Cognex DataMan 360 Series Barcode Reader
DataMan 360 is the most powerful and versatile reader offering modular lighting and optics.
When high-performance, flexibility and ease of use are essential for your barcode reading application, the DataMan 360 series delivers. The DataMan 360 series reads a wide range of 1-D linear and 2-D matrix symbologies. Powerful ImageMax technology with a high powered liquid lens and a high-powered illumination enhances image formation and maximizes read rates for even the most challenging dot-peen or laser marked DPM codes.
Advanced algorithms for reliable 1-D and 2-D code reading
1DMax® is a 1-D barcode reading algorithm optimized for omnidirectional barcode reading. Hotbars II technology locates, extracts and decodes low-resolution 1-D barcodes quickly and accurately. Combining these two powerful technologies offers extraordinary read rates at very high speeds.
2DMax provides reliable 2-D code reading despite code quality, printing method or the surface that the codes are marked on. Patent pending PowerGrid technology locates and reads 2-D codes that exhibit significant damage to or complete elimination of the finder pattern, clocking pattern, or quiet zone. These combined technologies provide increased read rates and decoding robustness for the most difficult and degraded codes.
Optimal image formation of any code in any environment
ImageMax technology is specifically designed to read challenging DPM codes on a variety of round, reflective or specular surfaces using a combination of cross polarized and co-linear polarized LEDs and a high powered lens with liquid lens technology.
ImageMax technology auto-focuses to read small codes at variable working distances and provides even illumination to reliably read hard to read DPM codes. The one-piece, ESD-safe metal housing simplifies installation and prevents equipment damage.
The intelligent tuning feature automatically selects the optimum settings for the integrated lighting, autofocus and imager for each application. This tuning process ensures that the barcode reader will be set up to attain the highest read rates possible for 1-D, 2-D, and direct part marked (DPM) codes. The liquid lens can also be adjusted with software or serial commands without having to touch the reader, and refocus within milliseconds with no moving parts involved.
DataMan barcode reader quick setup app
This convenient web-based app allows you to remotely set up and configure your networked fixed-mount barcode readers on your phone or mobile device. Available from Google Play or iTunes App Store, this app allows you to see images in real-time, adjust and share configuration settings among multiple readers, save and send images, and much more. You can even troubleshoot issues and check read rates anywhere on your factory or distribution center floor without using a PC.
