Zebra Technologies has introduced ‘TC8000 warehouse mobile computer,’ which the company says will result in significant gains in productivity and decrease worker fatigue. This is accomplished via an ergonomically re-architected device concept designed to optimize workflows and reduce repetitive motions, saving an hour per worker per shift.
The ground-breaking all new warehouse mobile computer is designed to increase productivity in the warehouses, saving on average 14 per cent per worker versus the traditional form factors. And it’s the only device on the market that simplifies it all — how workers physically use the device and interact with warehouse application.
The TC8000 minimizes motion with an innovative scan angle that eliminates the thousands of times your workers need to tilt their device to see the screen.
“We integrated flexible handheld and hands-free scanning for an extra productivity boost — another industry handheld first. It’s an amazing 33 per cent lighter than the traditional device to minimize fatigue. And then we did something completely unprecedented by a device manufacturer — we integrated a tool that allows you to automatically transform your legacy Terminal Emulation (TE) “green screens” into elegant, graphics-based All-touch TE screens that are not only highly intuitive, but also dramatically reduce the number of interactions required to complete a task — no coding and no modifications to your host application are required. The TC8000 — the next big thing in warehouse mobility,” the company said.
Features of TC8000
Superior ergonomics for superior productivity and worker comfort
The new scan angle eliminates the constant tilting that traditional designs require to view the screen, increasing productivity by 14% through a 55% reduction in wrist motion and a 15% reduction in muscle effort.
Enterprise-class Android KitKat
Mobility Extensions (Mx) transforms Android to an enterprise-class OS, providing enterprise-class security, device management and data capture capabilities.
Rugged and ready for your warehouse
The super-rugged design is built for the challenging warehouse environment. With our most extreme impact ratings, the TC8000 operates reliably, even after 2,000 consecutive hits when tumbling and multiple 8 ft./2.4 m drops to concrete. The TC8000 is sealed, ready to handle jetting water and dust. And the TC8000 is built to handle constant temperature swings between extreme heat and cold — ideal in outside yards.
Triple-shift battery power and unsurpassed battery management
With the largest battery in its class, the TC8000 has ample power for three shifts. The PowerPrecision+ battery also provides extensive battery metrics that make it easy to spot and retire aging batteries that can no longer hold a full charge. And the battery can be changed in seconds — without powering down.
Capture multiple bar codes and entire forms with a single scan with SimulScan
SimulScan makes it easy to capture labels on boxes and pallets that contain many bar codes, as well as forms that might also contain needed text fields, check boxes, signatures and more.
An industry first — hands-free proximity scanning with a handheld device
The imager can be automatically triggered by the proximity sensor, whether the TC8000 is worn in the hip holster, on the shoulder strap or in the cart or desktop mount. Two modes are available — near for close-up scanning from near contact to 6 in./15 cm and far, from contact to 1.96 ft./60 cm.
Advanced bar code scanning options
Our SE4750 imager with proprietary PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology offers unparalleled performance on just about any type of data imaginable — from 1D and 2D bar codes to fully searchable and editable documents. Our SE965 engine provides best-in-class 1D scanning performance, with patented Adaptive Scanning technology that delivers the widest working range in its class. All options capture bar codes in practically any condition.
Transform “green screens” to elegant all-touch screens with no host modification or coding
All-touch TE gives the front end of your Terminal Emulation apps a smart and intuitive touch interface, automatically — and your legacy TE green screens are always available to workers at the press of button. Create custom keyboards for different application screens to simplify data entry. And all-touch TE is pre-loaded and pre-licensed, ready to boost productivity right out of the box.
Advanced touch screen technology for flexible data input
With our industry leading touch screen technology, workers can use a finger, a stylus or a gloved finger to interact with apps, complete with multi-touch support.
