Windows mobile-based handheld computer

INTERMEC has introduced the Windows Mobile-based CK61ex handheld computer. This rugged computer, with integrated near-far EX imaging technology, enables users to scan 1D and 2D barcodes in any orientation, from six inches to 50 feet away.

The technology also turns warehouse data capture obstacles such as high shelves, multiple barcode formats, damaged labels and dark warehouse corners into opportunities for efficiency.

The CK61ex is a fully-featured addition to the Intermec EX imaging technology-enabled product suite.

It includes 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 has 128MB RAM and 192MB storage to accommodate more and larger applications and their associated data requirements and has support for voice applications.

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.

Its combination of features and capabilities cannot be matched by any product currently on the market. The CK61ex joins the ranks of the EX imaging-enabled products CK31ex and SR61ex, released in 2007.
