DataMan 300

Take a Quantum Leap in Barcode Reading Performance Achieve higher read rates for better efficiency with Cognex DataMan 300

The new DataMan 300 series of readers was developed to handle the difficult-to-read DPM (Direct Part Mark) codes as well as provide high read rates for challenging 1-D barcodes and 2-D Data Matrix codes.

  • 1DMax+™ with Hotbars™ technology provides higher read rates of damaged 1-D linear barcodes at a faster pace than ever before
  • Controllable, field interchangeable lighting modules allow you to create the best possible lighting for your part, ensuring the highest read rates
  • Intelligent tuning automatically adjusts the settings of the integrated lighting to find the optimal

Additional features and benefits:

  • Enhanced 1DMax+ and 2DMax+ code-reading algorithms for reading the most challenging 1-D and 2-D codes
  • Flexible lens options C-Mount lens, S-Mount or a variable focus liquid lens to provide maximum depth of field flexibility—one reader does it all
  • Cognex Connect communications suite supports industrial protocols as well as RS-232 connectivity for integration into legacy systems
  • and much much more!

DataMan 300 series is available in two base models:

DataMan 300 : 800x600 pixels

DataMan 302 : 1280x1024 pixels

The DataMan 302 is ideal for reading for reading very small DPM codes in a large field of view or on small components.
