Code Turns the iPhone® 5s Into an Advanced Barcode Reader

Salt Lake City, UT – March 11, 2014Code announces the release of its new barcode reader, a scanning sled for use with the Apple® iPhone® 5s. The Code Reader™ 4405 (CR4405) (buy here from Legacy Technology Services) transforms the iPhone 5s into an advanced data capture device, capable of reading 1D , 2D and Postal barcode symbologies.

"The CR4405 signifies our dedication to being a leader in barcode reading technology,” explains Code’s CEO and President George Powell. "Its development aims to expand our product portfolio with a durable and sophisticated product offering that streamlines our customers’ workflow by combining Apple technology with Code’s state-of-the-art barcode imaging platform.”

Designed to increase productivity and efficiency, the CR4405 is a cost-effective way to convert the popular iPhone 5s into a comprehensive mobile barcode reading solution ideal for deployment into industries that rely on high performing mobile devices - such as healthcare, retail, government, and event management applications.

The product’s sleek design is both lightweight and ergonomic, and is the only iPhone 5s barcode reading sled that features replaceable, rechargeable battery cartridges for rapid swap-out of depleted batteries, to eliminate workflow interruptions.

The device’s rugged construction touts a protective coating for the iPhone 5s touch-screen that tolerates heavy use, and maintains accessibility to all on-screen functions. This durable housing withstands harsh environments, and consists of disinfectant ready plastics that can endure frequent cleaning with rigorous chemicals. The sled also features multiple locking clips that securely hold the phone in place, to prevent damage or debris from reaching the device.

"The CR4405 sled is a reflection of the robust functionality of Code’s products, and how well we anticipate and adapt to market demands,” continues Powell. "It’s a way our customers can both protect their investments, and minimize any issues that may result from interfacing varying technologies.”

As with all of Code’s offerings, the sled encompasses a world-class decoding platform with superior barcode reading performance. It includes a software development kit to tailor scanner applications, and users can choose from several charging stations; including single-, quad-, and multi-bay stations with spare sled battery charging racks that can be conveniently mounted to the wall, or placed on the floor.
