Description

The N3680 barcode scan engine is a fully decoded 2D imager that utilizes Honeywell decoding and imaging technology in our most compact design. The N3680 2D imager represents a balance between size, performance and ease of integration, providing an enhanced user experience.

The N3680 2D imager supports a wide variety of symbologies, including 1D, 2D and PDF417 barcodes. It also includes advanced features that support reading poorly-printed barcodes, and can read barcodes directly from smartphone screens. These attributes make the N3680 2D imager useful for reading mobile coupons and loyalty cards, mobile ticketing, paperless boarding passes and barcode payment systems for mobile wallet applications.

Integration is easier, with the N3680 2D imager available in either TTL serial or USB versions, both with an industry-standard, 12-pin ZIF connector. To provide an easier upgrade path for customers desiring a 1D laser with a 2D imaging option, the N3680 2D imager is the same size as the Honeywell N4315 1D laser engine, and features the same mounting holes and electrical pin-out. This provides enhanced flexibility to more quickly provide barcode reading solutions with a lower design cost, in more compact designs.

Compact and ready to power the next generation of intelligent data collection devices, the N3680 2D imager weighs 3,6 g [0.1 oz], simplifying design into a wide range of small devices. Due to its small form factor and fully integrated design, there is no need for an extra decoder board, and no need for extra host decoder programming. In fact, the N3680 2D imager does not require a separate CPU or OS for integration into your device.
