DataMan 300 ID Readers

A quantum leap in barcode reading performance.

The DataMan® 300 series of readers was developed to handle the most difficult-to-read DPM (Direct Part Mark) codes as well as challenging 1-D linear barcodes and 2-D Data Matrix codes and for indexed or high-speed lines.

Decode the most challenging 1-D and 2-D barcodes with enhanced 1DMax+™ and 2DMax+™ code-reading algorithms. 2DMax+™ algorithm reads DPM codes no matter the mark type or surface. 1DMax+ with Hotbars™ technology provides higher read rates of damaged 1-D linear barcodes at a faster pace than ever before. The unit is capable of autofocus and auto tuning.

DataMan 300 series is available in two base models.

The DataMan 300 provides standard resolution of 800x600 pixels and the DataMan 302 is the high resolution model (1280x1024). The DataMan 302 is ideal for situations where a very small code is needed to be found within a very large field of view.
