Code Corporation Introduces Aggressive Compact Scan Engine

Code Corporation Launches Scan Engine for OEM Applications

Salt Lake City, UT - May 17, 2010 - Code Corporation announces the release of a new barcode reader, the Code Reader 8000 (CR8000). Designed for embedded applications, the CR8000 features a world-class imaging and decoding platform that meets demanding space requirements without compromising on barcode reading performance.

The CR8000 continues Code’s legacy of dual optical fields – while most barcode readers have a single field that is enhanced for a specific application, the CR8000 has two fields,a high density field for reading the smallest of barcodes, and a wide angle field for reading oversized bar codes, giving you two scanners in one miniaturized reader.In addition, Code has designed the optics to allow for custom focal lengths during the manufacturing process.

Measuring less than 3.6 cubic-centimeters, the optical engine of the CR8000 is compact and versatile enough to be embedded into a variety of machinery and configured to any application requiring either 1D or 2D barcode reading.Furthermore, the CR8000 includes connectivity to control additional illumination blocks for more demanding applications such as medical, or to take advantage of Code’s patented glared reducing technology.

"Our engineers have raised the bar in scan engines with the CR8000 and we are excited to bring this product to market”, said George Powell, president and CEO of Code Corporation. "The CR8000 has the fastest read performance in embedded compact barcode readers on the market; its performance is simply unmatched”.

The size of the CR8000 and aggressive decoding platform makes it ideal for use in medical devices, ATMs, price-lookup, lottery, age verification, direct parts mark, and kiosk applications.

Like other Code Corporation barcode readers, the CR8000 delivers fast and accurate barcode reading performance, while offering features not found in other readers.Code’s glare reduction technology, bright LED aiming mechanism, and JavaScript platform make Code Corporation readers ideal for quick and easy integration into work flows and processes.
