Fixed-mount Barcode Readers

DataMan 470 Series

Premium fixed-mount barcode reader for the most challenging applications

DataMan 470 Series Technologies

DataMan 470’s innovative technology delivers maximum coverage, speed, and ease-of-use.

Advanced Image Formation

High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging uses the latest CMOS image sensor technology which is 16 times more detailed than conventional sensors. HDR takes advantage of the extra available image data to globally enhance image quality and contrast.

HDR+ is an advanced algorithm that stretches the boundaries of HDR technology by further increasing localized contrast changes automatically. This creates a more uniformed image in a single acquisition allowing greater depth-of-field, faster line speeds, and improved handling of difficult codes.

HDR+ technology enables DataMan 470 to read an increased range of codes than is possible with conventional or other HDR technologies.

Patented Decoding Algorithms

DataMan 470 series is optimized with patented algorithms to ensure continuously high read rates of 1D and 2D symbologies, regardless of size, quality, printing method, or surface.

  • 1DMax is an advanced 1D barcode algorithm optimized for omnidirectional barcode reading and extreme variations in contrast, blur, damage, resolution, quiet zone violations, and perspective distortion.
  • Hotbars technology locates and extracts 1D barcodes up to 10x faster than a typical reader, even with increased noise, large specular reflection, reduced quiet zone, limited contrast, and damage.
  • 2DMax is a breakthrough 2D barcode reading algorithm that provides reliable 2D code reading despite code quality, printing method, or surface type.
  • PowerGrid technology quickly locates 2D codes that exhibit significant damage to or complete elimination of a code’s finder pattern, clocking pattern, or quiet zone.

High-Resolution Sensor

DataMan 470’s high-resolution sensor enables greater field-of-view and depth-of-field coverage than other readers. It reads large and small codes form various angles, including high density 2D DPM codes.

DataMan 470's higher resolution provides expanded field-of-view capabilities to read multiple codes and mixed symbologies with ease.

Liquid Lens Technology

DataMan 470 is equipped with liquid lens (autofocus) technology to allow the reader to adapt to changes in working distances for greater depth-of-field range. Unlike traditional zoom lenses, liquid lenses do not have any moving parts that can wear out or fail.

Multi-Reader Sync

A multi-reader sync option is available to allow multiple DataMan 470 readers to synchronize for extended field-of-view or for multi-side scanning. The parent reader collects data from the child readers and communicates the overall result to the control system.

Performance Feedback

Cognex Explorer Real Time Monitoring (RTM) technology provides actionable insights in easy-to-use dashboards in the DataMan Setup Tool to help diagnose and resolve barcode issues. RTM can track and grade the quality of barcode images and provide valuable process control metrics across an entire facility.
