Gryphon™ I GBT/GM4500

The Gryphon™ product series from Datalogic has been perceived as one of the most innovative readers since the beginning and the new generation of 4500 series wireless readers reinforce this concept thanks to the battery wireless charging system that, coupled with an outstanding design, unchallenged ergonomics and a rich feature set, bring the Datalogic Gryphon GM/GBT4500 series to the TOP of hand held scanners for general purpose applications.

On top of contactless recharging, the high-resolution Mega Pixel sensor for outstanding reading results coupled with Datalogic' s distinctive warm-white illumination technology, the high visible red 4-dot and aimer and the Datalogic Motionix™ motion-sensing technology will represent additional key elements for the operators who will find the Gryphon GM/GBT4500 extremely easy to use and intuitive in the Retail, Manufacturing, Transportation & Logistics and Healthcare industries.

Omni-Directional Operating

To read a symbol or capture an image, simply aim the reader and pull the trigger. The Gryphon™ I GBT/GM4500 is a powerful omni-directional reader, so the orientation of the symbol is not important. Datalogic's exclusive patented 'Green Spot' for good-read feedback helps to improve productivity in noisy environments or in situations where silence is required. When positioning the product into the stand, the magnetic coupling will make the scanner automatically detect a bar code inside the field of view, and switch the reading system from trigger mode to autosense mode.


The Gryphon™ I GBT/GM4500 reliably decodes all standard 1D (linear) and 2D bar codes, including GS1 DataBar™ linear codes, Postal Codes (China Post), Stacked Codes (such as GS1 DataBar Expanded Stacked, GS1 DataBar Stacked, GS1 DataBar, Stacked Omnidirectional). The data stream - acquired from decoding a symbol - is rapidly sent to the host. The reader is immediately available to read another symbol.
