Datalogic Power³ Parallel Processors Help Datalogic Falcon X3 and Elf Mobile Computers Run Faster and Last Longer

Posted June 16, 2011

Datalogic’s newest generation of mobile computers, the Falcon X3 and Elf PDA, deliver real time performance levels while extending battery life. How has Datalogic done this while at the same time addressing the need for converged devices with a host of technologies?

The Datalogic Power³ architecture splits the user interfacing and system level activities between two different processors. This follows a similar principle to dual core processors in modern computers. User interfacing threads go on a main processor clocked at speeds in 100s of MHz while system level tasks are managed by a co-processor running at roughly 10% of the main processor speed. This focuses the main processor on providing a maximized user interface while the co-processor handles system level items in the background.

The Datalogic Power³ parallel processor approach greatly improves user efficiency and battery life. Applications can move at the user’s speed with little to no lag time between application windows or task direction from ERP systems. An added benefit comes from device autonomy with the Power³ architecture lowering the device total cost of ownership through longer lasting batteries, both over the shift and lifetime.


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.
