DataMan 150 260 Series Fixed-mount Barcode Readers
High-speed reading of the most challenging 1-D and 2-D barcodes
DataMan 150 260 Series Features
For 1-D linear barcodes, higher-density 2-D matrix codes, or direct part mark (DPM) codes, the DataMan 150 260 series fixed-mount, image-based ID readers deliver unprecedented performance, flexibility and ease of use.
Achieve high read rates
DataMan 150 260 series fixed-mount barcode readers achieve the highest possible read rates thanks to a high-speed, dual core processing engine that runs the latest Cognex algorithms.
1DMax™ with Hotbars II™ and 2DMax® with patent-pending PowerGrid™ technology decode damaged or poorly printed 1-D and 2-D codes, despite code quality, printing method or surface that the codes are marked on, and can even read 2-D codes without visible perimeters or quiet zones.
Simplify Installation in tight spaces
DataMan 150 260 series models offer straight or right-angled configurations to fit into the tightest spaces. In-line and ninety degree configurations eliminate the need for equipment redesign, and complicated wiring or optical paths with mirrors.
Reduce installation time and cost of ownership
Modular lighting and optics make it easy to change DataMan 150 and 260 series reader lenses and lighting in the field. This not only reduces installation time and resources, but protects the ID reader investment by making it easy to optimize performance for each application and accommodate future process changes.
For example, if the surface finish of the part or the background material warrants a new light wavelength to optimize image formation, just change the on-board lighting instead of buying a new barcode reader. Likewise, if the reader must be moved further away from the code, just change from a standard 6.2 millimeter lens to a 16 millimeter S.H.D. lens. There is also an option to have autofocus capability by installing a liquid lens at both focal distances.
Easy to use tune and trigger buttons
The Tune and Trigger button allows for the setup of the application all without a PC or HMI. After mounting the reader, simply press the tune button. Whether the code is label based or a DPM code, the tuning algorithm trains the code and automatically adjusts the optics and lighting to deliver an image optimized for your application.
Once the reader has been tuned, the trigger button makes it easy to confirm that the reader has been set up properly. Audible beep or visual LED feedback makes it easy to know when the code is correctly read.
Perfect for DataMan 100/200 series retrofits
The DataMan 150 260 series readers utilize the same mounting configuration and pin out as the DataMan 100/200 series ID readers. This provides easy retrofits into existing DataMan 100/200 applications without adapter plates, or changes to mounting holes and wiring.
Because the standoff distance from the front of the reader to the code being read is exactly the same, the FOV achieved is the same and no changes to the machine layout, hardware or application are required.
