Honeywell introduces new Slim 2D Scan Engines to improve mobile device performance

Honeywell introduces new Slim 2D Scan Engines to improve mobile device performance

Honeywell has introduced two new 2D barcode scan engines to help improve the data capture performance of compact and lightweight mobile devices, such as handheld computers, tablets and wearable scanners.

The N670X and N360X series engines are some of the most compact in their class, freeing up room to integrate other technology while enhancing overall productivity. By enabling fast, accurate and efficient scanning, these new scan engines help workers better perform their tasks efficiently and comfortably.

“As distribution centers increasingly rely on mobile devices to maximize productivity, scan engine technology is helping empower global commerce. The new N670X Series provides mobile device manufacturers with the opportunity to optimize technology already in-play, and to improve overall device performance,” said Lu Wang, general manager at Honeywell's Sensing and Internet of Things business. “These new 2D imagers not only provide advanced options for scanning both traditional and colored barcodes with higher accuracy, but they also enhance existing technology, by freeing up space in devices for other components.”

Both scan engines simplify the reading of higher resolution codes, while the white LED illumination system enhances image capture results and readability of colored barcodes. Users will benefit from the engine’s more visible high definition LED green dot aimer, making usage more comfortable while increasing overall productivity - particularly in environments where barcodes are close to one another or otherwise difficult to read.

The imagers' wide operational temperature range allows expansion into more demanding applications and the lower power consumption increases overall battery life provided by a single charge.
