Honeywell - N3680 2D Module
Bar Code Reader - OEM Engine

The N3680 barcode scan engine is a revolutionary, fully decoded, compact 2D engine from Honeywell. It inherits the legendary Adaptus 6.0 decoding performance in our most compact design. The N3680 represents a fine balance between size, performance, and ease of integration ensuring an excellent end user experience.

Not only does the N3680 series support a wide variety of symbologies including 1D, 2D and PDF417 barcodes it also includes advanced features that support reading poorly printed bar codes and can even read barcodes directly from smartphone screens. This makes the N3680 the perfect choice for reading mobile coupons, loyalty cards, mobile ticketing, paperless boarding passes and mobile wallet application barcodes.

Integration is simplifed, with the N3680 available in either TTL serial or USB versions, both with an industry standard 12-pin ZIF connector. To provide an easy upgrade path for formerly 1D laser applications with a 2D imaging option, the N3680 is the same size as the N4315 engine, and even features the same mounting holes and electrical pin-out. This gives you the greatest flexibility to quickly provide barcode reading solutions with the lowest design cost, in the most compact designs.

Super-compact and ready to power the next generation of intelligent data collection devices, the N3680 weighs in at just 3.6 grams and fits easily into a wide range of small devices.>/p>
