Code Reader Custom Configuration Flexibility
by Tim Jackson, Application Engineer

Code’s barcode readers are some of the most configurable high-performance barcode readers on the market. They accept commands embedded in barcodes as well as complex programming written in JavaScript. There are hundreds of settings and commands that can be used to change the behavior of the reader to meet your unique needs. This flexible programming, along with fast processing and on-board memory, makes Code barcode readers a winning combination.

Code barcode readers can be configured quickly to perform many basic tasks by simply scanning barcodes provided in the reader’s Quick Start Guide or User Manual. The advantage of using barcodes supplied by Code Corporation is that configurations can be changed on-site and at-will. Each barcode sends one or more commands to the reader and by reading multiple barcodes, a more complex configuration can be achieved. For more advanced configurations, a larger set of commands are provided in the reader’s Programming Code Matrix document (an appendix to your reader’s user manual). This document contains nearly 300 of the most common command combinations that control everything from communications to prefixes and suffixes.

Code Corporation does not expect our end users to become experts in configuring barcode readers. Code has a team of consultants, called Application Engineers that are as close as a phone call or email away. Application Engineers are available to create custom configurations based on your business rules, distilled down to a few barcodes that can be scanned to configure your reader to meet your exact needs.

The most powerful and flexible feature of a Code barcode reader is their ability to run computer programming written in a subset of JavaScript. These programs can access every register setting on the reader, do very complex data analysis and manipulation, implement complex business rules, and, in fact, allow readers to contain many different configurations that can be initiated via the screen on the CR3500 units or by reading bar codes with the CR1000, CR2500 or CR1200 units.

By and large, JavaScript programming is done by the Application Engineering team by working closely with you to define the kinds of barcodes to be read, the application you want the reader to interface with, and the output needed to achieve success.
