VC80x Vehicle Mount Mobile Computer

Put the power of Android in your warehouse vehicles

With the VC80x, you can easily migrate your material handling vehicles to the next generation platform for warehousemobility. Based on Android, the VC80x delivers a well-proven mobility platform with guaranteed security support you can count on. You can migrate from Windows to Android without changing the experience you have in place today — no re-training, re-configuration, or development is required. Designed for the most extreme environments, the VC80x can go everywhere your vehicle operators need to go — inside the warehouse, out in the yard, on the loading dock and even in the freezer. And only Zebra fortifies Android with powerful Mobility DNA features to accelerate every aspect of the warehouse, from goods in to ship out. The VC80x — ultra-rugged, Android-powered for a smarter warehouse.

VC80x Vehicle Mount Mobile Computer

Easily Transition to Android

Run the apps you have today — no changes needed

Since Ivanti Velocity is pre-loaded and pre-licensed, you can run your existing terminal emulation (TE) screens or HTML5 apps on the VC80x, right out of the box. Your workers get the same experience they have today — there’s no need to change your backend or re-train workers. And you can even transform your green TE screens to graphical, touch-based screens.

Ready for the next generation of Warehouse Management Systems

Since the VC80x is based on Android, you’re ready for the new wave of Android-based Warehouse Management Systems (WMS). With a powerful computing platform and flexible development environment, the VC80x can grow as your applications evolve.

Built-in future proofing and operating system support

Only from Zebra, LifeGuard™ for Android guarantees direct security updates for a total of 10 years from the release date, along with the ability to upgrade to future versions of Android1 for a superior lifecycle and return on investment.

Android Certified for guaranteed security and performance

Since the VC80x is an Android Certified device, you get the peace of mind that comes from knowing the device is secure and proven compatible with the growing number of Android apps built for the warehouse and enterprise.

A common platform for the warehouse and beyond

If you are using Zebra Android handheld and wearable devices in the warehouse, workers and IT will benefit from a common operating system and solution platform. You’ll get the same user experience and management tools across different form factors throughout the warehouse and supply chain.

Ultra Rugged Design

Built for extreme environments

The VC80x is ready for your toughest environments, with dust-and-water tight IP66 sealing, sealed connectors, and extreme temperature, shock and vibration testing.

Freezer-ready for the coldest supply chains

The VC80x is the only Android vehicle computer to offer true frost and condensation free operation with touchscreen, connectors, board and battery heaters, plus smart temperature sensors that automatically control heater and heating speed. 

An optional heated, rugged keyboard

If your workers prefer full keyboard operations, you can mount the optional rugged keyboard to the bottom of the VC80x. The keyboard’s internal heater ensures frost and condensation free operation in freezing temperatures, while drainage holes prevent heavy icing on the keyboard.

Fits in virtually any warehouse/material handling vehicle

Multiple mounting options, including standard RAM mounts combine with a compact size for an easy fit and easy mounting, even in the smallest vehicles. A 10-second quick release mount makes it easy to move the VC80x to another vehicle during vehicle maintenance or device repair.

Get Powerful New Zebra-Only Features with Mobility DNA 

Get more value out of your VC80x with Mobility DNA

Every strand of your mobility platform is simpler with Zebra’s Mobility DNA. Right from the start, you have the industry’s most comprehensive suite of mobility must-haves to simplify everything from deployment to application development and add new capabilities that boost worker productivity.

Doubles as a walkie-talkie

The VC80x can be configured with an optional speaker/microphone and includes Zebra’s Workforce Connect Push-to-Talk Express, a powerful free application that enables Push-to-Talk walkie-talkie style calling right out of the box.2

Easily control application and feature access

Prevent workers from using the VC80x for play with Mobility DNA’s Enterprise Home Screen. With this handy utility, you can easily pick and choose which apps and device features are accessible.

Built for Ease of Use

Easy to see indoors and outside

Choose either 1,000 NITs for a super bright screen that is easy to see outdoors or 400 NITs for indoor operation.

The computing power to do it all

The blazing fast 1.8 GHz hexa-core 64-bit processor with 4 GB RAM can run everything your vehicle workers need to take care of business, including multiple graphics-intensive applications.

Easy to hear in your loudest environments

The very loud front-facing speaker and instantly accessible volume control make it easy to hear scanner feedback and app notifications.

The fastest, most dependable Wi-Fi connections

With support for 802.11ac — plus software-switchable internal or external antennas, the VC80x delivers a superior voice and data experience. Enhanced roaming technology ensures that vehicle operators will stay connected to the apps and data they need as they move throughout the facility.

Programmable keys to simplify the most complex operations

With six direct and six soft programmable keys, multi-step processes can be executed with one key press, boosting throughput and productivity.

Add barcode scanning, voice and more

Different workers need different capabilities. That’s why the VC80x offers all the ports you need to add barcode scanners, mobile printers, a Push-to-Talk microphone and more.

Ready for voice-directed applications

With support for Wideband audio over Bluetooth, the VC80x is ready for voice-directed warehouse applications.

Instantly pair Bluetooth scanners

With a quick scan of the pairing barcode printed directly on the VC80x, workers can instantly pair their Zebra cordless scanner.

Configure your peripherals via SSI

Zebra’s rugged DS3600 Series and RS6000 Bluetooth ring scanner can be configured directly from the VC80x via SSI.

Repairable, right on the spot

Since the touch screen, bezel keys and UPS battery are field replaceable, there are fewer trips to the service depot — increasing device availability and your return on investment.
