Cimtec Automation is now offering the newly released Cognex DataMan 8000 wireless handheld barcode reader. These units have unrivaled code reading performance, superior reading versatility, and modular communication options. In the wireless communication model, the intelligent base station can communicate back to your industrial controls via Ethernet, USB, or serial.  The base station also now offers a spare battery charging component.

Cognex DataMan 8000 readers set the new performance standard when it comes to industrial code reading. These industry-leading readers introduce several firsts to industrial handheld scanner capabilities, including:

Liquid Lens Variable Focus Technology
The DataMan 8000 handheld series reader is the first industrial handheld reader to utilize integrated liquid lens technology. The adjustable focus of the liquid lens gives a maximum depth of field flexibility for an image-based handheld reader. This industrially proven technology enables a single reader to decode DPM marks close up, or large barcodes from a distance. Relative to other autofocus mechanisms, the liquid lens has extremely fast response times and is exceptionally durable with no moving parts.

Superior Code Reading
The DataMan 8000 series units are powered by Cognex patented algorithms, 1DMax and 2DMax, that provide advanced decoding for reading virtually every type of code, every time, with unsurpassed read rates. For 1-D barcodes, 1DMax is their best-in-class reading tool optimized for omnidirectional barcode reading that can handle extreme variations. For 2-D codes, 2DMax technology sets the industry standard for the most challenging Data Matrix DPM applications.

Industrial Ethernet
The DataMan 8000 series readers are the first to offer Industrial Ethernet communication capability in a handheld reader. Now, handheld readers can be integrated directly into the factory network for real-time product traceability with the Cognex Connect™ suite of industrial protocols including EtherNet/IP, PROFINET, MC Protocol and
more. DataMan 8000 corded readers have a direct Ethernet connection while the cordless readers have Ethernet connectivity from the base station to the host.

Modular Communications
The DataMan 8000 series is also the first to introduce interchangeable communication modules for RS-232/USB, Ethernet and wireless connectivity. This flexibility means that one standard reader can be deployed with a variety of possibilities so that initial reader installation can be modified to meet future requirements.

The DataMan 8000 series is available in two models. Each model can be corded or cordless, with patented 1DMax and 2DMax algorithms, liquid lens technology and modular communication capabilities.

  • DataMan 8500. The DataMan 8500 readers incorporate patented UltraLight® technology from Cognex for superior image formation on any DPM type and surface.
  • DataMan 8100. These readers feature integrated bright field illumination ideal for applications that require superior code reading performance for well-printed 1-D and 2-D codes and well-marked DPM codes.
