The new Gryphon reader series has been developed by Datalogic to provide optimised reading performance through excellent ergonomic design. 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; optimised optics allow reading of the most popular standard codes with superior depths of field from near contact to over 30 cm. The "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. The Gryphon connectivity is now further expanded thanks to the introduction of new tethered models: besides the standard Gryphon models D100 and D200, are now available the new Gryphon USB models D120, D220 that provide full compatibility with every application that exploits the USB interface: USB KBD Wedge, USB COM emulation and USB IBM POS. Furthermore the D110 model provides complete connectivity to main IBM cash registers and POS terminals. The Gryphon M100 and M200, allow operations anywhere mobility is required at the desk/POS and around the shop floor, as well as in a small warehouse. In addition, the Gryphon readers are now ready to read Reduced Space Symbology (RSS), an emerging symbology that can be printed on a smaller label and meet emerging market needs for a greater amount of data on a symbol.
Gryphon Desk: APPLICATIONS ENVIRONMENTS
DISTRIBUTION AND RETAIL
Shop/Small Warehouse Management
In typical retail environments such as a supermarket point-of-sale, the Gryphon complements flat bed scanners perfectly, providing support by reading heavy and large items as well as poor quality and damaged labels. It can also be useful in all activities that take place on the shop floor (e.g. department store) where incoming goods data logging, inventory management, price verification and document management are common activities. The ergonomic retail stand together with the automatic code detecting function allow hand-free scanning typical of a presentation scanner, in checkout environments where small items must be read frequently.
TRANSPORTATION AND LOGISTICS
Front Office Services
Shipping and Receiving
Document handling and front desk processing are some of the most common applications in post offices, as shipping and receiving inside warehouses. In these environments, where ergonomics and reading performance are a must, the Gryphon series produces highly productive results, especially in sequential operations, thanks to its promptness and flexibility. The new optimized optics provide outstanding reading performance, while the hands-free stand allows the operator to better manage documents and small parcels providing ergonomics and a user-friendly working environment.
Work in Progress
The Gryphon also provides excellent value for applications in manufacturing environments. There are various processes in the manufacturing environment, typically consisting of assembly line material tracking, inventory management, quality control and work-in-progress. These processes are performed at the highest level of accuracy and speed thanks to the new Gryphon reader. Its high mechanical resistance guarantees product duration and investment protection. The good reading "green spot" directly on the bar code also provides the user with clear reading feedback, useful in noisy environments. The Desk and wall holder accessories allow the user to put the reader in a safe place when not in use.
