FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Datalogic Scanning Presents a Handheld Loss Prevention Solution Gryphon I GD4110 Imager with EAS Eugene, Oregon, March 10, 2010 – Datalogic Scanning is excited to introduce a solution for loss prevention now available in the renowned line of Gryphon™ handheld scanners. The Gryphon™ I GD4110 imager offers a model that incorporates the Electronic Article Surveillance System (EAS) into its functionality. “The AIDC industry is constantly evolving and setting the bar at increasingly higher levels in answer to the differing demands of data collection markets. We are proud to offer our customers this latest enhancement of our Gryphon product family,” states Dave Sullivan, Sr. VP Global Sales and Marketing. “Through the use of the EAS system our customers will find a stronger return on investment (ROI) by virtue of reducing the risk of inventory loss.” The Gryphon I GD4110 EAS reader is unique to the marketplace, as it is the only handheld linear imager offering an EAS option. The EAS system helps reduce shoplifting losses by identifying items through tags and labels as they pass through a gated area. This model is complete with an integrated EAS antenna, and dedicated EAS cables (RS-232 and IBM 46XX). These points lend to an ease of connection and compatibility with EAS systems, and so allow the operator to deactivate the tags and scan the bar code in a single motion. Tag deactivation is performed by bringing the reader within a short distance to the tag. The distance is determined by the tag/label size and may range from 0 – 4.0 cm/1.5 in. Operators will still experience the versatility, snappy reading performance, and robust lightweight ergonomic form factor found in the Gryphon I GD4100 imager. Total cost of ownership (TCO) is enhanced by the availability of the Remote Host Download feature that aids in lowering service costs and improving operating efficiency.
