Code | CR900FD | The future-proof investment. The CR900FD`s versatility and value

The future-proof investment.
The CR900FD is an area imaging bar code reader with flexible decoding
capabilities. The result? An aggressive bar code reader that out of the box rapidly
decodes 1D bar codes and can be upgraded to read a single 2D symbology—or a
suite of 2D symbologies. And you can do so affordably, intelligently and flexibly
(think linear scanner price) with the purchase of a license key.
The CR900FD’s versatility and value don’t stop there.
Designed with an auto-detect stand mode, the CR900FD seamlessly transitions
from in-stand to out-of-stand reading. It outperforms single line laser scanners
and linear imagers with full omnidirectional bar code reading. And it features two
feedback indicators: LED and audible tone, so users are always aware a ‘good
read’ occurred.
Features & Benefits

The programming versatility of the CR900FD allows it to be quickly integrated
into enterprise solutions to speed up workflow processes, including populating
loyalty program forms, in-store credit applications and more, with our driver
license parsing applications.
A forward-functioning, flexible device, the CR900FD is an unbeatable addition to
your growing operation.

*Data Matrix is used for configuration codes on the CR900FD, however additional licensing is
required to enable full Data Matrix reading. Expect other 2D symbologies to perform similarly to
Data Matrix.
