SYMBOL Technologies has expanded the breadth of the MC3000 family of mobile computers by introducing a new pistol grip form factor.
Named the MC3090G mobile computer, this new configuration offers customers in the retail, transportation and logistics and government industries increased flexibility and versatility allowing them to choose the form factor most appropriate to their business.
Symbol will also refresh its MC3000 line of mobile computers to include Microsoft Windows CE 5.0 and additional features such as 802.11b/g/a WLAN connectivity.
The MC3090G is designed to increase efficiencies in scan-intensive operations. It incorporates the latest Intel XScale processor and is a compact, lightweight, highly ergonomic, rugged mobile computer.
End-users include retail workers who perform tasks such as inventory replenishment, price audits, warehouse shipping/receiving and other scan-intensive applications and workers who require a secure, rugged device in the transportation and logistics, postal and other industries.
The MC3090 series of mobile computers is based on the intuitive Microsoft Windows CE 5.0 computing platform, providing the latest operating system for real-time processing, faster performance and web browsing capabilities.
Select configurations also offer the popular rotating scan head with left, right and front positions to allow the user to adjust the scanning position for increased comfort and productivity.
Along with four-foot drop specifications across a range of temperatures, the MC3090 series has an IP54-rated sealing for protection against water and dust and provides reliable performance in tough environmental conditions.
The Symbol MC3090 line of mobile computers can be equipped with a Mobility Services Platform (MSP) agent that will collect and monitor device performance information and then deliver status in real-time to a centralised Symbol MSP management console.
This feature will help customers better address the growing challenges associated with rolling out, managing and maintaining enterprise mobility systems.
With the MSP, enterprise operations personnel can rapidly deploy new devices, like the MC3090, provision software upgrades and fixes with a single command, as well as perform remote user support and diagnostics.
