CK61 Mobile Computer


ComputerPower, Strength, and Speed

Intermec’s CK61 mobile computer provides

everything required by the most demanding

environments; a rugged design, all-day

battery capacity, next generation processor

technologies, and non-volatile storage

combine to provide years of reliable

service. The Intermec CK61 does it all.

Rugged Design

The CK61 utilizes a magnesium top

cover and tough rubber bumpers at

each corner to achieve extremely

rugged environmental specifications.

To ensure years of trouble-free

service, the case is sealed against

water and dust to IP64 standards and

can withstand repeated 6’ drops.

Data Storage

Onboard non-volatile memory called

persistent storage, preserves

applications and databases even if

the batteries become depleted. An

additional 128MB persistent storage, an

exclusive feature of the CK61, enables

storage of large enterprise databases

and applications. The CK61 also offers

an SDIO card slot supporting removable

storage cards, which allows easy

recovery of data from a damaged

unit or even more onboard capacity

for the largest databases.

Compatibility and Flexibility

The CK61 is available with either

Microsoft® Windows® CE 5.0 or Microsoft

Windows Mobile™ 5.0 software for

Pocket PC. Microsoft Windows CE

provides significant flexibility to those

customers who wish to control the

user experience; Microsoft Windows

Mobile offers a standard platform

which can easily be applied across the

enterprise. Both operating systems

are supported by advanced software

development tools as well as Intermec’s

Developer Library, providing easy

integration of unique hardware

capabilities into custom applications.

User Interface

The QVGA resolution display features a

touch screen, allowing the CK61 to run

both text-based and graphical interface

applications. Mobile workers are able to

quickly enter large amounts of data

using the numeric keypad featuring

large, easy-to-use keys and excellent

tactile feel. Suitable for both one- and

two-handed input, the keypad is

designed to last the life of the unit.


The CK61 provides multiple ways in which

data may be exchanged between the

handheld computer and other devices.
