CR1400 Industrial Barcode Scanner

The Code CR1400 has reached end of life. It has been replaced by the Code Reader 1500.

The Code CR1400 barcode scanner is a compact and durable reader featuring a patented dual-field optical platform. The CR1400 features an IP54 seal which prevents internal dust accumulation and protects against water splashes from any direction. This environmental defense combined makes the CR1400 barcode scanner an effective tool in harsher healthcare and manufacturing work places.

In healthcare applications, the CR1400 can scan all standard barcodes, including difficult to read codes found on items such as syringes, IV bags, and items with extra plastic wrapping.

The CR1400 offers 128 MB Flash ROM, 32MB RAM, option of high density or wide field scanning and the ability to edit scanned data via commonplace JavaScript. (Additional License Required) The Code imager is also able to output scanned images in the format of JPEG or Bitmap.

  • Reads 1D, 2D, postal barcodes and OCR
  • Glare reduction technology for scanning on shiny surfaces
  • Ability to custom parse data using JavaScript (Additional License Required)
  • Compact form factor

Code CR1400 Reviews

POSGuys Rating:

The CR1400 is a mere 5.5 inches tall, that is just about the average length of a ball point pen or mechanical pencil. This is useful for environments where space is at a premium and every inch of counter space counts.

Note that while the CR1400 can scan 1D and 2D barcodes from phone screens, it does not scan from all screens, (It does not scan from LCD monitors for example.)

Code CR1400 Video

Hi, it's Camille with Today we're taking a look at Code CR1400 barcode scanner. Code's a new barcode scanner developer. They have a lot of history doing age-verification systems and scanning in that field, and they're just now branching out into imagers and barcode scanners. This is a 2D imager, so it has the ability to scan off of cell phones, reading 1D barcodes. It can scan micro barcodes, and is highly compact and versatile for many situations.

The CR1400 is capable of reading 1D and 2D barcodes. That includes PDF417s and micros, so here's your 1D barcodes, [beeping] including GS1, and smaller GS1. As you can see here, the tiny little data-matrix, it has no problem reading those. You can see that blue light, that's the targeting reticle. Get your PDF417s. Got just a tiny little 1D barcode on this battery, it has no problem reading it. We can scan in bright light, so I'm gonna turn on my light here, and scan [beep] 1D barcode. No problem. I'm also gonna do a quick scratch test just to see how aggressive it is. I'm gonna run a line through it. [beep] Still scans. I'm gonna run some more lines through it, we're just gonna make it really dark and see if it'll scan through that. [beep] Still scanning. Just gonna cover it up so it's really low contrast. Scan. [beep] And it still makes it. That's pretty decent. Now I'll show you how to scan, how to switch configurations really fast. I'm gonna enable motion detection scanning. So you just get the configuration guide that we have downloadable online, [beeps] and then you scan it, and now it'll start looking for barcodes whenever you move the scanner. And then you can also do continuous scan, so that every time it sees a barcode, it will scan. Now, I kind of have a demo model right here, but they're coming out with one that will auto-configure, so you won't have to actually configure, but in this way you can use it in it's hands-free stand.

The CR1400 is capable of reliably scanning 1D barcodes on cell phones. It reads 2D barcodes much much better on print. As you can see here, it's a very compact scanner. It's about the size of a pen. It's much smaller than most. And some of it's unique features, the more notable one, is it has a vibration, so, every time that I get a successful scan, I get feedback by way of vibration in my hand, as well as a green light, and a beep. These are all configurable, you can turn them on or shut them off as you need for your industry.

A unique feature of the CR1400 is it's blue targeting reticle. See how the bars separate. So when the bars are together, that is your ideal scanning range. And it comes into play here, where you have no problem scanning. Now you can still scan as you get closer, but it's not intended to be that close.

The CR1400 would be good for healthcare industries, where you might have micro barcodes on syringes or IV fluid bags. Surfaces that have a glossy finish to them, this is very good for that. It's also very compact and good for situations where you either don't have a lot of room, like if you wanted to slip it into a nurses station, or you have smaller hands. I myself have smaller hands, and I find this pretty comfortable. It is available in USB or serial interfaces, black or white, and it also has an IP54 seal, so that's another feature that makes it good for the healtcare industry because it's pretty well sealed. It is one of our more affordable imagers, so it's a very good value. You're paying very little for what you get. And also comes with a 5-year warranty.
