DataMan® 5.2 software features expanding tuning and scripting capability, as well as a new test mode for DataMan 300 and 503 series barcode readers. The software significantly increases read rates by decoding lower resolution 1-D codes and extending intelligent tuning capabilities to all symbologies, including Aztec, MaxiCode and PDF417. The release includes the high-performance Hotbars™ algorithm, which handles both 1-D and PDF417 barcodes. The release extends the easy-to-use 2-D intelligent tuning capability that was introduced by the DataMan 300 series. This capability decreases set up time, while increasing read rates for Direct Part Mark (DPM) code reading applications.
