Moto Handheld Improves Long-range Data Capture

— November 07, 2012

Motorola Solutions, Inc.'s new high-performance mobile computer is designed for demanding medium- to long-range applications in industrial environments. Suitable for manufacturing, warehouse, and transportation and logistics applications that require reading tags that are often out of sight or more than 10 feet away, the MC9190-Z is one of the longest-range RFID handhelds in its class available on the market.

The MC9190-Z handheld RFID reader incorporates Motorola’s long-range linear antenna improved data capture accuracy.

The device's ergonomic features allow more frequent and accurate inventory counts to better manage on-the-floor, back-room, warehouse and distribution inventory, which aims to reduce out-of-stock and excess inventory carrying costs.

By offering multi-modal data capture that combines integrated RFID, direct part marking (DPM) and barcode reading, the MC9190-Z offers enterprise customers a lower total cost of ownership.

The rugged MC9190-Z can withstand repeated 6-foot drops to concrete, meets IP64 standards and features a tough, non-glare LCD colored touch screen for use in virtually any indoor or outdoor environment.

As part of Rockwell Automation’s Encompass product referencing program, the MC9190-Z will allow joint customers to solve their application challenges and extend the value of their existing solutions.

Motorola’s MC9190-Z handheld RFID reader is available with the Service from the Start with Comprehensive Coverage program, providing coverage for normal wear and tear and accidental damage to internal and external components, significantly reducing unforeseen repair expenses.

"We have been impressed with the capabilities of Motorola Solutions’ new MC9190-Z RFID reader," said James Chan, general manager, Toll Global Logistics. "The larger touch-screen makes it much simpler for our field workers to interact with the device, and the RFID performance is the best that we have seen in a product of its class. We believe it will deliver greater agility and efficiency to our daily operations, resulting in increased value and benefits to our customers.”
