Guest I need a bar code scanner for an assembly line that can read a bar code traveling at approx. 12 fps from a distance of 8-10in. Upon reading a bar code I need to the scanner to be able to trip a relay. (dry contact n.o. or n.c. does not matter) The solution that I am looking for would need to be in the $2,000-$3,000 range.

We carry several lines of high performance fixed scanners that are meant for automated applications where speed and accuracy are critical. The Cognex DataMan 200Q is an ideal candidate as it has very high read rates on 1D codes and also has 2 opto-isolated I/O for integrating with your other systems. We can help ensure that the Cognex unit will readily fit into your application.
