DataMan® 8600 series image-based ID readers provide the world’s most advanced barcode reading technology for decoding DPM, 2-D and 1-D codes of varying sizes, quality and marking or printing methods. These handheld DPM barcode readers are designed for the harshest factory floor environments. Equipped with an advanced imaging system and patented flexible lighting technology, the DataMan 8600 series of barcode readers decode the most challenging Direct Part Mark (DPM) barcodes on the widest variety of surfaces. And, the modular communication design supports Ethernet with Industrial Protocols as well as corded and wireless modules to ensure the DataMan 8600 series of readers are ready to meet your application communication requirements.
Cognex’s most powerful algorithms, 2DMax+ ™ and 1DMax+™ with Hotbars,™ enable the DataMan 8600 series image-based readers to decode the most challenging DPM barcodes in the most demanding industrial conditions.
2-D Code Reading TechnologyFor 2-D codes, the DataMan 8600 includes Cognex’s most robust and advanced 2-D algorithms to handle codes regardless of damage, distortion, perspective, low contrast and obstruction as well as small DPM codes.
1DMax+ Technology with HotbarsFor 1-D barcodes, the 1DMax+ algorithm with Hotbars™ image-analysis technology gives DataMan 8600 barcode readers unprecedented performance on damaged or difficult-to-read codes.
DataMan 8600 readers are ideal for applications in any manufacturing environment that require robust DPM and label-based barcode technology and unparalleled reading capability:
