Code/Identification Readers

Lightning-fast Decoding

1D and 2D barcodes play a crucial role in the tracking of manufactured products, automating and simplifying identification and data capture. The traditional reading process involves illuminating the code to locate and extract information. However, the swift and reliable verification of these codes poses a challenge for companies that need to comply with global standards and effectively combat counterfeit products.


With the continuous increase in production rates, companies must invest in industrial vision solutions capable of quickly and accurately reading codes to maintain maximum efficiency. Our Cognex barcode imagers are designed to decode 1D, 2D, including the most complex Direct Part Marking (DPM) codes, on any type of label, even those that are damaged.


These barcode imager readers offer the highest reading rates in the market, surpassing their competitors. Thanks to their advanced technologies, modular options, and easy configuration, these readers help reduce costs, optimize performance, increase yield, and ensure effective product traceability. Moreover, they provide detailed reports that allow you to monitor the entire process. With these code readers, nothing will escape your attention.
