Motorola MC9060-G RFID Details

The MC9060-G RFID from Symbol Technologies is a ruggedized mobile computer that features integrated support for the most popular radio frequency identification standard - EPCâ„¢, the Electronic Product Code. By integrating support for either EPC Class 1 or Class 0 RFID reading and programming with a robust commercial mobile computer, the MC9060-G RFID is able to offer an unparalleled level of functionality suitable for a broad range of RFID applications. Combining RFID, bar code reading, imaging, 802.11 connectivity, a full 1/4 VGA screen and alphanumeric keypad, the MC9060-G RFID with RFID has the flexibility to give your organization real-time access to mission-critical information from key points in your supply chain. Enterprise-wide management and control of the MC9060-G RFID is easy with Symbol's Mobility Services Platform (MSP).

Many of the world's largest retailers, manufacturers and logistics organizations are integrating RFID as part of their supply chain processes, and RFID is rapidly emerging as a key technology across a wide range of markets and applications. With a feature set that delivers superior data collection, communication and collaboration, the MC9060-G RFID with RFID facilitates faster decision-making and increased productivity in a variety of environments - from the factory to the warehouse to the sales floor.

Mobile Solutions Add Value to RFID

Traditional supply chain applications of RFID rely on automatic reading of tagged items using fixed readers installed at dock doors, mechanized conveyors, depalletization stations and other "choke" points in the movement of goods. However, when integrated with a mobile solution, RFID technology expands and improves the general functionality and performance of your entire mobile application.

How Do Mobile Solutions Add Value to RFID Technology?


Mobile Solution Value

Exception Processing

Allows misreads and other problem shipments to be investigated away from the dock without impeding flow

Remote Location Support

Provides a means of utilizing RFID information for receiving - even in the middle of a desert

Quick Start

No installation and low total solution cost allows a "quick start" with RFID

In Site Processing

Goods stored away from fixed readers - e.g. in storage racks - can still be processed using RFID tag information

Mixed Bar code and RFID

Lets workers switch quickly between RFID-tagged items and items marked with a bar code
