Honeywell Dolphin CN80


Dolphin CN80 Mobile Computer

Rugged, Ergonomic Design – Built to Last

Whether you’re transitioning to touchscreen capabilities or you’re key-dependent due to the nature of your business, the Honeywell Dolphin™ CN80 handheld computer can help you improve the speed and accuracy of operations while positioning you for the future. This rugged, Android™-compatible handheld computer features full-touch capabilities plus real keys for fast data entry at high transaction rates even in severe settings.

Logistics, warehouse, and field mobility organizations alike are transitioning from devices built on Windows® to devices built on Android™ and from keypad-centric devices to full touchscreens. But many legacy applications have not yet been updated for this new touch-centric world and for many use cases, keys remain essential for data capture. Fortunately, there’s one ultrarugged mobile computer that helps bridge the gap. The Dolphin™ CN80 device offers both a large touchscreen and a choice of numeric or QWERTY keypad, allowing users to pick the best input method for their environment today, and also be ready for the touch-centric applications of the future.

Honeywell CN80 is used in the following industries: Logistics, Warehousing, and Field Mobility.


Mobility Edge™ Hardware and Software Platform

Common hardware and software platform delivers enhanced operational efficiency and reduced TCO. Deploy the same applications on multiple products across your enterprise.

Forward-Compatible. Future-Proof.

Support for five Android generations – N through R. Customers using Windows®-based operating systems can migrate to Android without sacrificing reliability, performance, or management features.

Best of Both Worlds – Keys and Touchscreen.

If you have high transaction rates, an environment where workers wear gloves, or applications or workers accustomed to working a certain way, keys are a necessity. The Dolphin CN80 offers productivity with a real numeric or QWERTY keypad for fast and easy data entry plus a full touchscreen for new or future application migration.

Best of Both Worlds – Keys and Touchscreen.

Enhanced 1D/2D scanning/data capture options with read ranges of 0.15m to 15.2 m (6 in to 50 ft) typically required in today’s warehouses. Optional scan handle for flexibility to switch between handheld and pistol grip operations.

Rugged, Ergonomic Design – Built to Last

Designed to withstand the harshest environments and the toughest users, the Dolphin CN80 minimizes downtime and lost productivity with extreme longevity. Withstands 2.4m (8 ft) drops to concrete and 2,000 1.0 m (3.3 ft) tumbles. IP65/IP67 ratings against dust/water spray and even immersion. Cold storage and non-incendive options available.

Long Battery Life Drives Productivity

Long shifts, extended talk-times, and heavy GPS usage are no match for the Dolphin CN80. Long battery life minimizes workflow interruptions and drives efficiency.
