Honeywell Operational Intelligence 

Operational Intelligence is a centralized, cloud-based platform to manage the complete lifecycle, operational visibility and performance analysis of assets, people and tasks. With embedded hardware sensors designed into Honeywell products, the solution continuously extracts performance data that is periodically sent to the cloud for analysis. Operational Intelligence provides an intuitive user interface to your IT assets’ performance metrics and delivers actionable insights that bridge the gap commonly missed by Asset Management or Mobile Device Management solutions. Operational Intelligence is being presented by Doug Brown.

Honeywell PX940 Industrial Printer with Integrated Label Verification 

The PX940 series takes industrial printing to a new level of accuracy and simplicity by providing customers with error-free precision printing, increasing production efficiency and reducing operational costs. PX940 Industrial Printer is being presented by Paul Altman.

Honeywell introduces FlexRange™ Imager

The FlexRange scan engine features two complete optical paths, which, unlike competitive products, have no moving parts, enabling it to simultaneously capture near and far range images without latency. The two optical paths cover very short range to long range typical of warehouse pallet racks, often giving users the flexibility of using a single device for all use cases while enabling dual-image software applications that leverage dual narrow and wide-angle images such as scene validation. FlexRange Imager is being presented by Charles Dickinson.

Honeywell RT10 Rugged Tablet 

The RT10 rugged tablet is designed for rapid user adoption, minimized TCO and optimized device management. Whether you’re a supervisor or a shop floor employee, a manager or a maintenance worker, the RT10 is ready to fit into your daily workflow. RT10 Rugged Tablet is being presented by Charles Dickinson.

Honeywell Smart Talk 

Honeywell Smart Talk is a unified workforce communications application that tackles the problem of fragmented communications, with enterprise-grade security for voice calling, text and media messaging, and user presence – all from one device. Honeywell Smart Talk is being presented by Mike Miller.

Honeywell 8680i Wearable Mini Mobile Computer 

The 8680i Wearable Mini Mobile Computer is Honeywell’s most advanced compact, ergonomic, high-performance Bluetooth®-wearable scanning solution worn on one hand and designed to help businesses streamline high-volume workflows such as picking, sorting, putaway, and packing for increased speed and efficiency with every transaction. 8680i Wearable Mini Mobile Computer is being presented by Glen Aspens.

Honeywell Voice Guided Workflows 

Built to guide mobile workers throughout facilities, Honeywell Voice gets them where they need to be, when they need to be there. The solution is based on an ergonomic headset, wearable mobile device and advanced software that utilizes “text-to-speech” and “speech-to-text” technology (currently available in 41 languages). By converting warehouse management system information to speech, Honeywell Voice provides audible instructions to warehouse operators — directing them to the next location and guiding them through the required tasks or steps to complete processes, such as picking, inventory replenishment, maintenance and repairs. Voice Guided Workflows is being presented by Jon Danzak.

Honeywell VM1A Vehicle-Mounted Computer 

The Android™-based Thor™ VM1A combines all of the easy-to-use , easy-to-maintain features of the popular Thor VM1 and CV41 models, with all the advantages of Honeywell’s Mobility Edge™ platform to help accelerate provisioning and deployment, optimize performance and extend lifecycle for better investment protection and lower cost of ownership. VM1A Vehicle-Mounted Computer is being presented by Paul Altman.
