DataMan 500

The high performance, fixed-mount barcode reader, DataMan 500 from Cognex, is now available for factory automation applications. The ID reader is powered by a proprietary vision chip, called Cognex VSoC, which provides excellent barcode reading performance.

DataMan 500 offers the powerful 1DMax and 2DMax code reading technology found in other DataMan products for reading even the most difficult 1D barcodes and 2D matrix codes. VSoC technology enables high read speeds of 1D barcodes, with up to 90 decodes per second and ultrafast image acquisition with auto-exposure, at up to 1,000fps.

To achieve greater depth of field, the ID reader provides flexible lens options and field interchangeable lighting. Lens options include a choice of C-mount or variable focus liquid lens, and lighting options include integrated LED lighting and a high-powered illumination accessory for high-performance reading.

DataMan 500 also supports Cognex Connect communication capabilities, which includes EtherNet/IP and Profinet. The reader can be accessed from any terminal connected to the network, which means that no host PC is required to translate data to a PLC or central network. The protocols also allow for data files and images to be archived directly through FTP support for later review and analysis.

The DataMan 500 is available in two versions: DataMan 500 QL for high-speed, 1D applications in food, beverage, consumer products, pharmaceutical, document handling, and logistics applications; and DataMan 500 X, which includes all the benefits of the DataMan QL reader plus 2DMax to read challenging matrix codes in automotive, aerospace, electronics, and medical device industries.
