The Ultimate Cost-Effective Touch Computer Built for Business

The TC21 and TC26 touch computers are value-priced devices designed specifically to give businesses of all sizes access to Zebra's best-in-class technology so they can compete effectively without breaking the bank. Backed by Zebra's heritage as a global market leader, the TC21 and TC26 are built with the quality, features and capabilities to support efficient operations for multiple applications and industries. They include a high-resolution 13-megapixel camera, large 5-inch HD touchscreen and removable/replaceable batteries. Plus, they stand up to tough conditions. Drops to concrete, snow, rain, heat, freezing cold—the waterproof and dustproof TC21/TC26 can handle it all.

Multiple configurations at different price points let customers pay only for the features their workers need. The WiFi-only TC21 is ideal for work inside the four walls, while the WiFi/cellular TC26 provides maximum flexibility for applications beyond the four walls such as field service and delivery. These affordable devices are matched by an equally affordable Zebra OneCare™ SV support contract.

Get all the features of the TC26, now with support for the newest wireless technology, Citizens Band Radio Service (CBRS). With comprehensive wireless networking, no matter what wireless networking technology workers encounter throughout a shift, they can connect to it all—WiFi, cellular, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC and CBRS. CBRS enables the easy extension of robust wireless services in expansive environments, such as seaports, rail yards, campus-style hospital environments, resorts, golf courses and more, easily covering thousands of acres—outdoors, as well as in every corner of every building. And since one CBRS base station can cover the same area as up to 10 WiFi access points, there is less infrastructure to purchase, deploy and maintain, enabling cost-effective wireless coverage in the largest enterprise environments.

Customers can tailor data capture options to suit their business, whether workers are capturing barcodes all day every day or only occasionally. Because the removable battery can power an entire shift—or even a double shift of 14 hours—workers never have to take the device out of service.

The TC21 and TC26 deliver great value and a low cost of ownership without compromising quality. Every device comes equipped with Mobility DNA Professional, a set of tools that transform Android™ into an enterprise-ready force. For a small fee, unlock a set of powerful advanced tools that take workforce productivity and device management simplicity to a new level with Mobility DNA Enterprise license. Also, with the familiar Android OS, workers need very little training.

Innovative Features of the TC21 and TC26 Touch Computers

Choose from several data capture options
For scan-intensive 1D/2D applications, choose the SE4710 for faster-than-ever barcode capture. For light to moderate 1D/2D scanning, choose the SE4100. For just every-now-and-then barcode capture, the high resolution 13 MP camera in the base model can do the job.

Removable single-shift or multi-shift battery eliminates mid-shift interruptions

With a removable battery, workers always have the power they need to keep working without interruption. Get 10 hours of power with the standard battery, or choose the extended battery for 14 hours of power—ideal for long or double shifts. With a removable battery, workers never need to take their device out of service for charging.

Provide peace of mind by adding LifeGuard,™ a lifetime security guard for Android™

LifeGuard™ for Android™ provides the security patches and updates customers need to keep the TC21/TC26 secure every day they are in service—up to six years.
