Automation Systems and Controls introduces the DataMan 500 ‘laser killer’ camera image based barcode readers from Cognex.
DataMan 500 image based barcode readers combine the benefits of camera image-based readers with the ease-of-use of modern laser scanners. Unlike traditional laser scanners, these barcode readers can read 1D and 2D barcodes.
Improved read rate is a distinct advantage in DataMan 500 barcode readers.
Packages typically need to be handled more than once when barcode scanners cannot read a barcode, causing additional labour and material costs. Rework results in increased overhead and lost margins.
The DataMan 500 image based barcode readers can help reduce production costs while improving read rates over traditional laser scanners.
Key features of DataMan 500 camera based barcode readers:
- Reads 1D and 2D barcodes with IDMax decoding technology
- Acquires images at rates of up to 1,000 frames/second through Cognex proprietary imaging technology
- Longer product life
- Auto focus and Ethernet connectivity capabilities
DataMan 500 image based barcode readers offer high efficiency in barcode reading and are suitable for the logistics, retail distribution and postal segments.
