The 8515 – The Compact, Vehicle Mount Computer

Compact Power
Warehouses and ports. Manufacturing plants and airports. Think tight deadlines and even tighter spaces -- especially on the forklifts and trucks themselves. Fixing a bulky computer to these just isn’t an option.
Unless it’s the compact 8515. This rugged, lightweight vehicle mount computer gives you all the intelligence and connectivity you need in a very small package…

Smart, small, tough

Drop into any port or warehouse at any time of day –
you’ll see an army of forklifts zipping in and out of tight spaces with inches to spare. Which means finding a vehicle mount computer powerful enough to do the job without being a practical hindrance is always a problem.
Until now. The 8515 is incredibly compact and

Soit never makes a nuisance of itself. And it’s packed
with features to make workers’ lives easier. Which means productivity never drops, all shift long.
The 8515 is just as happy staying put as it is on the move.
So you can use it as a fixed-mount terminal, making it
perfect for data collection in retail.

Keeping it tidy

The 8515 works hard and keeps its head down. It never breaks the forklift operators’ line of sight. And it never compromises durability or performance. It boasts a razor-sharp, 640 x 480 full-screen 6.4” VGA color display that supports a huge range of applications. And you can read the bright, touch-sensitive display in almost all lighting.

It’s packed

The Windows®-based 8515 is crammed to the hilt with technology. It features an XScale processor, together with WiFi and Bluetooth® connectivity.
If you want to plug in the peripherals, take your pick. It comes with two USB host ports and one RS232 serial port. So it’s more than ready for your bar code scanners, printers and RFID readers.
And it’s packing a full PC-style alphanumeric keyboard and 10 dedicated function keys which are ergonomically perfect located around the display for flexible and accurate data entry: part of what we call Natural Task Support™.

Talk to me


The 8515 supports a two way speaker/microphone with Push-To-Talk capability. Use Voice over IP to keep in contact with the truck operator in the warehouse. He can inform you immediately if anything hinders him from being productive.
Busy, constrained workplace? Bring it on.
