Share Article

Intermec, a leading supply chain manufacturer and supplier, is introducing its most fully-featured near-far EX imaging technology product yet. The broad feature set includes voice support, 802.11a/b/g radio and non-incendive options to meet market demand for flexible, future-ready warehouse solutions.

Intermec, , is announcing their new 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 and capture images, signatures and documents using less expensive paper labels for long-distance scans. This opens 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.

The CK61ex supports growing customer interest a-band radio frequencies, as well, 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. 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 with integrated EX imaging technology really 'does it all' so that companies can run their warehouse without compromise," said Chris Kelley, Director of RFID and Data Capture Marketing for Intermec. "The broad feature set meets today's needs, and also readies an organization for tomorrow's changes and opportunities, including the growing prevalence of 2D bar codes in warehouse and distribution systems across industries."

The CK61ex joins the ranks of the successful EX imaging-enabled products CK31ex and SR61ex, released in 2007. "We've seen our customers rapidly and enthusiastically adopt the EX product set, finding they can incorporate things like 2D or take advantage of high shelves and improve productivity," said Chris Meyer, president of The SMS Group. "With the CK61ex, market adoption will only increase, and we're excited to help our customers improve operations and leverage a technology that will be delivering value for them over the long term."

The Intermec CK61ex is now available for order. For more information, visit or call 800-347-2636.
