13.0 - Communication Mode Switch
Charging Stations with an embedded modem feature a Communication Modem Switch. The
Communication Mode Switch allows the reader to transmit data through either the modem or
wired connection.
When the Communication Mode Switch is moved to the right, in the direction of the arrow, the
reader will communicate via the modem. The QuickConnect code located on the front of the
Charging Station must be scanned to establish a Bluetooth connection. Scanned data will then be
transmitted to the host device wirelessly.
If a wired connection is needed, move the Communication Mode Switch to the left. For USB
Downloader or Keyboard mode, the Batch Mode Enable code must be scanned (refer to Section
10). To transmit scanned data while in wired mode, the reader must be placed into the Charging
Station before data can be transmitted to the host device.

14.0 - Communicating in USB Downloader (HID) Mode
CR3600 firmware and configuration settings can be managed via USB Downloader (HID) Mode using Code’s CortexTools™.
If you are using the CR3600 with a CodeXML® M3 Modem, skip to step 2.
For the CR3600 to communicate in wired, USB Downloader (HID) Mode with a Charging Station with embedded CodeXML® modem:
1. Move the Communication Mode Switch to the left (opposite direction of the arrow) on the Charging Station (Figure 16).
2. Open CortexTools™.
3. Scan the USB Downloader (HID) Mode configuration barcode.
4. Dock the reader into the Charging Station.
5. Follow the instructions detailed in the CortexTools™ User Manual, available from
www.codecorp.com.

Note: to manually switch to USB Downloader Mode follow these steps.
1. Select ‘Options.’
2. Select ‘Settings.’
3. Select ‘Communication.’
4. Select ‘USB.’
5. Select ‘Downloader.’
6. Select ‘Save.’
15.0 - Communicating in Batch Mode via USB Communication Mode
Batch mode allows a user to store scanned data to the reader’s non-volatile memory. The user may transfer the data to a host device
when needed.
The CR3600 may be configured to operate in three different modes:
1. Batch Mode Disable (Default) - In default mode, data is NOT stored in memory. The CR3600 will automatically detect when the
Bluetooth radio is out of range, and will beep 4 times each scan to indicate this. The CR3600 will automatically reconnect when
the Bluetooth radio is in range.
2. Log Only Mode - In Log Only Mode, the reader will only store data to its memory.
• The data can ONLY be retrieved by scanning the “Transfer Stored Data in Memory” barcode. Scanning the “Transfer Stored
Data in Memory” barcode will transfer the data to the host device, but not delete the data from the reader’s memory.
• A user must scan the “Delete Buffered Scanned Data from Memory” barcode to clear reader memory.
• The CR3600 will reconnect to the Bluetooth radio when the “Transfer Data in Memory” or the QuickConnect Code is scanned.
• Auto reconnect is disabled when Log Only is enabled.
3. Send & Log Mode - In Send & Log Mode the reader will store a copy to its memory as well as send the data if the reader is
connected.
• The data can be retrieved by scanning the “Transfer Stored Data from Memory” barcode. Scanning the “Transfer Stored Data
in Memory” barcode will transfer the data to the host device, but not delete the data from the reader’s memory.
• A user must scan the “Delete Buffered Scanned Data from Memory” barcode to clear reader memory.
• The CR3600 will reconnect to the Bluetooth radio when the “Transfer Data in Memory” or the QuickConnect Code is scanned.
• Auto reconnect is disabled when Log Only is enabled.
After a successful decode in batch mode, the unit will beep once and the memory LED will turn green indicating stored memory.

Transferring and Deleting Data
There are three different codes to transfer and delete data in memory.
• Transfer All Data in Memory - This will send all data in memory every time the barcode is scanned.
• Transfer Only Unsent Data in Memory - This will send only the data in memory that hasn’t already been sent when the barcode
is scanned (only in batch modes).
• Delete Scanned Data from Memory - Scanning this barcode will erase all data in the reader’s memory.
Batch Mode Disable - Default Reboot

When the CR3600 is in batch/storage mode, a storage icon will appear to indicate the range of storage space that has been used.
17.0 - Attaching the CodeXML® M3 Modem
1. Attach the 8-pin DIN end of the USB or RS232 cable provided to the CodeXML® M3 Modem (Figure 32).

18.0 - Establishing a Bluetooth® Connection
1. If establishing a Bluetooth connection using the Charging Station with embedded CodeXML® Modem, slide the Communication
Mode Switch on the Charger/Modem Station (Figure 33), to Bluetooth mode (the direction of the arrow).
2. Scan the QuickConnect Code located on the front of the Charging Station with embedded CodeXML® modem or on the external
CodeXML® M3 Modem (Figures 34 and 35).
3. The wireless icon located at the top of the reader will flash as it attempts to make connection (Figure 36). The blue LED on the
charging station or CodeXML® M3 Modem (Figures 35 and 36) will also flash as it attempts to connect. The blue LED will turn
solid when connection is established, the CR3600 will beep once and the wireless icon will flash every 10 seconds.

Important Note If Using a non-Code Bluetooth Device:
To connect to a Bluetooth device not manufactured by Code, you will need the Bluetooth address (often referred to as the BD_ADDR)
of that device. The 12-character Bluetooth address can be found on the device near the serial number. Then visit Code’s website at:
http://www.codecorp.com/bdaddr.php and enter the 12-character address to create the QuickConnect Code.
You will need to locate the Communications (COM) Port assigned to the Bluetooth serial port protocol before installing the Bluetooth
Configuration Manager software that is included with your Bluetooth adapter (e.g., COM 10). This is the COM Port through which the
CR3600 will connect.

24.0 - CR3600 DPM
DPM (Direct Part Marks such as Dot Peen and Laser-Etched) reading is enabled by default in CR3600 DPM readers.
Dot Peen and Laser-Etched Reading
Dot Peen and Laser-Etched reading is the default DPM setting. This will also read common 1D/2D printed barcodes.
Dot Peen Barcode Reading
If reading Dot Peen barcodes only, scan the DPM (Dot Peen Only) On configuration barcode to optimize reading for that barcode
type. Scanning the DPM (Dot Peen Only) On configuration barcode will disable laser-etched barcode reading. This will not read
common 1D/2D printed barcodes.
Laser-Etched Barcode Reading
If reading laser-etched barcodes only, scan the DPM (Laser-Etched only) On configuration barcode to optimize laser-etched barcode
reading. Scanning the DPM (Laser-Etched Only) On configuration barcode will disable Dot Peen barcode reading. This will also read

CR3600 DPM Targeting
The optimal reading distance between reader and barcode varies based on barcode type and quality. Typical reading distance is
from 2 inches (50mm) to 4 inches (100mm). To improve reading performance for dot peen (and other) marks, tilt the reader 10 to 45
degrees from vertical so that it is not perpendicular to the barcode.

to be transmitted. Select ‘Upload’ from the main inventory menu. Once data is transmitted, a notification to delete the transmitted
information will appear.
Age/ID Verification
This application is intended to work best in states with non-encrypted drivers’ licenses. States with encrypted formats will show an
‘invalid’ feedback. Customized programming is available to read encrypted formats.
Select the ‘Age’ or ‘ID’ to run program. (Figure 45) Selecting the ‘Age’ application will launch the ‘Verify Age’ screen. (Figure 46)
Application is ready to display the scanned drivers’ license information.
Once a driver’s license is scanned,
one of the following message will

29.0 - CR3600 Maintenance
The CR3600 needs only minimum maintenance to operate. The tips below are suggestions for maintenance.
Cleaning the CR3600
The CR3600 window should be clean to allow the best performance of the device. The window is the clear plastic piece inside the
head of the reader. Avoid touching the window. Your CR3600 uses CMOS technology that is much like a digital camera. A dirty
window may stop the CR3600 from reading barcodes.
If the window becomes dirty, clean it with a soft, non-abrasive cloth or a facial tissue (no lotions or additives) that has been
moistened with water. A mild detergent may be used to clean the window, but the window should be wiped with a water moistened
cloth or tissue after using the detergent.
Technical Support and Returns
To modify any default settings, download the CR3600 Configuration Guide at www.codecorp.com/files.php and scan the appropriate
code. For user specific configurations, contact Application Engineering at Code appeng@codecorp.com.
For all returns Code will issue an RMA number which must be placed on the packing slip when the reader is returned.
