DataMan 500 Series Features and Specifications

Cognex Dataman 500 Series barcode readers

The DataMan 500 Series is the first ID reader to use a proprietary vision chip dubbed the Cognex VSoCTM. The DataMan 500's VSoC allows unrivaled barcode reading performance and ease-of-use not found in other image-based or laser systems on the market today.

  • Accurate and reliable reading of complex barcodes
  • Fast barcode processing for high productivity
  • Intuitive and efficient use of the barcode reader

Interchangeable lens and light options

The DataMan 500 Series offers flexible lens and interchangeable lighting options to achieve greater depth of field than other imaging-based barcode scanners.

This allows the barcode reader to be accessed from any network-connected terminal, without requiring a host PC for data translation to a central PLC or network. The protocols also allow direct archiving of data files and images via FTP support for later review and analysis.

Advanced network performance

With extensive connectivity, the DataMan 500 Series delivers advanced network performance, enabling seamless integration into industrial systems and networks. This simplifies data and image management, as well as integrating the barcode reader into industrial applications.
