Improved workflow efficiency with ultra-rugged mobile computer from Zebra Technologies


MC9400 series offers advanced scanning capabilities and secure authentication Zebra Technologies

  • Zebra Technologies Corporation [TW1] (NASDAQ: ZBRA), a leading provider of digital solutions that enable companies to intelligently connect data, assets and people, today unveiled their new ultra-rugged mobile computer, the MC9400 Series [TW2]. Equipped with public and private 5G (data only) and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, the MC9400 series is designed to increase workflow efficiency and security for devices in retail, warehouses, manufacturing, transportation and logistics.

The MC9400 series is an evolution of Zebra's ultra-rugged mobile computers [TW3] - it is the first of the MC9000 family to offer 5G (data only) and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, the fastest connection speed available today. The MC9400 provides a cost-effective wireless solution necessary for efficient operation in demanding industrial environments, both indoors and outdoors, including cold storage. With maximum speed and performance, the MC9400 improves the productivity of frontline workers when cross-docking in the warehouse, tracking items in a production facility or managing goods in a port, yard or other demanding environments.

"The MC9400 series represents a major turning point in wireless connectivity, scanning and secure authentication to deliver enhanced operational benefits for our customers," said Julie Johnson, senior vice president and general manager, Enterprise Mobile Computing, Zebra Technologies. "Zebra's latest ultra-rugged mobile computing solution is a great example of how we are helping frontline workers work in new ways to improve efficiency and productivity."

In addition to offering the latest wireless connectivity, the MC9400 series has been enhanced with Zebra's new SE58 [TW4] extended-range scanning engine and IntelliFocustm technology [TW5]. The new extended range enables workers to scan barcodes up to a distance of more than 30.5 metres. The scanner's new green laser dot offers greater visibility - even in daylight - than the usual red dot, making it easier for workers to scan items in hard-to-reach places, such as a high warehouse rack. It can be added to customers' existing pool of MC9000 mobile computers without the need for new accessories, minimising operational interruptions.

In addition, the MC9400 series Identity Guardiantm [TW6] provides a biometric facial recognition and authentication solution that gives employees fast, easy and secure access to their devices and minimises the risk of shared or compromised passwords. Unique user profiles are stored in an encrypted QR code, allowing the device to be shared with an unlimited number of users for greater flexibility. The device is also equipped with a new BLE battery that, combined with Zebra Device Tracker [TW7], ensures that employees can locate a device - regardless of whether that device is on or off - minimising the time and cost of lost devices.
