Datalogic Gryphon GD4500 2D Imager
The new Gryphon™ GD4500 2D scanner.
Since the current Gryphon family was first launched in 2009, millions of units have been sold throughout the world. With such a high level of success, the bar has now been raised to the next level and a higher standard has been set, achieving the world leading excellence in 2D scanning.
While the Retail POS checkout is the natural environment for this product, the variety of options and its’ overall ruggedness open the doors to specific and significant applications in Manufacturing, Healthcare and Transportation & Logistics. With an outstanding design, unchallenged ergonomics and a rich feature set, the Gryphon GD4500 product represents the premium level of hand held scanners for general purpose applications.
The dedicated optics specifically designed and uniquely tailored for the Gryphon, exploit a megapixel sensor and distinctive technology with highly visible warm-white illumination to achieve outstanding omnidirectional reading performance. Because of the increased motion tolerance, codes placed on fast-moving objects can be easily and quickly captured, creating the ideal hand held scanner for tasks requiring high throughput. Whether in department or specialty stores, in hyper stores and supermarkets, convenience stores or groceries, the Gryphon GD4500 scanner fits most retail in-store requirement for POS checkout.
A specialized model with red illumination provides the ultimate Digimarc® Barcode reading, as Digital Watermarking has become a new reality for top retailers. In the dedicated models with Disinfectant-Ready and Anti-Microbial enclosures, the Gryphon I GD4500 scanner is the ideal companion for Healthcare applications such as in laboratories and bedside point-of-care.
Ruggedness: IP52; 1.8 m / 6 ft drop
Features and Benefits
The Gryphon I GD4500 scanner is extremely elegant in its design which suits even the most sophisticated Retail environment, pure black and pure white and accurate details to match the newest trends for POS systems. It is significantly lighter than its predecessor and is slightly smaller reducing operator fatigueso in turn makingoperations faster.
The 1 megapixel sensor provides a higher resolution, better reading performance and gretaer Depth of Field. The image capture capability benefits from this increased resolution too, enabling value-added applications and providing multiple functions in a single device for a higher ROI.
With its distinctive white-illumination technology, Datalogic is deploying the 2nd generation devices, addressing a wide range of applications from high density bar codes to standard range distances. Warm-white illumination is also easier on human eyes and improves the read rate on colored labels better.
The aiming pattern clearly defines the reading zone improving aiming accuracy. Intuitive and simple to use, it is a unique system allowing accurate ‘pick mode’ scanning and best for targeting codes in multiple bar code environments.
Datalogic’s patented ‘Green Spot’ and exclusive 3GLTM (3 Green Lights) system for superior good-read feedback.
A choice of Standard and High Density optics (both with warm-white illumination) is provided to provide every application with the best reading performance. The High Density version has also been specialized for reading Direct Part Marking (DPM) and specific applications are addressed within the Healthcare industry (reading DPM codes on surgery tools) and Manufacturing shop-floor (particularly in the Electronic industry).
The Gryphon GD4500 HC product series is specifically developed for healthcare applications with Disinfectant Ready enclosures treated with anti-microbial additives that are designed to withstand daily cleaning with harsh disinfectant solutions.
