DataMan ID readers

Barcode readers of Cognex

Cognex offers the most advanced technology available for 1-D barcode and for 2-D Data Matrix code reading.

Regardless of the barcode symbology, size, quality, printing method, or surface the codes are marked on, we can read it!

1-D barcode reading

Cognex DataMan barcode readersCognex DataMan barcode readers provide the highest read rates on 1-D barcodes and manage even large variations in code quality with proprietary 1DMax+ code reading algorithm with the patent-pending Hotbars image-analysis technology. They read also omnidirectional codes and even several at a time.


2-D code reading

Direct Part Marks (DPM)From easy to read 2D codes on labels to Direct Part Marks (DPM) on chips, plastic, ceramics, metal or glass -
with the proprietary 2DMax+™ code reading algorithm DataMan barcode readers guarantee a high reliability for all sectors. The barcode readers can even handle the highest demands like poor marking quality or damaged clocking patterns of the codes.
