DataMan 8000 - The rugged DataMan 8000 Series of readers offers the industry's most advanced technology for reading 1D and 2D codes regardless of size, quality, printing method or surface, and is the only handheld ID reader that offers Industrial Ethernet communication and liquid lens technology. This is a Control Engineering 2011 Engineers' Choice (EC) nominee.The DataMan 8000 Series of handheld industrial ID readers features patented IDMax technology and two powerful algorithms, 1DMax and 2DMax, to decode virtually every type of code, every time, with unsurpassed read rates.

The new DataMan 8000 Series is the first to offer integrated liquid lens technology in an industrial handheld ID reader. The adjustable focus of the liquid lens gives maximum depth of field flexibility enabling you to use the system close up for very small 2D direct part marks as well as at a greater distance to read longer 1D barcodes, with extremely fast response times. The DataMan 8000 Series of ID readers is also the first handheld reader to offer Ethernet communication capability for easy integration into your factory network for real-time product and part traceability.

Another first for industrial ID readers is the modularity of the communication.  Customers can install their readers with the RS-232/USB communication module for their needs today and then simply purchase the Ethernet module at a later date if their communications needs change. The DataMan 8000 Series interchangeable communication modules enable the additional benefit of standardization on one reader platform.
