Gryphon I GM4100 Reader – Cordless General Purpose Scanning at its Finest
The Gryphon I GM4100 extends Datalogic’s leadership position with a feature rich scanner that provides everything needed in a general purpose cordless reader. In addition to snappy performance and an outstanding field of view, users now can have two way communications with the host computer through the scanner’s three button keypad and graphic display. Together with the recently introduced 2-position base station the GM4100 provides practically continuous productivity with its ‘Scan-While-Charging’ hands free scanning capability. The Gryphon I GM4100 also works in batch mode, retaining up to 1200 scanned bar codes when scanning outside the radio range. The Gryphon I GM4100 features Datalogic’s STAR Cordless System™ as its communication backbone. Users can create simple to complex narrow band networks that are free from Wi-Fi infrastructure interference.

These features, combined with exceptional reading speeds, reading fields, and a 3-year factory warranty produce the perfect solution for taking productivity to the next level in retail and light industrial applications.
