DM8700DX Handheld Barcode Reader

DataMan 8700 Series Handheld Barcode Readers

Cutting-edge performance for the toughest codes

Manufacturing environments in automotive, medical device, electronics, aerospace, and product security industries require rugged, high performing, and easy to use barcode reading technology to ensure top component traceability and productivity. DataMan 8700 series handheld barcode readers decode the toughest direct part mark (DPM) and label-based codes while withstanding harsh oils, dirt, and water. A built-in display screen enables quick setup and operator feedback, and the readers support a broad range of industrial protocols and communications to connect and operate efficiently in any facility.

DataMan 8700DX is oil and water resistant

Robust oil and water resistant housing

In the past, oils and fluids surrounding an application site have quickly damaged barcode scanners, but DataMan 8700 barcode readers are built to last in the harshest environments. It has IP67-rated housing and meets the ISO 16750-5 oil specification for oil resistance. It is submergible in one meter of water without causing damage and withstands multiple drops from 2.5 meters onto concrete.

DataMan 8700 OLED display screen

OLED display screen makes setup easy

DataMan 8700 series provides a first-of-its-kind OLED display screen to make setup easy and to give operators quick and intuitive feedback without connecting to a PC.

  • Setup the reader using the configurator buttons below the screen
  • Name the reader to know which station it belongs to
  • View the wireless signal strength to ensure the reader is within range
  • Monitor battery life so the reader doesn’t power down mid-shift
  • Review code data to ensure a successful read

Supports more communication options

Integrated industrial protocols enable DataMan 8700 barcode readers to easily connect to PLCs and factory networks. DataMan 8700 supports more communication options than ever before, including Bluetooth 4.2 and a corded option.
