Introducing the Cognex DataMan 50 and 60 (50L,50S,60L,60S)

The DataMan 50/60L is a new series of compact barcode readers designed for 1-D oriented barcode reading. The DataMan 50/60S is a complementary, new series of compact readers designed for 1-D and 2-D barcode reading. Small in size but exceptional in barcode reading performance, the DataMan 50L measures just 23.5mm x 27mm x 43.5mm and features an IP65-rated housing. It is ideal for mounting in very tight spaces on production lines and in machinery. Both readers are equipped with Hotbars™, a proprietary image-analysis technology that delivers the highest read rates in the industry.
DataMan 50 DataMan 60
• DataMan 50(L/S) exceptionally small size with USB and RS-232 connectivity
• DataMan 60(L/S) offers Ethernet, USB and RS-232 connectivity

Part Numbers:  DMR-50L-00, DMR-60L-00, DMR-50S-00, DMR-60S-00

No Moving Parts
Moving parts can wear out and require replacement. The DataMan product line is designed with no moving parts, increasing effective product life and potentially decreasing maintenance costs!

Hotbars image-analysis technology
dramatically increases the decoding speed of damaged or poorly presented 1-D linear barcodes. It has revolutionized the way barcodes are located and decoded. As a result, DataMan readers have unprecedented read rates and more time for the decoding phase of code reading thereby dramatically improving the ability to read badly damaged codes. This proven technology, used in the full range of DataMan barcode readers, ensures even the most challenging barcodes found in industrial applications can be read. With Hotbars, the DataMan 50/60L just reads.

Fast and Easy Setup
The DataMan 50/60 (L/S) features a three-position lens and an integrated
aimer for easy setup at different working distances. The incredibly small form factor enables the reader to integrate into virtually any new or
existing installation.

Cognex In-Sight (Insight) 7000 Goes Color

Cognex has recently added four In-Sight 7000 color models to their product portfolio. The new color models not only complement the existing In-Sight 7000 series, but also provide a fast higher resolution (1.3MP) color camera for the In-Sight product family.
In-Sight color 7000 series
The four new color models include the In-Sight 7010, 7200, 7400 and the higher resolution 7402 color model. The In-Sight 7010 color is an entry-level color vision system that can distinguish parts by color using the Color ID tool. The system features 24-bit color resolution that accurately identifies 16 million color variations—more than the human eye can detect. In addition to the Color ID tool, the In-Sight 7010 Color also includes pattern finding and measurement tools. The In-Sight 7200C, 7400C, 7402C include the full suite of vision tools along with color tools for color identification, color blob analysis and color filtering. These systems solve more complex applications involving logic or color composition, as well as those requiring higher resolution or faster execution.
