gryphon™ i gd4400-b 2d
General Purpose Corded Area Imager
Bar Code Reader
The Gryphon™ 4000 series represents the premium level of
data collection devices from Datalogic ADC for general purpose
applications. Designed with people in mind, the Gryphon™ I
GD4400-B All-in-One imager blends advanced 2D decoding
with motion sensing technology, producing a user-friendly
device with outstanding performance.
Featuring Datalogic’s Motionix™ motion-sensing technology,
the Gryphon I GD4400-B imager senses the actions of the
operator to automatically switch the device into handheld or
presentation mode scanning. When picked up or set down,
Motionix technology transitions the device seamlessly,
eliminating the need to scan a label or rely on a mechanical
The Gryphon I GD4400-B imager provides
snappy, omnidirectional reading
performance on all common 1D and 2D codes
as well as postal, stacked and composite
codes like PDF417. For mobile marketing or
ticketing applications, this scanner also offers
excellent reading performance on bar codes
from mobile devices.
With enhanced optics, the Gryphon I
GD4400-B imager boasts improved motion
tolerance and high speed imaging to
read fast moving codes. This reader also
eliminates the need for separate equipment
for signature capture and document scanning
• Motionix™ motion-sensing technology for
seamless reading mode transitions
• Highly visible 4-Dot aimer with center
cross for targeted scanning
• Permanent tilting stand for handheld or
presentation omnidirectional reading
• Tilt Angle: + 30º / - 15º
• Advanced motion tolerance optics
• Image capture and document scanning
• Reads 1D, 2D and postal codes plus
stacked and composite codes
• Multi-interface options: RS-232 / IBM
46XX / USB or RS-232 / USB / Keyboard
Wedge / Wand
• Datalogic’s patented ‘Green Spot’ for
good-read feedback
As an All-in-One device, the Gryphon I GD4400-B scanner’s
permanent tilting stand is joined with an ergonomic handheld
reader for handheld and presentation reading. The All-inOne imager adjusts to any angle to fit individual scanning
preferences. The cable connection is positioned well above the
counter to avoid damage caused by spills.
User comfort is maximized with the Gryphon I GD4400-B
imager’s steady, deep red illumination light. Easier on the eyes
than competitive products with flicker illumination, the highly
visible 4-Dot aimer defines a precise reading zone and reduces
accidental reads. The aimer’s center cross provides a locator for
targeted scanning in a multiple bar code environment.
