Intermec introduces 730 I-Safe Pocket PC for use in hazardous environments
Intermec Technologies Corp. has introduced the 730 I-Safe (Intrinsically Safe) Pocket PC, UL-certified to be safe for use in potentially explosive environments. The 730 I-Safe allows companies in industries such as pharmaceutical and petrochemical to standardize on one computing platform for both hazardous and non-hazardous environments, simplifying device management.

The 730 I-Safe is UL certified for Division 1 (where hazards are always expected to be present), Class 1 (environments with gases), Groups C (ethyl ether, ethylene, carbon monoxide, nitromethane, or similar) and D (acetone, ammonia, butane, ethanol, methane, natural gas, propane, gasoline, or similar) usage. UL certifies products for use in the U.S. and Canada.

The 730 includes built-in wireless LAN and Bluetooth connectivity and a Lithium-Ion battery that supports a full shift's work. It also has an SD card slot that enables the use of removable storage cards, providing more memory for large databases.

Based on an Intel XScale PXA255 CPU (400 MHz), the 730 comes with 64MB RAM, and a 240x320 pixels, 89mm (3.5 in) diagonal, 64 K colors display. Its Windows Mobile software makes it easy to connect to wireless networks, including enhanced e-mail capabilities and is designed to encourage platform innovation through well established SDK and .Net development support.

The 730 I-Safe incorporates the EV10 high-performance scan engine based on Intermec's VISTA scanning technology. The EV10, the industry's first bi-linear CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensor to use state-of-the-art active pixel sensor (APS) technology, combines compact size with exceptional scanning performance. Its high scan rate (200-500 scans per second) and excellent range (depth of field up to 50 centimeters/19 inches) allows it to read any type of bar code, even poorly printed, damaged, wide or high density, and operate optimally in any lighting conditions.

The 730 I-Safe is part of a suite of Intermec products designed for use in hazardous environments, which includes scanners, mobile computers and wireless access points. It will be available for delivery in Q2.
