Wireless DataMan 8000 ID scanner
Cognex has introduced a wireless version for its next-generation DataMan handheld industrial ID scanner, the DataMan 8000 series. The wireless communication module and base station with Cognex Connect capabilities is now available.
Cognex Connect provides flexibility for communicating via Industrial Protocols such as EtherNet/IP, Profinet, MC Protocol and others in addition to traditional support for USB and RS232. The DataMan 8000 series supports industrial protocols for both corded and cordless models, allowing for easy integration, reduced installation costs and remote access to diagnostics.
The wireless reader provides a long working range – up to 100m – with a large memory capacity for reading codes when offline or out of range. The base station comes standard with a spare battery charger built in and is compatible with industry standard Ethernet, USB and RS232 cables.
Common to all DataMan 8000 series models is the system’s unique modular design allowing any reader to change between corded RS232/USB communication to Industrial Ethernet or to wireless with field exchangeable interface modules.
The rugged DataMan 8000 series is designed for the factory floor and offers advanced code reading technology using two powerful algorithms, 1DMax and 2DMax. These technologies provide advanced decoding for reading virtually every type of code, regardless of size, quality, printing method or surface. The code reader also offers liquid lens variable focus technology which allows a user to read small 2D direct part marks (DPM) as well as long linear 1D barcodes with a single reader.
