Cognex has introduced new lighting and optics features for its DataMan 300 series of industrial barcode readers. Customers can now configure DataMan 300 easily for multiple applications by simply changing the lighting or optics.

The DataMan 300 features modular lighting that can be configured and replaced in the field. The eight integrated light banks and external lights can be individually controlled.

Lighting options include: infrared for challenging metal parts and operator eye comfort; polarised red for reflective parts or parts under plastic; blue for metal parts or barcodes printed in colour; high-intensity red for general purpose applications; Cognex’s custom high-powered illumination accessory (HPIA) for long-range barcode reading applications; and several external lights powered directly from the reader, including the ring, backlight, spotlight, low angle ring, and DOAL.

The DataMan 300 lens mount supports all popular lens styles without any additional hardware. The DataMan 300 intelligent tuning feature runs an automatic calibration routine that determines which combination of lights and focal distance on the liquid lens will provide the best results for each application.

The DataMan 300 series includes three models: DataMan 300 with a standard resolution of 800 x 600 pixels, the DataMan 302 with a higher resolution of 1,280 x 1,024 pixels, and the DataMan 303 with the highest resolution of 1,600 x 1,200 pixels.
