OEM Scan Engine

Quantum® IS3480 Omnidirectional Laser Scan Engine  
Omnidirectional Laser Scan Engine

Honeywell’s IS3480 is a compact, omnidirectional bar code scanner ideal for integration with Original Equipment
Manufacturer (OEM) devices.

IS3480 is a combination omnidirectional and single-line laser bar code scanner. The  omnidirectional  scan  pattern 
offers  outstanding  scan performance on all standard 1D bar code symbologies, including GS1 DataBar™. The 
button-activated  single-line  mode  aids  in  scanning items that contain multiple bar codes or when selecting
bar codes frommenu-style price sheets. In addition, scan lines can be turned on or off individually, allowing complete
customization of the scan pattern.

IS3480 is designed for integration with a variety of devices including self-service  kiosks,  price  lookup  systems,
  ATMs,  access  control, shopping  assistant  devices,  or  a  host  of  other  Original  Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)
devices. The scanner’s main cable connector is located at the top of the unit to facilitate mounting and the auxiliary
connector gives users access to several of the I/O signals, providing the flexibility for external hookup of beepers,
buttons, and LEDs.

The unique shape of IS3480 allows the unit to be mounted in slim profile systems.  In addition, IS3480 features a
sweet-spot mode that audibly indicates the best mounting location for optimum scanning in a fixed application. 
Most  importantly,  the  IS3480  is  equipped  with  powerful and cost saving features such as easy programming,
user replaceable cables and upgradeable software that protects your investment.

* Automatic scanning operation:
  Simply present a bar code and the unit scans in a single pass
* Programmable depth of field:  Customize the scan field for small POS areas eliminating inadvertent scans
* Single-line mode:  Facilitates scanning of items with multiple bar codes, including menus
* Sweet spot mode:  Provides the user feedback on how well the unit is scanning a bar code in the scan zone
* Flash ROM:  Using the MetroSet2® utility, the scanner’s firmware can be upgraded using a personal computer
