CR1500 Product Overview

code-reader-cr1500The Code Reader™ 1500 (CR1500)

The Code Reader™ 1500 (CR1500) is a compact, rugged, tethered barcode reader that features a high-performance scan engine, patented dual-field optical platform and intuitive targeting that makes reading 1D, 2D and postal barcodes extremely fast and reliable. Built for either healthcare or industrial purposes, this reader is ready to thrive in either demanding setting.

The healthcare CR1500 (CR1500-HC) is built with CodeShield® Level 3 disinfectant-ready housing, is PVC-free and IP54 rated, protecting the performance of the CR1500 against harsh chemical cleaning agents, dust, and water ingress–even multiple drops to concrete.

The Code Reader™ 1500 Industrial (CR1500-IND) is built to overcome and exceed the real challenges that are present in this vertical like reading poor quality codes printed on varied surfaces, laser etched direct part marks (DPM)* during manufacturing processes, or barcodes as small as 2 mil.

No matter your system requirements, Code’s unique JavaScript platform provides unlimited customization options to meet your application needs. Powered by a proprietary microprocessor specifically designed for super fast image processing and a best-in-class decoder, the CR1500 is the compact yet durable high-performance 2D barcode reader of choice for all your challenging data collection applications.

How do our customers use the CR1500?

We see this reader used a lot at the point-of-care, in pharmacies, labs, manufacturing, logistics, quality control, supply chain management, tracking/tracing, and much more.
