Thor VM3: Honeywell’s Rugged Vehicle-Mounted Computer

Posted September 7, 2017

honeywell-thor-vm3-vehicle-mount-vm3w2f3a1bus06a-75bDisruptions in the supply chain can be costly for businesses, and in today’s business world it’s either you adapt or get left behind. One product that can help your business adapt and at the same time give you a significant competitive advantage is the Thor VM3 Vehicle-Mount Computer. The Thor VM3 comes with Smart Dock which delivers immediate impact savings on support and maintenance costs. The cost savings from the Smart Dock come as a result of all the maximized efficiency that allows users to undock the computer from one forklift and redock it on another vehicle in a matter of seconds. This helps the workers adapt as the workload changes throughout the day or week.  A field-replaceable front panel reduces your capital and maintenance cost by integrating two of the most wear and abuse prone components, the keyboard and the touchscreen, into a user-replaceable part all with the simple use of a screwdriver.

This Honeywell vehicle-mount computer has an IP66 rated design and was designed to withstand all the vibrations and shocks that is generally created when a forklift is in operation. Safety is also a big proponent of the Thor VM3 with a screen blanking option that restricts driver access to the screen when the vehicle is moving to comply with the highest safety standards. The rugged vehicle-mount computer was made to withstand multiple environments from dry goods to cold storage, indoors or outdoors, and in-premise or in intermodal facilities. The Thor VM3 comes with the Intel x86 architecture and Dual Core 1.5GHz processor that enable superior performance with data-intensive applications.

Five Things to Consider When Using Tablet Computers in Forklift Applications

Posted July 11, 2014

2014-07-10_1133Why Tablets and Purpose Built Forklift Mounted Computers Are Not Interchangeable

Tablet computing is one of the fastest-growing categories of consumer electronics and enterprise IT alike. The buzz is leading many businesses to explore new uses for tablet computers, and some are finding their way into evaluation trials on forklifts and other vehicle applications in the distribution center. With their large screens and available Windows operating systems, tablets can seem quite similar to the forklift-mounted computers that are widely used today. They can also be taken off the forklift and used on the floor, which some organizations find intriguing.

However, tablets should not be considered drop-in replacements for purpose-built forklift mounted terminals because there are several major differences between the product categories. If you are considering using tablet computers on forklifts, it is important to know these differences and how they may impact operations. Careful evaluation will highlight compromises in integration and everyday use.

LXE VX9 Förj Selected by MSC Home Terminal

Posted March 5, 2010

LXE VX9MSC Home Terminal, the largest container terminal in the port of Antwerp, is a 50/50 joint venture between PSA (Port of Singapore Authorities) and MSC (Mediterranean Shipping Company). Located at the Delwaide dock in Antwerp, it is the most important North European hub for MSC. The terminal’s vital statistics are impressive: a total surface area of 1.6 million m², a quay length extending to almost 3 km, and a total capacity of around 4.3 million TEU. It operates 24/7.

Not surprisingly, MSC Home Terminal is equipped with state-of-the-art handling equipment and controlled by high-performance IT applications. A wireless network was recently implemented. MSC Home Terminal decided to replace the aging narrow band system with a modern Wi-Fi 2.4 and 5 GHz network. At the same time the technical department wanted to launch a proactive maintenance system which would enable maintenance messages to be monitored and eventually sent to the straddle carriers. The messages would inform the drivers to bring their straddle carrier in for a service check. Various selection criteria were drawn up for the vehicle-mounted computers. At the top of the list was undoubtedly the ruggedness of the devices, closely followed by the readability and ergonomics of the screens. All teams of MSC Home Terminal were involved in the selection process, from management to dock workers.

A short list of three suppliers was drawn up and their devices were thoroughly tested by users for ruggedness in a tough industrial environment, ergonomics and screen readability. In addition, the technical department and the IT department looked closely at the technical specifications to ensure the selected device had all the necessary features for end-to-end monitoring of the straddle carriers. Finally, the decision was made for LXE’s VX9 Förj vehicle-mount computers. These are rugged, Windows XP-based mobile PCs with 12.1” touch screen display. Around 120 LXE VX9 Förj computers will be installed on straddle carriers at MSC Home Terminal. The Förj is implemented as a FAT client allowing it to communicate with an independent PLC and the TOS.
