June 2007 – Gamma Solutions are proud to introduce the Intermec CK32IS handheld computer, which provides industries like chemical, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, grain, textile and mining, a powerful, intrinsically safe, extremely rugged handheld computer. The Intermec CK32IS will carry the most extensive list of global hazardous environmental ratings — including ATEX and IEC at launch, UL shortly thereafter — of any handheld computer, so it can be deployed anywhere in the world.
The Intermec CK32 I-Safe Handled Computer was designed from inception for hazardous environments, meeting the most stringent requirements not only for flammable gases, vapors, liquids, but also for dust, fibers and flyings. The mobile computer has been ATEX-certified for use in Zone 0 (gases) and Zone 20 (dusts and fibers) 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(R) 5.0-based handheld computer features a fast Intel(TM) XScale(TM) 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, walkietalkie applications, and digital recording applications.
The Intermec CK32IS is designed for use in any country right out of the box. The device comes localised in worldwide English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Thai (character set only) languages, and is compliant with the European Union’s RoHS and WEEE regulations.
As part of Intermec’s complete family of rugged AIDC products designed and manufactured for demanding environments, the Intermec CK32IS supports all the leading industry standards, including Cisco Client Extensions(R) (CCX), Wavelink Avalanche Remote Device Management, Wi-Fi(R), .NET, Java and the Intermec Developer Library. It also supports Intermec’s SmartSystems(TM) Foundation, which provides a single, integrated environment for hands-free deployment and management of devices located anywhere in the enterprise — on-site or remote.
The ATEX/IEC-certified Intermec CK32IS is available worldwide now; units with UL certifications will be available in June.
