Intermec delivers data collection applications

Intermec introduces the CK31ex, a handheld computer with integrated near-far area imaging technology that can read virtually any symbology from six inches to 50 feet. The CK31ex enables warehouse workers to consolidate their computing, data capture and documentation needs in a single device.

The CK31ex is the device to integrate the Intermec Intellibeam EX25 auto-focus near-far scan engine. It reads and decodes 1D and 2D bar codes as well as composite and postal codes, from near or far, in any orientation. It can also read bar codes printed on plain paper at long distances, eliminating the need for expensive retro-reflective label media.

The CK31ex also enables users to capture images suitable for proof-of-delivery and documentation of damaged, expired or unsealed goods. The handheld computer features a Microsoft Windows CE.NET operating system, optional factory-loaded terminal emulation support, a quarter VGA color touch display and a Cisco-compatible 802.11 b/g radio.

The RoHS-compliant CK31ex has multiple keyboard options to provide flexibility for applications ranging from shipping and receiving, to put-away, picking and cycle counting for the warehouse floor. An optional user-installable and removable pistol grip handle is ideal for highly repetitive scanning. It also supports Intermec’s SmartSystems Foundation.
