Top four advantages over laser scanners
Cognex DataMan and MX series of industrial, image-based barcode readers decode 1-D and 2-D codes, from printed labels to the hardest to read direct part mark (DPM) codes, and deliver industry-leading read rates.

So one of my main goals for my work life is to convince you to do away with laser scanners for logistics barcode scanning applications and move to what I like to call “Supercharged” camera-based barcode readers
The way I see it, is that there are four really good reasons to use our new camera-based barcode reading technology over lasers:
- Higher read rates: lasers cannot compete with higher read rates that can reduce costs and increase throughput
- Powerful visualization: by seeing what the reader sees, and storing images, DCs have access to data for continuous process improvement
- Lower equipment costs: because camera-based ID readers have no moving parts, they are inherently more robust than laser scanners
- Future proofing: because imagers can read two-dimensional (2-D) codes, the logistics industry can keep pace with this future trend
