Fixed-mount Barcode Readers

Industrial-Grade Fixed-Mount ID Readers and Verifiers

The most versatile and rugged fixed-mount readers available

In-Sight ID Barcode Reader Technology

In-Sight ID readers incorporate IDMax®, breakthrough code-reading software based on the patented Cognex PatMax® technology, through 1DMax and 2DMax®+ algorithms. IDMax can read 1-D code symbologies such as UPC, PDF, stacked and postal codes, 2-D code symbologies such as Data Matrix and QR, or a mix of barcode and 2-D codes simultaneously.

1DMax Codes

IDMax Technology with Hotbars II

1DMax+ is a best-in-class 1-D barcode-reading tool optimized for omnidirectional barcode reading and can handle extreme variations in contrast, blur, damage, voids, secularity, resolution, quiet zone violations and perspective distortion.

2DMax and PowerGrid Codes dark and light lighting good reads

2DMax and PowerGrid

2DMax+ is optimized for reading QR codes and handles a wide range of degradations to 2-D Data Matrix code appearance that result from dramatic degradations in Direct Part Marking (DPM) code quality due to differences in material types and surfaces. 2-D Data Matrix code reading in DPM applications is an increasingly important part of manufacturing processes. An unreadable code may stop production, and can result in the part not being processed correctly.


  • Real-time reading of 1-D and 2-D codes at rates over 7200ppm
  • Includes IDMax – the industry's most reliable Data Matrix reading software
  • Industry-standard mark quality assessment metrics for 1-D and 2-D codes
  • Fast setup, plus reliable, robust operation

Fast, Reliable Code Reading

Industrial identification is very challenging due to variations in mark appearance, uncertainty of part position and high production line speeds. The combination of sensor, processor architecture and optimized ID software, allows In-Sight fixed-mount readers to meet high-speed production requirements, while maintaining accurate reading.
