  • DataMan Logistics Barcode Readers

    Advanced barcode reading technology for logistics, postal, and parcel applications

    DataMan logistics barcode readers combine the benefits of image-based readers with the ease-of-use and cost of laser scanners for your postal, parcel, and package sorting operations.

    Cognex logistics barcode scanners offer exceptional performance and feature:

    • Proprietary Hotbars™ image-analysis technology, which provides the highest read rates of 1-D linear barcodes including those that are damaged, distorted, blurred, scratched, low height, or low contrast.
    • The ability to analyze no reads for process improvement by providing the ability to see what the reader sees either live on a monitor or by using image archiving with automatic FTP image transfer.
    • No moving parts that need replacing or can wear out.
    • Cognex Connect™ communications suite supports industrial protocols, including high-speed Ethernet for easy integration into the network. 
    • A variety of barcode reader accessories that enable the readers to be customized for each application for optimal performance.
