Cutting-edge performance for the toughest codes

Improve component traceability and operational efficiency by reading worn or damaged codes and direct-part marks (DPMs) in the harshest manufacturing environments.

Reliably read imperfect DPMs and label-based codes while withstanding oil, water, dirt and repeated collisions. Quickly setup, scan, and review feedback with the built-in OLED display and a range of industrial protocols and communication options.

Intuitive design for optimal efficiency

The reader’s OLED display screen and on-device controls enable operators to setup and start scanning without connecting to a PC.

  • Configure anywhere, anytime: OLED display screen and on-device controls enable operators to setup and start scanning without connecting to a PC.
  • Integrated data dashboard: View important information such wireless signal strength, battery life, and code information details from the OLED display on the device.
  • Clean, consistent information: Naming your reader allows you to easily identify the corresponding base station.
  • Clear operator feedback: Powerful audio tone, color-coded lights, and vibration alert.

Easy Connectivity

On-board industrial protocols enable the DataMan 8700 to seamlessly connect to PLCs and networks. DataMan 8700 supports multiple communication options including corded and wireless options:

  • Wi-Fi: Roam any facility and reach any code in a secure environment by connecting a DataMan 8700 reader to a wireless router for ultimate mobility.
  • Bluetooth direct connect: Pair your reader to a phone, PC, or tablet to review and populate codes to a smart device.
  • Bluetooth connection to intelligent base station:The intelligent base station has the ability to communicate with a PLC or PC via Ethernet with industrial protocols, serial RS-232, or USB.
  • Corded: Continuous communication to a device with USB, RS-232, and Ethernet with industrial protocols.
