DataMan 470’s innovative technology delivers maximum coverage, speed, and ease-of-use.

Advanced Image Formation

HDR+ code reading compared to HDR, Conventional sensors, and the target source

High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging uses the latest CMOS image sensor technology which is 16 times more detailed than conventional sensors. HDR takes advantage of the extra available image data to globally enhance image quality and contrast.

HDR+ is an advanced 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.

1DMax with Hotbars

Hotbars 1d code reading example

1DMax with Hotbars is a 1D decoding algorithm and technology optimized for omnidirectional barcode reading, decoding up to 10x the speed of a conventional barcode reader.

2DMax with PowerGrid

2DMax read on metal ring

2DMax with PowerGrid is a breakthrough 2D decoding algorithm and technology designed to read 2-D codes with significant damage to or complete elimination of a code’s finder or clocking pattern, or quiet zone.

High-Resolution Sensor

High Resolution Sensor scanning size vs conventional sensor

DataMan 470’s high-resolution sensor enables greater field-of-view and depth-of-field coverage than other readers. It reads large and small codes form various angles, including high density 2D DPM codes.

Liquid Lens Technology

DataMan 470 is equipped with liquid lens (autofocus) technology to allow the reader to adapt to changes in working distances for greater depth-of-field range. Unlike traditional zoom lenses, liquid lenses do not have any moving parts that can wear out or fail.

Multi-Reader Sync

Multi-Reader Sync for tunnel scanning

A multi-reader sync option is available to allow multiple DataMan 470 readers to synchronize for extended field-of-view or for multi-side scanning. The parent reader collects data from the child readers and communicates the overall result to the control system.

Performance Feedback

Performance Feedback to identify trends and chart throughput

Cognex Explorer Real Time Monitoring (RTM) technology provides actionable insights in easy-to-use dashboards in the DataMan Setup Tool to help diagnose and resolve barcode issues. RTM can track and grade the quality of barcode images and provide valuable process control metrics across an entire facility.
