsh outdoor conditions. Still, its ergonomic design makes it useful for applications in which scanning frequency is high, such as warehousing and asset management. The MT2000 also finds use in government applications and healthcare settings, as well as education applications. The ability to view and key in data makes this handheld scanner particularly useful for the warehouse setting, enabling workers to key in new product data directly from the floor or manually update inventory counts to account for waste or damaged products.
Scanning Capabilities
The Motorola MT2000 can decode both 1D and 2D bar codes, using omnidirectional image scanning and image capture technology. But the MT2000 takes it a step further with the ability to capture signatures, photos and videos – lending to a number of additional potential uses outside the typical handheld barcode scanner. It can capture damaged or poor-quality 1D bar codes, ranging from 1 in/2.54 cm to as far as 192 in/486.68 cm, with its superior laser scanning technology. The omnidirectional 1D and 2D scanning capability eliminates the need to line up bar codes precisely for a successful scan. You can even deactivate EAS tags with the Motorola MT2000.
Operating Systems and Software
The Motorola MT2000 uses the Microsoft .NET development environment, enabling the easy development of new applications, but most importantly, the ability to port existing applications with ease. A ready-to-use inventory application comes pre-loaded on your Motorola MT2000, but you can easily port batch and real-time applications to the MT2000 using the pre-loaded MCL client. Whether you choose to use the internal inventory application or port a preferred, third-party software application, integration is simple with the Motorola MT2000.
A handheld barcode scanner that’s built to withstand harsh conditions is one thing, but if your hands and wrists become easily fatigued, that exceptional durability won’t offer much benefit. The Motorola MT2000 offers an ergonomic design aiming to reduce fatigue and support all-day scanning without negative side effects. The scanner itself is pretty durable, too. Not only can it withstand being dropped on the hard concrete floor of a warehouse, but it also withstands exposure to dusty environments, exposure to liquids and wide temperature ranges.
Additional Features and Functionality
A high-resolution high contrast color QVGA display makes it easy to read the display in any lighting – including both sunny outdoor conditions and dim indoor warehouse lighting. A rugged, durable package with an ergonomic design that supports all-day scanning without leading to pain or fatigue, coupled with a high-capacity, smart battery that will last an entire shift, the Motorola MT2000 truly supports persistent use.
