Cognex Dataman 500 Barcode Readers Selected by Canada's Largest Courier Company

NATICK, MA—March 9, 2011—Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX) announced today that Purolator, Inc., the largest courier service in Canada, has placed purchase orders totaling nearly $250,000 for the new Cognex DataMan® 500 barcode reader.

The DataMan 500 camera-based barcode readers will replace laser-based scanners currently used at weighing stations within Purolator’s sorting and distribution centers.

“The DataMan 500 offers significantly faster read rates than Purolator’s current laser-based systems, and can also read labels with more highly degraded codes,” said Dr. Robert J. Shillman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cognex. “With their existing laser-based scanners, operators were often required to pass packages under the scanners multiple times before the barcodes could be read. The DataMan 500 has been able to read every label on the first attempt, reducing operator processing time by half, and this has significantly improved both operator satisfaction and overall productivity.”

The DataMan 500, introduced in January, is the industry’s first camera-based system capable of reading codes in real-world logistics applications where laser-based readers have previously been the standard. The DataMan 500 offers consistent, reliable reading of 1-D barcodes that lasers cannot read, including damaged, distorted, blurred, scratched, low height and low contrast codes. It also reads codes presented in any orientation, multiple codes within the same image, and 2-D codes such as Data Matrix and QR codes. With no moving parts to wear out, the DataMan 500 also offers exceptional reliability, lower maintenance and longer product life.
