The DataMan 200 ID reader from Cognex combines the powerful reading performance and small size of the DataMan 100 with engineering innovations that improve connectivity, speed, and ease of use. The image-based reader features full Ethernet connectivity in a package the size of a matchbox. This enables real-time data and image transfer and easier integration with plant controller and information networks. An optional liquid lens technology feature provides greater focal range, ease of setup, and faster response time by adjusting the camera’s focus via application of an electrical charge to fluid within the lens. Two laser aimers simplify setup by allowing laser targets to be viewed through the entire depth of field so operators can quickly position the code to the reader.
