Code Launches Revolutionary CR4300 Barcode Reader for iPod

Posted February 15, 2017

Code Code Reader 4300 (CR4300)Code has announced the release of the CR4300, the newest offering in its expanding mobility product line. The CR4300 case transforms an iPod into an enterprise-grade data capture device without the size, weight, expense and power draw of a traditional scan engine module.

By eliminating the scan engine module, the CR4300 is a departure from traditional barcode reader sleds. It combines the iPod camera with a patent-pending optical platform and 2D Revolution, Code’s world-class decoding software, to create a user-friendly, high-performance barcode reader. By adding these capabilities to a popular consumer device, the CR4300 gives businesses a streamlined barcode scanner with the ability to run apps on an interface that is familiar to both developers and users.

“The CR4300 is not like other hardware or software barcode scanning solutions on the market today.” says Code’s director of Product Management, John Deal. “While it lacks the bulk of extra scanning hardware, it doesn’t lack the intuitiveness. Users are given a bright targeting bar and integrated scan buttons to easily find and read barcodes without looking at the iPod screen.”

Additional product features in the CR4300 include: a 3,000 mAh back-up battery to keep the iPod charged and running on long shifts; lightweight design, totaling just 10.1 oz. with the iPod and battery included; durable, disinfectant-ready case built for harsh environments like healthcare; built-in gauge to keep users informed of battery status; quick charging via USB or multi-bay drop-in charger; unencumbered access to all native iPod functions, including the camera.

Datalogic Memor X3 Accelerates Workflows at Siemens

Posted February 4, 2016

With approximately 343,000 employees in over 200 countries, Siemens is one of the world’s largest producers of energy-efficient, resource-saving technologies and a leading supplier of systems for power generation and transmission. In large-scale enterprises such as this, warehouse administration challenges employees with rigid demands. A great number of storage areas with several products coming in and going out at any given time require precise management. The more movement within the warehouse, the harder it is to keep track of operations and maintain accuracy.

The Challenge
Siemens had to confront this issue in its warehouse in Nuremberg, Germany. The company wanted more flexibility to make warehouse processes easier and reduce operating time, ultimately preventing unnecessary additional costs. Previously, employees manually performed several time-consuming steps to assign production orders to storage bins in the SAP program. Siemens wanted to simplify the process for employees and ensure secure data capture using bar codes.

The Solution
Using requirements of faster, easier processes and secure data capture, Michael Powell, the head of order processing at Siemens, contacted Systemhaus SA.SS. Datentechnik AG, a solutions specialist in printing and identification technology. SA.SS Datentechnik AG recommended the Memor X3 mobile computer from Datalogic as the hardware solution that would best fit the company’s needs. These mobile computers are equipped with a Windows operating system and a 2D imager that captures all barcode types, from linear to stacked to 2D codes, including GS1 DataBar. One of the Memor X3 mobile computer’s greatest advantages is its compact size. This fully equipped mobile computer with touchscreen, Wi-Fi connectivity, imager and large memory fits in any shirt or trouser pocket.
