While the high-density (HD) model is purpose-built to read DPM-like, ultra-high density and very small 2D barcodes that appear on items such as electronic components, jewelry tags, and medical equipment. Two different models are available to ensure maximum suitability for different scanning needs.

Comprehensive Connectivity

Broad compatibility

Broad compatibility

Through the HID or SPP profile, the PA680BT is compatible with a wide range of Android and iOS mobile devices as well as the most popular Bluetooth-enabled Windows, MAC, and Linux hosts.

Instant cordless migration

Instant cordless migration

No Bluetooth? Not a problem! Pair your PA680BT with Cino's Smart Cradle or Smart Dongle to instantly overcome the lack of Bluetooth connectivity. Without any additional costs, this instant “Plug-and-Play” cordless migration provides you with a working range of up to 100 meters.

Easy and Quick Pairing

Easy and Quick Pairing

To pair with Cino's cordless scanner is a breeze with the "scan to pair " or "tap to pair " functionalities. The user just needs to scan a "quick pair barcod "e generated by ConnectWizard™, or scan the "Quick Pair Barcode " on the Smart Cradle. Cino's companion scanners can also pair with any NFC-enabled devices with a quick tap. This one-step pairing process of Cino's cordless scanners streamlines user's workflows.

Comprehensive Functionalities

The advantages of the PA680BT go beyond the maximum mobility delivered via Bluetooth technology. Powered by more practical functions, the FuzzyScan PA680BT scanner enables you to complete various business tasks and maximize productivity.

Comprehensive Functionalities
Online Scanning

"On the Spot " Data Transmissions

"Online Scanning " usually sends data to hosts immediately after each scan. However, if the "Out-of-range-scanning " function is enabled, the scanner can continue to scan and retain up to 5,000 EAN barcodes when it loses the Bluetooth connection. Once back into radio range, it will automatically reconnect and transmit all stored data to the host.

Batch Scanning

Inventory Counts Made Simple

"Batch Scanning " is ideal and useful for simple stocktaking. When you use this function, all scanned data will be stored into the scanner's flash memory. Once data transmission is activated, all stored data will be sent to the host as a batch. The PA680BT scanner can store a maximum of 100,000 EAN barcodes per batch. Moreover, you can add a quantity value following each scanned data.

Validation Scanning

Verifying Data Uniformity Made Easy

"Validation Scanning " enables the PA680BT scanner to compare scanned data against the stored master data to verify data uniformity. This function is useful if data verification is needed during "shipping and receiving " or "order picking ".

Function Keys

Streamline Your Workflow via Function Keys

The PA680BT is equipped with one big trigger button and four function buttons. These four function keys allow users to switch between different functions easily; increasing efficiency and productivity.

Enhanced User Experiences

Designed with sharp aiming and multifaceted notification feedback via visual, audio, as well as tactile indications, the PA680BT delivers superior usability and a great user experience.

Enhanced User Experience

Visual Feedback

LED lights emit conspicuous, multi-color signals to help users clearly identify the current status at a quick glance.


Audio Feedback

The PF680BT imager uses audio indicators to indicate its various statuses. It features a loud beeper that allows you to adjust volume and tone.
