Handheld Barcode Readers
Product Code : 06
Brand Name : COGNEX SENSORS
DataMan 8500 Series
The rugged DataMan 8500 series of readers offers the industry most advanced technology for reading 1-D and 2-D codes regardless of size, quality, printing method or surface, and is the only industrial handheld barcode reader that offers Industrial Ethernet communication and liquid lens technology.
Superior Code Reading Performance for Optimum Read Rates
The DataMan 8500 series of handheld industrial ID readers features two powerful patented algorithms, 1DMaxTM and 2DMaxTM technology, to decode virtually every type of code, every time, with unsurpassed read rates.
For 1-D barcodes, the 1DMax algorithm is our best-in-class reading tool optimized for omnidirectional barcode reading that can handle extreme variations.
For 2-D codes, 2DMax technology is best-in-class for decoding 2-D matrix symbologies as adopted in many industries for direct part marking (DPM) as well as for high speed printed applications.
Liquid Lens Variable Focus Technology for all Applications
The DataMan 8000 series is the first to offer integrated liquid lens technology in an industrial handheld ID reader. The adjustable focus of the liquid lens gives maximum depth of field flexibility enabling you to use the system close up for very small 2-D direct part marks as well as at a greater distance to read longer 1-D barcodes, with extremely fast response times.
Industrial Ethernet and Modular Communications for Maximum Flexibility
The DataMan 8500 series of industrial ID readers is also the first handheld reader to offer Ethernet communication with Cognex ConnectTM capability for easy integration into your factory network for real-time product and part traceability.
Cognex Connect provides the most flexibility for communicating via Industrial Protocols such as EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, MC Protocol, Modbus TCP and more in addition to traditional support for USB and RS-232.
Another first for the DataMan 8500 series is the modularity of the communication. The DataMan 8500 series field interchangeable communication modules enable the additional benefit of standardization on one reader platform in corded or cordless models.
