New class of RFID reader brings the benefits
of RFID from industrial environments to the
carpeted space
The MC3190-Z represents another RFID first from
Motorola — the first business-class handheld RFID
reader designed specifically to extend the benefits
of RFID beyond industrial spaces and into customer
facing and business environments. The MC3190-Z
starts with the signature rugged design and high
performance for which Motorola’s industrial handheld
RFID products are known, and adds the ergonomics
required for all day comfort and ease of use. At just
half the weight of its industrial counterparts, the
MC3190-Z is the lightest UHF RFID rugged handheld
reader on the market, offering a well-balanced design
and a convenient gun-style grip for read intensive
applications. Add an advanced, high efficiency
Motorola RFID reader engine for faster read rates
and higher throughput, and the result is a highly
versatile device that is at home in customer facing
environments — from retail stores and enterprise
office environments to other markets like healthcare.
Motorola MAX RFID Antenna — delivering
maximum RFID performance
Until now, enterprises have been forced to choose
between two types of antennas: linear polarization
for a longer read range or circular polarization for
wider coverage. The MC3190-Z antenna combines
the advantages of these two technologies into a
patented omnidirectional antenna that offers the
best of both worlds — a superior read range and a
* MC3190-Z for US RFID frequencies available Q2 2011
superior coverage area. The orientation insensitive
antenna delivers extraordinary reliability and
eliminates the need to precisely align the reader with
the tag, adding to user comfort and productivity. The
result is the ability to accurately and rapidly capture
RFID tags on even the most challenging items —
from a pile of clothing in a retail store or a box of files
in the office to data tapes in the data center.
Motorola’s signature rugged design and dual data
capture functionality deliver superior value
The MC3190-Z offers the best of form and function
with Motorola MAX Rugged and Motorola MAX Data
Capture. While the MC3190-Z is designed for the
carpeted space, Motorola MAX Rugged provides
Motorola’s flagship rugged specifications, ensuring
dependable operation and a maximum lifecycle in
demanding business environments. The reader passes
one of the industry’s most stringent impact tests,
able to survive a 4 ft./1.2 m drop to concrete across
the entire operating temperature range. In Motorola’s
unique endurance test, the MC3190-Z continued to
perform reliably after 1,000 1.64 ft./0.5m drops in
Motorola’s tumble drum. And IP54 sealing enables
the device to withstand dusty environments, spills
and the routine wipedowns required in healthcare
and other challenging environments.
Motorola MAX Data Capture offers two best-inclass advanced data capture technologies in one
device — the ability to read RFID tags and scan
bar codes. The number of devices you need to

associated capital and operational costs. In addition
to exceptional RFID performance, the device also
enables first time capture of even poor quality 1D
bar codes, further protecting user productivity and
data accuracy.
Easy-to-use robust locating capability
Until now, RFID handheld readers identified the
general proximity of an item — for example, a
shelf. With the MC3190-Z, a unique combination of
intuitive audible and visual cues can quickly guide
an associate to locate any desired item, which is
useful in on-floor or back room situations. As the
device moves closer to a specific item, a beep tone
increases in frequency and volume, while a sliding
graphical bar increases in size.
