DataMan 150/260 Series Features
For 1-D linear barcodes, higher-density 2-D matrix codes, or direct part mark (DPM) codes, the DataMan 150/260 series fixed-mount, image-based ID readers deliver unprecedented performance, flexibility and ease of use.
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 II™ and 2DMax® with patent-pending PowerGrid™ technology decode damaged or poorly printed 1-D and 2-D codes, despite code quality, printing method or surface that the codes are marked on, and can even read 2-D 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 ID reader investment by making it easy to optimize performance for each application and accommodate future process changes.
For example, if the surface finish of the part or the background material warrants a new light wavelength to optimize image formation, just change the on-board lighting instead of buying a new barcode reader. Likewise, if the reader must be moved further away from the code, just change from a standard 6.2 millimeter lens to a 16 millimeter S.H.D. lens. There is also an option to have autofocus capability by installing a liquid lens at both focal distances.
