Honeywell Thor vm3

Thor VM3 Vehicle-Mounted Computer

for the toughest distribution center environments, manufacturing facilities and freight operations

Disruptions in the supply chain are costly. Are you prepared to adapt? Organizations that are have a significant competitive advantage. Equipped with the Thor VM3 Vehicle-Mount Computer, you’ll be ready.

  • 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.

The Thor VM3 computer supports multiple Windows®-based operating systems, so integration and application development are simple as your business needs grow. Case picking, truck loading, putaway and replenishment… the VM3 computer equips you to get the job done more efficiently.

And the VM3 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.


  • Smart Dock feature enables mounting and removal in seconds, saving on support and maintenance costs while maximizing efficiency by allowing dynamic shifting of computers as workloads change.
  • A user field-replaceable front panel reduces maintenance costs by allowing users to service the most wear- and abuse-prone components themselves rather than returning them to the repair depot.
  • Built-in ignition control eliminates the maintenance expense and lost productivity caused by a dead vehicle battery.
  • The Intel® x86 architecture and Dual Core 1.5 GHz processor enable superior performance in data-intensive applications.
  • With support for multiple versions of Windows (including Windows CE), the Thor VM3 easily integrates into existing IT infrastructures while enabling an upgrade path for the future.
