Project Description

CR2600 Product Overview

CR2600-code-barcode-readersThe Code Reader™ 2600 (CR2600) is an ultra-fast, durable Bluetooth® barcode reader that features an aggressive scan engine to decode all 1D, 2D and Postal barcode symbologies. Its patented dual field optics make transitioning from decoding wide to very small barcodes seamless. While patented glare-reduction technology means reading barcodes on shiny surfaces is no longer a challenge. Also available in an XHD version for manufacturing workflows.

The CR2600 is available in both palm and handled configurations, and features a durable quick-release, rechargeable, battery cartridge. For a truly mobile solution, battery cartridges accurately measure charge level and display battery life using a 4 LED fuel gauge indicator.

By scanning the QuickConnect Code™ located on the charging station, the CR2600 quickly establishes a wireless connection between the reader and the host device – enabling users to transmit barcoded data into any application. For added versatility, the CR2600 can be paired to other Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices.

Now with CodeShield™, Level 3 plastics, and an IP65 rating, the CR2600 tolerates more cleaners and disinfectants than any other healthcare barcode reader on the market. With CodeShield™, this pocket-sized, wireless reader can freely move in and out of patient rooms without affecting infection control protocols.

How do our customers use the CR2600?

You will find the CR2600 used mainly in healthcare and manufacturing. This is a hit with nurses! Small enough to fit in scrub pockets, nurses can carry the CR2600 from room to room – perfect for medication administration. Also thrives in manufacturing workflows like automotive, warehouse, and electronic assembly.
