DataMan 300 fixed 1D bar code reader

Dual technology improves read rates

For fixed 1D bar code reading in high-speed tote scanning and print-and-apply verification, and carton code applications, the Cognex DataMan 300 uses the 1DMax+ algorithm paired with Hotbars technology.

Hotbars uses texture to locate bar codes at any orientation, and then extracts high-resolution 1D signals for decoding. Together, the technologies dramatically increase the decoding speed of damaged or poorly presented bar codes.

Camera-based, the readers produce higher read rates that reduce costs while increasing throughput, and lower equipment costs because the imagers have no moving parts. For continuous process improvement, the reader provides visualization to access data.
