New Product: Allen-Bradley 48CR Code Reader

The new Allen-Bradley® 48CR Code Reader from Rockwell Automation is the smallest industrial code reader on the market. The rugged 48CR decodes 1D/2D and Direct Part Marked (DPM) codes and solves the most challenging readings under any condition. Featuring the latest decoding algorithms technology, the 48CR can successfully read damaged and incomplete symbols despite scenarios with poor prints, scratches or various obstructions. The 48CR supports Ethernet/IP™ and can be configured through either the Studio 5000 Logix Designer® Add-On Profile (AOP) or the embedded WebConnect visual browser.

The 48CR is available in a standard model (WVGA, 0.3 MP resolution, fixed focus) and an advanced model (SXGA, 1.2 MP resolution, autofocus). To read codes at any variable range, the reader has adjustable read ranges from 102 mm (4.02 in.) to 400 mm (15.75 in.). For reliable decoding at the speed you need, the 48CR comes with speeds up to 60 fps for fixed focus and 42 fps for autofocus. Other features include 16 LED-integrated illumination, status LEDs and a molded window that can be replaced or interchanged with a polarized or diffuser window for additional application flexibility.

The 48CR solves numerous difficult barcode reading challenges throughout various applications for automotive, packaging, material handling, assembly, pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries.
