Intermec has developed what it says is the first handheld computer with integrated near/far area imaging technology, able to read virtually any label from distances of six inches to 50 feet. The CK31ex allows warehouse workers to consolidate their computing, data-capture and documentation needs in a single device, according to Intermec. It is the first device to integrate the Intermec Intellibeam EX25, a scan engine with auto-focus and near/far reading capability. It reads and decodes 1D and 2D barcodes, as well as composite and postal codes, in any orientation. It can also read barcodes printed on plain paper at long distances, eliminating the need for retro-reflective label media. The device allows users to capture images suitable for proof-of-delivery and documentation of damaged, expired or unsealed goods. In another company development, Intermec announced a printer trade-in program, whereby end-users can earn rebates of up to $525 per unit when they buy a new, qualified Intermec printer. The trade-in program runs through Dec. 1.
