Cognex, the leader in “machine vision” technology, produce DataMan handheld industrial ID readers that are great for DPM applications, where performance, ruggedness, and the ability to read challenging marks are crucial.

The DataMan 8500 readers incorporate Cognex’s patented UltraLight technology for superior image formation on any mark type and surface. The automatic 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.

UltraLight illumination provides dark field, bright field and diffuse lighting all in one electronically controlled light.

Rugged ergonomic design and modular communications support for RS-232/USB and Industrial Ethernet for the demanding factory floor environment.
