Handheld Barcode Readers for the Mid-Range Market
Caroline Smart, 02-20-2019
Some of the toughest manufacturing and logistics applications involve reading direct part mark (DPM) codes on flat, highly reflective surfaces. This requires powerful barcode reading performance. What it shouldn’t involve is expensive readers or extensive time spent integrating new technology. The best barcode reading solutions offer the latest patented technology and advanced lighting and optics; impressive read rates; and ease of use, all at an exceptional value.
For these reasons, Cognex is proud to introduce the 8070 series handheld barcode readers, which provide customers with high performance at a terrific value. The 8072DL sets an entirely new performance standard for codes marked on flat, shiny surfaces commonly found in the automotive, aerospace, and medical device industries. The 8072ER offers the same advanced image formation for DPM codes with even greater range, easily solving logistics applications that require extended-range barcode reading.
The 8072DL is designed to decode direct part mark (DPM) codes on flat, highly reflective surfaces. With patented algorithms and advanced sensor and lighting technology, the 8072DL can read codes from up to 30 centimeters away without angling the code or part. The 8072ER is built to read 1-D and 2-D label-based codes from up to eight meters away, ideal for scanning pallet labels on high shelves or slips hanging from a warehouse ceiling.
Both models feature rugged housing to withstand harsh factory and warehouse floor environments, as well as field-interchangeable communication modules that seamlessly integrate with factory networks. To maintain high levels of barcode quality and read rates, Cognex also recently released the 8072V, a high-performance DPM barcode verifier. Paired with the 8072DL, the 8072V helps customers demonstrate code quality, certify readability, and prevent read failures.
