Intermec (Booth 1318) introduced two new vehicle-mount computers designed to integrate with any lift truck. These new offerings represent the first vehicle-mount computers certified to offer Vocollect voice-directed work.

“These new vehicle-mount computers are built to withstand our customers’ most challenging environments and to deliver fast, reliable and secure connection to warehouse management systems,” said Earl Thompson, Intermec senior VP for the mobile solutions business unit.

The CV41 vehicle-mount computer features an 8.4-inch LED backlit display that reduces visual obstruction during forklift operations, simplifies installation compared to full-screen devices, and supports an optional brighter outdoor display. It is the only Vocollect voice-enabled, vehicle-mount computer running Microsoft Windows CE 6.0.

The CV61 features a larger 12.1-inch LED backlit touchscreen display that is easy to read in dimly lit or outdoor environments. Like the CV41, the CV61 features the same optional Vocollect voice capability.

Both computers include a CANBUS interface to support forklift fleet management applications, including Crown’s InfoLink fleet management solution.

Modex 2012 is scheduled to be held February 6-9, 2012 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2012 coverage.
