Where Rugged and
Sleek Meet
Intermec’s CS40 is designed specifically
for mobile field professionals who need
productivity and reliability beyond a
smart phone. The CS40 is Intermec’s
smallest rugged mobile computer. It
combines ruggedness, advanced 3.75G
voice and data communications, as
well as integrated high-performance
1D/2D scanning capability in smart
phone size and style. It is designed to
connect your mobile workforce to the
enterprise for real-time access to business
information and data exchange.
Running critical enterprise business
applications, the CS40 allows companies to
improve their business processes, expand
customer offerings, increase revenue and
reduce the cost and complexity of a field
mobility solution all at the point where
it’s needed most – on the front lines.
Drop the CS40 without Dropping
Intermec is a world leader in the design of
mobile computing devices that stand up to
the rigors of everyday use, and the CS40 is
no exception. Ruggedness is integral to the
CS40 design. It can withstand multiple 1.2meter drops to concrete on all corners and
all sides and is IP54 rated, which means it
is sealed against rain, moisture and dust.
The professional design of the CS40
provides optimal ergonomics and
consumer styling. However unlike
consumer-grade devices, the battery is
encapsulated in a single-rugged package
to prevent disengagement when the
device is dropped. In addition, the CS40
backlit key pad is wear-proof and the
touch panel glass has been chemically
strengthened to last the life of the device.
Integrated Scanning Without Compromise
The CS40 utilizes the proven Intermec
EA11 imager that provides a familiar
“laser-like” aimer and delivers high speed,
accurate 1D and 2D barcode reading in
any orientation. Ideally suited to the
expanding use of 2D barcodes, including
track and trace capability in symbologies
such as DataBar (replacing UPC and
EAN), the CS40 is the perfect fit for
inventory management, ordering, lighthandling delivery, and stock management
applications. The no-compromise design
also includes a high-performance 3 megapixel color camera with flash to easily
capture photos, make notations, and
transmit to the office for verification.
Superior Voice and Data Quality
With industry-leading cell phone
technology at its core, the CS40 has
outstanding voice quality and the
latest 3.75G wireless WAN radio to
deliver the fastest data and voice
communications available on UMTS
networks. The CS40 provides quick and
reliable data connectivity for uploading
large documents, real-time images or
synchronization with the enterprise
data base by utilizing high speed uplink
packet access (HSUPA) technology
and a high performance antenna.
Features That Go Further
The multiprocessor architecture of the
CS40 delivers high-performance and
supports robust features to meet the
demanding schedule of your mobile
workforce, all at low levels of power
consumption. This architecture ensures
that the CS40 standard battery is suitable
for an uninterrupted full shift of troublefree operation and maximum uptime
throughout the workday, even while
powering a bright 2.8 inch QVGA display
that’s easily viewed in full sunlight.
To simplify charging, the CS40 uses a
MicroUSB connector with a universal cell
phone charger to reduce the complexity of
device-specific charging cables. In addition,
the CS40 charging solution automatically
comes with four snap on plugs to enable
charging anywhere around the world.
The mobile professional can leverage
the integrated GPS radio to reduce drive
time and lower fuel costs by improving
navigation to new customer locations.
A built-in accelerometer allows the
CS40 to rotate the display based on the
orientation of the device, improving
the user experience and efficiency.
The CS40 features a Bluetooth® v2.1
EDR radio which provides simple, secure
wireless connectivity to headsets,
Intermec mobile printers and other
Bluetooth compatible devices. The
CCX v4 certified 802.11 radio enables
fast and secure voice communications
or end-of-day synchronization
with the enterprise network.
Ready for Business
With Intermec SmartSystems™ preloaded
on the CS40, IT Managers can quickly,
easily and securely provision, configure,
and deploy application software, device
settings, and policies for remotely located
CS40 devices all from the convenience
of their desk. SmartSystems™ software
also automatically stages system
and software updates, as well as
configuration changes, to keep on-going
system maintenance costs low, and your
CS40s performing in top condition.
As an added convenience, remotely
located mobile professionals can use
the SmartSystems ScanNGo over
WWAN capability to load the golden
configuration and application files
from their IT department by simply
scanning a barcode when they receive
their new or replacement device.
Software developers can access a
comprehensive software toolkit through
the Intermec Developer Library to simplify
application development and shorten
time to deployment. Additionally,
Skynax can be employed to supply
mobility support and connectivity
features like secure reliable data
communications, device management,
and customer specific business data
rules over any type of connection.
The CS40 is supported by a suite of
fully integrated system components
including peripherals and accessories.
Business Systems that Work
Intermec systems are designed to meet
the needs of the enterprise and incorporate
features that lower total cost of ownership.
To ensure seamless coverage and
protection of initial investment, Intermec
and its global network of partners provide
advanced support services from evaluation
and integration to implementation
and ongoing device maintenance.
