THE ZEBRA RCH51

RUGGED CABLED HEADSET

LIGHTWEIGHT AND AFFORDABLE YET RUGGED HEADSET ENABLES HANDS-FREE VOICE-DIRECTED MOBILITY SOLUTIONS

The RCH51 provides the feature set required to replace paper with voice in demanding enterprise environments — in the warehouse, in the freezer, on the loading dock, or in the factory. Whether your workers are involved in receiving, picking and replenishment or putaway, shipping and other inventory-related tasks, the RCH51 enables voice-directed applications and real-time voice communications, reducing cycle times and errors while increasing productivity and throughput in a vital business hub. The stylish RCH51 is designed to bridge the gap between light duty call center-style and costly military grade headsets, offering an extremely rugged design and providing enhanced acoustic quality in an affordable headset that delivers all-day comfort. The smart material selection provides maximum strength — with minimum weight. The universal design is compatible with Zebra's most popular rugged handheld mobile computers, providing the flexibility to deploy the right mobile device for the job. One size truly does fit all — a headband capable of adjusting almost two inches ensures a good fit for nearly every worker. With a high performance noise canceling microphone, the headset improves productivity even in the noisiest environments by allowing your workers’ responses to be recognized the first time. Add a modern design that your workers will want to wear and you have the ideal industrial headset, making successful voice-recognition applications and two-way voice communications a reality in the harshest and noisiest environments.

BUILT TO SURVIVE THE MOST DEMANDING ENVIRONMENTS

Whether your workers spend the day traveling back and forth between a warehouse freezer and the heat of a loading dock on a hot summer day, or are out on the tarmac loading and unloading trucks in snow, sleet and rain, the RCH51 has what it takes to ensure reliable operation. The RCH51 passes Zebra's stringent mechanical design tests for both stress and endurance. The headset is built to survive the stress of multiple 6 ft./1.8m drops across the entire operating temperature range. An exceptionally rugged strain relief design provides superior cable bend tolerance, ensuring dependable operation even in extreme heat and cold. In the endurance test, the headset continued to perform even after 1000 consecutive 1.64 ft./0.5 m hits in Zebra's tumble drum. IP67 environmental sealing allows the headset to thrive in dusty and wet environments.

CRYSTAL CLEAR VOICE QUALITY FOR MAXIMUM EMPLOYEE PRODUCTIVITY

The success of voice-directed applications is dependent upon the acoustic performance of the headset. Ambient noise can prevent workers from hearing an instruction — or can force workers to repeat responses. The RCH51 is loaded with features that ensure superior acoustic performance by not only protecting the technology inside the headset, but also addressing the environmental challenges in noisy environments. Sealed audio components protect the speaker and microphone from moisture that would otherwise create distortion and degrade the audio quality. Even if other workers are nearby, the microphone provides superior noise canceling technology, filtering out background sounds and eliminating the potential for your application to receive multiple voice-inputs.

DESIGNED FOR COMFORT, SAFETY AND HYGIENE

The lightweight ergonomic design of the RCH51 eliminates pressure points, providing full shift comfort. In addition, the ability to change the microphone windscreen and speaker ear pad as well as the possibility to wipe down the headset at every shift change protects the health of your workforce. Finally, a quick disconnect feature allows workers to rapidly separate the mobile computer and the headset, improving worker safety.
