CC Capture

CC-2D Barcode Reader



CC-2D ChromaChecker™ Capture Barcode Reader

supports all ChromaChecker Capture recommended codes:

Data Matrix


Code 128

Recommended for:

• Measurement task
• Personal ID 

Recommended for:

• Measurement task
• Personal ID 

Recommended for:

• Job ID
• Customer ID


From a practical point of view, Data Matix offers the smallest size,
while Code 128 offers human/reader readable font - useful for auto Job description (RIP side).
QR codes might be easier to implement in some existing systems.


If there is a limited space Data Matrix code can be as small as a single patch.
Minimal G7  control-strip with Measurement Task alias code (A01)


In this case code and all patches are 4x4 mm. CC-2D can read code when the distance is 10-70 mm
Aliases, when based on 3 characters (First for Press, Second for Track, Third for Control-strip/Instrument), cover over a half million combinations.

Quick User Manual:

A. Connecting CC-2D with CC Capture 

  • Launch CC Capture Application on your Mac or Windows PC
  • Connect CC-2D to your Windows 10 PC or Mac  - wait for few seconds

    Grey Barcode Icon (bottom menu in CC Capture) should become green - Reader should beep and green indicator on the reader informs about successful connection. If so you may start using CC-2D.


Options that may change the way your CC Capture works:

Operator Single / Multiply 

The Multiple Operator is declared the Operator has to authenticate himself before every measurement.  This option is dedicated for measurement station there more than one Operator is using a system and it is important to assign each measurement to specific press operator. 

Mode Manual/Automatic

When you select Automatic all measurement tasks can be selected/changed only by reading proper barcode - no manual operation is possible. 

Connect Automatically

CC Capture will detect and connect CC-2D automatically. No additional user activity is required.



B. Optional Reader preferences 

If you need you may change default settings of your reader by scanning related code.
The quick manual has a limited list of option - for advanced setting consult Full CC-2D manual.

Trouble-shooting Guide

  1. Unplug from the USB socket and plug device back. Be sure that the USB port delivers sufficient power to the reader – a 270 mA current is required for the device to operate – simple try another USB socket or use a powered hub.

  2. When connected, the system should recognize CC-2D reader as:

    “KeyPos SF” USB HID device.

  3. When connected a green light on the top of the reader and sound should confirm a proper connection.

  4. If the problem still exists – reset reader (scan “Reset” code)

  5. If it doesn’t help – scan “USB-HID-POS” code and reconnect.

Plan "B" (working in manual connection mode)

If your computer/operating system doesn't recognize reader you may use the following method:


  1. If the problem still not solved switch your reader to Virtual Comm mode (scan the barcode)and connect barcode Reader manually:

  2. In the CC Capture select device from the list (look for proper COM port on PC or usbmodem... on Mac.)
  3. Scan Dot Matrix code below to test reader

  4. If test window is showing content: ChromaChecker CC-2D - click the “Connect” button.
    Checking Connect automatically checkbox will re-establish the connection in the future.
