For 1D linear barcodes, higher-density 2D matrix codes, or direct mark (DPM) codes, the DataMan 150/260 series fixed-mount, image-based barcodes readers deliver unprecedented performance, flexibility, and ease-of-use. DataMan 150/260 series models offer straight or right-angled configurations to fit into the tightest spaces. In-line and ninety degree configurations eliminate the need for equipment redesign, and complicated wiring or optical paths with mirrors.
Cognex Dataman 150/260 Series Fixed-Mount Barcode Readers
Achieve high read rates: DataMan 150/260 series fixed-mount barcode readers achieve the highest possible read rates thanks to a high-speed, dual core processing engine that runs the latest Cognex algorithms. 1DMax with Hotbars and 2DMax with PowerGrid technology decodes damaged or poorly printed 1D and 2D codes, despite code quality, printing method or surface that the codes are marked on and can even read 2D codes without visible perimeters or quiet zones.
Simplify installation in tight spaces: DataMan 150/260 series models offer straight or right-angled configurations to fit into the tightest spaces. In-line and ninety-degree configurations eliminate the need for equipment redesign, and complicated wiring or optical paths with mirrors.
Reduce installation time and cost of ownership: Modular lighting and optics make it easy to change DataMan 150 and 260 series reader lenses and lighting in the field. This not only reduces installation time and resources but protects the barcode reader investment by making it easy to optimise performance for each application and accommodate future process changes.
Perfect for DataMan 100/200 series retrofits: The DataMan 150/260 series readers utilise the same mounting configuration and pin out as the DataMan 100/200 series ID readers. This provides easy retrofit into existing DataMan 100/200 applications without adapter plates, or changes to mounting holes and wiring. Because the standoff distance from the front of the reader to the code being read is exactly the same, the FOV achieved is the same and no changes to the machine layout, hardware, or application are required.
1DMax with Hotbars II: 1DMax code reading algorithm with Hotbars II image-analysis technology provides higher read rates of 1D linear barcodes, even those with damage, at a faster pace than ever before.
2DMax and PowerGrid: 2DMax and patent-pending PowerGrid for decoding severely damaged or poorly marked 2D matrix codes. Overcomes variations in lighting, marking method, code quality, or surface finish.
- Ultra-high definition
- Brackets and cables
The DataMan 150/260 fixed-mount barcode readers can be used for multiple 1D and 2D applications in factory automation. Read multiple codes and mixed codes (1D & 2D) simultaneously.
Several common barcode reading applications include:
- 1D- Read 1D barcodes on products that are stopped, slow moving, or presented by hand to the barcode reader.
- 1D- Read fast moving 1D barcodes, including those on ultra-fast beverage or food production lines.
- 2D- Read challenging direct part marked (DPM) codes on virtually any surface (glass, metal, ceramic, plastic).
- 2D- Read moving or printed 2D codes on labels.
