DataMan 280 Features and Specifications

DataMan 280 series Barcode Readers

The DataMan 280 Series is a versatile and powerful barcode reader designed for use in a variety of environments. DataMan 280 Series readers are designed for item tracking and tracing in manufacturing and logistics facilities.
From hands-free code reading in a logistics warehouse to decoding direct part marks (DPM) in a manufacturing plant, DataMan 280 Series readers deliver the highest read rates to increase traceability and increase throughput.

  • High performance in a small footprint
  • Reading the most difficult codes
  • Out-of-the-box capabilities
  • Increased efficiency and communication

Solve tough manufacturing and logistics applications

The DataMan 280 Series of barcode readers are adaptable to practically any production or logistics scenario and can tackle a wide range of code-reading difficulties. The DataMan 280 series barcode scanners offer unrivaled read rates on 1D and 2D label-based codes and DPMs.

The reader's ability to decode complicated DPMs, label-based codes, and scan hands-free can help a variety of facilities enhance throughput, streamline operations, and achieve greater efficiency.

Advanced reading and imaging technology

DataMan 280 Series readers use patented decoding algorithms and imaging technologies to boost efficiency and throughput by maintaining high read rates in low-light conditions and with damaged codes.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology improves image clarity and contrast, allowing for more efficient code handling and coverage. High-speed Liquid Lens Technology (HSLL) dynamically autofocuses without the use of mechanical components, allowing the reader to easily tackle high-speed, high-variability applications.

Enhanced code reading with a single click

The high-powered integrated torch (HPIT) from Cognex allows operators to switch between red, white, blue, and green lighting options. This guarantees that users have the proper lighting for the job by delivering adequate contrast regardless of the operational environment. Multicolor illumination can also be used as a performance indicator, providing color-coded operator feedback in real time.

Real-time performance monitoring

The DataMan 280 Series readers, in conjunction with Cognex Edge Intelligence (EI), convert massive data into smart data, improving total equipment effectiveness and throughput. EI enables users to setup many devices at the same time, allowing for immediate system performance monitoring and analysis. The solution alerts users when problems arise, allowing operators to discover and resolve root causes more quickly by utilizing strong analytics and picture viewing tools.
