Robust oil and water-resistant housing

DataMan 8700 series readers are built to endure relentless manufacturing environments, improving throughput and operational efficiency by thriving where other readers fail. With resilient IP67-rated housing, DataMan 8700 series readers adhere to ISO oil-resistance standards, can function in up to one meter of water, and can withstand multiple drops from 2.5 meters onto concrete.

Premium read performance in milliseconds

The DataMan 8700DX model is equipped with the latest patented decoding algorithms, HDR technologyhigh speed liquid lens, and a multi-core processor to read codes in under 150 milliseconds. Integrated diffuse, polarized, and direct lighting enables superior image formation to read dot peen, laser-etched, and label-based codes on challenging (shiny, cylindrical, dark) surfaces without any hot spots.
