Cognex has integrated advanced 2DMax+ code reading software technology into the compact DataMan 100 and 200 fixed-mount barcode readers. With 2DMax+, the readers can now identify and decode severely damaged or poorly marked 2-D matrix codes. Most importantly, the barcode readers are unaffected by variations in lighting, marking method, code quality or surface finish. Applications in the medical device industry include: 1) Read 2D codes marked directly on parts (DPM), devices, and surgical instruments 2) Read barcodes and verify text on flexible products such as solution bags 3) Verify label data and match package to product 4) Verify products in kit packaging are in the correct location and orientation 5) Read 1D and 2D codes and text on packages.

Though Data Matrix codes have built-in error correction, “no-reads” can still occur when codes are incomplete. 2DMax+ can read Data Matrix codes even when critical elements are missing. 2DMax+ can also locate and decode Data Matrix codes that are overexposed or underexposed, without requiring multiple retries. This improves throughput, speed and overall reliability.
