Datalogic has moved a step ahead in the concept of "instinctive reading". The new Gryphon reader series has been developed to provide optimised reading performance through excellent ergonomic design, a natural instinctive reading approach and innovative good reading feedback.
The "INSTINCTIVE READING DISTANCE", a concept introduced by Datalogic a few years ago based on in-depth ergonomic studies, represents the natural position of the user while reading a code. The Gryphon series takes this concept one step further. The series includes two tethered (D100 and D200) and two cordless (M100 and M200) models, allowing operations anywhere mobility is required at the desk/POS and around the shop floor, as well as in a small warehouse. The new "green spot", (Datalogic patent application) produced by the Gryphon provides "good reading" feedback directly on the code, where the user usually tends to be looking. Correct pointing becomes quick and easy thanks to the sharp and bright illumination line. All these characteristics are coupled with outstanding performance in terms of reading quickness and decoding capability thanks to state-of-the-art optics and a decode rate of 270 scans/sec, making the Gryphon very user friendly, intuitive and fast. Especially optimised optics allow reading of the most popular standard codes with superior depths of field from near contact to over 30 cm. High resolution codes, which can reach 3 mils are also easily read. Two specific models of the Gryphon series (D200 and M200) have also been designed to provide decoding of the PDF417, as well as traditional bar codes.
The Gryphon M is 100% compatible with the STAR-System , the new Datalogic RF narrow band solution for mobile applications that provides the widest family of narrow band devices on the market.
Plug & Play
The enhanced multi-interface architecture allows quick and easy connection to the system. The user simply plugs the cable into the reader or cradle and reads the selected interface configuration code. No other settings are required to be operative quickly. For the cordless models a simple "placing" of the reader in its cradle is sufficient to start the transmission.
Once connected, the user can instantly take advantage of the excellent reading speed, guaranteed both by powerful hardware architecture and enhanced decoding software. In addition, "state-of-the-art" optics permit the Gryphon to read at superior depths of field (over 30 cm) never reached before by similar products when reading popular codes. In the cordless models, the fast reading cycle is guaranteed by a prompt response from the cradle.
Ergonomics and Friendliness
The Gryphon has been designed keeping in mind user comfort. The handy shape, wide reading angle, light weight and new patented "green spot" for good reading feedback, are well combined features that prevent users from overworking, to make using Gryphon easy, intuitive and comfortable in a number of applications. Acknowledgement from the cradle produces additional feedback on the result of transmission.
Flexibility and Versatility
A large set of configurable parameters allow the user to customise the Gryphon for specific needs. Data Formatting, Data Editing, Reverse-Code Reading and Hands-Free Reading with auto-trigger mode are just some of the features available. The four models offered cover the needs of a large number of applications.
Mobility and Autonomy
The cordless models of the Gryphon address the needs of many applications, giving additional value to the product wherever mobility is a must. Free from cable constraint and entanglement, the models are ideal for small warehousing, POS InStore and Cash and Carry applications and more than 25,000 operations are possible per recharging cycle. With multi-point capability the Gryphon M allows you to assign multiple scanners (up to 16) to a single base station, increasing throughput and reducing the cost of additional base stations and host terminals.
Broad Range Radio Coverage
A two way 433 MHz low power narrow band radio avoids interference and allows an operating range of more than 30 m, covering an area of more than 2500 square meters.
STAR-System provides the most flexible wireless connection between data and business: "RS232 stand-alone" configurations as well as "RS485 network" solutions. It has a wide area coverage, and real-time connection with the user application. In addition, it is a reliable, fast and cost-effective system with minimal installation costs.
