Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX) announces that it has been awarded a 2012 NPI Award in the category of Process Control Tools for its DataMan® 500 fixed-mount barcode reader. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, February 28, 2012 ceremony that took place at the San Diego Convention Center in California.

The DataMan 500 offers consistent, reliable reading of 1-D barcodes that lasers cannot read, including damaged, distorted, blurred, scratched, low height and low contrast codes. It also reads codes presented in any orientation, multiple codes within the same image, and 2-D codes such as Data Matrix and QR codes. With no moving parts to wear out, the DataMan 500 also offers exceptional reliability, lower maintenance and longer product life. 

The high performance DataMan 500 is powered by a proprietary vision chip technology, Cognex VSoC™ (Vision System on a Chip), providing unmatched barcode reading and ease of use not found in other image-based or laser systems available today. Lighting, camera, processor, and communications are all integrated into an exceptionally small industrial housing, making the DataMan fixed-mount readers ideal for the most demanding applications at one reasonable price. Additionally, trigger-free reading and ultra high frame rates eliminate the need for an external trigger, reducing overall setup cost and deployment time.

Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
