DataMan 360 Series

Fixed-mount barcode readers handle difficult-to-read codes with industry-leading performance and versatile product features.

Automated sorting systems use 1-D and 2-D codes to move, sort, and track boxes through a facility. A manufacturing plant will commonly sort many boxes arriving on a single conveyor into multiple lanes for shipping based on their barcodes. According to the data encoded in each barcode, the conveyor sorts and directs packages for shipping. Labels may be applied to the wrong sides of boxes or need to be read from extreme angles. Others may be compromised or damaged and need to be identified quickly to correct problems. The ability to read these types of codes swiftly and accurately is fundamental to any operation tracking and tracing goods for warehousing and shipping.

DataMan 360 with Xpand technology provides a wide depth of field, and liquid lens technology enables a long depth of field. Together, they accommodate perspective distortion and allow DataMan readers to identify codes at varying heights and depths.
