Taking DataMan 8000 to the 1D and 2D Max

If you follow the handheld barcode reader game (I can’t be the only one) you know that the DataMan® 8000 series is the only industrial handheld barcode reader that offers Industrial Ethernet communication and liquid lens technology. But, you may not know that DataMan handheld readers now have 1DMax+™ and 2DMax+™ technology to handle the most hard-to-read codes and make quick work of 1-D linear barcodes as well as 2-D matrix symbologies.

I won’t get too far in the weeds on this, but it’s worth pointing out that these are some pretty nifty advancements. Extreme variations of code degradation have always been a problem for barcode readers in an industrial environment. 1DMax+ with Hotbars™ image analysis technology gives the DataMan 8000 the ability to quickly read barcodes presented at any angle and can also read multiple codes simultaneously.  2DMax+ addresses the challenges associated with reading Direct Part Marks (DPM) on chips, plastic, ceramics, glass, or metal, overcoming marking quality problems and damaged clocking patterns on codes.
