Honeywell - CF3680 2D Customer Facing Module
Bar Code Reader - OEM Engine

Honeywell’s CF3680 2D Imager Module for Customer-Facing Designs provides a complete, self-contained 1D and 2D barcode scanning solution, whether decoding mobile phone screens or paper. Designed for easy integration, its all-in-one, easy-to-mount form factor simplifies integrationinto your fixed mount enclosure. Honeywell’s CF3680 2D Imager Module can help you expedite product design and reduce the total cost of your products.

Designed to be quickly and easily mounted, the CF3680 2D Imager Module comes out of the box with its decoded 2D optics, housing, exit window, USB interface board and mounting holes,minimizing adjustments and the need to purchase additional components when installing the device. Additionally, the exit window dimensions comply with EVA (European Vending Association) requirements, simplifying installation in the European region. The USB interface board allows the ability to use a standard USB cable (available locally), eliminating the installer’s need to purchase a custom cable to connect the barcode scanner to the kiosk for power and communication, which simplifies installation, and helps to reduce the total cost of ownership.

The exit window is constructed of scratch-resistant tempered glass, providing enhanced durability when compared with imager modules that are constructed of polycarbonate plastic.

The CF3680 2D Imager Module operates with white LED illumination which is deflected from the end-user’s direct line of sight via a mirror, eliminating a blinding light.

The CF3680 2D Imager Module offers contact or close-to-contact scanning operation so that the end-user can more easily and more effectively read any standard 1D or 2D barcode by simply approaching or touching the CF3680 2D Imager Module’s built-in exit window with their mobile phone screen, coupon, loyalty card or ticket.

Utilizing the latest Honeywell decoding technology, the CF3680 2D Imager Module is designed for use in global customer-facing OEM applications such as self-service kiosks, access control at stadiums, events, public transportation facilities, vending machines, gaming equipment and fast food self-ordering kiosks.
