Cognex Corporation (Natick, MA) has made its DataMan® DPM reading technology available on a mobile computer. The DataMan 9500 industrial-grade mobile computer is ideal for reading challenging DPM (direct part mark) codes in applications where operators need to view the code data on an integrated handheld device. The DataMan 9500 provides DPM code reading, direct connectivity to factory networks via Wi-Fi, and an integrated GUI.

The DataMan 9500 features the powerful 2DMax™ algorithm, providing the most advanced decoding available for difficult to read 2-D codes, including dot peen and laser etched, on any metal surface. The adjustable focus liquid lens maximizes the depth of field for reading barcodes. This industrially proven technology enables the DataMan 9500 to decode 2-D DPM marks close up, or 1- D barcodes from a distance. The DataMan 9500 connects directly to factory networks via 802.11 a/b/g protocols on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands for real-time wireless communication.
