MC36 Mobile Computer
the enterprise digital assistant...built for big business
You need to give workers in the field instant access to information to improve productivity and customer service quality. Your workers
want a device that is every bit as easy to use as their own consumer smartphones. But you need an enterprise-class device designed
for business. With the MC36, you can have it all. Your workers get the modern design they want along with an operating system that
is comfortable and familiar — AndroidTM. You get a rugged design ready for life in the field; the largest display, memory space, battery
capacity and scan engine options in this device class; the only device in its class to offer dual wireless network connectivity to ensure
coverage for workers who travel through large territories — and the quality you expect from Zebra.
Business tough — built for all-day
every day enterprise use
Workers can use the MC36 in a dusty parking
lot, drop it on concrete and even get it wet —
and still expect reliable operation. The rugged
MC36 is completely sealed against dust, and
survives 1.2 m drops to concrete over the entire
operating temperature range as well as 300
consecutive drops from 0.5 m.
Android — the world’s most
popular operating system
Not only are your workers already familiar with
Android, it gives you the flexibility to create
business applications that can take advantage
of the MC36’s touch screen and are every bit
as intuitive and fun to use as today’s consumer
applications, minimizing training requirements.
Large display with best-in-class
outdoor readability
The exceptionally bright, large 4.3 in. color
WVGA display is easy to read, even in direct
sunlight, with plenty of display space for all
your applications. And the capacitive twopoint display supports the pinch and zoom
interactivity that today’s workers expect.
The most power in its class
The MC36 offers the fastest processor and
largest memory space in its class, delivering
blazing performance — even for your most
data and graphics-heavy applications.
The most battery capacity in its class
The extended 1.5x battery delivers plenty of
power for extended shifts — up to 12 hours.
The only device in its class to offer
dual cellular network connectivity
The MC36 offers dual SIM card slots so you
can ensure connectivity for workers that travel
large territories with areas better served by
different networks. With the MC36, no matter
where your workers go, they’ll have the
connectivity they need to get the job done.
Support for your HF-RFID apps
With optional Integrated HF-RFID, you can
streamline ticket processing in “closed
loop” pre-paid applications; ensure security
personnel visits every security checkpoint;
help maintenance technicians access asset
history for faster and more accurate repairs;
and improve asset management and visibility.
Advanced bar code scanning technology
— and your choice of scan engines
Whether you need to scan 1D bar codes or 1D
and 2D bar codes, we give you the flexibility
to choose the right scan engine for the job.
Both scan engines easily capture bar codes
in just about any condition — even if they
are poorly printed, dirty or scratched. And
with our patented and proprietary PRZM
intelligent imaging technology, our 2D imager
option lets you capture large and small 1D
and 2D bar codes with laser style speeds
from as far as 60 cm/24 in. away for superior
application flexibility.
Right or left-handed operation
Scan buttons on either side of the device
bring ease and comfort to bar code scanning
for every worker.
The MC36 — modern design on the outside. pure business on the inside.
