The HONEYWELL THOR VM1 vehicle-mount computer (VMC), the tenth generation of VMC developed by the company, provides unprecedented flexibility, and with it, breakthroughs in supply chain productivity.
The VM1 combines a fast 1.6GHz Atom Z530 processor, WWAN, WLAN, and Bluetooth® wireless connectivity, and a Microsoft® Windows CE 6.0 or Windows® Embedded Standard operating system, with three breakthrough innovations that can create immediate time savings and productivity gains.
Enables mounting and removal in seconds like a laptop dock but with the ruggedness and sealing required for industrial applications; maximizes efficiency by dynamically shifting workers and computers as the workload changes, while minimizing maintenance cost by enabling a computer to be shifted from one vehicle to another in 1/6 the standard time.
Reduces capital and maintenance cost by integrating the two most wear and abuse prone components, the keyboard and touchscreen, into a user-replaceable part; reduces capital costs by substituting spare front panels for spare computers.
Eliminates the maintenance expense and lost productivity caused by a dead vehicle battery; unit can be configured to automatically go into standby or hibernate at a selectable time after the ignition switch is turned off, saving time for associates while eliminating a point of concern for warehouse management.
