Introducing the most advanced generation of fixed mount image-based barcode readers: the fastest, most versatile and most flexible barcode readers in the world.


Highest performance

DataMan 360

High-speed, versatility, flexibility and ease of use

The DataMan 360 series delivers unprecedented functionality to increase throughput and drive down costs.

This next generation in the DataMan 300 series includes intelligent image buffering to provide performance feedback that is critical to fixing process issues and increased image storage. The DataMan 360 also offers a 360 degree visual read indicator and a Micro SD card for system-level backup and convenient unit restoration or replacement.

  • 1DMax with Hotbars II technology for high-speed reading of damaged or poorly printed 1-D barcodes
  • 2DMax® and patent-pending PowerGrid technology for reliable reading of challenging 2-D codes, including previously unreadable 2-D codes without visible perimeters
  • Field exchangeable lighting and optics that readily adapt to changing factory conditions and application requirements
  • Auto-tune and trigger buttons to set up and use the readers easily without a PC

Most flexible

DataMan 150/260

The highest possible read rates in the tightest spaces

For 1-D linear barcodes, higher-density 2-D matrix codes, or direct part mark (DPM) codes, the DataMan 150/260 delivers unprecedented performance, flexibility and ease of use. This reader is about the size of a matchbox and achieves the highest read rates thanks to a high-speed, powerful platform that runs the latest Cognex algorithms. Various resolutions, light colours and lens options including high speed auto-focus are available.

DataMan 150/260 offers 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.

  • A high-speed advanced platform that runs the latest proprietary Cognex algorithms for decoding both 1-D and 2-D symbologies
  • 1DMax with Hotbars II delivers 1-D code reading at extremely low resolution, down to 0.8 PPM (pixels per module), along with very high speed decoding, allowing for unprecedented 1-D code reading
  • 2DMax® with patent-pending PowerGrid technology overcomes variations in lighting, marking method, code quality, or surface finish — including damaged finder and clocking patterns and quiet zone violations
  • Intelligent tuning optimizes the image brightness, focus (when using a Liquid Lens) and trains the code, to make setup easy and deployment a snap
