Can a scanner be future-proof? The Datalogic Gryphon GBT4400 shows that even with all of today’s advancements in the barcode scanning arena, a carefully engineered scanner can stand the test of time.
Ideal for retail environments, the Datalogic Gryphon GBT4400 reads a wide range of codes, including:
- 1D barcodes
- 2D barcodes
- Postal codes
- Stacked and composite codes, such as PDF417 and GS1 DataBar
For a limited time, the Datalogic Gryphon GBT4400 can be purchased at a heavy discount. Typically, the unit retails for $912 and includes a scanner, stand, cable, and power supply. Right now, System ID is offering open box units for just $365.
Instinctive, comfortable for the user
In addition to its advanced reading technology, the Datalogic Gryphon GBT4400 can detect the natural actions of the user. This results in excellent performance, thanks to user-friendly features:
- Lightweight and simple to use
- Steady, dim, and deep red illumination light, which is easier on the eyes than similar products with flicker illumination and allows for more comfort even during long work shifts
- A highly visible 4-Dot aimer, which clearly defines the scanner’s reading zone and makes it easier to hit the barcode the first time
- A center cross, which provides a locator for targeting when the user is scanning a sheet or product with multiple bar codes
- Datalogic’s Green Spot, which places a green spot directly on the code to confirm a good read
- Wireless to 98 feet or 30 meters
Affordable, effective for the retailer
The Datalogic Gryphon GBT4400 offers Bluetooth connectivity, allowing the reader to transmit data through its base station or a Bluetooth device.
In addition, the scanner features Datalogic’s Motionix motion-sensing technology. This automatically switches the scanner into handheld mode when it is picked up, and returns it to stand mode when it is placed back on the stand. Users no longer must scan a code or flip a switch to change from one mode to the other. This saves time and effort, speeding along the scanning process and enabling retailers to serve more customers faster.
Motionix and other advanced features help the Datalogic Gryphon GBT4400 compare favorably with other 2D scanners. For example, the Gryphon can scan while charging, unlike similar units such as the Honeywell Xenon 1902 and the Motorola DS6878. The Gryphon also provides more scans per fully charged batter and a higher IP rating for particulate and water sealing.
