70 Series RFID Handheld Computers

70 Series RFID Handheld Computers

When it comes to accomplishing routine data-collection tasks with greater efficiency and accuracy, the 70 Series RFID mobile computers are the answer. These devices combine advanced RFID reading and a no-compromise design with best-in-class ruggedness, battery life, and ergonomics. Three models to choose from: CK70 RFID, CN70 RFID and CN70e RFID.

The no-compromise solution is now RFID enabled. The Honeywell 70 Series RFID family takes the no-compromise 70 Series’ already impressive feature set and adds passive UHF reading.

Adding RFID capability to 70 Series mobile computers has not come at the expense of size and weight. A fully integrated design utilizing Honeywell’s IM11 embedded module – along with an internally housed antenna – enables advanced RFID read performance while maintaining the already-compact form factor of the 70 Series. 

The result is a fully integrated mobile platform that exceeds typical RFID read range requirements, in a design that’s more compact and comfortable to use than competing devices.

The 70 Series RFID family is intelligently designed into three form factors:

  • CK70 RFID
  • CN70 RFID
  • CN70e RFID

And because they’re built on a singular core platform, you get the benefits of specialized devices with the reduced complexity and cost savings that come from adopting a common platform.

With its single-platform approach, the 70 Series RFID line is unique in its ability to deliver the benefits that come with one architecture, one software build, one set of peripherals, and one charging system. It brings simplicity to the frequent tasks of software updates, training new employees, managing spares pools, and charging devices.
