The rugged DataMan® 8000 series of readers offers the industry’s most advanced technology for reading 1-D and 2-D codes regardless of size, quality, printing method or surface, and is the only industrial handheld barcode reader that offers Industrial Ethernet communication and liquid lens technology.
Available wireless and wired
The DataMan 8000 series is equipped with patented auto-exposure algorithms and faster image acquisition and was the first industrial handheld barcode reader to offer integrated liquid lens performance. The faster imaging means readers can now be used in a dual focus mode, which allows users to increase the depth of field or to read a wide range of barcode sizes, from very large multi-inch barcodes to tiny 5 mil 2-D Data Matrix codes.
The DataMan 8000 series of industrial barcode readers is also the first handheld reader to offer Ethernet communication with Cognex Connect™ capability for easy integration into your factory network for real-time product and part traceability.
Cognex Connect provides the most flexibility for communicating via Industrial Protocols such as EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, SLMP (Seamless Message Protocol), Modbus TCP and more in addition to traditional support for USB and RS-232.
Another first for the DataMan 8000 series is the modularity of the communication. The DataMan 8000 series field interchangeable communication modules enable the additional benefit of standardization on one reader platform in corded or cordless models.
