The CR2600 is an ultra-fast, durable barcode reader that features an aggressive scan engine to decode all 1D, 2D and Postal barcode symbologies. Its patented dual field optics make transitioning from decoding wide to very small barcodes seamless. While patented glare-reduction technology means reading barcodes on shiny surfaces is no longer a challenge.

The CR2600 is available in both palm and handled configurations, and features a durable quick-release, rechargeable, battery cartridge. For a truly mobile solution, battery cartridges accurately measure charge level and display battery life using a 4 LED fuel gauge indicator.

By scanning the QuickConnect barcode located on the charging station, the CR2600 quickly establishes a Bluetooth connection between the reader and the host device – enabling users to transmit barcoded data into any application. For added versatility, the CR2600 can be paired with any Bluetooth-enabled mobile device.
