The MC3190-Z represents another RFID first from Zebra — the first business-class handheld RFID reader designed specifically to extend RFID beyond industrial spaces and into customer facing and business environments. This highly versatile device is at home in the retail storefront, the carpeted business office and hospitals as well as the warehouse and manufacturing production line. The MC3190-Z starts with the same signature rugged design and high performance found in all Zebra industrial handheld RFID products, 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 — period. 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.
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 superior coverage area. The orientation insensitive antenna delivers extraordinary reliability and there’s no need to precisely align the reader with the tag. As a result, workers can 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 a shelf full of data tapes in the data centre.
The MC3190-Z offers the best of form and function with Zebra MAX Rugged and Zebra MAX Data Capture. While the MC3190-Z is designed for the carpeted space, Zebra MAX Rugged provides Zebra's flagship rugged specifications to ensure dependable operation and a maximum lifecycle in any environment. 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 Zebra's unique endurance test, the MC3190-Z performs reliably after 1,000 1.64 ft./0.5m hits in Zebra's tumble drum. And with IP54 sealing, the device 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. This versatility translates into fewer devices to purchase and manage. And just because the MC3190-Z offers advanced RFID technology does not mean you need to sacrifice bar code performance. The device accurately captures even damaged and poor quality 1-D bar codes.
Until now, RFID handheld readers identified the general proximity of an item — for example, a shelf. The MC3190-Z 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. The result? Employees can rapidly locate any individual item, regardless of where it may be, faster and easier than ever before.
When you choose the MC3190-Z, you enjoy the advantages of a world-class partner channel, world-class management solutions and world-class services. Zebra's award-winning partner ecosystem offers a best-in-class, broad set of ready-to-go and custom applications for the MC3190-Z, minimizing deployment time and cost. Compatibility with Zebra's Mobility Services Platform (MSP) and the Zebra Mobility Suite offers extraordinary centralized control over all your Zebra devices, including the ability to remotely stage, provision, monitor, troubleshoot, secure data on the devices and much more. And since your employees will count on the MC3190-Z every day, Zebra's Service from the Start with Comprehensive Coverage will help keep your devices up and running at peak performance. This unique service includes normal wear and tear, as well as coverage for internal and external components damaged through accidental breakage at no additional charge — significantly reducing your unforeseen repair expenses.
