July 22, 2010
Cognex introduces the 1DMax, a new 1D code reading algorithm, optimized for omnidirectional barcode reading with the ability to handle extreme variations in code quality.

According to Cognex, the patented IDMax technology allows for an accurate read of every type of code regardless of the size, quality, printing method or surface the codes are marked on. The image-based reader is available in both handheld and fixed reader formats. For 2D codes, Cognex 2DMax utilizes a 2D Data Matrix and QR coding.

Cognex image-based readers also feature CognexConnect Ethernet communications, autofocus capabilities, multiple code reading in a single image, and image archiving.
