Cognex Launches DataMan 380 to Increase Throughput for Logistics and Manufacturing

Versatile new barcode reader of DataMan 380 uses AI and wide-area scanning to speed up production lines

Cognex Corporation, a world leader in industrial machine vision, has introduced the DataMan® 380 fixed-mount barcode reader, which uses advanced optics and integrated AI to accelerate throughput across logistics and manufacturing applications.

The DataMan 380 is a versatile image-based barcode reader that uses a high-resolution imager to capture more codes in a single image for maximum traceability. This wide field of view simplifies deployment and operations, with one DataMan 380 outperforming an array of conventional readers.

During complex logistics processes, facilities are sometimes forced to compromise line speed for barcode reading accuracy. The DataMan 380 eliminates that tradeoff, thanks to decoding algorithms that use artificial intelligence to accelerate throughput by quickly locating and differentiating mixed symbologies.

“The DataMan 380 maximizes two critical aspects of barcode operations – throughput and read rates,” said Carl Gerst, Executive Vice President of Vision and ID Products. “Using AI to streamline 1D and 2D barcode reading enables faster lines and smaller gaps, so customers can get more products through their lines without missing a code.”

Broad scanning coverage and robust decoding make the DataMan 380 ideal for a wide range of logistics and manufacturing operations, such as reading codes during robotic pick-and-place applications, scanning packages on pallets, and reading barcodes on tires.
