DataMan 8050 series readers are equipped with Cognex’s world-class barcode reading algorithms and designed to withstand harsh factory floor conditions. The best in class algorithms decode even challenging barcodes quickly and easily including Direct Part Mark (DPM) codes. And, the flexible modular design ensures the DataMan 8050 series readers are ready to meet ever changing communication needs.

Modular Communications for Maximum Flexibility

The DataMan 8050 series of industrial barcode readers feature field interchangeable communication modules and enable one reader to be configured to meet specific communication needs.

Rugged Industrial Design

The DataMan 8050 series barcode readers are constructed to handle the harshest environments. Industrial features include: lanyard hook for easy retractor mounting, bright centralized aimer for clear targeting, loud beeper and indicator lights provide operator feedback.

DataMan 8050 Series Software & Barcode Reading Technology

DataMan software includes several features for the DataMan handheld barcode readers that far surpass other readers on the market.

Featured capabilities include:

  • Market-leading barcode reading technologies for decoding both 1-D and 2-D symbologies
  • Intuitive Setup Tool for the simplest setup and deployment

Proprietary Cognex software algorithms give the DataMan barcode readers unmatched code reading performance:

  • 1DMax+ code reading algorithm with the patent-pending Hotbars image-analysis technology provides higher read rates of 1-D linear barcodes, even those with damage, at a faster pace than ever before.
  • 2DMax+ for decoding severely damaged or poorly marked 2-D matrix codes. Overcomes variations in lighting, marking method, code quality, or surface finish.

Cognex Proprietary Technologies
Cognex offers the most advanced technology available for 1-D barcode and for 2-D Data Matrix code reading. Regardless of the barcode symbology, size, quality, printing method, or surface the codes are marked on, we can read it!

  1-D Barcode Reading

Cognex DataMan® barcode readers provide the highest read rates for 1-D barcodes handling extreme variations of code degradation with 1DMax software algorithm and the patent pending Hotbars image analysis technology. Read barcodes omnidirectionally and multiple codes simultaneously.

2-D Code Reading

From easy to read 2-D codes on labels to challenging Direct Part Marks (DPM) on chips, plastic, ceramics, glass, or metal, DataMan barcode readers provide the most robust reading reliability for all industries with the patented 2DMax reading algorithm. Even overcome challenges such as poor marking quality or damaged clocking patterns on codes.
