CC Capture

Plug&Play CC-2D



ChromaChecker™ Capture Barcode Reader

There is no smarter way to control CC Capture — our dedicated reader will work seamlessly helping you to:

  • Recognize Operator by reading his personal barcode
  • Set automatically all measurement parameters - scanning template, track, printing device...
  • Describe measurement with additional information: Job Name and Customer Name 

CC-2D comes with bracket, that enables fixing reader to the table or on the wall.
Hands-free Mode will trigger readings automatically.


Options that affect the way CC Capture can be configured to work with the Bar code reader:

Single Operator vs Multiple Operator Operations

Capture can be configured to work with a single press or operator, or multiple presses and multiple operators, this is configured in Capture Preferences. In multiple operator modes, Capture will not allow a measurement until the bar code reader is used and identifies the operate/press that the measurement is from. This allows each measurement to be attributed to an 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. 




CC-2D 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.

Trouble-shooting Guide

  1. Unplug from a USB port and plug back in. Be sure that a USB port can deliver sufficient power to the reader (120 mA current required). Try another USB port or a powered USB hub.

  2. When successfully connected computer will recognize the reader as: “KeyPos SF” USB HID device

  3. When successfully connected a green light on top of the reader will illuminate, and it should beep.

  4. If the problem still exists, reset the reader by scanning this “Reset” code to reset factory defaults.

  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 above steps did not solve the problem, switch the reader to: VirtualComm mode (scan the bar code) and connect the bar code reader manually:

  2. In the ChromaChecker Capture, select device from list
    (look for proper COM port on PC or "usmodem..." 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.
