Code CR2600 User manual
Quickstart Guide
Establishing a Bluetooth® Connection
1. If establishing a Bluetooth connection using the Charging Station with embedded CodeXML®
Modem, slide the Communication Mode Switch (Figure 10) on the Charger/Modem Station
to Bluetooth mode (the direction of the arrow). For USB communication mode information,
please reference the CR2600 User Manual located at
Code Reader™ 2600 (CR2600)
Scan the QuickConnect Code located on the front of the Charger/Modem Station or on the
external CodeXML® M3 Modem. (Figures 14 and 15).
3. The wireless icon located at the top of the reader will flash as it attempts to make connection.
(Figure 16) The blue LED on the Charging Station (or CodeXML® M3 Modem) will also flash as
it attempts to connect and will turn solid when the connection is established. The CR2600 will
beep once and the wireless icon will flash every 10 seconds. (Figures 14, 15 and 16)
For additional CodeXML® M3 Modem information, please reference the CodeXML® M3 Modem
QuickStart Guide.

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 web site at: and enter the 12-character address to create the
QuickConnect Code.
Charging Station Assembly Instructions
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 CR2600 will connect.
2. (Optional) To attach the weighted base, place the ‘This Side Down’ (Figure 2) side of the
weighted base onto the surface, place the Charging Station on top of it (Figure 3) and secure
with the screws provided. (Figure 3)
1. Plug the barrel side of the USB charge cable or power supply (depending on which you
ordered) into the charger. (Figure 1)
Batch Mode
When the CR2600 is in batch mode, the storage icon (Figure 16) will flash every 10 seconds to
indicate data has been stored.
If the storage memory is full, the storage icon will flash 5 times every second. Data will need to be
downloaded or deleted to free up memory space. Note, the storage icon will not flash if there is
no data stored.
To put the CR2600 into Batch Mode, please reference the CR2600 Configuration Guide located at

3. Rubber feet can be placed on the corners of the weighted base (Figure 4) or directly onto the
Charging Station (Figure 5) to prevent slipping from a surface.

4. (Optional) To mount the Charging Station to a surface place the ‘This Side
Down’ (Figure 4) side of the weighted base onto the surface and secure
with screws. Note: Because surface types differ, screws are not included
to mount a Charging Station to a surface. Place the Charging Station on
top of the secured weighted base (Figure 3) and secure to the base with
the screws provided (Figure 3)
Check Battery Life
Press the fuel gauge button (Figure 11) to determine remaining battery life. If the battery has less
then 10% capacity, the first LED will flash rapidly. For 25% or greater capacity, the LEDs will flash
ON for 4 seconds.

Fuel Gauge Status Indicator While Charging
If the battery has less then 10% capacity, the first LED will flash rapidly while charging. For 25% or
greater capacity, the LEDs will flash ON for 4 seconds and OFF for 1 second. (Figure 12)
5. Plug the USB cable into the computer’s USB port or the power adapter
into the wall outlet.

Place the battery into the reader as shown in
Figure 6. Once in place, the battery will snap
and lock to indicate proper installation. For
battery removal, slide the latch (Figure 7), to
unlock and release the battery.

Using the CR2600
Press and hold a button or trigger on the CR2600, the two blue bars
emitting from the reader are used for targeting. Center the blue bars in
the middle of a bar code. When the bar code is in the reader’s field of
view and at the optimal distance (4” from the bar code) , the reader will
automatically read the code.
The CR2600 will beep, vibrate and the good read indicator will flash
green to indicate a ‘good read’ has occurred. (Figure 16)

CR2600 Default Settings
Out of the box the CR2600 will read the following bar codes:
To charge a reader, remove the plastic ‘Remove
Before Use’ cap, and place the reader into the
Charging Station. (Figure 10)
The default setting on the CR2600 has Suffix Enter disabled. To enable
Suffix Enter, scan the following configuration code. For RS232 Settings,
please refer to the CR2600 Configuration Guide.
