CK30 Mobile Data Collection Terminal

The Intermec® CK30 mobile data collection terminal continues the tradition of delivering on Intermec’s promise of rugged, reliable computing that will position your enterprise for the future with a combination of best-in-class features and functionality, such as thoughtful ergonomic design and integrated imaging options. With an unparalleled capability to perform legacy applications, the CK30 gives your enterprise investment insurance because it is the ideal bridge between the technologies you’re using today and what you will need tomorrow.

The CE .NET operating system minimizes memory requirements, reduces complexity and allows the application developer to completely customize the user interface that is appropriate or desirable.  CE .NET also supports mainstream application development tools for starting from scratch or upgrading existing applications. For client applications, the forward-looking .NET Compact Framework and Visual Studio .NET development tools will minimize any modifications between different .NET devices that might otherwise be required, including the Intermec® 700 Series Pocket PC mobile computer.

With CE .NET, Intermec has added features to the CK30 that enhance mobile data collection such as a simplified menu system tailored for key-based devices, display icons to provide intuitive, graphic-based status information to the operator and a data server for editing, filtering and routing to save programming time.

The Intel® XScale™ processor, running up to 400 MHz, provides more than enough power to drive the bright color display, a range of peripherals, repetitive scanning and wireless network traffic. It delivers the level of response time and throughput required for real time, mission-critical applications in warehousing, distribution, manufacturing operations and retail in-store management.

Because of the many configurations available, you can tailor the CK30 to your usage plans to support a wide range of applications. Three distinct keypad options – ranging from the simplified 42 key to a full 52 key alphanumeric keyboard – offer layouts for applications that range from shipping and receiving, put-away, picking, and cycle counting for the warehouse floor to price verification, stock management, and returns in the retail storefront. The CK30 applies superior technology and thoughtful design to all of these scan-intensive applications.

Because the CK30 can run Intermec TE2000 as well as third party terminal emulation clients, it enables unparalleled portability of legacy applications for mix-and-match operability with existing TE networks. In addition, the CK30 offers investment protection because it can run existing Intermec 2400 family applications with only a re-compile.

The CK30’s Wi-Fi® certified 802.11b/g radios, including a CCX (Cisco) Program certification*, insure consistent performance by providing the best available wireless network throughput and reliability. For off-line applications, the CK30 batch model readily fits into a single or 4-bay communication dock with USB, RS232 or Ethernet host connectivity.

Security features of the CK30 are second to none with support for traditional WEP and the new Wi-Fi WPA standard, as well as full 802.1x compliance including the Windows standard EAP-TLS and PEAP, EAP-TTLS and the compatibility with many existing networks with LEAP support.  Government users can select the FIPS security standard, also available to commercial users for increased security.

The user-tested ergonomic design of the CK30 has rendered a lightweight and uncommonly well-balanced device that reduces stress and fatigue during extended work sessions. Its sculpted back case is shaped to comfortably accommodate any hand size. An optional user-installable and removable pistol grip handle is ideal for highly repetitive scanning situations or accommodating user preference.

An additional design feature of the CK30 includes a high capacity lithium-ion battery “back” directly integrated into the shape of the computer, so users can not only expect at least a full shift of usage without having to change the battery, but also can avoid the complications of a battery door.  Intermec power management software ensures the longest possible battery life between charges.
