High-speed performance, even with challenging barcodes.

DataMan 8050 Series Handheld Barcode Reader Features

DataMan® 8050 series readers are equipped with Cognex’s world-class barcode reading algorithms and designed to withstand harsh factory floor conditions. The best in class algorithms decode even challenging barcodes quickly and easily including Direct Part Mark (DPM) codes. And, the flexible modular design ensures the DataMan 8050 series readers are ready to meet ever changing communication needs.


Modular Communications for Maximum Flexibility

The DataMan 8050 series of industrial barcode readers feature field interchangeable communication modules and enable one reader to be configured to meet specific communication needs to support corded RS-232, USB, and Ethernet options, as well as cordless options including Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

The DataMan 8050 series can be used for 1-D and 2-D barcode reading applications in automotive body and assembly, electronics manufacturing, incoming inspection, shipping, automotive kitting, aerospace, packaging, receiving and factory automation.
 The DataMan 8050 series handheld barcode readers can be used for 1-D and 2-D applications in factory. Common barcode reading applications include:



1-D: Read 1-D barcodes on products that are stopped, slow moving, or presented by hand to the barcode reader.


1-D: Read fast moving 1-D barcodes, including those on ultra fast beverage or food production lines.


2-D: Read challenging direct part marked (DPM) codes on virtually any surface (glass, metal, ceramic, plastic).


2-D: Read stopped, hand presented, or moving 2-D codes printed on labels.
