Manufacturing environments in automotive, medical device, electronics, aerospace, and other industries require rugged, high performing, and easy to use barcode reading technology to ensure top component traceability and productivity. The Cognex DataMan® 8700DX handheld barcode reader decodes the toughest direct part mark (DPM) and label-based codes while withstanding harsh oils, dirt, and water. A built-in display screen enables quick setup and operator feedback, and the reader supports a broad range of industrial protocols and communications to connect and operate efficiently in any facility.
In the past, oils and fluids surrounding the application site have quickly damaged barcode scanners, but the DataMan 8700DX is built to last in the harshest environments. It has IP67-rated housing and meets the ISO 16750-5 oil specification for oil resistance. It is submergible in one meter of water without causing damage and withstands 50 drops from 2.5 meters onto concrete.
DataMan 8700DX is equipped with the latest patented decoding algorithms, HDR technology, integrated lighting, high speed liquid lens, and a multi-core processor to read codes in under 150 milliseconds.
Integrated industrial protocols enable DataMan 8700DX to easily connect to PLCs and factory networks. The DataMan 8700DX supports more communication options than ever before including Wi-Fi 5GHz and 2.4 GHz, Bluetooth 4.2, and a corded option. It allows for a direct connection to computers, tablets, and phones.
