Worried about infection control in the time of COVID-19? The CR2700 is your answer! With the introduction of wireless (inductive) charging, we have eliminated any exposed metal thereby making the device even more durable to the cleaners required infectious-disease control standards. Combined with seamless construction, an 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 barcode scanning—increasing data transmission security. By implementing a Bluetooth® 5 low energy radio, Code has extended the battery life to minimize downtime during work 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 employees right back to business as usual. 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.

The CR2700 itself, and other essential accessories are available in both light or dark gray respectively. The Light Grey model is built using CodeShield® Level 3 Plastics, able to withstand the widest range of disinfectants on the market. Alternatively, the Dark Grey model is built using CodeShield® Level 2 Plastics. 

All purchases are done through one of our many sales partner companies. Code is happy to help consult with you to determine the best partner for your specific needs, project detail and industry.
