DataMan 500 is a revolutionary new barcode reader that is powered by VSoC, a proprietary all-in-one vision technology developed by Cognex. VSoC enables a new level of performance for area-scan image-based readers never seen before. DataMan 500 reads barcodes at twice the speed of other readers and is so easy to use, and reads codes so well, that it doesn’t have to be positioned optimally to achieve high read rates.
