MOTOROLA MC9190-Z HANDHELD RFID READER
RUGGED, LONG RANGE RFID READER FOR INDUSTRIAL ENVIRONMENTS
MOTOROLA MC9190-Z
HANDHELD RFID
READER
LONG RANGE, HIGH PERFORMANCE
SAVES TIME AND MONEY
To put more product into the hands of your
customers – and put more profit into your pockets –
you need to know what you have and where to find
it. On the dock or in the storeroom, the Motorola
MC9190-Z Handheld RFID Reader is designed to
make that job faster and easier.
The MC9190-Z is Motorola’s new best-in-class
standard for handheld RFID readers. With its high
RF sensitivity that provides for greater accuracy,
higher throughput and longer reads, the MC9190-Z
reaches further to bring reliable data about your
products right to your fingertips. Inventory counts
can be accomplished more often, more quickly and
accurately and, unlike scanning with bar codes,
without line of sight. Then, armed with more
complete information, you can better locate and
track assets and inventory, and manage your stock
levels to avoid running out of product or carrying
expensive excess inventory.
RUGGED AND READY TO WORK
The MC9190-Z is sealed to meet IP64 standards so you
can use it even in dust or rain. A tough, non-glare LCD
screen allows for optimal reading in bright sunlight
and worry-free glass protection in rugged use. The
MC9190-Z’s specially designed corner bumpers enable
it to handle repeated drops to a concrete floor with a
6ft./1.8m drop spec. We built it to work for a living, even
in your toughest environment.
MAKE A SMART CHOICE
The Motorola MC9190-Z joins the broadest, most
comprehensive portfolio of business and industrial fixed,
mobile, handheld and hands-free RFID readers available
today. Simply put, Motorola RFID devices are being used
in more applications, more industries and more countries.
To you, that means extensive experience you can tap
to solve your unique challenges, higher confidence that
we can deliver what you expect and greater value built
in every device we make. It all adds up to make the
MC9190-Z an easy choice.
FEATURES
Multi-modal data capture
Integrated RFID and barcode
in one rugged device gives you
lower total cost of ownership.
Greater efficiency
Reliable, long-range RFID
performance allows more
frequent and more accurate
inventory-count operation to
better manage on-the-floor, backroom and distribution inventory
– reduce out-of-stock and excess
inventory carrying costs.
Maximum rugged design
Can withstand a 6 ft./1.8 m drop
to concrete, 2000 one-meter
tumbles and has an IP64 sealing
to help ensure reliable operation
in spite of everyday drops, bumps
and exposure to dust and liquids
