When we choose a 2d QR barcode scanner for transportation like metro and bus station, usually we would consider:

– Ensure passengers can scan their barcode and go through quickly, especially when the flow of people is large, and avoid long queues.

For this:

  1. The scanning speed must be fast enough.
  2. when users show their bar codes from different angles, from different distances, make sure the bar code can be read every time.
  3. when the bar code is shown in the user’s phone screen, the size of the phone screens would be various, and we need to make sure the barcode scanner can read the barcode from all of those different sizes of mobile phone screens.

– Avoid failures as much as possible, reduce the cost of subsequent maintenance to the greatest extent, and facilitate maintenance.

Consider these challenges, RTscan recently launched a new product RT820. This RT820 is a fast 2d and QR barcode scanner, which is specially designed for the Metro, train, and bus ticketing system.

Presently, more and more access control system begins to combine bar code reading and NFC reading together, while traditionally, the Wiegand interface is widely used for the access control system. But at the same time, wireless or Ethernet data transfer becomes a trend and would be more and more popular for access control data transfer, because wireless or Ethernet is somehow more convenient, easy to install, supports remote control, and also it would be more cost-effective.

In order to meet these different requirements of our clients and different projects, RTscan recently launched a new product RTMU86.   

This RT-MU86 aims to meet this market requirement and the trend, it supports either Wiegand interface or Ethernet, read both bar codes and NFC.

It’s an ideal choice for current and future all kinds of access control projects.

This RT-MU86 is outstanding in:

1. Capable to read both bar code and NFC card

The RT-MU86 can read 1d code, 2d and QR bar code, and NFC card. This makes it a two-in-one terminal.

2. Support Ethernet or Wiegand (optional)

Except for the USB (USB-HID) interface and RS232 interface, the RT-MU86 also supports Wiegand and Ethernet communication. It’s a Wiegand barcode Scanner and also an ethernet barcode scanner.

3.Built-in relay

With a Built-in relay and 12V-24V wide voltage input, the RTMU86 can connect to the access control system directly, and no need for Voltage conversion equipment.

4.Holder design for easy installation

Just fix the holder in the wall via 2 screws, then fix the reader in the holder and lock it by the screw from the bottom, done.


Can be widely used for all kinds of access control applications.
