The CR1500 (healthcare version in light grey) is built with a CodeShield® Level 3 disinfectant-ready housing. It is PVC-free, and IP54 rated, protecting the components of the CR1500 against harsh chemical cleaning agents, dust, and water ingress. The robust housing is even built to withstand multiple drops to concrete.
The CR1500 (industrial/retail version in dark gray) is built to overcome the real-world challenges that present in industrial operations. The CR1500 can read poor-quality codes printed on varied surfaces, laser-etched direct part marks during the manufacturing process, or barcodes as small as 2 mils (DPM decoding available via additional licensing).
