Motorola MC9200 Offers Faster Performance, Legacy App Compatibility

Motorola Solutions has expanded its popular MC9000 series of industrial mobile computing devices with the launch of the MC9200. According to the company, the MC9200 is the most powerful industrial mobile computer available today thanks to a significantly speeder dual-core processor compared to previous models in the series.

Speed isn't all the devices has to offer, though, as it is also capable of supporting the latest mobile enterprise applications, while its ruggedized build allows it to perform fully in rougher environments, such as warehouses, loading docks and manufacturing shop floors.

"The MC9200 mobile computer is an example of Motorola Solutions’ continued commitment to protecting the investment of existing customers while opening the door to new ones with access to the latest innovations and technology to meet their changing business needs," said Joe White, vice president of Enterprise Mobile Computing at Motorola Solutions, in a statement. "The MC9200 maintains leadership in the mobile computing industry with the same signature rugged design, best-in-class bar code scanning and dependable operation that businesses have relied on for the last decade."

Indeed, the MC9200 offers the same functionality as previous models in the MC9000 series — including the same level of stability, quality and reliability, as well as backward compatibility with legacy warehouse management systems (WMS) and Telnet applications via Motorola's RhoMobile Suite. Likewise, all existing peripherals and accessories designed for the MC9000 series — such as keypads, batteries and cradles — will be compatible with the MC9200.

Of course, the MC9200's new dual-core OMAP4430 processor from Texas Instruments allows the device to stand apart from the rest f the series, along with support for high-speed 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, increased storage capacity, and enhanced information assurance security thanks to FIPS 140-2 cryptographic certification.

Finally, the MC9200 offers a broad range of scanning capabilities, including Motorola's latest 1D laser scanner, 1D long-range scanner, and 2D imagers capable of reading all 1D, 2D and DPM bar codes omni-directionally. In addition, a 2D long-range imager can capture 1D and 2D barcodes from up to 30 feet away.
