Announcing: Cognex DataMan 474
The new DataMan 474 barcode reader has seven powerful processing cores, enabling it to run multiple algorithms and processes in parallel at astonishing speeds. It reads challenging 1D and 2D codes in varied locations, as well as multiple mixed symbologies simultaneously while maintaining the highest decode rates. It is also 12 bits, which can can capture clearer images that are 16x more detailed than 8-bit sensors.
  • High-speed code reading
  • Varied location code reading
  • Mixed symbology, multi-code reading
  • Large field of view, large & greater depth of field
  • Faster line speeds
  • Improved code handling
  • 99.9% read rates for optimal throughput and traceability
The DataMan 474 easily solves challenging applications such as automotive component traceability, tire identification, airport baggage handling, automated sorting, and more.
HDR+ technology enables DataMan 474 to read an increased range of codes
than is possible with conventional or other HDR technologies.
