Product Release: Honeywell Transforms Distribution Center Operations with New Technology Unveiled at 2014 Pack Expo International

Hands-free Wearable Solution and Compact Vehicle Mount Computer will be on Display Giving Customers a Glimpse into the Future of Distribution and Warehousing

FORT MILL, S.C. – Nov. 3, 2014 – As distribution center operators look ahead to stay competitive in 2015 and beyond, Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced two new innovative products designed to boost operations – a versatile hands-free wearable solution engineered to drive efficiency, productivity and accuracy inside the four walls of the warehouse, and the Thor™ CV31 vehicle mount computer, combining the latest computing technology into a compact enclosure that minimizes driver obstruction. Both products will be on display at the 2014 Pack Expo International in Chicago from Nov. 2–5, 2014, in the Honeywell booth #10534 at McCormick Place.

"Distribution center operators are looking for the most flexible, application-expandable and future-proofed solutions," said Bruce Stubbs, director of industry marketing, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility. "With innovative technology like wearable devices and compact vehicle mount computers, Honeywell is able to deliver to small and large customers worldwide the solutions they need to keep up with the pace and competition of business today and well into the future."

Honeywell Wearable Solution
An interactive display at the booth will feature the new wearable device – a hands-free, wrist-mounted version of the Dolphin™ 70e Black mobile device (buy here from Legacy Technology Services) specifically designed for warehouse operations including picking, packing and shipping.

  • For information technology leaders looking for the benefits of hands-free operations but who cannot afford to re-engineer their devices, the Honeywell Wearable Solution, based on the Dolphin 70e Black, is a cost-effective option that allows the use of a general-purpose device for a wide variety of enterprise applications;
  • Featuring a more comfortable and hygienic armband than conventional wearables, the Honeywell Wearable Solution is designed to be worn for extended periods of time and be shared easily between workers. With its large display, flexible touchscreen keypads, Windows® Embedded Handheld 6.5 operating system architecture and support for tethered and BT ring scanners, the Wearable Solution is ideally suited to give workers the freedom of movement to maximize workflow productivity;
  • The Honeywell Wearable Solution incorporates a valuable combination of ergonomics, ruggedness and large screen size to empower workers with the hands-free convenience to handle more tasks with fewer disruptions to workflow;
  • The Honeywell Wearable Solution will begin shipping globally in December.

Thor CV31 Vechicle Mount Computer
Also featured at the show is the Thor CV31 vehicle-mount computer (buy here from Legacy). Suited for warehouse operations, the Thor CV31 displays supply chain workflow information in a manner that is easily seen, within reach, yet never in the way.
