Honeywell Thor VM2

The Thor™ VM2 computer is ideal for warehouse, port and yard process automation. It combines a 24.63 cm (9.7 in) display with design breakthroughs that deliver rapid value for your workflows.

Your supply chain workers can face rough conditions and unique challenges. With the Thor VM2 computer, they'll be able to adapt and respond, while improving workflow efficiencies and maintaining low costs.

The Thor VM2 computer adds another mid-sized display option to the Thor VM line with versatile features like programmable multi-function keys and WWAN connectivity for expansive outdoor operations. The VM2 computer is also built for easy application development. It supports multiple Windows-based operating systems and is compatible with many industry standard terminal emulation applications.

And like the Thor VM1 and VM3 computers, the VM2 device features design breakthroughs that deliver rapid value for your workflows.

  • 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. This feature also reduces 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.
