New DataMan 8050 Handheld Barcode Readers Expand the Applications for DataMan

Cognex, the world’s leader in machine vision, has announced the release of its fastest and most economical industrial handheld readers yet, the DataMan 8050 Series. Designed with a ruggedized housing to handle harsh factory floor conditions and equipped with Cognex’s world-class barcode reading algorithms, the DataMan 8050 Series can read even challenging barcodes quickly and easily.

High-speed performance, even with the most challenging barcodes 

The patent-pending DataMan 8050 and 8050X are ideal for applications in many manufacturing environments, such as automotive, consumer electronics, aerospace and packaging. The DataMan 8050 and 8050X utilize Cognex’s patented 1DMax+ with Hotbars algorithms to provide high-speed reading performance even with damaged, low contrast or direct inkjet barcodes. Our industry-leading 2-D algorithms allow the 8050 to rapidly decode a variety of 2-D symbologies, including DataMatrix, QR, PDF417 and Aztec codes.

“The new DataMan 8050 and 8050X build on the success of our industry-leading DataMan 8500 handheld barcode reader, which has set the standard in industrial direct part mark [DPM] barcode reading,” said Carl Gerst, Vice President and Business Unit Manager, ID Products. “The new DataMan 8050 and 8050X bring reliable, high-speed barcode reading to the many other handheld barcode reading applications on the factory floor that use labels, direct inkjet or laser-marked codes. This new line expands our offerings in the industrial space.”
