Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX), the world's leading supplier of machine vision systems and industrial barcode readers used in factory automation and logistics, has developed, and is now offering for sale, a totally new product line...ruggedized mobile terminals.
Cognex's MX-1000 series of mobile terminals offers manufacturers, logistics companies and many other organizations that currently rely on expensive, inflexible and purpose-built mobile terminals, a revolutionary new method for performing tasks such as inventory management, logistics and field service. The MX-1000 combines the ease-of-use, low-cost and flexibility of off-the-shelf smartphones together with a rugged hand-held assembly that holds both the phone and a specially designed Cognex barcode reader that outperforms competitors' laser-based and camera-based systems. Cognex expects that this unique combination will enable it to become a major player in a $500 million segment of the mobile terminal market.
Cognex designed the MX-1000 after detailed discussions with leading companies that use mobile terminals and who were also customers of Cognex's machine vision products and barcode readers.
