TC8300 Touch Computer

The Revolutionary Enterprise Touch Computer With the Ultimate Android Platform

We took the TC8000, the world’s most revolutionary enterprise touch computer design, and made it better. You get the same innovative ergonomic design that minimizes motion to deliver a 14 percent boost in worker productivity. We added the ultimate in processing power and memory to give your workers the lightning-fast application performance they expect. The latest in WiFi and Bluetooth technology provides your workers with the fastest and most dependable wireless device and peripheral connections, maximizing availability — and value. Comprehensive data capture options let you capture it all — barcodes, direct part marks, entire forms and more. And when it comes to Android, the TC8300 simplifies every aspect of deploying Android in your warehouse — including migration and security as well as control over updates and Google Mobile Services.

TC8300

Get the Ultimate Android Platform

Android for Instant Familiarity

You get all the benefits of the latest version of Android, and your workers get a device they already know how to use — virtually eliminating training time and adoption curves.

Maximum Power for Maximum Application Performance

Get all the power you need to ensure superior performance on all your voice and data apps with the ultra-powerful 8-core processor, plus up to eight times the RAM and 32 times the Flash memory of the prior generation TC8000. And the advanced memory architecture delivers 10 times the typical memory lifespan.

Instantly Migrate Your TE Apps to Android, Right Out of the Box

With the TC8300, your users can simply use your existing TE apps — no backend modification or user training required. When you’re ready, you can easily turn your ‘green screens’ into Android touch-centric intuitive screens that boost productivity with All-touch Terminal Emulation (TE) — no coding required.

Longer WiFi Range and Speed — With Less Power

2x2 Multiple-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) technology allows access points to communicate with multiple devices simultaneously via pinpoint beamforming, boosting WiFi network capacity, speed and range. And processing is shifted from the mobile device to the access point, extending battery cycle time.

Bluetooth 5.0 — Twice the Speed, Four Times the Range, Less Power

Get better performance from your Bluetooth printers, headsets and more, while using less power for longer battery cycle times.

Triple-Shift Battery Power and Unsurpassed Battery Management

With the most battery power in this class, the TC8300 can run for three consecutive shifts without a battery change. And extensive battery metrics that make it easy to spot and retire aging batteries that can no longer hold a full charge.

A Lifetime Security Guard for Android

With LifeGuardTM for AndroidTM, you get the security updates you need to keep your Zebra Android devices secure every day they are in service — along with easy end-to-end control of the OS update process, plus support for the next two versions of Android (P and Q).

Provide the Ultimate User Experience

Superior Ergonomics for Superior Productivity and Comfort

The innovative scan angle eliminates the constant tilting that traditional designs require to view the screen and enter data, increasing productivity by 14% through a 55% reduction in wrist motion and a 15% reduction in muscle effort.

Flawless Capture of Every Barcode

Give your workers first-time every-time capture of virtually any barcode in any condition with our advanced scan engines. And with five options, there is a scan engine that is perfect for your apps. The SE4850 Extended Range Imager allows you to scan 1D and 2D barcodes over an unmatched range — from 3 in./7.62 cm to 70 ft./21.4 m away — up to 60% closer and 35% farther than the competition. The industry-leading field of view enables the capture of wide 4 in./ 10.16 cm wide barcodes as close as 7 in./17.78 cm — nearly one third of the distance of competitive devices. Our SE4750 SR and MR imagers are ideal for standard and mid-range scanning. The SE4750 DP enables dependable lightning-fast capture of virtually every direct part mark. And our ‘tried and true’ 1D SE965 engine offers Adaptive Scanning technology that delivers the widest working range in its class.

The Ultimate Rugged Design for the Ultimate Dependable Operation

The TC8300 is built for day-in day-out operation in even the most challenging warehouse environments. With our most extreme impact ratings, the TC8300 continues to run, even after 2,000 consecutive tumbles and multiple 8 ft./2.4 m drops to concrete. This dustproof device can also handle jetting water, refrigerated storage areas and constant temperature swings between extreme heat and subzero cold — ideal in outside yards. And Corning Gorilla Glass brings maximum scratch-and-impact resistance to two of the most vulnerable device components — the touchpanel and scanner exit window.

Industry-First Hands-Free Proximity Scanning with a Handheld Device

The proximity sensor automatically triggers scanning, whether the TC8300 is worn on the hip or shoulder strap or placed in a cart or on a desktop. Two modes are available — close-up scanning from near contact to 6 in./15 cm and from contact to 1.96 ft./60 cm.

Advanced Touchscreen Technology for Flexible Data Input

Give your workers the best touchscreen experience. The 4 in. display offers plenty of space for graphics-intensive intuitive applications. Users can interact with applications with a finger — even with a glove — or a stylus.

Ultra High-Resolution Photos, Videos and More

With the new optional 13 MP color rear camera, workers can capture detailed photos and videos to document proof of condition, proof of compliance and more.
