Fixed-mount Barcode Readers

Vision-enabled barcode readers with the ease-of-use and cost of laser scanners

John Keating, 01-11-2012

Once in a great while, a company develops a product that changes the way people think about an industry.  In 2012, Cognex did just that with the release of its DataMan 300 fixed-mount industrial ID reader. 

When we were building this product, we thought about what the market wants and came up with a list of items that a fixed-mount barcode reader should be able to have. This is what we came up with:

  • Best in Class 2-D algorithm
  • Best in Class 1-D algorithm
  • Flexible optics
  • Bright internal illumination
  • Bank controlled illumination
  • Modular lighting
  • Tune button
  • Tune exposure
  • Tune modular lighting banks
  • Control external lighting

And, our product development teams made it happen; DataMan 300 offers them all! Early customer feedback has been outstanding so far and we can’t wait to see how the market receives this product. Make sure you go to the DataMan 300 section on our website and view the demo videos of some of these features and stay tuned for more in-depth postings about the DataMan 300…
