The MC3190-Z from Zebra is an handheld RFID reader that operates in 902 to 928 MHz (US FCC) and 865 to 868 MHz (Europe). It combines the advantages of linear polarization for a longer read range or circular polarization for wider coverage into a patented omnidirectional antenna that offers a superior read range and superior coverage area. This antenna delivers extraordinary reliability and eliminates the need to precisely align the reader with the tag.
It offers the best of form and function with Zebra MAX Rugged and Zebra MAX Data Capture. The reader is able to survive a 4 ft./1.2 m drop to concrete across the entire operating temperature range. With IP54 sealing, it can withstand dust, spills and the routine wipedowns required in healthcare and other challenging environments. Zebra MAX Data Capture puts two best-in-class advanced data capture technologies in one device - the ability to read RFID tags and scan bar codes. It accurately captures even damaged and poor quality 1-D bar codes. This reader offers a unique combination of intuitive audible and visual cues to quickly guide a worker to the location of any desired item. As the device moves closer to a specific item, a tone beeps louder and faster, while a sliding graphical bar increases in size. Its well-balanced, gun-style grip brings comfort to the most read-intensive applications. And the advanced, high efficiency Zebra RFID reader engine increases workforce productivity with faster read rates that increase throughput.
This reader measures 7.6 x 4.7 x 6.4 Inches in size and is ideal for healthcare, retail and manufacturing applications.
