Data Matrix Readers and Verifiers


The DataMouse Pro has been developed specifically to read the toughest Data Matrix direct part marks (DPM). The DataMouse ‘on contact’ approach blocks out ambient light and sets the optimum focus. This allows the intelligent multi angle, multi intensity lighting to create the best real-time on-screen image possible for Data Matrix decoding.

The DataMouse™ connects to a PC/Laptop via the USB2.0 connector and requires no external power supply making a laptop connected DataMouse™ a truly portable solution.

  • Compact, Lightweight & Ergonomic design.
  • Multi Angle, Multi Intensity Automatic and programmable Lighting
  • Real-time on-screen video display
  • Powerful low contrast Data Matrix decode algorithms
  • USB2.0 PC interface
  • High Resolution 5 Mega-Pixel CMOS imager, for reading very small codes.
  • Built-in IUID MIL130-STD syntax checker.
  • Capable of reading Data Matrix marks applied using various marking methods
  1. Dot Peen
  2. Laser
  3. Electro-chemical etching
  4. Ink-Jet
  5. Printed Labels
  6. Any other high contrast marking or printing methods

The PC software ‘Medusa™ 4’ features a powerful decode engine which allows the decoded information to be modified and transferred in the following ways.

  • Display on screen with decode history screen
  • Keyboard Wedge (Simply types the information at the PCs cursor)
  • Write to file (Append, overwrite or new file every time
  • Write to Database using ODBC connection string and SQL
  • Write to RS232 port
