Zebra MC3330R Integrated UHF RFID Reader

Zebra MC3330R Integrated UHF RFID Reader

RFID brings a new level of efficiency to inventory and asset management, order fulfilment and more. To maximize productivity, you want to give your workers a device that provides a new level of comfort, task speed, ease of use and accuracy to your RFID applications. The MC3330R handheld RFID reader delivers it all. You get the signature rugged design of Zebra’s industrial handheld products for maximum uptime. The MC3330R is one of the lightest devices in its class with the right ergonomics for all-day comfort. Superior RFID read performance and receiver sensitivity enable lightning fast capture of even the most challenging RFID tags. Workers can read both RFID tags and barcodes with point and shoot simplicity. And you can create intuitive Android applications that use the MC3330R’s powerful computing platform, large touchscreen, and physical keypad. The MC3330R — the next evolution in handheld RFID readers.

Zebra’s Signature Rugged Design

The MC3330R offers a new higher 5 ft./1.5 m drop specification and with IP54 sealing, it can handle splashing liquid and dust. The Corning Gorilla Glass touch panel and imager window bring maximum scratch-resistance and shatter-proofing to two of the most vulnerable device features. The result? Workers can drop the MC3330R on concrete and use it in dusty areas — and still expect reliable operation.


Unparalleled data capture performance and flexibility

The MC3330R’s integrated circular antenna delivers extraordinary reliability no matter the orientation of the tag. Workers can accurately and rapidly capture RFID tags on even the most challenging items in half the time as the next leading competitor* — from a shelf of clothing in a retail stock room to a box of files in the office.

Zebra’s high-performance ASIC radio technology provides superior sensitivity and greater read accuracy, delivering a read rate that is more than 25% faster and over 40% more accurate* than other devices in this class.

Workers don’t need to juggle different devices to capture RFID tags and barcodes — the MC3330R can capture it all. Zebra’s advanced scanning technology delivers lightning fast standard-range capture of printed and electronic 1D and 2D barcodes, regardless of condition. The expanded working range and wide field of view allow workers to scan barcodes nearer and farther away, while omnidirectional scanning ensures true point and shoot performance.


Low TCO with flexible development tools

If you are using other Zebra RFID handheld readers across your supply chain, you can streamline application development with a single software development kit. There’s no need to learn a different app development framework or rewrite an application — use the same SDK for the MC3330R, MC3390R, RFD2000 and RFD8500 RFID Sled.


Xamarin’s cross-development platform lets developers use their C# skills and tools to develop fast, beautiful apps for Android devices. And with Zebra’s EMDK and RFID SDK for Xamarin, it’s easy to incorporate all the advanced enterprise features of the MC3330R into your Xamarin apps. Our EMDK simplifies enterprise application design for faster, more cost-effective development cycles, while our RFID SDK for Xamarin allows you to use RFID apps you’ve developed for other Zebra devices on the MC3330R.
