MX-1000 Vision-enabled Mobile Terminal

Combining fast, image-based barcode reading with your mobile device

MX-1000 Series Technology

Proprietary Cognex software algorithms give the MX-1000 mobile terminal unmatched code reading performance:

  • 1DMax code reading algorithm with the patent-pending Hotbars image-analysis technology provides higher read rates of 1-D linear barcodes, even those with damage, at a faster pace than ever before.
  • 2DMax for decoding severely damaged or poorly marked 2-D matrix codes. Overcomes variations in lighting, marking method, code quality, or surface finish.

Cognex Proprietary Technologies
Cognex offers the most advanced technology available for 1-D barcode and for 2-D DataMatrix code reading. Regardless of the barcode symbology, size, quality, printing method, or surface the codes are marked on, we can read it!

1D Barcode Reading

1-D Barcode Reading
Cognex MX-1000 mobile terminals provide the highest read rates for 1-D barcodes handling extreme variations of code degradation with 1DMax software algorithm and the patent pending Hotbars image analysis technology. Read barcodes omnidirectionally and multiple codes simultaneously.

2D Barcode Reading

2-D Code Reading
From easy to read 2-D codes on labels to challenging Direct Part Marks (DPM) on chips, plastic, ceramics, glass, or metal, MX-1000 mobile terminals provide the most robust reading reliability for all industries with the patented 2DMax reading algorithm. Even overcome challenges such as poor marking quality or damaged clocking patterns on codes.
