Dataman ESD-Safe Barcode Readers

Minimizing electrostatic discharge damage

DataMan ESD-Safe Barcode Readers Technologies

DataMan barcode readers are optimized with patented algorithms to ensure continuously high read rate performance of 1D and 2D symbologies in the most challenging DPM and label-based identification applications.
  • 1DMax®, the best-in-class 1D barcode algorithm, can handle extreme variations in contrast, blur, damage, resolution, quiet zone violations, and perspective distortion. You will be able to read damaged codes more reliably, reducing no-reads.
  • 2DMax® a breakthrough in 2D decoding software, handles a wide range of degradations to the appearance of 2D matrix codes, no matter what the surface.
  • Hotbars® II combines superior signal fidelity with lightning speed to locate, extract, and decode up to 10x the speed of a typical image-based reader. Combining 1DMax with Hotbars technology offers faster processing speeds at lower resolution.
  • PowerGrid® technology dramatically increases read rates in 2D barcode-reading applications when vital elements of the Data Matrix code are missing or damaged. PowerGrid can bring 2DMax to a new level, reading codes without a finder or clocking pattern, or quiet zone.
