Honeywell Thor VM2 Vehicle Mount Computer Features

  • Smart Dock: Enables mounting and removal in secondslike a laptop dock but with the ruggedness and sealingrequired for industrial applications; maximizes efficiencyby dynamically shifting workers and computers as theworkload changes, while minimizing maintenance costby enabling a computer to be shifted from one vehicle toanother in 1/6 the standard time
  • Field-Replaceable Front Panel: Reduces capital andmaintenance cost by integrating the two most wearand abuse prone components, the keyboard and touchscreen, into a user-replaceable part; reduces capital costs by substituting spare front panels for spare computers
  • Ignition Control: Eliminates the maintenance expenseand lost productivity caused by a dead vehicle battery;unit can be configured to automatically go into standbyor hibernate at a selectable time after the ignition switchis turned off, saving time for associates while eliminatinga point of concern for warehouse management

Solidifying Honeywell’s position as the leader in vehicle-mount computing, the Thor VM2 builds on the best-in-class Thor VM1 that was created specifically to address the unique challenges of supply chain applications.

Ideally suitable for warehouse, port and yard process automation, the Thor VM2 introduces an additional form factor option granting greater flexibility which is emphasized by its 9.7” XGA display, programmable multi-function keys, and WLAN and WWAN connectivity. Available with Microsoft Windows CE 6.0, Windows 7 Pro, Windows Embedded Standard 7 and Windows Embedded Standard 2009 operating systems and compatible with many industry standard terminal emulation and web browser applications including the popular Honeywell RFTerm™ TE, the Thor VM2 is built for simple and easy application development and system integration.

The same key features that have made the Thor VM1 an overwhelming success are in VM2. Delivering laptop-like simplicity, the Smart Dock capability allows for the separation of the computer from the power supply empowering users to seamlessly migrate from vehicle to vehicle and reducing the required number of computers. Further, the field-replaceable front panel enables single-tool touch screen repairs, which significantly minimizes downtime and maintenance costs resulting from wear and tear at the most common breaking point. Lastly, the power management settings that accompany the ignition control feature virtually eliminate dead vehicle batteries and the subsequent productivity losses.

The supply chain industry requires workers to function in rough conditions where unique challenges exist. As a result, it is important to incorporate the highest efficiency while maintaining low cost. With the unique features in Thor VM2, businesses are able to address and respond to these versatile issues as they occur, dramatically improving operations.
