DataMan 280 Series fixed-mount barcode readers

Overcome tough manufacturing and logistics applications with the DataMan 280 fixed-mount barcode readers. Featuring fast decoding and valuable Industry 4.0 features, the DataMan comes with web browser connectivity and performance monitoring, all in a compact but powerful smart camera.

The DataMan 280 series was engineered to better track and trace items throughout manufacturing and logistics supply chains and solve a broad range of tough 1D, 2D, and direct part mark (DPM) code applications. It is ideally suited to automotive DPM reading, high-speed barcode reading, pallet code reading and presentation scanning, with a large depth of focus for speedy handling.

It can also read multiple label-based barcodes simultaneously on boxes and pallets, even behind specular wraps. Optimised with the latest patented decoding algorithms and high-resolution sensors, it delivers improved code handling and enables greater coverage for better efficiency.
