Cognex Dataman 150 / 260 Series Barcode Readers
High-speed reading of the most challenging 1-D and 2-D barcodes
Cognex DataMan 150 / 260 series fixed-mount barcode readers achieve the highest possible read rates thanks to a high-speed, dual core processing engine that runs the latest Cognex algorithms.

For 1-D linear barcodes, higher-density 2-D matrix codes, or direct part mark (DPM) codes, the DataMan 150 / 260 series fixed-mount, image-based ID readers deliver unprecedented performance, flexibility and ease of use.
DataMan 150 / 260 series fixed-mount barcode readers achieve the highest possible read rates thanks to a high-speed, dual core processing engine that runs the latest Cognex algorithms.
1DMax™ with Hotbars II™ and 2DMax® with patent-pending PowerGrid™ technology decode damaged or poorly printed 1-D and 2-D codes, despite code quality, printing method or surface that the codes are marked on, and can even read 2-D codes without visible perimeters or quiet zones.
Simplify Installation in tight spaces
DataMan 150 / 260 series models offer straight or right-angled configurations to fit into the tightest spaces. In-line and ninety degree configurations eliminate the need for equipment redesign, and complicated wiring or optical paths with mirrors.
Reduce installation time and cost of ownership
Modular lighting and optics make it easy to change DataMan 150 and 260 series reader lenses and lighting in the field. This not only reduces installation time and resources, but protects the ID reader investment by making it easy to optimize performance for each application and accommodate future process changes.
Optimal image formation for any code
Codes on round, shiny, highly reflective surfaces very often require custom illumination to allow them to be read reliably. Low resolution codes and codes at long working distances also present reading challenges. Cognex’s modular technology makes reading these codes simple.
- 16 mm lens – compared to the standard 6.2 mm lens, this lens can read smaller codes and codes at further working distances.
- Liquid lens technology – the liquid lens module gives you the ability to perform autofocus with no moving parts.
- High-powered Integrated Light (HPIL) – four high-powered red LEDs direct more light onto the code for better image formation. This feature is particularly useful for long distance code reading and high speed applications.
- Half-polarized front cover – 2 polarized LEDs and 2 unpolarised LEDs can be configured for custom lighting for any application. The polarized LEDs are ideal for shiny, specular surfaces, while the unpolarised LEDS are for long distance and high speed applications. Fully polarized and un-polarized front covers are also available, and can be easily interchanged.
