June 29, 2010 - Cognex enhanced its DataMan 100 2D Data Matrix code quality verifier. The DataMan 100 Verifier has been redesigned for faster setup and easier operation with a new lighting assembly, adjustable 30 and 45 degree angle lighting, an optional height-adjustable stand, and a new part positioning guide for easier location of codes. The DataMan 100 verification system provides compliant grading to the ISO15415, AIM DPM and AS9132 code quality standards and guidelines, and has been tested for compliance to the ISO 15426-2 standard for verification systems. Compliance to the ISO15426-2 standard was made possible in December, 2009 with the release of GS1 Judge Certified Test Cards that have been tested on the recently completed 10x capability industry benchmark verification system. Highlights of the new DataMan 100 verification system include:
A multi-hole mounting plate for direct attachment of verifier assembly to a fixed mounting location or to the optional adjustable stand;
Clear part positioning guide with open window for easy and consistent code location;
Control box with integrated I/O Module, power supply and quick connect lighting cable for easy setup;
10-inch X-Z adjustable stand kit with large base plate for standalone use (optional).
