Cutting-Edge Technologies for Enhanced Performance

The DataMan 280 series barcode reader readers incorporate advanced technologies such as High-Speed Liquid Lens (HSLL) dynamic autofocus and High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging to further enhance their performance. These advanced features ensure optimal efficiency and productivity by enabling rapid and accurate barcode decoding, even in the most challenging conditions.

Dynamic autofocus with high-sped liquid lens (HSLL)

HSLL technology revolutionizes dynamic autofocus, designed to meet high-speed and high-variability applications with fewer cameras and in a shorter timeframe. Its fast autofocus capabilities make it the ideal solution for high-speed applications, eliminating the need for multiple cameras.

Fixed-mount barcode readers in the DataMan 280 series use High-Speed Liquid Lens technology. This technology provides dynamic autofocus without mechanical parts, ensuring quick decoding, simple setup, and adaptability to changes in working distance. 

This innovative technology translates to reduced camera requirements, faster decoding, and the ability to adapt to changes in working distances, maximizing the efficiency of your code reading operations.
