Cognex Launches DataMan 8700LX Handheld Barcode Reader

DCS Cognex Launches Data Man 8700LX Handheld Barcode Reader 1 400x275

November 30, 2022


Cognex Corporation, a leader in industrial machine vision, has introduced the DataMan® 8700LX, a high-performance handheld barcode reader for label-based codes.  

“The DataMan 8700LX puts industrial-grade label reading in the palm of your hand, with a rugged design that withstands the most demanding manufacturing environments,” said Matt Moschner, Cognex Vice President of ID Products and Platforms. “The system can be set up in minutes, streamlining deployment while improving part traceability and throughput.”  

Like all models in the DataMan 8700 family, the DataMan 8700LX is easy to use, oil and water resistant, and built to perform in harsh conditions. A built-in OLED display screen simplifies setup and gives operators quick and intuitive feedback without connecting to a PC. DataMan 8700 handheld readers support a broad range of industrial communication protocols, enabling them to operate efficiently in any facility.   

Other models in the DataMan 8700 family include the DataMan 8700DQ, designed for fast, accurate direct part mark (DPM) code reading, and the high-performance DataMan 8700DX with liquid lens for reading the toughest DPM and label-based codes.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
