Manufacturing environments in automotive, medical device, electronics, aerospace, and product security industries require rugged, high performing, and easy to use barcode reading technology to ensure top component traceability and productivity. DataMan 8700 series handheld barcode readers decode the toughest direct part mark (DPM) and label-based codes while withstanding harsh oils, dirt, and water. A built-in display screen enables quick setup and operator feedback, and the readers support a broad range of industrial protocols and communications to connect and operate efficiently in any facility.
DataMan 8700 is equipped with the latest patented decoding algorithms, HDR technology, high speed liquid lens, and a multi-core processor to read codes in under 150 milliseconds.
Decode large and small 1D label-based and 2D direct part mark (DPM) codes on any surface and from any angle.
Read challenging 2D DPM codes for engine, transmission, and final assembly, as well as kitting applications. This includes laser-etched and dot peen codes on round, shiny, and textured surfaces.
Read challenging 2D codes on PCB boards, even codes occluded by chips on the board.
- Medical device
Decode small laser-etched codes on shiny and cylindrical surfaces like those found on medical instruments and artificial implants such as a replacement hip or knee.
Robust oil and water resistant housing
In the past, oils and fluids surrounding an application site have quickly damaged barcode scanners, but the DataMan 8700 barcode reader is built to last in the harshest environments. It has IP67-rated housing and meets the ISO 16750-5 oil specification for oil resistance. It is submergible in one meter of water without causing damage and withstands multiple drops from 2.5 meters onto concrete.
Premium read performance in milliseconds
The DataMan 8700DX model is equipped with the latest patented decoding algorithms, HDR technology, high speed liquid lens, and a multi-core processor to read codes in under 150 milliseconds. Integrated diffuse, polarized, and direct lighting enables superior image formation to read dot peen, laser-etched, and label-based codes on challenging (shiny, cylindrical, dark) surfaces without any hot spots.
OLED display screen makes setup easy
DataMan 8700 series provides a first-of-its-kind OLED display screen to make setup easy and to give operators quick and intuitive feedback without connecting to a PC.
- Setup the reader using the configurator buttons below the screen
- Name the reader to know which station it belongs to
- View the wireless signal strength to ensure the reader is within range
- Monitor battery life so the reader doesn’t power down mid-shift
- Review code data to ensure a successful read
