New Cognex Reading Technology Makes Any 1D Barcode or 2D Code an Easy Read

With the recent introduction of 1DMax™, a totally new 1D code reading algorithm which sets a new standard for 1D code reading performance, Cognex now offers the most comprehensive range of 1D barcode and 2D Data Matrix code reading tools available in the market. Regardless of the size, quality, printing method or surface the codes are marked on, Cognex patented IDMax® technology allows for an accurate read of virtually every type of code, every time!

“Fast, reliable reading of codes is a high priority for manufacturers. If a barcode reader doesn’t have the right technology to keep up with the variety of different codes found in real world scenarios—everything from uneven lighting, poor print quality, noisy backgrounds, to scratched codes—it can mean time, cost and frustration for any manufacturer,” said Carl Gerst, Business Unit Manager for Industrial ID at Cognex. “That is why higher technology image-based readers are rapidly replacing laser-based readers in a wide range of manufacturing and logistics applications.”

Combined with the best performing hardware on the market, in both handheld and fixed reader formats, Cognex readers can successfully read codes that other readers cannot. For 1D barcodes, 1DMax is the best-in-class reading tool optimized for omnidirectional barcode reading and can handle extreme variations in code quality to achieve unsurpassed read rates. For 2D codes, Cognex 2DMax™ technology pioneered the adoption of 2D Data Matrix and QR coding in many industries by providing unsurpassed read rates in both hard-to-read direct part marking and high speed printed applications.

Cognex image-based readers also feature a wide range of advances, including CognexConnect™ Ethernet communications, autofocus capabilities, multiple code reading in a single image, image archiving and more.
