A Quantum Leap in Barcode Reading Performance


No Code Left Behind: Say goodbye to no reads and misreads!  DataMan 300 Barcode Reader


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.


Unmatched read rate performance


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.


Flexible lighting and optics   

 DataMan 300 lighting options 

Controllable, field interchangeable lighting modules allow you to create the best possible lighting for your part, ensuring the highest read rates of DPM codes. 


Flexible lens options-C-Mount lens, S-Mount or a variable focus liquid lens to provide maximum depth of field flexibility.




Ease of deployment

 DataMan 300 tuning

Intelligent tuning automatically adjusts the settings of the integrated lighting to find the optimal light setup for the part

e-TORQ Motors Eliminate the Need for Speed Reducers
 Extremely high torque, energy efficient, and extraordinary precision

The ironless stator of the e-TORQ motor from Bodine eliminates the iron saturation common to most other types of motors, and allows the motor to run smoothly at extremely low speeds, even when powered by a standard drive.


e-TORQ's high peak torque capability can allow, in certain applications, the elimination of costly gearboxes and reduce the risk of lubricant leaks. For example, a 14-inch e-TORQ motor can deliver more than 200 lb-in. at speeds of up to 1,200 rpm.

When combined with a high performance digital amplifier, a Bodine e-TORQ system becomes an easy-to-set-up, high performance motion control solution. e-TORQ motors can eliminate the need for a planetary gearhead, or other mechanical gear reduction methods.

  • Zero cogging at slow speeds
  • Alternative to planetary gearmotors
  • High torque linearity
  • Multiple windings are possible at any voltages between 24V and 300V.
