DataMan 280 Series Features
Solve tough manufacturing and logistics applications
DataMan 280 series was designed to be flexible. The modular hardware and software can be configured to solve any barcode reading challenge. Easily decode difficult DPM codes on challenging automotive and medical device surfaces. Read multiple label-based barcodes simultaneously on boxes and pallets, even behind specular wraps. And accurately read user presented codes with a large depth of focus for speedy handling.
Latest Cognex technology improves code handling and coverage
The latest patented decoding algorithms and technology read low resolution and damaged codes at high speeds, including QR codes. High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology enhances image quality and contrast to improve code handling and enable greater coverage for better efficiency. High-Speed Liquid Lens (HSLL) technology dynamically autofocuses without any mechanical parts to solve high-speed, high-variability applications with fewer cameras in less time.
Advanced features enable easy setup and performance monitoring
DataMan 280 combined with Cognex Edge Intelligence (EI) provides advanced Industry 4.0 features like easy web browser connectivity, device management, and performance monitoring. It allows users to configure multiple devices at once and begin trending important system performance metrics in minutes. Facility managers can identify trends and intervene quickly when dips in performance are spotted.
