Cognex Corporation: Fixed-mount barcode reader

The DataMan® 500 fixed-mount barcode reader from Cognex is the first ID reader to be powered by a proprietary vision chip, called Cognex VSoC™.
FILED IN:  Machinery  > Inspection  > Code verification
VSoC is said to enable DataMan 500 to read barcodes at twice the speed of other readers, and does not  have to be positioned optimally to achieve high read rates.  Offers the same 1DMax™ and 2DMax™ code reading technology found in other DataMan products. VSoC technology enables DataMan 500 to offer speeds on 1-D barcode reading with up to 90 decodes/second and ultrafast image acquisition with auto-exposure, at up to 1,000 frames/second.  Provides flexible lens options and field interchangeable lighting.
