Datalogic - Gryphon GM4100

The Gryphon family represents the premium line of Datalogic Scanning’s general purpose handheld data collection products. The Gryphon GM4100 cordless linear imaging readers offer the richest feature set among general purpose product offerings.

Versatile and Durable

Extremely versatile and durable, the Gryphon GM4100 cordless linear imaging readers are the ultimate solution for applications in retail and light industrial environments where mobility is necessary for improved productivity. Mobile communications also eliminate the restraints caused by cabled devices, providing a safer and more efficient environment for employees.

Narrow band radio communications with the Datalogic STAR Cordless System™ is the key to increased productivity and flexibility in the workplace. The GM4100 reader series offer scalable solutions from simple point-to-point applications to networking capabilities combined with seamless roaming for complex installations.

An optional display with a 3-button keypad provides battery status, radio coverage indicator and enables operator interaction with the host system.

Datalogic’s new, patented 2-position cradle provides multiple solutions to answer different functional and reduced space requirements. It provides hands-free reading capabilities and a scan-while-charging feature to ensure constant up-time for increased productivity.

GM4100 Batch Mode capability allows thousands of codes to be stored in memory. This feature combined with a long lasting 50K scans per charge Lithium-Ion battery allows unlimited mobility and reliable data collection when out- of-range from the base station.

Featuring Datalogic’s exclusive patented ‘Green Spot’ for good read feedback directly on the code, it helps to improve productivity especially in noisy environments. When using the product with the cradle at a 45° position, the Green Spot can work as an aiming system remaining on to aid in positioning the code for quick and intuitive reading.

Standard multi-interface capabilities (GM4130) provide host connectivity via USB, RS-232, Keyboard Wedge and Wand Emulation while IBM interface models (GM4110) provide connectivity via IBM 46XX, USB and Serial (RS-232) emulation. The Datalogic Aladdin™ configuration program provides user-friendly features that simplify the start-up procedure, even for inexperienced users.
