Honeywell announces new Dolphin Black

Tuesday, October 23, 2012 10:19:19 AM America/New_York

The rugged smart device was created for traditional auto-identification and data capture customers who want something sleeker and lighter than a typical AIDC industrial device, but need something tougher than a consumer-grade phone. The Dolphin 70e Black is targeted to meet the needs of the growing mobile workforce, which is projected to reach 1.3 billion by 2015.

Field professionals can go from the warehouse to the job site and provide better, faster service because of the enhanced communication capability of the smart device.  A nurse in a hospital can downsize from carrying a phone, pager and scanner to a single device that goes from triage to office. For retail workers, the device can access product information, look at inventory or be used to call another employee inside or outside the store for assistance. 

"Honeywell has decades of experience in rugged design manufacturing and we are proud to introduce the AIDC industry's newest rugged hybrid device," said John Waldron, president of Honeywell Scanning & Mobility. "Dolphin Black reflects two device trends in today’s industrial world: consolidation and consumerization. Workers and enterprises are looking for a single device that can do the work of several. They also want their devices to be as intuitive and easy to use as their personal mobile phones and tablets, but rugged enough to survive the environment of today’s mobile professional."

Input from many of Honeywell’s customers guided the Dolphin 70e Black’s development and led to many of the features to improve enterprise productivity, security and durability. Among them are:

  • IP67 rating allows for submersion in water and is completely dust-proof
  • Enterprise-class area-imaging scanner
  • Large 4.3' capacitive touch display that can be viewed in direct sunlight
  • Up to 12 hours of battery life with a user replaceable battery
  • At 7 ounces and around ¾ inches thick, is lightweight and compact enough to fit in a worker’s pocket
