Code introduces its next generation of wireless handheld barcode readers for the healthcare sector


Code, an innovator in healthcare automation and mobile technology, is launching its highly anticipated next generation of wireless handheld barcode readers.

Code states that the CR2700 is the new gold standard for healthcare barcode scanning, delivering unmatched reading performance in a seamless package, with inductive charging, to support even the most rigorous infection control practices.   

Worried about infection control? Don’t be. With the introduction of wireless (inductive) charging, Code has eliminated any exposed metal. Combined with seamless construction, the only IP65 rating on the market, and top-of-the-line CodeShield plastics, the CR2700 can be quickly and completely wiped down with even the harshest chemicals.

"We are excited to roll out these new Code scanners," said Joseph Hooks, Director, CTO, and CISO at Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters in Norfolk, Virginia. "Our infection control processes are very strict, and we need technology designed to withstand repeated disinfecting."

With the addition of inductive charging, Code has eliminated all exposed metal on its new product, and created a sleek design with fewer nooks, gaps and cutouts to promote easier cleaning. CodeShield plastics and the only IP65 rating in the healthcare market give the CR2700 unrivaled ruggedness to survive the daily rigors of hospital use. 

The CR2700 features Bluetooth 5, enabling it to securely connect to a variety of devices with ease. By additionally implementing a Low Energy radio (BLE), Code has extended the battery life on the new reader to further minimise downtime during shifts. A built-in gauge tells users when it is time to change the battery, which can quickly be swapped for a fresh one, getting nurses right back to caring for patients. Available in either palm or handled form factors, and with a variety of mounting options for chargers, hospitals can choose the exact configuration they require to meet the needs of their unique environments.

The state-of-the-art CR2700 is also packed with a slew of features to help hospital IT efficiently deploy and manage their scanners. With the ability to track service start dates and vital battery statistics, such as charge frequency and remaining life, the CR2700 provides a new level of asset visibility and replacement planning. Code is ready to assist with installation and training options to ensure a smooth rollout, and Code Complete protection plans practically eliminate downtime.

"The CR2700 is a purpose-built scanner for healthcare, and is not adapted from a retail or commercial product like others on the market," said Hong Ji, Handheld Program Manager. "As a fourth generation product, it incorporates over fifteen years of feedback from nurses, doctors and hospital IT staff into a design that truly embodies the voice of the healthcare community."
