gryphon™ i gm4100
General Purpose Handheld Linear
Imager Bar Code Reader with
Datalogic’s STAR Cordless System™
The Gryphon family represents the premium line of Datalogic
ADC’s general purpose handheld data collection products. The
Gryphon GM4100 cordless linear imaging readers offer the
richest feature set among general purpose product offerings.
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 Datalogic’s 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 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
RS-232 emulation. The Datalogic Aladdin™
configuration program provides user-friendly
features that simplify the start-up procedure,
even for inexperienced users.
