Datalogic launches the Gryphon™ 4200 series, a new premium line of Linear Imagers with extraordinary versatility

Bologna, November 12th 2020. Datalogic, a global leader in the automatic data capture and factory automation markets, is pleased to announce the new Gryphon™ 4200 linear imager series.  This new premium line of 1D handheld scanners is ideal for retail POS checkout applications, manufacturing work-in-progress and order processing, ticketing and entertainment access control, healthcare, and much more.

The Gryphon 4200 devices give customers the benefit of best-in-class reading performance featuring remarkable capabilities including: capturing barcodes both near and far; a superior depth of field; reading both high-density and low-resolution codes; decoding hard-to-read, poor or damaged codes; reading barcodes from mobile devices screens.

The Gryphon 4200 series is equipped with Datalogic Motionix™ motion-sensing technology.  These scanners automatically detect the natural actions of the operator to instantly switch the scanner into the “ready-to-read” scanning mode.

Leveraging Datalogic’s distinctive “soft line viewfinder”, operators can easily target the barcode to be read, scan and decode exactly the correct label. This aiming feature reduces accidental reads when multiple barcodes are present; a very advantageous feature especially in commercial services and document handling.

This new scanner series include Datalogic patented “Green Spot” technology for superior good-read feedback. Operators see a green spot projected directly on the barcode scanned; ideal for dim lighting conditions or noisy environments.

Datalogic pioneered the inclusion of wireless charging in handheld scanners. This innovation is included in the Gryphon 4200 wireless scanners. These new scanners are contact charging free and achieve battery recharge through an inductive charging system. Wireless charging significantly enhances the reliability of the solution. This distinctive feature drastically lowers the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by eliminating the need for contacts maintenance and cleaning procedures. Retailers who manage several stores can benefit extensively from wireless charging.

The Gryphon 4200 scanners deliver maximum reliability through wireless charging technology. This means 24/7 activities with no need to stop for maintenance or repair while staff operate at top-level productivity and performance. In addition, the Gryphon 4200 wireless scanners include a long-lasting replaceable Lithium-Ion battery and smart battery management. These features offer unparalleled autonomy and operating flexibility, providing over 80 hours of uninterrupted work and over 80,000 readings per charge.

The Gryphon 4200 readers provide exceptional versatility to handle any application with two options for wireless communications. Bluetooth® 4.0 wireless technology is included in GBT models. Narrow band radio communications from Datalogic’s STAR Cordless System™ are available on GM models.

The unit is charged using the new WLC4190 sleek desk/wall cradle; ideal for use where small size and reduced footprint are required. This is perfect for applications in postal, banks and public administration environments. This cradle is fully compatible with the Datalogic Gryphon 4500 wireless scanners, futureproofing the investment for upgrades to 2D scanning.

The Gryphon 4200 scanners are manufactured with “disinfectant ready” enclosures. They withstand regular cleaning with harsh disinfectant solutions, commonly used in healthcare environments such as hospitals, laboratories and pharmacies.
