'Quantum leap in barcode reading performance'

23 January 2012

Cognex Corporation has announced its most advanced fixed-mount industrial ID reader ever created—the DataMan 300

The DataMan 300 is designed to handle the most difficult ID code-reading applications on even the highest speed lines. These new readers dramatically increase barcode read rates and speed with a new 1DMax+ algorithm, which incorporates groundbreaking new “Hotbars” technology.

For 2-D matrix and difficult-to-read DPM (Direct Part Mark) codes, reading performance has also been significantly improved from a major upgrade of 2DMax to the 2DMax+ algorithm. With the DataMan 300, set up and deployment is even easier than before, with modular, controllable lighting options and a unique intelligent tuning system.

“It just reads. Period. The DataMan 300 can read any code we challenge it with,” said Carl Gerst, Vice President and Business Unit Manager, ID Products. “Besides unprecedented read rates, the DataMan 300 reader is our easiest to install and maintain, saving our customers time and money—two things they need to allocate to other areas of their operation in order to be successful.”

DataMan 300 series offers two models. The DataMan 300 provides standard resolution of 800x600 pixels and the DataMan 302 is the high resolution model at 1280x1024 pixels. The DataMan 302 is ideal for reading very small DPM codes on small components to ensure full part traceability—a trend for the automotive industry, for example.
