Datalogic - Gryphon GM4400 (2D)

The most advanced reading technology and the best radio technology with a unique set of features to allow operators maximum efficiency and ease of use.

Advanced Wireless Features

Featuring narrow band radio communications with Datalogic’s STAR Cordless System, the Gryphon GM4400 reader provides increased productivity and flexibility in the workplace. The GM4400 offers a scalable solution from simple point-to-point applications to point-to-multipoint installations with up to 16 scanners connected to the same base station. Batch Mode allows thousands of codes to be stored in memory and when combined with a long-lasting Lithium-Ion battery allows 60,000 scans-per-charge.

Scan Barcodes Accurately and Quickly

Lightweight and comfortable to use, the steady, dim, deep red illumination light is much easier on the eyes than other similar products with flicker illumination. The highly visible 4-dot aimer clearly defines the reading zone and the center cross provides a locator for targeting when scanning a sheet or product with multiple bar codes.

The Gryphon GM4400 2D reader is designed with Motionix motion-sensing technology, which enables the scanner to intuitively switch into handheld mode, activating the illumination and aiming systems when the device is picked up. The two-position base station provides the flexibility to use the scanner in presentation or stand mode while it is charging.

Barcode Symbologies Supported

The scanner reads common barcodes including 1D, 2D and postal codes plus stacked and composite codes like PDF417 and GS1 DataBar. It also offers outstanding performance when reading bar codes from cell phones or mobile devices for mobile marketing or ticketing applications.
