ESD—the sudden flow of static electricity between two objects—can damage electronic devices, spark explosions or fires in flammable environments and cause data failures. Cognex ESD-Safe Barcode Readers combine ESD-safe plastics for all enclosure parts with an antistatic coating for all optical parts to prevent costly damage to components.

DataMan fixed-mount barcode readers also offer industry-leading read rates with patented 1-D and 2-D code reading algorithms to read the most challenging and degraded codes. DataMan 8050HD/HDX corded handheld readers are designed to reliably decode challenging 2-D direct part mark (DPM) codes as well as 1-D barcodes. The rugged ESD protective housing ensures ESD safety in even the harshest industrial environments.
