    The Thor VM1 contains a UPS battery which, when fully charged, can power the Thor VM1 for a minimum of 30 minutes. This can be when the Thor VM1 is not attached to a Quick Mount Smart Dock or when the Thor VM1 is attached to a dock but the vehicle power is interrupted, such as when the vehicle battery is being changed.

  • Page 16: End User License Agreement (eula)

    End User License Agreement (EULA) When a new Thor VM1 starts up a EULA is displayed on the touchscreen. It remains on the screen until the Accept or Decline button is tapped with a stylus. Tap the Accept button to accept the EULA terms and the Thor VM1 continues the startup process. The EULA is not presented to the user again.

  • Page 19: Chapter 2: Hardware

    Chapter 2: Hardware System Hardware 802.11a/b/g Wireless Client The Thor VM1 has an 802.11a/b/g network card that supports diversity with two internal or external antennas. Power management for the network card is configured with the Summit Client Utility. Central Processing Unit The CPU is a 1.6MHz Intel Atom processor.

  • Page 20: Input/output Components

    CompactFlash (CF) Slot The CF ATA slot is not hot swappable. The Thor VM1 must be powered down to insert or remove an ATA card. Since the operating system is stored on the CF ATA card, the Thor VM1 cannot operate without the ATA card.

  • Page 21: Bluetooth Lxez Pairing

    Bluetooth LXEZ Pairing The Thor VM1 contains Bluetooth version 2.0 with Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) up to 3.0 Mbit/s over the air. Bluetooth device connection (or pairing) can occur at distances up to 32.8 ft (10 meters) Line of Sight. The wireless client retains wireless connectivity while Bluetooth is active.

  • Page 22: Power

    If operating on UPS power and the UPS battery become critically low, the Thor VM1 performs a controlled shutdown. If there is no external power available, there must be 10% or greater power in the UPS battery or the Thor VM1 does not power...

  • Page 23: Backup Battery

    The backup battery should only be changed by authorized service personnel. Fuse The Thor VM1 uses a 10A time delay (slow blow), fuse that is externally accessible and user replaceable. The fuse is located on the back of the Quick Mount Smart Dock.

  • Page 24: Power Modes

    Off Mode The Thor VM1 is off when it is not connected to a power source and the UPS battery is depleted. However, an internal Real Time Clock (RTC) powered by an internal battery maintains the date and time while the Thor VM1 is off. When the Thor VM1 is...

  • Page 25: Primary Events

    USB data entry (from a USB keyboard or mouse) System Primary Events A System Primary Event allows the Thor VM1 to transition to D2 (System Idle) but the Thor VM1 does not enter D3 (Suspend) as long the system event occurs.

  • Page 26: Power Configuration

    If the Thor VM1 is Off, pressing the power button starts the power up sequence. Note: This assumes that the Thor VM1 is docked in a powered Quick Mount Smart Dock or that the internal UPS battery has a sufficient charge to power the Thor VM1. If no external power is available and the UPS battery does not have a charge, pressing the power button causes no action.

  • Page 27: Vehicle Ignition Monitoring

    If the Thor VM1 is Off and Ignition Input changes from Inactive to Active, the Thor VM1 boots. If the Thor VM1 is On and Ignition Input changes from Inactive to Active, the Thor VM1 remains On. If, for example, a Thor VM1 is running on the UPS and is placed into a Dock connected to a truck when the truck ignition is On, the power management scheme may change based on the availability of external power.

  • Page 28: External Connectors

    External Connectors Power the Thor VM1 off before attaching a cable to any port (serial, USB, Audio/CAN, etc.). Most external connectors for the Thor VM1 are located on the Quick Mount Smart Dock: COM1 connects to a serial bar code scanner, screen blanking cable, serial printer or PC.

  • Page 29: Serial Connector (com1 And Com2)

    The COM1 and COM2 connectors are D-9 male connectors located on the back of the Quick Mount Smart Dock. Power the Thor VM1 off before attaching a cable to any port (serial, USB, Audio/CAN, etc.). The serial connectors are industry-standard RS-232, PC/AT standard 9–pin “D” male connector.

  • Page 30: Screen Blanking

    Screen Blanking Box. If using a switch: A cable from the Thor VM1 to the switch. The cable requires pin 7 (RTS – Request to Send Output) and pin 8 (Clear to Send Input) of a DB9 female connector to a switch that provides an electrical conductive connection on vehicle motion.

  • Page 31: Sample Cable For Screen Blanking

    The Screen Blanking Box is designed to monitor a connection to a vehicle motion sensing circuit. When motion is detected, the Screen Blanking Box opens the connection between the output feeds (which are connected to Pins 7 and 8 of the Thor VM1) and the display on the Thor VM1 is blanked.

When the Thor VM1 is ordered with internal antennas, the external antenna connectors are not used. GPS and WWAN are optional on the Thor VM1 and require external remote mount antennas.

  • Page 42: Keyboard Options

    64-key QWERTY Keyboard The Thor VM1 has a QWERTY keyboard, available with a standard overlay, an IBM 3270 overlay or an IBM 5250 overlay. Because the keyboard only has 64 keys, all functions are not visible (or printed on the keyboard). Therefore the Thor VM1 keyboard supports what is called hidden keys -- keys that are accessible but not visible on the keyboard.

    Because the keyboard only has 12 keys, all functions are not visible (or printed on the keyboard). Therefore the Thor VM1 keyboard supports what is called hidden keys -- keys that are accessible but not visible on the keyboard. A key or combination of keys can be remapped to provide a single keypress, a string of keypresses or to execute an application or command.
