Cognex DM500 Scanner

The high performance Cognex DM500 fixed-mount bar code reader is powered by a proprietary vision chip technology, Cognex VSoC (Vision System on a Chip), providing unmatched bar code reading and ease of use not found in other image-based or laser systems available today. The DM500 reads bar codes 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. The DM500 is available in two versions: The DM500 QL for high-speed, 1D bar code scanning applications in food, beverage, consumer products, pharmaceutical, document handling, and logistics applications, and the DM500 X, which has all the benefits of the DM500 QL reader plus 2DMax to read even the most challenging matrix codes in the automotive, aerospace, electronics, and medical device industries.
