N4680 Series Compact, Decoded 2D Scan Engine at a Glance

Your customers demand more from their scanning technology, from high-speed decoding to accurate reads on poorly printed or on-screen barcodes. Space is at a premium, and you want a scan engine ready to go – and grow – with expanding technology.

Our next-generation N4680 Series Compact, Decoded 2D Scan Engine is a one-piece design available in either TTL serial or USB versions, both with an industry-standard, 12-pin ZIF connector. It is the same mechanical size and features the same mounting holes and electrical pin-out to create a drop-in replacement for customers using its predecessor, the Honeywell N3680 Series. It provides legacy customers using the Gen5 5x00 and EAxx platforms an upgrade path to better performance in a more compact one-piece package.

Applications

The N4680 Series Compact, Decoded 2D Scan Engines are suited for a wide range of applications including:

What You Can Get with the N4680 Series Compact, Decoded 2D Scan Engine

IMPROVED MOTION TOLERANCE AND SNAPPINESS

The Honeywell N4680 Scan Engine is extremely motion tolerant to reach 6 m/s with its image capture at the rate of 120 fps maximum. Its powerful processor is 2.5 times faster than its N3680 predecessor.

NO NEED FOR DECODER BOARD OR HOST DECODER PROGRAMMING

Our fully integrated one-piece design scan engine means you don’t need an extra decoder board or host decoder programming. The N4680 Series does not require a separate CPU or OS for integration into a device.

WIDE TEMPERATURE RANGE

The N4680 Series Scan Engine performs in a wide operating temperature range, offering the application flexibility you need.

BEYOND THE BARCODE

Supports beyond barcode functionalities such as OCR and TotalFreedom™, which offer an open-system architecture for developing software plug-ins to implement value-added custom features such as Honeywell’s EasyDL™.

TECHNICAL AND INTEGRATION SUPPORT

These products are backed by our global savvy engineering team readily available to offer you support for your integration needs. Our team is prepared to guide you from the early stages of your project and accompany you along your design cycle.

FAQs

Why should I replace my existing N3680 Series Scan Engine with the N4680 Series Scan Engine?

The N4680 Series Compact, Decoded 2D Scan Engine is a drop-in replacement for the Honeywell N3680 Series scan engines with the same electrical and mechanical compatibility, but with a much higher motion tolerance that allows you to design the device into scanning-intensive applications.

What is the difference in speed between the N3680 Series Scan Engine and the N4680 Series Scan Engine?

The N4680 Series Compact, Decoded 2D Scan Engine is extremely motion tolerant with an image capture rate of 120 fps maximum vs 30fps in N3680 and a powerful processor that is 2.5 times faster than its N3680 predecessor.

How easy will it be to adapt my design to incorporate the N4680 Series Scan Engine?

The N4680 Series Scan Engine allows for simple integration either with standard serial TTL or USB interface, a compact form factor and no mechanical design issues in dealing with an extra cable and decoder board.

Can the N4680 Series Scan Engine read more than 2D symbology and on-screen barcodes?

Yes, the N4680 Series Scan Engine supports a wide variety of symbologies, including 1D, 2D and OCR. It also includes advanced features that support reading poorly-printed and on-screen barcodes.

Does the N4680 Series offer other functionalities beyond barcodes?

Yes, the N4680 Series Scan Engine supports beyond barcode functionalities such as OCR and TotalFreedom™ that offer an open-system architecture for developing software plug-ins to implement value-added custom features such as Honeywell’s EasyDL™.

Does Honeywell offer technical support for N4680 Series Scan Engine integration?
