The Datalogic GBT4130-BK-BTK1 Gryphon 4130 handheld barcode reader is black, comes with a charging base and a USB cable, and can be used to scan and decode linear one-dimensional (1D) barcodes. A laser produces a single line of light that can scan barcodes at a speed of up to 325 scans per second in continuous mode. Wireless Bluetooth capability allows the barcode reader to transmit data to a computer or host system (sold separately) when up to 98' away from the charging base or to a Bluetooth-enabled device (sold separately). A batch memory mode enables the reader to store barcode data when it is away from the base and automatically transmit that data when it is back within wireless range. The charging base can be plugged into the USB port of a computer or another host system (sold separately) to transmit barcode data. The base adjusts to two positions and enables the barcode reader to be used in a fixed position. The lithium-ion battery enables the barcode reader to make up to 33,000 scans on one charge. The barcode reader weighs 7.94 oz. and measures 7.1 x 2.8 x 3.9 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) The charging base weighs 8.68 oz. and measures 7.25 x 3.9 x 2.2 inches. It can withstand drops of up to 5.9' on a concrete floor.
Barcode scanners, also known as barcode readers, can be used to scan and decode barcodes and to transmit barcode data to a computer or another host system. Barcode readers with a single-line laser can be used to scan linear, one-dimensional (1D) barcodes. Some lasers can produce light in an omnidirectional pattern to allow scanning of barcodes from different angles. Other barcode readers contain CCD (charge-coupled device) light sensors instead of a laser for accuracy and wear resistance. Barcode scanners with raster scanning, area imaging, and other scanning technologies can allow scanning of two-dimensional (2D) or Portable Document Format 417 (PDF417) barcodes, among other types. Some barcode readers provide onboard flash memory to allow the storage of barcode data before transmitting it to a computer or host system through a USB cable or wireless WLAN or Bluetooth connection. Many barcode readers have a handle for handheld use and come with a stand or a charging cradle for fixed position applications, while others are designed for stationary use on a counter or another flat surface. Some portable readers are small enough to be carried in a pocket or attached to a lanyard. Barcode readers are used at retail checkout counters and other points of sale (POS) locations and in warehouses and shipping facilities.
Datalogic manufactures barcode readers, mobile computers, sensors, vision systems, and laser marking systems, among others. The company, founded in 1972, is headquartered in Bologna, Italy.
