The Code Reader™ 1000 (CR1000) features a compact design that takes up limited workspace without compromising bar code
reading performance. The patented dual-field optical platform of the CR1000 allows users to scan both wide bar codes and
very small bar codes with the same device. In addition, the CR1000 features Code’s glare reduction technology for scanning
bar codes printed on shiny surfaces, such as bottles, syringes and IV bags. This patented glare reduction technology allows
the CR1000 to be configured to read bar codes shown on mobile phones in such applications as mobile ticketing and mobile
The bright blue aiming bar of the CR1000 makes reading bar codes simple and intuitive. In addition, the reader features
Code’s new Affinity rapid disconnect cable set which offer durable connectivity to both the reader and the host device without
compromising the ability to quickly remove and replace damaged cables. For data editing and parsing, end users can take
advantage of Code’s JavaScript rules to create custom routines and applications that are easily embedded into the reader.
The unique design of the reader gives System Integrators and Value Added Resellers the flexibility to use the CR1000 in a wide
range of applications. For retail applications, the CR1000 can be used in either hands-free or handheld mode and can be
combined with various peripherals for truly unique point-of-sale solutions. With
environmentally friendly power management, the CR1000 boasts the lowest power
consumption for a product in its class. Whether its mobile devices such as workstationson-wheels, tablet PCs or environmentally conscious kiosk operators, the CR1000 power
consumption won’t drain your battery or your pocketbook.
(Dark Gray CR1000)
Applications for the CR1000 include: Healthcare, Mobile coupon or ticketing (event, airline, cinema, etc), Pharmacy, Patrol
Vehicles, ATMs or Kiosks, Retail, and Manufacturing.
