Engineered to maximize productivity in the
harshest enterprise environments
The VC5090 Vehicle/Fixed-Mount Mobile Computer
from Motorola combines rugged construction and
high performance wireless networking to enable
real-time data access and collection in the harshest
environments — from the loading dock and freezer
to the warehouse floor. Whether your workers are
on a forklift, at a fixed station or moving through the
warehouse aisles, the VC5090 provides the tools
needed to increase productivity and reduce errors
in shipping and receiving, as well as put-away and
picking applications. The results are improved decision
making, streamlining of warehouse operations — and
a positive impact on your bottom line.
Maximum durability and reliability
With industrial and military grade specifications
for vibration, shock, temperature and sealing, the
VC5090 delivers maximum durability in the toughest
environments. From the subzero temperatures in a
freezer to the repetitive pounding and vibrations of
forklift operations, the VC5090 delivers reliable year
after year performance, protecting your investment
and delivering the uptime needed to keep your
business moving.
Support next-generation applications
The VC5090 offers the high performance and
robust functionality needed to support innovative
rich browser-based and custom Windows CE
mobile applications as well as today’s terminal
emulation applications. The fully featured device
is equipped with the functionality to streamline
supply chain management through seamless
connectivity to virtually any wireless LAN through
802.11a/b/g, wireless scanning and printing via
Bluetooth, support for voice-picking, and Voiceover-IP via a push-to-talk handset. In addition, the
RFID-ready VC5090 can be easily integrated into
future Motorola forklift and vehicle mounted RFID
reader solutions. The sharp high-resolution screen
is easy to view in any warehouse environment. The
touchscreen enables easy data input with gloved
hands. And the familiar easy-to-use Windows CE
platform provides compatibility with many of today’s
mobile applications.
Reduce the cost and complexity of mobility
The VC5090 delivers even greater value as part
of Motorola’s leading rugged mobile computer line.
The shared hardware and software architecture
enable the VC5090 to integrate seamlessly into
your existing Motorola infrastructure. Applications
developed for other Motorola rugged mobile
computers can be easily ported to the VC5090,
dramatically reducing software development and
training requirements, and increasing the return
on investment for existing applications. Adding
Motorola’s Mobility Services Platform (MSP)
enables you to quickly and easily deploy, provision,
track and support all your VC5090 devices,
anywhere in the world, from a central location
— delivering an unprecedented level of simplicity
and low cost to managing mobile devices. To help
protect your investment, Motorola offers Service
