Intermec, now a part of Honeywell Scanning & Mobility has introduced its latest range of rugged mobile computers offering a choice of two OS options on the same device.
Delivering industry-leading performance, flexible application support and superior user experience, the Intermec CN51 rugged mobile computer offers a choice of Android or Windows operating systems. This next-generation mobile computing solution is primed for use in direct store delivery, transportation and logistics, and field service operations.
Peter Fehl, vice president for global marketing at Honeywell Scanning & Mobility explains the industry-leading CN51 offers support for both Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 and Android 4.1, underscoring their commitment to innovation and ability to meet the diverse needs of a global workforce.
Designed to offer a superior user experience, the CN51 features a large, multi-touch, outdoor-readable screen providing ample room for application viewing with less scrolling for greater productivity, as well as more space for capturing signatures.
Its state-of-the-art smart battery technology delivers industry-leading battery life that lasts through a full 12-hour shift and beyond without interruption to replace or recharge. The CN51 is also the perfect migration option from the current CN50, offering improved processor and area imager performance, while still maintaining accessory compatibility with existing CN50 installations.
The CN51 is equipped with a voice-capable Flexible Network radio for added flexibility, allowing the same device to operate on a CDMA or UMTS wireless network in North America. With the ability to switch networks on-the-fly, enterprises with large, geographically-dispersed workforces can rely on the CN51 to meet changing coverage needs and ensure anytime, anywhere access to business-critical information.
The new CN51 is available with Intermec’s EA30 or EA31 high performance imagers for optimal reading of 1D and 2D barcodes in various conditions, including low light scanning environments. The mobile computer’s superior motion tolerance and snappy scanning help eliminate delays or user frustration during scan intensive applications, ultimately improving worker productivity.
Key features of the Intermec CN51 rugged mobile computers include a 5-megapixel colour camera combined with Intermec’s cutting-edge image processing technologies; Mobile Document Imaging (MDI) and Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) capabilities providing a fast and reliable way to convert full-size paper documents or check payments into electronic files while on the road, transmitting directly from the point of capture to the back-office workflow; Intermec’s CloneNGo for breakthrough device provisioning that makes it easy to replicate a master configuration across an unlimited number of devices; Intermec SmartSystems Management Console to monitor key sub-systems including scanning, communications, and device health, to prevent issues before they impact operations; and Intermec’s Medallion Advanced and Support Services to help protect the user’s investment by reducing unexpected operational impacts of network communication issues or minimising device downtime.
