Cognex Corp.'s next-generation DataMan® handheld industrial
ID scanner is designed for the factory floor and offers the industry's most
advanced code-reading technology using patented IDMax® technology for reading
1D and 2D codes regardless of size, quality, printing method or surface. The
DataMan 8000 Series also offers two new innovations for an industrial handheld
code reader: modular communications (including Ethernet) and liquid
lens variable focus technology.
The DataMan 8000 Series features Cognex superior code
reading capabilities with two powerful algorithms, 1DMax™
It is the first industrial handheld reader to offer integrated
liquid lens technology. The adjustable focus of the liquid lens gives the
maximum depth of field flexibility for an image-based handheld reader. This new
technology, already integrated into Cognex
fixed-mount readers, allows a user to read small 2-D direct part
marks as well as long linear bar codes with a single reader.
The DataMan 8000 Series also supports both RS-232/USB and
Industrial Ethernet communication, and is available in two models:
8500 The DataMan 8500 readers incorporate
patented UltraLight® technology from Cognex for image formation on any mark
type and surface. The UltraLight provides dark field, bright field and diffuse
lighting all in one electronically controlled light.
8100 The DataMan 8100 includes all of the
features of the DataMan 8500 readers, with bright field illumination. The
DataMan 8100 readers are ideal for applications that require code-reading without
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
