Zebra's Most Rugged EDA
With Zebra MAX Rugged, you can count on reliable operation inside and outside the enterprise. The MC75A meets or exceeds MIL-STD 810G requirements for stress (drop) testing as well as IEC specifications for tumble and sealing. The MC75A can handle multiple 6 ft./1.6 m drops plus 1,000 consecutive 1.6 ft./.5 m tumbles (2,000 drops) — and still deliver dependable performance. The IP54 sealing rating enables use in dusty environments and exposure to rain or spills. The disinfectant-ready MC75A Series helps prevent the spread of germs to patients and caregivers in a hospital as well as shift workers in other industries who share devices. All models can be sanitized with many common cleansers, without harming the plastics or the sensitive scanning components. And with Hazardous Location certified models, you can easily extend the power of mobility to areas where flammable materials are present. The result? Fewer repairs and maximum uptime, providing a strong return on asset (ROA).
The MC75A offers a level of flexibility that puts it in a class of its own, with a feature set that includes many Zebra-unique capabilities.
The only EDA to offer five keypads.
Numeric, QWERTY, DSD, AZERTY and QWERTZ keypads enable maximum data entry simplicity for virtually any application anywhere in the world.

Zebra MAX Locate for more robust location-based applications.
Integrated aGPS/GPS technology opens up a world of possible location-based applications — including real-time navigation, better fleet management, the ability to geostamp a photo for proof of condition or capture coordinates for proof of delivery in transportation and logistics or proof of service for inspections and maintenance. The best-in-class implementation includes the SiRFstarIII GSC3f/LP GPS chipset for robust coverage even in challenging urban canyons and areas of dense foliage, providing more users with location-based services in more areas. And the low-power chipset delivers top-notch accuracy with minimal power requirements, conserving battery power.
Enterprise-class motion sensing with Zebra MAX Sensor.
MAX Sensor enables business-class implementation of one of the most popular consumer-style cellular phone technologies in the MC75A — the accelerometer. In addition to the typical ability to automatically switch between portrait and landscape display based on the orientation of the device, many additional features can be enabled in seconds, right out of the box. Power management features help ensure full shift battery power. For example, the device can automatically revert to sleep mode if movement is not detected in a specified period of time, or if the display is face down. The ability to detect and log drops helps increase worker accountability for device condition. And the open architecture allows enterprises to integrate the accelerometer data into customized applications that can help improve the safety of field service technicians working in remote areas and prevent device theft.
MAX Data Capture for maximum business functionality.
The MC75A captures virtually any type of data and performs almost any business function, streamlining and reducing errors in your business processes. As the inventor of bar code scanning, Zebra offers unparalleled 1D and 2D scanning technology. The SE950 scan engine provides best-in-class 1D bar code scanning performance, while the SE4500, Zebra's revolutionary imager engine, delivers equally stunning performance on 1D and 2D bar codes. Two options provide the flexibility to address your unique bar code requirements. For 1D or 2D intensive applications and maximum reading distance, choose the SR4500-SR. For 1D and 2D intensive applications with smaller and high density bar codes, including those found on some driver’s licenses, choose the SR4500-DL. In addition, the SE4500 offers omni-directional scanning, eliminating the need to align bar code and scanner, and providing the intelligence to capture even damaged and poor quality bar codes. The integrated 3.2 megapixel autofocus color flash-enabled camera enables the easy capture of high-resolution photographs, video footage and documents — complete with legible fine print.
