DataMan 503 Series Barcode Readers
Advanced technology for challenging logistics applications
DataMan 503 Series Features
With the highest read rates in the industry, performance feedback, and no moving parts, the DataMan 503 is suited for the most challenging barcode reading applications and will change the industry’s perception of what can be accomplished with a barcode reader.
Made for challenging logistics applications
The DataMan 503 complements the existing line of DataMan logistics barcode readers and expands the number of applications where image-based readers can be used. It is particularly well-suited for applications that have high speeds, wide belt widths, or large variations in package height. Key DataMan 503 applications include:
- Automated Sorting
- Inbound Sorting
- Outbound Sorting
- Pallet Scanning
- Pick and Pack Sorting
Designed to reduce costs and support process improvement
The DataMan 503 includes all of the DataMan features that have set Cognex barcode readers apart, including:
- Highest read rates
- Performance feedback with real time monitoring
- No moving parts
High read rates to increase throughput of the distribution center
DataMan 503 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 at speeds up to 140 Hz.
1DMaxÂ® with HotbarsÂ® II and 2DMaxÂ® 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.
- 2.1 megapixel resolution
- Fast image acquisition of over 100 frames per second
- Synchronous multi-camera operation
- Xpand Technology for applications that require a larger field-of-view
