DataMan 8050 Series Handheld Barcode Reader

High-speed performance, even with challenging barcodes

DataMan 8050 Series Software & Barcode Reading Technology

DataMan software includes several features for the DataMan handheld barcode readers that far surpass other readers on the market.

Featured capabilities include:

  • Market-leading barcode reading technologies for decoding both 1-D and 2-D symbologies
  • Intuitive Setup Tool for the simplest setup and deployment

Proprietary Cognex software algorithms give the DataMan barcode readers 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 Data Matrix 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 DataMan® barcode readers 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, DataMan barcode readers 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.
