MC9060-G Handheld RFID Reader

Symbol's MC9060-G RFID has been replaced by the MC9090-G RFID Mobile Computer.

MC9000-G Series with RFID

The MC9060-G with RFID from Symbol Technologies is a rugged mobile computer that features integrated support for the most popular radio frequency identification standard — EPC™, the Electronic Product Code. By integrating support for EPC Generation 1 (Gen 1) and Generation 2 (Gen 2) with a firmware upgrade, RFID reading and programming with a robust commercial mobile computer, the MC9060-G is able to offer an extraordinary 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 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 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 exceptional data collection, communication and collaboration, the MC9060-G 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.

Services for a More Successful Mobility Solution

Symbol offers a full suite of services, including analysis, design, installation, training and ongoing support for the deployment, management and continued support of your RFID solution.
