Ultra-Compact Fixed-Mount Barcode Reader
Cognex has also added some new products to their portfolio of bar code readers. The new DataMan 70 offers the best-in-class performance in regards of speed and reliability for applications especially in the packaging of food, medicines and consumer goods. It delivers the highest read rates for 1-D and 2-D label-based barcodes in a form factor small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Cognex’s DataMan 70 series offers manufacturing and logistics companies higher performance than single-line and raster laser scanners, at an equivalent cost. Its flexible configuration options and small size also make it ideal for mounting in tight spaces on production lines and in machinery.
“We’ve seen tremendous demand for our compact fixed-mount barcode readers from laser scanner users tired of low performance and short product lifespans,” says Carl Gerst, Cognex Senior Vice President, ID Products. “The new DataMan 70 offers more advanced image formation to read even damaged or distorted label-based codes, and it’s designed with no moving parts, meaning it won’t require maintenance.”
DataMan 70 is optimized with industry-leading barcode reading algorithms and individually controlled LEDs to ensure continuously high read rates. Measuring just 22.2mm x 35.8 mm x 42.4 mm, it is ultra-compact, yet powerful enough to perform the most challenging label-based barcode reading applications.
