CR-1302 Barcode Reader

CR-1302 Barcode Reader

The CR-1302 Barcode Reader is a versatile industrial 2D barcode reader for high-speed barcode reading applications. The CR-1302 delivers unprecedented barcode detection and decoding with 30 full-frames decodes per second with 1.3 Megapixel image resolution.  The CR-1302 camera includes our high-performance CodeMAX technology, that robustly decodes distorted and damaged low-quality symbols. This includes wrinkled symbols, curved symbols, glossy symbols, scratched symbols, poorly printed symbols, and symbols with partly damaged or missing finder- and clock patterns.

Typical applications include DPM reading and verification, electronics product tracking, distribution & POS/retail, small objects sorting, E-shop warehouse in/outbound logistics, medical devices traceability and food & beverage outbound logistics. To provide simple electrical integration, the reader also includes a dual distance sensor subsystem that provides automated object detection, thus eliminating the need for interfacing to other external detection sensors. The CR-1302 features a solid and rugged design with IP65 enclosure and uses standard industrial 100Mbit Ethernet for communication and data output. Optional high-lumen LED front modules are available which is easily mounted without any external wiring, thus eliminating the need for external lighting.
