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 DataMan 300 & 302 Achieves Higher Read Rates

The new DataMan 300 series barcode readers from Cognex allow you to take a quantum leap in reading performance. Become more efficient and achieve higher read rates with the DataMan 300 and 302 unit.Dataman 300

The new DataMan 300 series of readers was developed to handle the difficult-to-read DPM (Direct Part Mark) codes as well as provide high read rates for challenging 1-D barcodes and 2-D Data Matrix codes.

  • 1DMax+™ with Hotbars™ technology provides higher read rates of damaged 1-D linear barcodes at a faster pace than ever before.

  • Controllable, field interchangeable lighting modules allow you to create the best possible lighting for your part, ensuring the highest read rates.

  • Intelligent tuning automatically adjusts the settings of the integrated lighting to find the optimal light setup for the part.

Additional Features and Benefits:

  • Enhanced 1DMax+ and 2DMax+ code-reading algorithms for reading the most challenging 1-D and 2-D codes

  • Flexible lens options C-Mount lens, S-Mount or a variable focus liquid lens to provide maximum depth of field flexibility? One reader does it all!

  • Cognex Connect communications suite supports industrial protocols as well as RS-232 connectivity for integration into legacy systems.

DataMan 300 series is available in two base models:

DataMan 300 : 800 x 600 pixels
DataMan 302 : 1280 x 1024 pixels

And with two algorithm options:

'L' for 1-D codes and 'X' for 1-D and 2-D codes.

So the four complete models are: DataMan 300L (DMR-300L-00), 300X (DMR-300X-00), 302L (DMR-302L-00), and 302X (DMR-302X-00).

The DataMan 302 is ideal for reading for reading very small DPM codes in a large field of view or on small components. Click here for more information on the fixed mount ID readers!

Cognex DataMan 8000 Series Wireless Handheld Scanner Released

Cimtec Automation is now offering the newly released Cognex DataMan 8000 wireless handheld barcode reader. These units have unrivaled code reading performance, superior reading versatility, and modular communication options. In the wireless communication model, the intelligent base station can communicate back to your industrial controls via Ethernet, USB, or serial.  The base station also now offers a spare battery charging component.

Cognex DataMan 8000 readers set the new performance standard when it comes to industrial code reading. These industry-leading readers introduce several firsts to industrial handheld scanner capabilities, including:

Liquid Lens Variable Focus Technology
The DataMan 8000 handheld series reader is the first industrial handheld reader to utilize integrated liquid lens technology. The adjustable focus of the liquid lens gives a maximum depth of field flexibility for an image-based handheld reader. This industrially proven technology enables a single reader to decode DPM marks close up, or large barcodes from a distance. Relative to other autofocus mechanisms, the liquid lens has extremely fast response times and is exceptionally durable with no moving parts.

Superior Code Reading
The DataMan 8000 series units are powered by Cognex patented algorithms, 1DMax and 2DMax, that provide advanced decoding for reading virtually every type of code, every time, with unsurpassed read rates. For 1-D barcodes, 1DMax is their best-in-class reading tool optimized for omnidirectional barcode reading that can handle extreme variations. For 2-D codes, 2DMax technology sets the industry standard for the most challenging Data Matrix DPM applications.

Industrial Ethernet
The DataMan 8000 series readers are the first to offer Industrial Ethernet communication capability in a handheld reader. Now, handheld readers can be integrated directly into the factory network for real-time product traceability with the Cognex Connect™ suite of industrial protocols including EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, MC Protocol and
more. DataMan 8000 corded readers have a direct Ethernet connection while the cordless readers have Ethernet connectivity from the base station to the host.

Modular Communications
The DataMan 8000 series is also the first to introduce interchangeable communication modules for RS-232/USB, Ethernet and wireless connectivity. This flexibility means that one standard reader can be deployed with a variety of possibilities so that initial reader installation can be modified to meet future requirements.

The DataMan 8000 series is available in two models. Each model can be corded or cordless, with patented 1DMax and 2DMax algorithms, liquid lens technology and modular communication capabilities.

  • DataMan 8500. The DataMan 8500 readers incorporate patented UltraLight® technology from Cognex for superior image formation on any DPM type and surface.

  • DataMan 8100. These readers feature integrated bright field illumination ideal for applications that require superior code reading performance for well-printed 1-D and 2-D codes and well-marked DPM codes.

The adjustable focus of the liquid lens gives maximum depth of field flexibility enabling you to use the system close up for very small 2D direct part marks as well as at a greater distance to read longer 1D barcodes, with extremely fast response times.

2. Innovative Modular Connectivity for Real-Time Part Traceability

The DataMan 8000 Series of ID readers is also the first handheld reader to offer Ethernet communication capability for easy integration into your factory network for real-time product and part traceability.

Upgrade from RS-232/USB to Industrial Ethernet with field exchangeable interface modules to modify your initial installation when your communication requirements change.

3. Advanced Code Reading Performance for Optimum Read Rates

And, of course, the DataMan 8000 Series of handheld industrial ID readers features proven patented IDMax technology and two powerful algorithms, 1DMax™ and 2DMax™, to decode virtually every type of code, every time, with unsurpassed read rates.
1DMax TechnologyFor 1D barcodes, the 1DMax™ algorithm is our best-in-class reading tool optimized for omnidirectional barcode reading that can handle extreme variations.

2DMax TechnologyFor 2D codes, 2DMax™ technology pioneered the adoption of 2D Data Matrix coding in many industries for direct part marking and high speed printed applications.
