  • Specs

Motorola 9090-GMotorola's MC9090-G RFID handheld reader gives your workers the ability to capture a comprehensive range of data from RFID tags and bar codes to images with this flexible multi-function RFID handheld reader, which reads data in remote areas where fixed RFID readers can't reach. Single device simplicity translates into simpler and cost-effective mobility architecture with fewer devices to purchase, support, and manage. And whether your workers are on the manufacturing floor, in the warehouse, on the loading dock or out in the yard, the rugged design ensures reliable performance.



Superior Application Flexibility
Multi-modal single device supports 1D, 1D ER (extended range, US only) and 2D bar code scanning, RFID and imaging.

Supports EPC Gen 2 and Dense Reader Mode (DRM)
Color touchscreen

Color touchscreen
Allows easy integration of RFID as part of your supply chain processes.

Exceptionally rugged construction
Gives you the flexibility to work in nearly any environment and dramatically reduces repair and downtime costs. This device passes the industry's most stringent drop and tumble tests, has an IP64 sealing rating and integrated internal antennas.

Flexibility to support global deployment needs
Multiple configurations available that support standards around the world.

Pinpoint locationing technology
Unique combination of audible and visual cues easily guides workers to a specific item: as the device moves closer to the desired item, a beep tone increases in frequency and volume, while a sliding graphical bar increases in size.

Superior wireless technology
Enable real-time data communications with Integrated 802.11 a/b/g.

Maximize software development investment
Windows Mobile 5.0 and 6.1 provide an advanced mobile operating system for robust application support (Windows or application specific).

Persistent storage and multimedia application support
Ensure retention of mission-critical data with Intel XScale PXA270 processor and 624 MHz enhanced memory architecture.

Wirelessly synchronize, print, and connect to a headset
WPAN: Bluetooth v1.2 radio with BT Explorer (Manager included).

Forward scanning, pistol grip ergonomics
Large QVGA display: exceptional clarity and contrast

Integrated directional antenna (70 degree forward-looking)
Enables isolation of desired tags.

Familiar Tools
API (Application Programming Interface) for Microsoft Windows CE.NET 4.2 and Windows Mobile 5.0 and 6.1 simplify and reduce the time required to develop RFID-enabled applications.
