Worried about infection control? The CR2700 is your answer! With the introduction of wireless (inductive) charging, Code has eliminated any exposed metal. Combined with seamless construction, the IP65 rating, and top-of-the-line CodeShield® plastics, the CR2700 can be quickly and completely wiped down with even the harshest chemicals.

The CR2700 introduces Bluetooth® 5 to healthcare scanning—increasing data transmission security. By implementing a low energy radio, Code has extended the battery life to minimize downtime during shifts. A built-in gauge tells users when it's time to change the battery, which can quickly be swapped for a fresh one, getting nurses right back to caring for patients. The CR2700 can also be paired with a Bluetooth Dongle—providing easy setup and reliable communication with a host PC while allowing the scanner to be charged elsewhere.
