New software announced for Cognex DataMan ID Readers

New software announced for Cognex DataMan ID Readers
Cognex Corporation has announced new software that expands the decoding capabilities of the DataMan 100 vision-based ID readers and provides additional code support for all models in the DataMan product family. With the new software release 3.2, DataMan 100 fixed-mount ID readers can now simultaneously read up to 128 codes in a single field of view - even with mixed code types - opening up many new application possibilities. 
 
"Many manufacturers continue to use a traditional 1D barcode label for the product ID, but have added a direct-marked 2D code to store the serial number, batch number, and date and lot code.  They want to read both codes simultaneously for tracking and tracing products through their manufacturing process, and our new multicode feature is perfect for them," said Carl Gerst, Cognex ID Reader Business Unit Manager.  "Others want to read codes on multiple products that appear in the same field of view due to their small size, such as components on a printed circuit board or medical vials in a tray.  DataMan 100 can now read all of them at once."

In addition to the new multicode feature for the DataMan 100 Series, release 3.2 provides improved performance on all DataMan models for QR codes having perspective distortion, especially with high-contrast labels. The 3.2 release also includes support for VeriCode for customers who purchase a license key from Veritec.
