Cognex: Compact bar-code reader

April 21, 2017
Cognex Corp. has announced the addition of the DataMan 70 series to its line of compact fixed-mount label-based bar-code readers; unit delivers the highest read rates for 1-D and 2-D label-based bar-codes in a form factor small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.

Cognex’s DataMan 70 series offers manufacturing and logistics companies higher performance than single-line and raster laser scanners, at an equivalent cost. Its flexible configuration options and small size also make it ideal for mounting in tight spaces on production lines and in machinery.

The new model offers more advanced image formation to read even damaged or distorted label-based codes, and it’s designed with no moving parts, meaning it won’t require maintenance.

DataMan 70 is optimized with industry-leading bar-code reading algorithms and individually controlled LEDs to ensure continuously high read rates. Measuring just 22.2 mm x 35.8 mm x 42.4 mm, it is ultra-compact, yet powerful enough to perform the most challenging label-based bar-code reading applications.
