Motorola MC9090-G Handheld RFID Reader Features

Designed for workers inside your four walls, the MC9090-G offers advanced data capture options and integrated wireless LAN/PAN plus a comfortable ergonomic pistol grip to enable real-time data collection in scan-intensive environments — in the warehouse, on the loading dock, out in the yard, and in the back room or out on the sales floor of a retail operation.

Empower mobile workers inside the four walls with integrated multi-mode wireless LAN/PAN

Building on the success of the MC9000 family, the MC9090-G rugged mobile computer from Motorola provides mobile workers throughout the supply chain with a flexible always-on data connection to critical business applications and systems as well as to co-workers and other business associates. Equipped with the latest advances in mobile technology, the MC9090-G provides support for the richest enterprise applications, empowering mobile workers to capture and access critical business information in real time.  The industry-leading construction is designed to withstand rigorous use in extreme environments and a wide variety of working conditions, providing the flexibility to be used on the manufacturing floor, in the warehouse, on the loading dock, and out in the yard as well as in the back room or out on the sales floor of a retail operation. A seamless connection to wireless LAN provides a common global platform for your supply chain — and your applications. Support for wireless printing, wireless headsets and more via wireless PAN simplifies everyday use for end-users, while the ergonomic pistol-grip design provides comfort in scan intensive applications, such as shelf price audits and inventory management. Streamline your business operations, reduce errors, and increase your productivity and profitability with the power of the MC9090-G.

The power to meet your enterprise application requirements

Whether your application is simple or complex, the MC9090-G delivers performance you can count on.

The MC9090-G offers the latest Intel processor designed to handle the specific demands of mobility, as well as robust persistent storage capabilities and multiple advanced data capture options. A choice of the three Microsoft operating systems — Windows Mobile 5.0, Windows Mobile 6.1 or Windows CE 5.0 — gives you the flexibility to select either a familiar feature rich environment or a robust customizable application specific environment. The ability to capture images and bar codes from as close as four inches to as far as 40 feet, enables enterprises to deploy a single device in many business areas. Workers can count on ample battery life for a full shift through superior power management. And modular keypads, a rugged touch panel and a display that is easy to read inside and outside provide users with maximum ease-of-use and comfort.

Rugged construction and maximum manageability deliver a low TCO

The MC9090-G delivers outstanding investment protection and a low total cost of ownership through superior design, construction, manageability and support services. Adding  Motorola’s Mobility Services Platform (MSP) enables you to quickly and easily provision, track and support all your MC9090-G devices from a central location, delivering an unprecedented level of simplicity and low cost to management of mobile devices. And Motorola offers a full suite of services, from deployment assistance to comprehensive support plans that include repair of everyday wear and tear.
