  • DataMan 302 Solar ID Code Reader

    High read rates with flexible optics and lighting for all solar traceability applications

    DataMan® 302 barcode reader with integrated blue illumination is available for solar PV wafer traceability initiatives. The high resolution (1280x1024 pixels) image-based ID reader is ideal for decoding the challenging laser marked ECC-200 Data Matrix codes on PV wafers that comply with the industry standard SEMI PV29-0212.

    The DataMan solar reader can be used to read DPM (Direct Part Mark) codes on PV wafers or thin-film glass panels making it the most versatile reader for the entire solar industry.

    Unmatched read rate performance

    • Decode multiple codes within in one image presented at any angle
    • 2DMax+™ algorithm can handle variations in marking, damaged Data Matrix clocking or timing patterns and codes further degraded during the harsh manufacturing process

    Flexible lighting and optics

    DataMan 302 Solar ID Reader with integrated blue light illumination
    • The blue lighting module allows you to create the best possible lighting for reading marks on blue PV wafers ensuring the highest read rates of DPM codes
    • The red lighting module allows you to create the best possible lighting for reading 2-D barcodes on thin film glass panels
    • Flexible lens options—C-Mount lens, S-Mount or a variable focus liquid lens provides maximum depth of field flexibility to ensure one reader model can be used for robotic presentation scanning (at high speeds), within confined spaces, as well as for decoding small marks within large fields of view (FOV)

    Ease of deployment

    • Intelligent tuning automatically adjusts the settings of the integrated lighting to find the optimal light setup for the part
    • Cognex Connect™ communications suite supports industrial protocols
    • Also supports RS-232 for integration into legacy systems
