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 ultra-rugged 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.
Built on the Honeywell Mobility Edge™ platform, the Dolphin CN80 device offers an integrated, repeatable, and scalable approach based on a common hardware and software platform – unleashing customers from constraints faced today around integration and inflexible technologies without sacrificing enterprise security, reliability, performance, or management features.
Juggling multiple devices across the enterprise introduces time- and cost-intensive complexities for Enterprise IT to manage and maintain. The Mobility Edge platform enables customers to accelerate provisioning, certification, and deployment across the enterprise. The Dolphin CN80 device offers an extended product lifecycle across four generations of Android, from Android Nougat to Android Q, to maximize return on customer investment and provide a lower overall TCO. The device’s advanced enterprise lifecycle tools also simplify frequently repeated tasks such as software updates, training new employees, and managing spare pools.
Honeywell's CT40, CT60 and CN80 devices are part of the Android Enterprise Recommended program for rugged launch. Android Enterprise Recommended rugged devices must meet defined technical specifications and extended lifecycle support requirements that customers expect for their deployments," said David Still, managing director of Android Enterprise Business. "We created the program to help businesses choose Android devices and services that meet their needs and make IT's job easier. We're excited that Honeywell is collaborating with us on making this a reality."
To qualify for the stringent program, the devices must support multiple major operating system releases, deliver Android security updates within 90 days of release from Google for a minimum of five years, and be certified to protect against moisture and dust intrusion. In addition, the devices must offer bulk deployment options, including the Android zero-touch enrollment option, for easy setup and configuration.
"Retailers, distribution centers, logistics providers and postal organizations searching for rugged mobile solutions for their workers need confidence that their technology investments will have the flexibility to meet their evolving business needs," said Peter Howes, president of Honeywell's Productivity Products business. "Our Mobility Edge devices support multiple Android operating system versions and make it easy for customers to deploy mobility solutions across the enterprise."
The validated mobile computers are built on Honeywell's Mobility Edge™ Platform, which is a common hardware architecture and set of software tools to make deploying, updating and managing devices easier and more cost effective. Mobile computers built on the scalable platform support current and future versions of the Android operating system
Using Honeywell's system-on-module approach, customer IT departments can easily develop and certify a software application a single time before deploying to enterprise devices. This reduces time and costs associated with configuring and managing devices in the field.
You want to use Android devices in your enterprise, but Android was built for the consumer world — until now.
The ultra-rugged Dolphin CN80 mobile computer features a fast processor, advanced network connectivity, and enhanced 1D/2D scanning plus extended battery life lasting twice as long as previous generations to keep workers connected and productive throughout multiple shifts. The large, vivid, 106.7 mm (4.2 in) touchscreen display can be read easily indoors and out and used with finger, glove, or stylus – making it ideal for warehouse, cold storage, field mobility, and other challenging environments.
Features and Benefits
The Mobility Edge hardware platform and enterprise lifecycle tools drive an integrated, repeatable, scalable approach for accelerated and secure development, deployment, performance management, and lifecycle management.
The Dolphin CN80 device provides future- proof investment protection with support for four Android generations, starting with Android 7.1 (N). Security updates are also available for up to two years past the last Google patch via the Honeywell Sentinel service plan.
The large touchscreen with a 23-key numeric or 40-key QWERT Y keypad supports both legacy key-centric applications and newer touch applications. Keypads allow input in extremely harsh environments and optimize efficiency in all environments.
Ultra-rugged construction withstands multiple 2.4 m (8 ft) drops to concrete and 2,000 1.0 m (3.3 ft) tumbles. IP65/IP67 ratings against dust/water spray. Cold storage and non-incendive options support operation where other products can’t be used.
- Enhanced 1D/2D scanning/data capture with read ranges of 0.15 m 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.
