Designed with multiple illumination fields, the CR6000 intuitively selects the field that is most efficient at reading each barcode type. This auto-selection results in quick and accurate data collection from barcodes on hard-to-read surfaces, damaged or smudged barcodes, and barcodes partially obscured by debris. With its bulletproof scanning, the CR6000 is ideal for component tracking on assembly lines and other manufacturing applications.

All purchases are done through one of our many sales partner companies. Code is happy to help consult with you to determine the best partner for your specific needs, project detail and industry.
