CR1100 Product Overview

CR1000 Cr1000XHDThe Code Reader™ 1100 (CR1100) is a compact, cabled barcode reader that takes up limited workspace without compromising barcode reading performance. The patented dual-field optical platform of the CR1100 allows users to quickly scan both wide 1D barcodes and small dense 2D barcodes.

Users can operate the CR1100 handheld or in-stand presentation mode, and for increased efficiency users can select continuous scan or motion detection barcode reading. For fixed mount and OEM applications, the CR1100 features threaded brass inserts for easy installation.

Featuring high speed, omnidirectional barcode reading, extremely low power consumption, and manual or automatic triggering, the CR1100 is the ideal barcode reader for high use environments and excels in reading mobile coupons, ticketing and kiosk applications.

How do our customers use the CR1100?

You will find the CR1100 used in every industry simply because of the unique form factor and decoding power. We see this reader used often in healthcare, mobile coupon or ticketing, pharmacy, patrol vehicles, ATMs or kiosks, retail, and manufacturing.
