CIMTEC’s partnership with Cognex has been long standing, and here is one more reason why. The newest addition to their barcode scanner line-up is the DataMan 374, a fixed-mount barcode reader that solves challenging direct part mark (DPM) and label-based code applications. With twice the computing power of conventional readers in its class, the DataMan 374 delivers faster decode speeds for greater throughput per facility, even when applications have multiple codes and symbologies.
The Dataman 374 will prove to be your best asset for longer distance scanning and reading codes that are at extreme angles. It’s flexible, easy to use, and powerful. Here are the features you will find in the newest scanner from Cognex:
- Lighting Fast Performance Across Mulitiple Focal Planes
DataMan 374 barcode readers are optimized with the latest decoding algorithms, including new 1D/2D Auto-Discrimination, to ensure fast and superior read rate performance for 1D and 2D codes. DataMan 374’s multi-core processor enables it to run these algorithms and processes in parallel, resulting in two times the performance and power of comparable high-performance readers.
- Reduce Set-up Time with Field of View Laser Aimer
DataMan 374 uses High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging technology to acquire single images that are 16 times more detailed than conventional sensors. Mulit-colored LEDs flash to indicate good reads while globally enhancing image quality and contrast, resulting in greater depth-of-field and improved handling of low contrast codes. The distance based autofocus provides optimal image formation while it reads codes at extreme angles with powerful Cognex 1D & 2D algorithms.
- Modularity Provides Unparalleled Flexibility
DataMan 374’s proven modular design shares the same lighting, lens, and communication options as other DataMan readers, providing maximum flexibility and ease-of-use. New high-powered integrated torch (HPIT) option provides unmatched illumination power, eliminating the need for external lighting.
- Easy Set-up with Intuitive User Interface
DataMan Setup Tool software simplifies installation and operation of Cognex barcode readers. It captures images in real time for user review and tracks read result history. Intelligent auto-tuning and application assistants guide the user to quickly optimize complex parameters with ease. The Setup Tool also provides process control metrics and performance feedback.
