Pure Business on the Inside — Smart Styling on the Outside
The MC55A0 Series is the perfect blend of form and function. The comprehensive capabilities allow workers to scan bar codes; snap pictures; view videos; access business applications, the Internet and email as well as make and receive private and push-to-talk voice calls. The compact and lightweight mobile computer is easy to carry and easy to use, with a sleek design that is equally at home in front of customers and patients.
The Most Rugged Design Yet in this Class - Period
The MC55A0 Series is built to last, giving workers a device they can count on and businesses a maximum return on investment (ROI). This rugged device family is built for use inside your buildings as well as outdoor areas of your facilities — and our toughness tests prove it. The MC55A0 delivers outstanding performance, even after exposure to heat, cold, dust, water — and 1,000 consecutive tumbles in our rotating tumble drum.And all models can be sanitized with many common cleaners without harming the housing or the sensitive electronics, helping prevent the spread of bacteria to patients and caregivers in a hospital as well as shift workers in other industries where devices are shared.
The Power to Handle Virtually Any Application
Give your workers the best in class mobile application performance, even for the most demanding multimedia applications. Packed with the latest in technology, our powerful platform offers the most current mobile operating system for the enterprise, as well as the fastest processor and largest memory footprint in this device class.
Capture the Data you Need - When and Where you Need it
Four scanner options let you pick the model that will deliver the best performance for your organization. Our SE960 1-D laser scan engine provides best-in-class performance for 1-D bar codes, including near contact to medium range decoding of even the widest bar code. And the three variants of our revolutionary SE45002D imager deliver true laser-like performance and omnidirectional scanning of both 1-D and 2-D bar codes. The SE4500-SR offers the best range on medium and low density 1-D and 2-D bar codes. The SE4500-DL is optimized for medium to high density bar codes in addition to the bar codes found on driver’s licenses and other identification documents — ideal for border crossings as well as the healthcare and electronics industry. Our DPM option, the SE4500-HD, is tailored for very high density bar codes as well as virtually any direct part mark (DPM) — including dot peen, laser etch, ink mark, chemical etch, inkjet mold, cast and thermal spray — enabling automotive and aeronautics manufacturers to easily track and trace every part to improve safety and comply with government regulations. And if you need to capture photos, videos, or documents in addition to bar codes, no problem — just add our high-resolution 3.2 MP autofocus color camera.
Protect your Data with Government-Grade Security
Wireless solutions create an instant concern for businesses and government agencies — data security. In addition to standard support for all the latest wireless authentication and encryption protocols and Zebra's tested and certified Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), the MC55A0 adds native FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certification, bringing government grade security to businesses and government agencies alike. Unlike many other mobile computers, our security features protect your data and productivity, without impacting performance.
The Intelligence to Sense and Act on the Environment
Get real value with our business-class implementation of the accelerometer. We start with the typical ability to automatically switch the display between portrait and landscape modes based on device orientation, and build from there. Right out of the box, you can get the power saving functionality that helps ensure full shift operation on a single battery charge. With just a few clicks, you can configure the device to enter sleep mode if movement is not detected in a specified period of time, or if the display is face down. In addition, the MC55A0 automatically detects and logs drops, helping to increase worker accountability for device condition. And the open architecture allows enterprises to integrate the accelerometer data into customized applications to improve the safety of technicians working in remote areas of your facility — and prevent device theft.
Unparalleled Voice Functionality and Quality
Unlike many mobile computers, the MC55A0 is designed from the ground up to enable voice as well as data over your WLAN. The result is a superior user experience, highly cost-effective voice communications and a broad voice feature set. Start with the ability to turn the MC55A0 into a mobile version of your deskphones. Then add a push-to-talk connection to practically any other Zebra mobile device, including other mobile computers, EAM smartphones and even two-way radios on completely different networks.* This powerful combination allows workers to place one-to-one calls in sensitive environments, such as healthcare, while retail and other managers can easily reach an entire workgroup at the press of a button — eliminating intrusive overhead paging systems that affect the customer experience. Handset and speakerphone modes allow workers to choose privacy or hands-free convenience, meeting the needs of the job…and the moment. And since voice and data services are delivered over the WLAN, in-building cellular coverage issues that can affect voice quality are eliminated.
