Datalogic - Gryphon GD4100

With rich feature sets and extensive model options, the Gryphon™ product series from Datalogic Scanning represents the premium level of data collection equipment for general purpose applications.

Advanced Reading Performance

The Gryphon linear imaging readers provide advanced reading performance and decoding for a wide variety of applications. The Gryphon GD4100 ability to capture bar codes from near contact to over 1 m increases productivity and improves ergonomics for users.

A wide scan angle reads very wide codes and renewed decoding capabilities increase throughput on hard-to-read, poor or damaged codes. All of these features combined with high- resolution decoding for labels as small as 3 mil, establishes the Gryphon GD4100 readers as high-performance products and powerful data capture solutions.

Datalogic’s exclusive patented ‘Green Spot’ for good-read feedback directly on the code is ideal under dim lighting conditions or noisy environments. The Green Spot, together with the fast reading and decoding capabilities make the Gryphon GD4100 readers the best choice to improve productivity in retail and office environments, hospitals, pharmacies, light industrial, warehouses and manufacturing plants.

The Gryphon GD4100 readers offer a choice of two sets of multi-interface options: USB, Keyboard Wedge, Serial and Wand Emulation, or for use in point-of-sale (POS) environments, IBM 46XX, USB and Serial. Both interface sets offer configuration flexibility and are easily adapted for migration or future changes to the host system.

Remote Host Download lowers the service costs and improves operations allowing for hassle-free field upgrades while the desktop Datalogic Aladdin™ configuration program provides user-friendly features that simplify the start-up procedure, especially for inexperienced users.

The Gryphon I GD4100 readers’ stylish enclosures, reduced weight and physical dimensions together with a 1.8 m drop resistance and IP52 sealing rating produce a reliable, ergonomic solution with the combined excellence of ease of use and advanced reading capabilities.
