Datalogic Introduces Gryphon 4400 2D Barcode Readers

Posted May 4, 2011

Today, more and more industries are adopting the use of two-dimensional or 2D bar codes. The benefits of two-dimensional barcodes include the ability to include more information in a smaller space, offer higher levels of security and reduce unreadable codes due to printing issues. New user-interactive applications such as mobile marketing, mobile ticketing, electronic coupons and loyalty clubs, typically feature 2D Quick Response or QR codes, which requires a 2D barcode scanner for reading.

Datalogic extends its heritage in imaging technology with the introduction of the Gryphon 4400 series of 2D area imagers. New to the Gryphon 4400 series is the GD4400 corded desktop model, which is ideally suited for stationary applications in retail, manufacturing, and healthcare. Additionally, the GD4400-B “All-in-One” reader with its unique stand design is perfect for retail point-of-sale environments where the need for both handheld and presentation style reading is required.

Based on state-of-the-art area imaging technology, the Gryphon 4400 readers go beyond the typical performance specifications by incorporating features that simplify everyday scanning activities.

Datalogic’s exclusive Motionix™ motion-sensing technology intuitively synchronizes the scanner with the user’s actions allowing seamless transitions between handheld and hands-free style reading. When the device is in your hand, it’s in handheld mode; when the device is still, it’s in presentation mode. It’s that simple.

All Gryphon 4400 series scanners can decode virtually any 1D and 2D bar code symbology and can read codes from LCD monitors, cell phones, smartphones and other mobile devices. The deep-red illumination of the 4400 series eliminates the irritating “flicker effect” found in competing products, allowing for comfortable all-day usage. The center-cross aimer with four corner dots provides a clear indication of the reading area, making targeting codes quick and easy. Datalogic’s patented Green Spot technology provides additional visual good-read confirmation which is a necessity in noisy environments or when silent scanning is desired. Datalogic Aladdin™ configuration software and Remote Host Management provide simple tools to manage deployed devices and keep them synchronized across an enterprise.

Disinfectant-Ready Barcode Scanner Enclosures for Healthcare Environments

Posted January 26, 2011

In any area of a healthcare facility, the need to limit the spread of germs is critial to improve patient care and protect employees in direct contact with infected patients. This can be particularly important if the barcode scanner is traveling room-to-room on a medication cart, stationed in a high-traffic area, or used by multiple personnel. To protect patients and employees, shared equipment must always be kept in a clean, sanitary condition; yet, routine cleaning of data collection devices with harsh chemicals can erode plastic enclosures over time and potentially damage internal components.

Datalogic disinfectant-ready barcode scanners

To solve this challenge, Datalogic‘s Disinfectant-Ready enclosures are designed to withstand daily cleaning with harsh disinfectant chemical solutions to effectively fight germs and bacteria. These special plastic enclosures are treated with silver ion-based anti-microbial additives to earn their anti-microbial status. These additives have been proven to inhibit microbial growth on the scanner’s surface when tested against standards JIS Z 2801:2000. This standard is internationally recognized by the healthcare industry and certifies that specific germs and other micro-organisms are inhibited by the silver ion-based additives. Datalogic’s Disinfectant-Ready enclosures are additionally coupled with industry leading IP sealing ratings to further protect the scanners internal components from intrusion by chemicals and other liquids.

Protect your technology investment as well as your patients and employees health with Disinfectant-Ready enclosures from Datalogic and ensure years of dependable and reliable scanning performance.
