The CK3X is a truly rugged mobile computer and is designed to withstand multiple five-foot (1.5 meter) drops to concrete across all operating temperatures. It also delivers industry-leading battery life performance, lasting through a full shift and beyond without requiring workers to replace or recharge batteries. The sleek form factor also comes free of the heavy bulk contained by traditional rugged devices in the same class.CK3R – Mobile Automation Offers Easy-to-Use Form Factor and Simple Implementation The CK3R contains the perfect mix of functionality and value for light industrial and retail environments. The CK3R’s slightly smaller size offers an even lighter, more ergonomic form factor perfect for front of store retail applications and also contains the newly introduced EA31 imaging engine for quick and accurate scanning operations and support for omni-directional scanning of 1D and 2D barcodes. Additionally, the CK3R is designed to stand up to the rigors of everyday use with a rugged, laser-etched keypad, a four-foot (1.2 meter) drop rating to concrete across all operating temperatures and an IP54 seal rating against rain, moisture and dust. Both the CK3X and CK3R make transitioning from other mobile computers easy with device configuration tools like CloneNGo – Intermec’s breakthrough device provisioning – which makes it easy to “clone” device settings from a single master unit to an unlimited number of devices. Additionally, with the latest Microsoft® Windows Embedded Handheld operating system, the CK3X and CK3R are compatible with a wide range of software applications – from warehouse management systems to other mission-critical tools developed by the Intermec PartnerNet Independent Service Provider (ISV) community. “As one of Canada’s largest independent hardware retailers, we rely on supreme efficiency and innovative technology when it comes to inventory management,” said Keith Hunt, Director of Retail Applications at Home Hardware. “We have been incredibly happy in our trials with the Intermec CK3 Next Generation Series and are confident it will offer us a fast, reliable, superior solution as well as a seamless migration from our existing CK3 handheld mobile computers.”
“The CK3 Next Generation Series is a workhorse that provides users of our Stay-Linked Terminal Emulation solution with a robust platform for remote access to their host-based enterprise applications,” said David Griffith, President and CEO of Stay-Linked Corporation. “We’ve developed and certified Stay-Linked client software specifically for the CK3 Next Generation Series, and we’ve found that the available multiple keyboard and scan engine configuration options allow for the customization of a user’s experience to the unique requirements of an individual working environment, which maximizes workflow. It’s a great addition to the new state-of-the-art mobile computer offerings from Intermec.”“For business critical mobile applications the need for mobile devices with reliable battery performance, data capture configuration options, robust security and enhanced processing power to support increasingly sophisticated applications in a lightweight ergonomic yet rugged design is critical,” said David Krebs, VP Mobile & Wireless Practice, VDC Research. “Intermec’s CK3 Next Generation family of rugged handheld devices delivers these capabilities and is well designed to support mobile applications across a variety of rigorous warehouse, logistics and retail environments.” The CK3X and CK3R debut today at the International Pack Expo in Chicago, located in the Intermec booth #N-6123 in the Lower North Hall of McCormick Place.
