Barcode readers read damaged 1D codes
Cognex DataMan 50L barcode reader is designed for 1-D oriented barcode reading with Hotbars, which can read even scratched or damaged barcodes with a three-position lens and an integrated aimer.
Cognex Corporation's (NASDAQ: CGNX) DataMan 50L is designed for 1-D oriented barcode reading. The DataMan 50L measures just 23.5 mm x 27 mm x 43.5 mm and features an IP65-rated housing. It is ideal for mounting in very tight spaces on production lines and in machinery.
The DataMan 50L features Hotbars, which provide read rates of 1D linear barcodes, including those that are damaged, distorted, blurred, scratched, low height or low contrast. The DataMan 50L also has the ability to analyze "no reads" by letting the user see what the reader sees either live on a monitor or through image archiving.
The DataMan 50L features a three-position lens and an integrated aimer for easy setup at different working distances. The incredibly small form factor enables the reader to integrate into virtually any new or existing installation.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
