Company Overview

Cognex DataMan 503

With the highest read rates in the industry, performance feedback, and no moving parts, the DataMan 503 is suited for the most challenging barcode reading applications and will change the industry's perception of what can be accomplished with a barcode reader.

Made for challenging logistics applications
The DataMan 503 complements the existing line of DataMan logistics barcode readers and expands the number of applications where image-based readers can be used. It is particularly well-suited for applications that have high speeds, wide belt widths, or large variations in package height.

High read rates to increase throughput of the distribution center
DataMan 503 fixed-mount barcode readers achieve the highest possible read rates thanks to a high-speed, dual core processing engine that runs the latest Cognex algorithms at speeds up to 140 Hz. 1DMax with Hotbars II and 2DMax with patent-pending PowerGrid technology decode damaged or poorly printed 1-D and 2-D codes, despite code quality, printing method or surface that the codes are marked on, and can even read 2-D codes without visible perimeters or quiet zones.

Features

  • A high-speed advanced platform that runs the latest proprietary Cognex algorithms for decoding both 1-D and 2-D symbologies
  • 1DMax with Hotbars II provides high read rates on 1-D barcodes, even those that may be damaged or distorted
  • Hotbars II delivers "barcode stitching" technology and sub pixel resolution decoding to help you solve applications with fewer readers and less complexity
  • 2DMax with patent-pending PowerGrid technology decodes severely damaged or poorly marked 2-D matrix codes, and can even read 2-D codes without visible perimeters or quiet zones
  • 2DMax with PowerGrid overcomes variations in lighting, marking method, code quality, or surface finish - including damaged finder and clocking patterns and quiet zone violations
  • Intuitive Setup Tool for the simplest setup and deployment in real time
  • Intelligent tuning technology automatically adjusts the settings of the integrated lighting to find the optimal light setup for the part
  • Auto-tune and trigger buttons make the readers easy to set up without a PC or HMI
