Zebra MC3190-Z RFID Reader

Zebra MC3190-Z RFID Reader


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.

Despite it’s rugged design, the MC3190-Z 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.  But it’s no lightweight!  The MC3190-Z is a high performance industrial handheld with an advanced, high efficiency RFID reader engine for faster read rates and higher throughput. Add a groundbreaking new orientation-insensitive antenna and the result is a highly versatile device that is at home in customer-facing environments, from retail stores and healthcare facilities to the office.
