DataMan 470: A Premium Fixed-Mount Barcode Reader for the Most Challenging Applications

Nearly every product uses a 1D or 2D barcode to automate and simplify identification and data capture. Organizations must be able to read codes quickly and accurately for maximum efficiency and throughput. That’s where Cognex comes in. Cognex DataMan fixed-mount barcode readers offer unmatched 1D and 2D code reading performance. These industrial workhorses decode 1D and 2D codes, from printed labels to the hardest-to-read direct part mark (DPM) codes, and deliver industry-leading 99.9% read rates. That’s why the DataMan 70, 150/260, 360, and 503 series have become stalwarts in factory automation and logistics operations around the world.

But to solve complex, high-throughput manufacturing and logistics applications takes a new breed of reader with even greater performance. The new DataMan 470 series fixed-mount barcode reader offers multi-core processing power, new patent pending HDR+ imaging technology, a high-resolution sensor, advanced decoding algorithms, and simple setup for maximum coverage, speed, and ease-of-use.

Fast, powerful performance solves challenging applications

The DataMan 470 barcode reader has seven powerful processing cores, enabling it to run multiple algorithms and processes in parallel at astonishing speeds. It reads challenging 1-D and 2-D codes in varied locations, as well as multiple mixed symbologies simultaneously while maintaining the highest decode rates.

New imaging technology for advanced image formation

HDR+ is an advanced, patent-pending algorithm that stretches the boundaries of HDR technology by further increasing localized contrast changes automatically. This creates a more uniformed image in a single acquisition allowing greater depth-of-field, faster line speeds, and improved handling of difficult codes.

99.9% read rates for optimal throughput and traceability

DataMan 470 series is optimized with patented technologies and advanced algorithms to ensure continuously high read rates of 1-D and 2-D symbologies, regardless of size, quality, printing method, or surface.

Modular options provide maximum flexibility

DataMan 470’s innovative design with modular lighting, lens, and communication options adjusts to solve any barcode reading application.

Performance feedback

DataMan 470 series includes Gigabit Ethernet for fast, full-resolution image transfer to help diagnose the cause of unread codes. Real Time Monitoring (RTM) [Link: technology provides performance feedback for the DataMan 470 in easy-to-use dashboards to help with process optimization.
