Fixed-mount barcode readers deliver superior read performance for the broadest range of applications.

In automated sorting systems, labels on multiple sides of packages need to be read in rapid succession and from extreme angles. Sorting systems use the 1D and 2D codes on these labels to move and track goods through a facility. A consumer packaged goods (CPG) plant will often sort many boxes arriving on a single conveyor into multiple lanes for shipping, directing packaging according to the data encoded in each barcode. The ability to read all codes, even damaged ones, quickly and accurately is essential for routing goods for distribution.

Cognex image-based barcode readers decode the information on labels at automated sorting locations and ensure packages are routed correctly. DataMan barcode readers with Xpand technology and liquid lens technology provide a wide field of view and long depth of field, respectively. Combined, they handle perspective distortion and allow DataMan readers to read codes at varying heights and depths. Industry-leading read rates of 99.9% maximize productivity rates and ensure that no code goes unread.
