6th Generation UIMG Technology.
The EM20-80 is armed with Newland’s latest generation scanning technology. Sporting a new decoding algorithm on its CPU processor, the engine delivers excellence no matter what code it’s facing. Additionally, it allows the firmware to be adapted to your specific environment and application.

Optimized for On-Screen Codes.
The EM20-80 is ready for any smartphone or tablet presented to it. The wide scan angle and optimization for near-distance scanning both match the intuitive way end-users present their device to a scanner. This keeps lines moving and operations running smoothly.

Resistance to High Vibrations.
The sturdy PCB construction and vibration-proof connectors make the EM20-80 highly resistant against vibrations. This feature has particularly proven its value for ticket validation in buses and trains.

Direct Connection to PC.
The EM20-80 is set up with an additional 4-pin connector on its decoder board. This way, you can directly connect the engine to your computer via a universal USB interface.

EasySet Configuration.
The EM20-80 is compatible with our master configuration software EasySet. Built for Windows OS, this software is a useful tool to integrators for building and testing configurations, cloning and deploying configurations, and updating scanner firmware.
