Cognex is the world leader of image-based ID readers and is the only company that can support all of your 1D barcode and 2D code reading requirements. Cognex DataMan® ID readers can read 1D code symbologies such as UPC, PDF and postal codes, 2D code symbologies such as Data Matrix and QR, or a mix of barcode and 2D codes simultaneously.
1D Barcode Reading
Cognex DataMan ID readers provide the best overall read rates for 1D barcodes —handling extreme variations of code degradation with 1DMax® technology. They can also read codes omnidirectionally and can read multiple codes simultaneously. With better read rates and no moving parts image-based ID readers are increasingly replacing laser scanners on the factory floor.
2D Code Reading
From easy to read 2D codes on labels to Direct Part Marks (DPM) on chips, plastic, ceramics or metal, to high density codes on glass—DataMan ID readers provide the most robust reading reliability for all industries with 2DMax™ patented reading algorithm and UltraLight® illumination technologies. These technologies have enabled direct marked 2D codes to be applied to a wide range of products that previously were difficult to identify and track through their manufacturing and usage lifecycle.
