ProScan launches rugged mobile computer with integrated GPS


ProScan Systems recently introduced the Intermec CN3e mid-sized mobile computer that features extensive communications and integrated GPS options with an enlarged keypad to support key-based data intensive in-field applications.

The rugged CN3e, part of the CN3 Series, is the first mid-sized handheld to offer a fully integrated, independent GPS option, as well as Wi-Fi, WWAN and Bluetooth and data services (GPRS- EDGE) in a single package, with an extended accessories line to support numerous application requirements, including Direct Store Delivery and In-Transit Visibility.
This is further enhanced by CN3e support for seamless voice and data communications, connections to peripheral devices, easy integration into company networks, and satellite-based navigation services that maximise fleet efficiency. The CN3e also features large, hard key caps,  1,8 metre drop specification, and tolerance for a wide range of operating temperatures.
Andrew Fosbrook, Managing Director of ProScan comments, "With mobile deployments growing in scale in southern Africa, so does the need for standardisation. The ability to seamlessly port applications across product families, extend centralised management, provision utilities and leverage a common suite of accessories are critical purchase criteria. The Intermec CN3 Series, comprising the CN3 and new CN3e, embraces these requirements, further reducing Total Cost of Ownership for our customers.
"Because the CN3e provides access to information at the point of work, it is ideally suited for direct store delivery, pick up and delivery, in-transit visibility and in-cab mobile applications. With intelligence at their fingertips, mobile workers can tap into the information they need to work most effectively and efficiently."
The CN3e gives customers mobile RFID read/write functionality through the optional snap-on RFID handle, enabling them to meet their current and future application requirements. The CN3e runs Windows Mobile supporting direct push wireless email for real-time connectivity with corporate networks. For in-premise use, the CN3e’s support for Cisco Compatible Extensions (CCX) ensures seamless interoperability in Cisco infrastructures.
