MC3190-Z Handheld RFID Reader

Bring the Benefits of RFID to the Carpeted Space

The MC3190-Z represents another RFID first  — 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 Motorola 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 Motorola 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 center.
