Code Corporation Code Reader 2500 (CR2500) Code Corporation

Code Reader 2500 or CR2500

With new high-performance bar code reading technology the Code Reader 2500 (CR2500) is the most advanced mobile bar code reader on the market today.

The Code CR2500 decodes bar codes faster and offers features not found in other readers, including new automatic glare reducing illumination technology. The result is unequaled performance, even on difficult reading surfaces, including circuit boards, IV bags, patient-wristbands, driver licenses and other shiny or curved surfaces.

The Code CR2500 also offers the next generation in dual-field optics and is the only bar code reader that can read both wide linear and the smallest of 2D bar codes. The optimal focus and field of view indicator of the CR2500 make bar code reading even easier than before.


Code Reader 2500 Highlights

  • NEW reflection and glare reducing illumination
  • High speed digital image capture
  • Reads both wide linear and 2D matrix bar codes
  • Unequaled performance on rounded, curved, and shiny surfaces
  • Multicolor LEDs with optimal focus and FOV indicator
  • Over 10MB of batch data and JavaScript memory
  • Powerful data management capability via JavaScript
  • Firmware is field upgradeable
  • Data output via Bluetooth, USB, RS-232 or PS/2
  • Lightweight, ergonomic modular design
  • Equally excels in batch,cabled or wireless modes


Wireless Mode: The Code CR2500 wireless version features a 2.4 GHz class 1 Bluetooth radio with a 300 foot operating range. The CR2500 may be instantly paired with any Bluetooth device by generating a QuickConnect code on our QuickConnect code page. Code supports Bluetooth V1.2, which is a proven, reliable method for replacing cables with secure wireless communications in a wide variety of devices. When using the CodeXML Bluetooth Modem, or the CodeXML Router and a Bluetooth V1.2 compliant radio, the features of adaptive frequency hopping and the rapid creation of new connections provide unsurpassed efficiencies in cordless data operations, and a new level of performance when co-sited with 802.11 systems.

Batched Mode:
The Code CR2500 features a 1950 mAH Lithium-Ion battery with 10 MB of non-volatile memory and recharges when connected via the USB, PS/2, and RS-232 (serial) cable. The CR2500 was designed for secure and errorless batch operation.

Cabled Mode:
The standard USB interface provides plug-and-play USB HID (keyboard) input for Windows 98, Me, 2000 and XP. The RS-232 (serial) interface supports serial port devices. The PS/2 (keyboard) interface provides plug-and-play support for a wide variety of legacy devices that use the PS/2 keyboard interface, including WIN NT and Unix platforms.

About Code Corporation logo
Code Corporation is a technology leader in the latest generation of image based bar code reading systems.

About 2D Barcode Scanners
A 2D Barcode Scanner can interpret two-dimensional barcodes, which store data in two dimensions, rather than in just a series of black and white bars. 2D barcodes look like checkerboards or a series of traditional barcodes stacked atop one another. 2D Barcode Scanners use both CCD and Imaging technology to read barcodes.

About Cordless Barcode Scanners
Cordless Barcode Scanners provide portable solutions for rugged environments where users can benefit from the enhanced flexibility, mobility and safety associated with eliminating the data cable. Cordless Barcode Scanners are ideally suited for applications in tough industrial environments, such as loading docks where shipping and receiving of materials requires significant freedom of movement, as well as manufacturing applications where eliminating the cable minimizes the potential for accidents.
