CipherLab's RK25, an Android rugged mobile computer, is being used in a logistics warehouse to deal with product receiving and dispatching. Workers scan barcodes of incoming products to register them in the system before receiving indication from its Warehouse Management System (WMS) telling them where to store the products. Also, before these products are shipped out, workers will use the RK25 to scan barcodes on order forms and know where to find the right products to load onto delivery trucks. The RK25 offers reader versatility with a linear imager, 2D imager and a mid-range 2D imager, giving it the ability to read long distance barcodes from over 4 meters away. The agile capturing ability makes the barcode reading process fast and easy. It fulfills the large volume data collection demands in the warehouse. Furthermore, its rugged industrial design provides durability to sustain harsh environments, for example, it will continue to function in the cold environment in Jilin province in the north eastern part of China. In fact, the operating temperature range of the RK25 is from -20°C to 50°C. Besides that, Its compact 292g lightweight curved grip reduces extended usage fatigue while offering workers in the warehouse comfortable one-handed operation.
