Features of Fixed Mount High Speed Barcode Scanners

  • DataMan SeriesA high-speed advanced platform that runs the latest proprietary Cognex algorithms for decoding both 1-D and 2-D symbologies
  • 1DMax™ with Hotbars II™ provides high read rates on 1-D barcodes, even those that may be damaged or distorted
  • Hotbars II delivers “barcode stitching” technology and 0.8 ppm (pixels per module) decoding speed to help you solve applications with fewer readers and less complexity
  • 2DMax® with patent-pending PowerGrid™ technology decodes severely damaged or poorly marked 2-D matrix codes, and can even read 2-D codes without visible perimeters or quiet zones
  • 2DMax with PowerGrid overcomes variations in lighting, marking method, code quality, or surface finish — including damaged finder and clocking patterns and quiet zone violations
  • Intuitive Setup Tool for the simplest setup and deployment in real time
  • Intelligent tuning technology automatically adjusts the settings of the integrated lighting to find the optimal light setup for the part
  • Auto-tune and trigger buttons make the readers easy to set up without a PC or HMI
  • 1-D and 2-D quality metrics for process control monitoring and thresholding
  • Various trigger modes (self, single, burst, etc.) to meet the broadest range of customer applications
  • JavaScript programming for easiest PLC connection and integration on the factory floorDetails of High Speed Barcode Scanners

Features of Handheld High Speed Barcode Scanners

  • DataMan 8500Market-leading barcode reading technologies for decoding both 1-D and 2-D symbologies
  • Intuitive Setup Tool for the simplest setup and deployment

Proprietary Cognex software algorithms give the DataMan barcode readers unmatched code reading performance:

  • 1DMax+ code reading algorithm with the patent-pending Hotbars image-analysis technology provides higher read rates of 1-D linear barcodes, even those with damage, at a faster pace than ever before.
  • 2DMax+ for decoding severely damaged or poorly marked 2-D matrix codes. Overcomes variations in lighting, marking method, code quality, or surface finish.
