Intermec is now shipping the CK32IS handheld computer, which provides industries like chemical, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, grain, textile and mining with a powerful, intrinsically safe, extremely rugged handheld computer. The CK32IS is claimed to carry the most extensive list of global hazardous environmental ratings of any handheld computer, so it can be deployed anywhere in the world.
The CK32IS was designed from inception for hazardous environments, meeting the most stringent requirements not only for flammable gases, vapours, liquids, but also for dust, fibres and shavings. The mobile computer has been ATEX-certified for use in Zone 0 (gases) and Zone 20 (dusts and fibres) environments – the highest possible safety ratings, requiring double-fault protection of circuitry. In addition, the product’s accessories meet the latest associated apparatus certifications to provide the highest level of safety.
The Windows Mobile 5.0-based handheld computer features a fast Intel XScale PXA270 processor, 128 MB of DRAM memory and 64 MB of non-volatile Flash memory. It supports Intermec TE2000 terminal emulation software to run legacy applications and has a full suite of audio capabilities to enable interactive VoIP, walkie-talkie applications, and digital recording applications.
