All DataMan 8700 series readers are equipped with the latest patented decoding algorithms, HDR, and a multi-core processor to read codes in under 150 milliseconds. The DataMan 8700DX model, in particular, reads the toughest DPM codes on the market by levering advanced features like a high-speed liquid lens, as well as three styles of illumination (polarized, diffused, and direct).

1DMax with Hotbars

1DMax software identifying difficult 1D codes

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

2DMax with PowerGrid

2DMax reading difficult 2D codes

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

High Dynamic Range (HDR) Imaging

HDR imaging uses the latest CMOS image sensor technology to acquire single images that are significantly more detailed than conventional sensors. It enhances image quality and contrast and captures features that are not visible without HDR.

High speed liquid lens
