  • DataMan 300 Code Reader

    A quantum leap in barcode reading performance

    The DataMan® 300 series of readers was developed to handle the most difficult-to-read DPM (Direct Part Mark) codes as well as challenging 1-D linear barcodes and 2-D Data Matrix codes and for indexed or high-speed lines.

    Unmatched read rate performance

    • Decode the most challenging 1-D and 2-D barcodes with enhanced 1DMax+™ and 2DMax+™ code-reading algorithms
    • 2DMax+™ algorithm reads DPM codes no matter the mark type or surface
    • 1DMax+ with Hotbars™ technology provides higher read rates of damaged 1-D linear barcodes at a faster pace than ever before

    Flexible lighting and optics

    DataMan 300 DPM reader with controllable lighting
    • Controllable, field interchangeable red lighting module allows you to create the best possible lighting for your part, ensuring the highest read rates of DPM codes
    • The blue lighting module creates optimal lighting for PV solar wafer code reading
    • Flexible lens options—C-Mount lens, S-Mount or a variable focus liquid lens to provide maximum depth of field flexibility


    Ease of deployment

    DataMan 300 DPM reader with intelligent tuning
    • Intelligent tuning automatically adjusts the settings of the integrated lighting to find the optimal light setup for the part
    • Cognex Connect™ communications suite supports industrial protocols
    • Also supports RS-232 for integration into legacy systems




    DataMan 300 series is available in two base models

    The DataMan 300 provides standard resolution of 800x600 pixels and the DataMan 302 is the high resolution model (1280x1024). The DataMan 302 is ideal for situations where a very small code is needed to be found within a very large field of view.
