CK3 Series Mobile Computer


A broad range of data collection and communication features form the foundation for the Intermec CK3 mobile computer enabling it to adapt to a variety of in-premise applications to support businesses in their pursuit to improve their operational performance metrics, simplify IT support and control operating costs.

The 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, both today and in the future.

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.

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 Terminal Emulator (ITE) and Intermec Browser (IB) software. Designed and tested to optimize CK3 performance in emulation environments, ITE connects the CK3 to host applications using terminal emulation and features support for multiple host sessions, security, session persistence and a complete set of data collection options. Using IB, a data collection browser, web applications can leverage advanced CK3 imaging and RFID features while ensuring that user access is limited to pre-approved websites.

For fast and easy device deployment and maintenance, the CK3 also supports Intermec's SmartSystems™. 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 rigors 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.
