With its compact dimensions and integrated decoder, the N3680 engine makes it easy to incorporate high performance scanning into your designs. No separate decoder board required. It’s an excellent fit for virtually any kind of device across all market segments – especially retail, healthcare, point-of-sale, kiosks and ATMs, wearables and the IoT.
Eliminates the need for a separate decoder board and extra programming and integration work. The N3680 engine can even work without an OS and host CPU.
Easy to Integrate
Available in either TTL serial or USB, both with an industry standard 12-pin ZIF connector – easy to integrate into the most popular devices and applications.
Compact size and fully compatible with our N4315 1D laser engine for maximum design flexibility and design reuse.
Adaptus 6.0 Imaging Technology
Delivers high performance scanning and support for a wide set of 1D and 2D barcode symbologies, plus advanced imaging capabilities. Handles even hard-to-read barcodes.
Scans barcodes displayed on mobile phone screens – perfect for reading mobile coupons, loyalty cards, barcode payment systems for mobile wallet applications, and more.
The N3680 barcode scan engine is a revolutionary, fully decoded, compact 2D engine. 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 barcodes. It can even read barcodes directly from smartphone screens. This makes the N3680 scan engine a perfect choice for reading:
To provide an easy upgrade path for customers desiring a 1D laser with a 2D imaging option, the N3680 is the same size as our N4315, 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.
