Cognex Announces Availability of DataMan 150, 260 and 360 Series ID Readers

Cognex Corporation has announced availability of the DataMan 150, 260 and 360 series fixed-mount, image-based ID readers. These new readers deliver unprecedented performance, flexibility, and ease-of-use-and they run the latest Cognex algorithms to achieve the highest possible read rates. The new readers feature: 1DMax with Hotbars2 technology for high-speed reading of damaged or poorly printed 1-D barcodes; 2DMax and patent-pending PowerGrid technology for reliable reading of challenging 2-D codes, including previously unreadable 2-D codes without visible perimeters; Field exchangeable lighting and optics that readily adapt to changing factory conditions and application requirements; and Auto-tune and trigger buttons to set up and use the readers easily without a PC. The serial USB-based DataMan 150 series and Ethernet-based 260 series models offer straight or right-angled configurations to fit into the tightest spaces. This flexible design eliminates the need for equipment redesign or complicated optical paths with mirrors. DataMan 360 series enhancements include a light-ring that provides 360 degree visual read indicator and a Micro SD card for system-level backup and convenient unit restoration or replacement. The DataMan 360 also offers triple the memory of its predecessor, the DataMan 300, allowing for improved image buffering and increased image storage.
