Intermec's 70 Series is a new offering of ultra-rugged mobile computers, delivering a portfolio with unparalleled performance.

With 45 years of technology innovation as its foundation, the Intermec 70 Series nearly doubles Intermec’s mobile computer portfolio in one release.

It comprises four distinct products
that share
a common platform and capabilities.

These include the CN70 (field service, transportation and logistics), CN70e (direct store delivery/route accounting), CK70 (parcel delivery in courier, express and postal operations) and CK71 (manufacturing and warehousing).

All in the smallest and lightest form factors in their respective classes, each product is built to help businesses optimise resources to improve operational efficiency, support future growth, and deliver high customer satisfaction.

The 70 Series conquers daily operational challenges and streamlines productivity with its unique ability to offer one software build and one set of peripherals including the FlexDock Flexible Docking System.

The new scalable, modular docking system is equipped for all four form factors, saving space and reducing installation costs, while enabling businesses to future-proof their investment by only having to change docking cups with technology refreshes instead of purchasing new docking systems.

"Economic pressures are continually impacting technology buying cycles as businesses are looking for ruggedness, reliability and a total mobile solution that enables them to avoid detracting from core competencies," says VDC Research Analyst David Krebs.

"This next year will continue to see technology innovations empower mobile workers with intelligence to improve operations and lower bottom lines.

"The Intermec 70 Series addresses many of these critical next generation mobility requirements."

According to Intermec customer Parmalat Vice President Vince Campanelli, companies expanding their manufacturing and distribution capacity in the coming year will rely heavily on new technology to enhance their WMS and improve overall operations.

"The use of the CK71s on both the manufacturing and distribution floors will help streamline all aspects of our business, from shipping and receiving to inventory, picking and more," Campanelli says.

Featuring Windows Embedded Handheld, the 70 Series is the only platform to deliver the following feature benefits:

  • The most advanced 1D/2D scan engines, including:
  1. The new EA30 2D scan engine, with breakthrough motion tolerance performance and an advanced aiming system – delivering increased productivity and ease of use for scan intensive applications
  2. The new, 3rd generation EX25 near-far scan engine -
    increasing the distance and velocity of data capture
  • The industry’s first 802.11n dual-band WLAN – enabling better connectivity and communication for mobile workers
  • Six-foot drop spec across all temperatures, IP67 sealing, Gorilla glass touch panel, and indestructible keypad technology – delivering best in class ruggedness and reliability
  • On-board diagnostics and device health monitoring – improving service uptime and serviceability of large fleets of devices
