Intermec Announces the CK61ex Handheld Computer

Intermec announces the Windows Mobile-based CK61ex handheld computer. The ultra-rugged CK61ex mobile computer with integrated near-far EX imaging technology enables users to quickly scan 1D and 2D bar codes in any orientation, from six inches to 50 feet away, capture images, signatures, and documents as well as leverage the use of less expensive paper labels for long-distance scans, opening up new efficiencies and application opportunities across the warehouse. The technology turns warehouse data capture obstacles such as high shelves, multiple bar code formats, damaged labels and dark warehouse corners into opportunities for efficiency.

The CK61ex is the most fully-featured, rugged addition yet to the Intermec EX imaging technology-enabled product suite. It comes available with the most widely adopted embedded operating system, including Windows Mobile 5.0 and includes optional Terminal Emulation support to integrate with existing warehouse management systems.

In addition, the CK61ex supports growing customer interest in leveraging a-band radio frequencies by offering support for the 802.11a/b/g radio. It comes with 128MB RAM and 192MB storage to accommodate more and larger applications and their associated data requirements and has support for voice applications. Finally, the CK61ex also provides non-incendive options (UL Class I, II, III, Div 2), and in 2008, the product will provide mobile RFID read/write functionality through an optional snap-on RFID handle: the recently announced IP30.
