ProScan Enterprise Mobility, part of the ProScan Group, has introduced the new Intermec CK3 mobile computer, which delivers highly adaptable data and image capture capabilities, along with secure wireless communications, all in a highly durable handheld package.

The Intermec CK3 was specifically designed for in-premise applications to support businesses improve their operational performance metrics, simplify IT support and control operating costs.
Ideal for warehouse operations, the new Intermec CK3 packs a breadth of capabilities into a slim case, allowing users to easily and comfortably adapt to ever-changing data capture and communications needs.
With image capture, revolutionary imager-based scanning, optional RFID reader, speech and voice—all supported by 802.11a/b/g and Bluetooth radio communication—enterprises can avoid the expense and complexity of deploying a series of single-purpose devices to meet a variety of data collection and communication needs within their warehouses.
The CK3 embeds Intermec’s latest generation of imaging technology for outstanding scanning productivity and compliance to the most recent industry standards. Intermec imaging technology delivers fast 1D and 2D barcode scanning, unmatched performance on poor quality and damaged barcodes, and unmatched flexibility in scanning range.
Intermec has combined best-of-class platform components including the latest Microsoft embedded operating system, Windows Mobile 6.1, and Cisco Compatible Extensions (CCX) certification, ensuring seamless interoperability with Cisco wireless networks, to provide the robust architecture required to successfully extend enterprise applications to the CK3.
For seamless migration from prior Intermec computers and proven, out-of-the-box integration with many warehouse and retail systems, the CK3 is available with Intermec TE 2000 and iBrowse software.
For fast and easy device deployment and maintenance, the CK3 also supports Intermec’s SmartSystems. This allows users to easily connect computers to the network, configure settings, and install software remotely to lower IT effort and reduce total cost of ownership.
The CK3 meets rugged, standards-based environmental specifications for the rigours of warehouse use, but in a slim, well-balanced form factor appropriate for an in-store setting. The CK3 has uniquely combined an 89mm (3.5 in) QVGA display with a keyboard design comfortable enough for single-handed use.
Mobile worker productivity can be boosted when the CK3 is coupled with the convenience of Intermec mobile printers, such as the PB42 receipt printer and PB50 label printer.
The CK3 begins shipping in late October, and is the second Intermec rugged mobile computer to operate on Windows Mobile 6.1. The CK3 has a complete line of accessories including a variety of docking stations, attachable scan handle, and a snap-on IP30 handheld RFID reader.
