New Honeywell Thor VM1A Vehicle-Mounted Computer Improves Forklift Operator Productivity for Distribution Centers
Forklifts and vehicle-mounted computers are essential tools in the day to-day workflows of warehouses, manufacturing, ports, and intermodal environments. Forklift operators and distribution managers need to keep products moving in and out all day long, without compromise, with an advanced mobile solution that can keep up with your inventory replenishment and outgoing orders, your workforce, and your IT infrastructure. You need the Honeywell Thor™ VM1A.
Built with many of the same easy-to-use, easy-to-maintain features of the popular Thor VM1 and CV41 models, the rugged, Android™-based Honeywell Thor VM1A vehcile-mounted computer also offers all the advantages of Honeywell’s Mobility Edge™ platform – including the ability to accelerate provisioning, application certification, and deployment across the enterprise.
The Honeywell Thor VM1A is upgradable from Android O to Android R, with extended security update support via Honeywell Sentinel to extend product lifecycle and maximize return on investment. The device’s advanced enterprise configuration and software support tools also simplify frequently repeated tasks such as unit setup and distribution of security and software updates.
Compact, ergonomic, and powerful, the Honeywell Thor VM1A vehicle-mounted computer has numerous breakthrough features designed to maximize productivity, minimize visual obstructions, and reduce or eliminate downtime.
Built tough for challenging forklift environments, the Thor VM1A includes a powerful Qualcomm® 660 processor, 2×2 MIMO WLAN connectivity, integrated keyboard, and large 8-inch touchscreen readable both indoors and out, keeping critical data accessible right from the forklift driver’s seat. An optional screen defroster is available for use in cold storage and freezer environments.
The Smart Dock feature enables users to quickly shift computers between vehicles, while the ignition control feature offers adjustable power management settings to save startup time and extend vehicle battery life, maximizing efficiencies and uptime.
The field-replaceable front panel allows enterprises to minimize investments in spare parts by substituting low-cost spare front panels for complete spare computers. In-house staff can quickly and easily swap out the front panel, fixing typical touchscreen or keyboard failures and rapidly returning units to service, saving valuable time and maintenance costs and lowering total cost of ownership.
