Cognex Dataman 300 Selected by Leading Warehouse Automation Company

Posted April 21, 2014

Cognex announced that it has received purchase orders totaling more than $3 million from a U.S. based designer of logistics automation systems. The customer will integrate Cognex DataMan(R) 300 barcode readers into numerous shipping and distribution centers for a major retailer.

The DataMan 300 with Hotbars image analysis technology offers reliable reading of 1-D barcodes that lasers cannot read, including damaged, distorted, blurred, scratched, low height and low contrast codes. It also reads codes presented in any orientation, multiple codes within the same image, and 2-D codes such as Data Matrix and QR codes. With no moving parts to wear out, the DataMan 300 also offers exceptional reliability, lower maintenance and longer product life. DataMan’s real-time performance feedback also provides customers with the ability to make immediate adjustments for process improvements.

“DataMan boosts productivity even in hand-sorting applications by eliminating scanning delays that are common to laser-based readers,” said Carl Gerst, Cognex Vice President and Business Unit Manager, ID Products. “Operators are able to scan packages in one pass without altering their natural motion patterns or having to ‘fish’ for reads by waving the product repeatedly under the unit.”
