Cognex DataMan 580 Barcode Reader Boosts Throughput for Logistics Tunnels
High-resolution reader decodes multiple symbologies simultaneously at high speeds, supports short package gaps
February 6, 2023
Cognex Corporation has released the DataMan® 580 fixed-mount barcode reader. Designed for the Cognex Modular Vision Tunnel, the DataMan 580 optimizes logistics processes by enabling higher-speed operations while improving traceability. Patented algorithms simultaneously decode multiple 1D and 2D codes at top line speeds while the nine-megapixel area scan imager enables greater field-of-view.
“The DataMan 580 offers significant performance gains for high-speed logistics tunnels. The system’s 1D/2D QuickSort™ algorithm decodes multi-symbology labels up to three times faster than conventional methods. And, because the DataMan 580 system actively tracks packages throughout its field of view, users can reduce the space between boxes and process more items.”Matt Moschner, Vice President of ID Products and Platforms
In contrast to linear scanning systems, the DataMan 580 ensures more robust code reading by deciphering high-perspective labels on irregular objects. The system’s innovative HDR+ imaging algorithm significantly reduces exposure times needed for high-resolution images, delivering crisp, clear images even in low-contrast environments.
The DataMan 580 is a fixed-mount barcode reader designed for the Cognex Modular Vision Tunnel. Utilizing advanced hardware and intuitive software, the DataMan 580 barcode reader empowers sortation operations to read more symbologies faster, boost throughput, improve traceability, and streamline logistics integration.
The DataMan 580 can be enhanced with Edge Intelligence, Cognex’s device management and performance tool, to track real-time system performance and optimize operations downstream. Pairing DataMan 580 Modular Vision Tunnels with Cognex 3D vision systems enables logistics operations to identify label placement and dimensions in real time, helping validate label compliance.
The DataMan 580 integrates easily into Cognex Modular Vision Tunnels for quick deployment of five- and six-sided barcode reading solutions.
Cognex Launches High-Speed Vision Tunnels for Logistics Industry
Cognex Corporation, a leader in industrial machine vision, introduces a series of Modular Vision Tunnels designed for high-speed, high-throughput logistics operations. Built upon Cognex’s DataMan® image-based barcode reading platform, these tunnel solutions accurately read codes on packages at high speeds with short gaps, giving an edge to companies that want to increase sortation throughput and descrease processing times for e-commerce and store fulfillment.
Five- and six-sided Modular Vision Tunnels feature DataMan 470 image-based barcode readers that use advanced decoding technology and algorithms to achieve up to 99.9% read rates, leading to greater throughput and traceability at inbound, outbound, and sortation areas. Setting up these solutions is quick and easy – all tunnels are pre-configured with pre-built reader modules and can be set up within a day, greatly minimizing downtime and delivering fast ROI. Modular Vision Tunnels also offer 3D barcode assignment to ensure the right barcodes are assigned to the right packages to minimize rework.
