Honeywell Thor VM1

The mid-size Thor™ VM1 computer provides unprecedented flexibility for your supply chain operations. It combines a 20.32 cm (8 in) display with breakthrough innovations that deliver rapid value for your workflows.

In today’s supply chain, the only constant is change. Disruptions, whether short-term like a forklift failure, or long-term like a natural disaster, are a fact of life. The supply chains best prepared to adapt to these disruptions will use mobile computing technology that gives them greater flexibility.

With the Thor VM1 Vehicle-Mount Computer, you’ll get unprecedented flexibility and breakthroughs in supply chain productivity.

  • The Smart Dock delivers immediate savings on support and maintenance costs while maximizing efficiency – undock the unit from one forklift and redock it on another vehicle in seconds, dynamically shifting workers and computers as the workload changes.

  • The field-replaceable front panel reduces your capital and maintenance cost by integrating the two most wear and abuse prone components, the keyboard and touchscreen, into a user-replaceable part. A screwdriver is all you need. This feature also reduces capital costs by letting you substitute spare front panels for spare computers.

  • The ignition control allows you to set power management preferences to save startup time and extend vehicle battery life.

And the Thor VM1 computer lets you choose the options you need to maximize efficiencies in the most demanding environments – indoors, outdoors, in a warehouse, on a shop floor, or in intermodal facilities.
