With rich feature sets and extensive model options, the Gryphon product series from Datalogic Scanning represents the premium level of data collection equipment for general purpose applications. The Gryphon D432 Plus ESD reader has been specially developed by Datalogic Scanning to satisfy the strict requirements for EPA (ESD Protected Area) use.
ESD is a phenomenon that occurs when an object has an imbalance in its electrical charge: a fast charge transfer between objects with differing electrostatic potential caused by contact or by the proximity of the two objects. Wherever electronic components are handled, installed or assembled, ESD poses a threat to product quality. With technological advances in electronics an increasing number of these components are susceptible to damage or destruction by increasingly lower voltage levels. ESD events can also compromise the measurements taken by very sensitive instruments, like those used in hospital and medical analysis laboratories.
The most advanced polymer and elastomeric technologies are used for the ESD-safe Gryphon D432 Plus reader. The body of the product is composed of a slightly conductive plastic, rather than an insulating one, preventing the accumulation of tribocharges. Specific cables additionally guarantee ESD safety between any two points.
These specialized protective features are added to the same outstanding reading snappiness and full 2D decoding capability of Gryphon D432 Plus. Enhanced optics with improved 'motion tolerance' allows codes placed on fast moving objects to be easily and quickly captured, creating the ideal reader for tasks requiring high throughput like those found in light industrial manufacturing environments.
The Gryphon D432 Plus ESD features Datalogic’s exclusive patented 'Green Spot' providing good read feedback directly on the code which is especially useful for noisy environments. Aiming at the image to be captured is easy and intuitive, with the single click trigger that enables the Datalogic 5-dot aimer, marking the four corners and center of the reading area.
