MC9400/MC9450 Mobile Computer

The next evolution in the ultra-rugged MC9000 Series — now with more power, advanced scanning and the fastest cellular and Wi-Fi connections — Wi-Fi 6E and 5G

Nearly five million MC9000 Series ultra-rugged mobile computers have helped streamline and error-proof processes in the toughest environments — from manufacturing and warehousing to ports, yards and retail stores. Introducing the next evolution in this highly successful handheld mobile computer family, the MC9400/MC9450. The standard, freezer and non-incendive models are loaded with all the latest mobile technologies. These devices are faster, ready to power the new generation of industrial applications. Scanning is easier with the world’s greatest scanning range — from in-hand to over 100 ft./30.5 m away. And with Wi-Fi 6E and private and public 5G, you get the fastest wireless connections available today — plus the ability to easily and cost-effectively extend your wireless networks to the most expansive indoor and outdoor facilities.

The latest in wireless connectivity

Private and public 5G — new cost-effective wireless options

These are the first gun-style devices to offer private and public 5G wireless data connectivity, bringing new affordable wireless networking options to expansive outdoor and indoor environments.1 And with two SIM card options — nano SIM and eSim — you can support private and public 5G connections simultaneously for network redundancy or deploy different wireless networks in different areas of the business.

Wi-Fi 6E – maximum speed and performance, indoors and outside

Get the fastest Wi-Fi connections available, Wi-Fi 6E.2

With quadruple the bandwidth and capacity, triple the speed and up to triple the available spectrum, your workers get dependable and instant application response times, increasing productivity and workflow efficiency.3

Advanced Bluetooth connectivity

Compared to Bluetooth 5.2, Bluetooth 5.3 increases energy efficiency for improved battery life; minimizes device interference for more reliable and higher quality connections, and enables more secure connections through enhanced security features.

Best-in-class data capture and communication options

The latest in advanced scanning technology

Give your workers an unmatched scanning range with the new SE58 Extended Range Scan Engine with IntelliFocusTM technology. Scan barcodes in hand to over 100 ft./30.5 m away4 — substantially farther than any scanner on the market. And the innovative green laser aimer is up to seven times more visible than the typical red aimer dot, making it easy to scan items on top warehouse racks.

Biometric facial recognition

Workers get easy device access, while you get the peace of mind that device access is restricted to pre-authorized users only, eliminating the risk of shared or compromised passwords.

Unmatched camera technology

The high-resolution front-facing camera is ideal for video-based collaboration. And the highest resolution rear camera in the class with HDR provides highly detailed photos, ideal for documenting incoming damaged shipments, quality checks and more.

Process automation made easy with OCR Wedge

Capture shipping container identification numbers, tire identification numbers (TINs), vehicle identification numbers (VINs) and more with the press of one button — ideal in manufacturing plants, yards, ports and depots.5

Choose from seven keypads to best match your data types

Select the keypad that will make data entry as easy as possible for your workers. And swap keypads on site to accommodate new data types or re-purpose devices in different areas of the business — without a trip to the service depot. 

Enable push-to-talk and secure text messaging

Connect your workforce with push-to-talk and text to enable instant collaboration and communications. The speaker, microphone, PTT voice internal speaker and Bluetooth wireless headset deliver quality audio on every PTT call.6 And you can share files and images on an individual or group chat.

Faster, more rugged and more flexible

The power to handle all your applications — simultaneously

Voice and line of business apps, simple ‘green screen’ legacy apps, apps powered by augmented reality and artificial intelligence — no matter how many applications workers need to use, the MC9400/MC9450 can power them, all at once. Take application performance to the next level. Compared to the MC9300, the new Qualcomm platform delivers 2.5x more processing power, 50 percent more RAM, four times the Flash and eight times micro SD storage. 

No more lost devices

With the new BLE battery and Mobility DNA’s Device Tracker, you can easily find devices — even if they are turned off or low in power.7

Three models for the most challenging environments

There’s a model for every environment — standard, freezer and non-incendive. The freezer model includes a heated touch panel and scanner exit window, plus a freezer-rated battery. And the Class 1 Div 2 non-incendive model8 enables mobile computing in areas where hazardous materials are present — such as flammable gases and materials.

Full backwards accessory compatibility for cost-effective upgrades

Upgrade to MC9400/MC9450 to put the advantages of the latest mobile features to work in your enterprise, while preserving your entire investment in MC9300 accessories. And you can also utilize MC9200 and older charging accessories with an adapter.

Advanced display technology for industrial environments

The large 4.3 in. display is easy to see indoors and outside, works when wet and is easy to use — even with thick gloves.

Rugged and ready for just about anything

The MC9400 and MC9450 are designed for your toughest environments. Muddy? Just hose it off. Submerged in water? No worries, it’s waterproof. With Zebra’s toughest drop and tumble testing, these devices have what it takes to handle the inevitable everyday drops on concrete in ports, yards, manufacturing plants and more. And two of the most vulnerable features are protected with Corning Gorilla Glass for maximum scratch- and shatter-resistance — the display and scanner window.

Android — enhanced with features for the enterprise

You get built in support through Android 17, with security updates to protect devices and their data. Easily deploy ‘zero touch’ updates on your schedule, automatically.9 Control which GMS services are available on your devices to increase security and privacy.10 And over 100 features can be added to improve security, data capture support, wireless connectivity and device manageability.11

PowerPrecision+ advanced battery technology

PowerPrecision+ batteries are designed and manufactured to deliver superior performance, reliability and safety. Visibility into real-time battery statistics makes it easy to spot and replace batteries that can no longer hold a full charge, protecting productivity. Batteries are always ready to go with fast charging. Change batteries on the fly without losing any data with hot swap support. And drop and tumble testing is performed with the battery inserted, ensuring that your batteries are as rugged as your devices.

Get your legacy apps up and running instantly

Run ‘green screen’ apps right out of the box with pre-loaded and pre-licensed Ivanti All-Touch TE — no licenses to purchase, backend system changes or user training required.
