TC8000 Touch Computer

A revolutionary design delivers revolutionary productivity gains... one more hour, per worker, per shift.

What makes the TC8000 so special? Everything. It’s the ground-breaking all new warehouse mobile computer designed to deliver revolutionary productivity increases in the warehouse. In fact, it saves 14%* per worker versus the traditional form factors. And it’s the only device on the market that simplifies it all — how your workers physically use the device and interact with your warehouse application. The TC8000 minimizes motion with an innovative scan angle that eliminates the thousands of times your workers need to tilt their device to see the screen. We integrated flexible handheld and hands-free scanning for an extra productivity boost — another industry handheld first. It’s an amazing 33 percent lighter than the traditional device to minimize fatigue. And then we did something completely unprecedented by a device manufacturer — we integrated a tool that allows you to automatically transform your legacy Terminal Emulation (TE) “green screens” into elegant, graphics-based All-touch TE screens that are not only highly intuitive, but also dramatically reduce the number of interactions required to complete a task — no coding and no modifications to your host application are required. The result? Less time to complete the job and increased productivity. The TC8000 — the next big thing in warehouse mobility, only from Zebra.

TC8000 Touch Computer

Superior Ergonomics for Superior Productivity and Worker Comfort

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

Mx — Making Android a More Robust Enterprise-class OS

Mobility Extensions (Mx) adds features that make AndroidTM a more robust enterprise-class OS, minimizing support time and maximizing worker productivity and device uptime by providing better control of mobile devices, application access and Wi-Fi performance and security.

Rugged and Ready for Your Warehouse

The super-rugged design is built for the challenging warehouse environment. With our most extreme impact ratings, the TC8000 operates reliably, even after 2,000 consecutive hits when tumbling and multiple 8 ft./2.4 m drops to concrete. The TC8000 is sealed, ready to handle jetting water and dust. And the TC8000 is built to handle constant temperature swings between extreme heat and cold — ideal in outside yards.

Triple-shift Battery Power and Unsurpassed Battery Management

With the largest battery in its class, the TC8000 has ample power for three shifts. The PowerPrecision+ battery provides extensive battery metrics that make it easy to spot and retire aging batteries that can no longer hold a full charge. And the battery can be changed in seconds — without powering down.

Capture Multiple Barcodes and Entire Forms with a Single Scan with SimulScan

SimulScan makes it easy to capture labels on boxes and pallets that contain many barcodes, plus text fields, check boxes, signatures and more on printed forms.

An Industry First — Hands-free Proximity Scanning with a Handheld Device

The imager can be automatically triggered by the proximity sensor, whether the TC8000 is worn in the hip holster, on the shoulder strap or in the cart or desktop mount. 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 Barcode Scanning Options

If you need long range 1D/2D scanning, handle all your scanning needs with the extended range SE4850. Capture barcodes from 3 in./7.62 cm to 70 ft./21.4 m away — up to 60% closer and 35% farther than the competition. And with an industry-leading field of view, wide 4 in./ 10.16 cm wide barcodes can be captured at just 7 in./17.78 cm — nearly one third of the distance of competitive devices. Our SE4750 SR and MR imager are ideal for standard and mid-range scanning. Both the SE4850 and SE4750 offer Zebra’s proprietary PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology for unparalleled performance on just about any type of data imaginable. And our ‘tried and true’ 1D SE965 engine offers Adaptive Scanning technology that delivers the widest working range in its class. All options capture barcodes in practically any condition.

Transform “Green Screens” to All-touch Screens — No Coding or Host Modification

All-touch TE gives the front end of your Terminal Emulation apps a smart and intuitive touch interface, automatically — and your legacy TE green screens are always available to workers at the press of button. Create custom keyboards for different application screens to simplify data entry. And All-touch TE is pre-loaded and pre-licensed, ready to boost productivity right out of the box.

Advanced Touchscreen Technology for Flexible Data Input

With our industry leading touch screen technology, workers can use a finger, a stylus or a gloved finger to interact with your apps, complete with multi-touch support.
