This patented, high performance, miniature barcode imaging engine. The CR8000 continues Code’s legacy of dual optical fields – while most devices have a single field enhanced for a specific application, the CR8000 has both a high-density field for reading the smallest of barcodes and a wide angle field for reading oversized barcodes giving you two readers in one.

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.
