TC15 Mobile Computer

Rugged, the right features, the right price — from a leader you can trust

The on-demand economy is creating an ever-increasing volume of orders that need to be delivered at ever-increasing speeds — including same day. To address this challenge, workers at every point in the supply chain need to be able to easily access and collect information. You need a device that is designed for many different environments for different types of jobs — from transportation and logistics to retail. Introducing the device that can address it all — the TC15 mobile computer. You get the features workers need to complete tasks faster, with flawless accuracy. A rugged design that performs reliably inside facilities as well as out in the field. The power to seamlessly support many workflow applications. An extra-large 6.5 inch screen to see more information — with less scrolling. Full shift battery power. Consistently reliable scanning. Unmatched ergonomics. All in a proven device with proven technology — and a new level of affordability..

Built to last — yet less than the total cost of a cell phone

The rugged device designed for durability — and comfort

The TC15 is built for business from the inside out. It’s waterproof, dustproof and drop-proof — surviving drops to concrete, one of the most challenging surfaces. Use it in the blazing heat or freezing cold, out in the rain or snow. Two of the most vulnerable features — the display and scanner window — are reinforced with a scratch-resistant glass with a beautiful surface. Are your environments more demanding? Just add the optional rugged boot for even more durability.

While your business will benefit from the cost-saving rugged design, your workers will benefit from its extremely ergonomic design. In a device with a large 6.5 in. screen, balance is crucial — Zebra’s award-winning Industrial Design team optimized the weight distribution so your users will find holding the TC15 virtually effortless. And all touchpoints have been thoughtfully created — from rounded corners, button size and location to a specially designed wave texture on the back to enable a solid grip.

Costs much less to own than a cell phone1

Consumer cell phones require more frequent maintenance and device replacements due to lack of durability — and it shows in the total cost of ownership. While consumer cell phones can cost as little as half of their rugged counterparts, over five years, the average consumer cell phone will cost nearly 2.5x more in operating costs, 2.5x more in lost productivity and nearly 2x the IT support costs.1


Loaded with all the features your workers need to do business better — and faster

All the wireless connections your workers need to stay connected

5G delivers the super fast and reliable connections needed to maximize productivity — with less battery power. Enable two cellular networks with dual SIM card slots — ideal for workers who travel in areas that are served by multiple networks. Inside buildings, fast Wi-Fi gives workers a solid and dependable wireless connection. This Wi-Fi 6 ready device supports 8 x 8 sounding for extended performance, and Target Wake Time for improved power efficiency.2

Bluetooth 5.1 BLE delivers improved connection stability and easy pairing, providing workers with solid and dependable Bluetooth connections to headsets, mobile printers and more. And with NFC ‘one-tap’, workers can just tap to pair a device, check an ID card, verify a package on a loading dock and more.

World-class integrated scanning

Virtually every industry relies on crucial business data embedded in barcodes. But capturing barcode data with the camera in consumer smartphones is slow and cumbersome, requiring alignment of barcode and scanner — and an undamaged barcode. With the integrated omni-directional enterprise-class scanner, there’s no need to align barcode and scanner. Workers get split-second effortless point-and-shoot capture of virtually any barcode — including 1D, 2D and Digimarc — even if they are damaged, poorly printed or dirty. The scanner also captures images, enabling third party OCR applications to automatically capture text information, such as license plate data to streamline the ticketing process, information on labels to track shipments in a warehouse, and serial numbers in manufacturing to track and trace parts and equipment. And support for Unique Device Identification (UDI) barcodes enables better tracking and management of assets and equipment.

An exceptionally large 6.5 inch display

The large screen means more information and less scrolling. The display is easy to read indoors and outside — even in bright sunlight. It works when wet, even with gloves — ideal on rainy or snowy days. And it supports all the familiar gestures your workers already use on their personal cell phones, virtually eliminating the need for training.

The constant battery power your workers need

The 5000 mAh high capacity battery is more than you need for a full shift. With fast charging, batteries are 80 percent charged in less than two hours. And since the battery is removable, devices are never out of service — a dead battery can be replaced with a fully charged battery at any time.

The power to run all your applications — simultaneously

The advanced Qualcomm octa-core 2.2 GHz processor provides users with the fast response times they expect on all the apps they need — from GPS to the most data-intensive applications.

Take ultra-high resolution photos

Take sharp, detailed photographs for proof of condition and delivery, visual in-store merchandising audits to ensure quality and compliance and more with the 13 MP autofocus rear camera.

Resolve issues faster with video calls

Personalize your communications with video calls that also improve workflow efficiency and reduce errors. The TC15 enables workers to reach managers or a remote product expert for on-the-spot answers to questions customers may have about a product, improving the quality and speed of customer service. And field service technicians can get help from a remote expert technician to enable a repair on the first visit, eliminating the high cost of a second visit — and improving customer satisfaction.

Business-class accessories for easier device management

Charge the TC15 and a spare battery with the TC15 charging cradle — ideal for multi-shift work environments. If you charge devices in a backroom, you can connect as many chargers as you need with a snap-on connector. A quick-release hand strap provides a safe and secure grip. For more demanding environments, a rugged boot allows devices to handle a 5 ft./1.5 m drop. And you can charge the TC15 in the charging cradle with or without the protective boot.
