For 1D linear barcodes, higher-density 2D maxtix codes, or direct part marking (DPM) codes, the DataMan 150/260 series of fixed-mount, image-based barcode readers deliver unprecedented performance, flexibility and ease-of-use.


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 and 2DMax with PowerGrid technology decode damaged or poorly printed 1D and 2D codes, despite code quality, printing method, or surface and can even read 2D codes without visible perimeters or quiet zones.


Simplify installation in tight spaces.  DataMan 150/260 series offer straight or right-angled configurations to fit into the tightest of spaces.  


QL Models:  Best-in-Class 1D barcode reading with 1DMax and Hotbars that is optimized for omnidirectional barcode reading.


S Models:  For slow-moving parts or index motion where parts have well-marked 1D/2D codes.


Q Models:  High-performance code reading of 1D/2D codes on fast-moving parts.  Include 1DMax and 1D Quick algorithms, 2DMax available in some models.


X Models:  High-performance code reading of challenging 1D and 2D codes, including DPM codes.  Some X models also include PoweGrid technology.
