Intermec, Inc. (NYSE:IN) today announced integrated RFID capabilities for its CK70, CN70 and CN70e mobile computers. Part of Intermec’s industry-leading 70 Series family, these no-compromise devices now offer a fully-integrated UHF RFID reader with no external antenna – adding advanced RFID reading capabilities to what is already one of the industry’s most compact, ultra-rugged designs.
Designed specifically for customers seeking a mobile RFID solution in demanding in-premise environments, the Intermec 70 Series RFID reader platform supports medium to long-range read distances and is optimized to read one or many tags in support of inventory and asset tracking applications in retail, healthcare, industrial and government market segments. Additionally, the 70 Series RFID does not compromise size and weight; with a fully integrated design utilizing Intermec’s IM11 embedded module, along with an internally housed antenna, customers can experience advanced RFID read performance while maintaining the already-compact form factor of the 70 Series mobile computers.
“The 70 Series RFID capabilities showcase Intermec’s continued commitment to our long-standing position as a leader in advanced RFID technology,” said Earl Thompson, Intermec Senior Vice President, Mobile Solutions Business Unit. “This new solution combines RFID reading, with the already solid feature set of the industry-leading 70 Series platform to meet or exceed typical handheld RFID read range requirements in a design that is more compact and comfortable to use than existing solutions.”
With its single platform approach, the 70 Series RFID is unique in its ability to deliver the benefits that come with one architecture, one software build, one set of peripherals and one charging system, bringing simplicity to the frequent tasks of software updates, training new employees, managing spares pools and charging devices. Additionally, the 70 Series RFID is fully compatible with the entire suite of original 70 Series accessories including the FlexDock modular docking system, which is designed to meet current and future charging and communication needs while maximizing the return on accessory investment.
