Low TCO with flexible deployment tools

Simplify application development with a common platform

If you are using other Zebra handheld RFID 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 MC3390xR, MC3330xR, MC3390R, MC3330R, RFD2000 and RFD8500 RFID Sled.

Simplify full-fleet rollouts with EMDK and RFID SDK for Xamarin

Xamarin’s cross-development platform lets developers use their C# skills and tools to develop fast, beautiful apps for Android devices. With Zebra’s EMDK and RFID SDK for Xamarin, it’s easy to incorporate all the advanced enterprise features of the MC3390xR 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 MC3390xR.

Unparalleled data capture performance and flexibility

Best-in-class RFID read range and accuracy

The integrated long-range antenna can capture RFID tags more than 60 ft./18.2 m away — 200% farther than the next leading competitor. This reliable, long-range RFID performance enables more frequent and more accurate inventory-count operation, so you can better manage your on-the-floor, backroom and distribution inventory.

Superior sensitivity for greater accuracy

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.1

Integrated mid-range or long-range 1D/2D barcode scanning

Workers don’t need different devices to capture RFID tags and barcodes — the MC3390xR can capture it all. Choose between a mid-range scan engine or the extended range scan engine that can capture barcodes from 3 in./7.62 cm to as far as 70 ft./21.4 m away. Both options offer Zebra’s exclusive PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology for first time, every time capture of 1D and 2D barcodes, regardless of condition.

Easy-to-use locating technology

The MC3390xR can help pinpoint the location of a specific item. Item Finder mode uses audible and visual cues to quickly guide workers to the location of any desired item.

Capture multiple barcodes and entire forms with a single scan

Do you need to capture multiple barcodes on one or more labels on an item? The MC3390xR makes it easy. Workers can easily capture all the right barcodes on numerous labels, all with one press of the scan trigger.


Powerful platform for demanding enterprise applications

Built for semi-industrial environments

The MC3390xR offers a 5 ft./1.5 m drop specification and with IP54 sealing, it can handle splashing liquid and dust. The Corning® Gorilla® Glass touchpanel and imager window bring maximum scratch-resistance and shatter-proofing to two of the most vulnerable device features. The result? Workers can drop the MC3390xR on concrete and use it in dusty areas — and still expect reliable operation.

Power full shifts with the class-leading 7000mAh battery

The new 7000mAh extended capacity battery is standard with every MC3390xR. More power means fewer battery changes, easier battery management and a smaller battery pool. And Zebra’s PowerPrecision+ technology provides a full suite of metrics that make it easy to identify, remove and replace aging batteries.

Lightweight and streamlined design

The MC3390xR is one of the lightest UHF RFID readers in its class and is built for easy one-handed use, whether workers are right- or left-handed.

Unparalleled computing power

Power your most demanding apps of today and tomorrow with a superior processor and memory — every model offers an ultra-powerful 2.2 GHz octa-core processor and 4 GB RAM/32 GB Flash.

Backward compatible accessories

You can use most of your existing MC3200/MC3300/MC3300R accessories for a cost-effective upgrade. And choose from new accessories like the universal ShareCradle that simplifies backroom management.

Feedback for any environment

With high visibility LEDs, workers can easily keep track of charging status and confirm a task was completed, even in the noisiest environments. LEDs are located on both sides of the device to ensure visibility from any angle.

Integrated NFC for simple, split-second pairing

With a quick tap, workers can pair the MC3390xR with Zebra’s family of ring scanners, mobile printers, and Bluetooth headsets. And you can also use the NFC reader for “tap to authenticate” applications, where workers simply tap their employee ID badge to log into authorized applications and resources.

Simplify data entry with a keypad and large touchscreen

The perfect combination: large touchscreen and keypad

Whether your application requires touch or physical keypad input, we’ve got you covered. Your application can utilize the entire display, while the physical keypad provides the same familiar user input experience your workers have today. And with three different options, you can choose the right keypad for your data entry needs — alphanumeric, numeric and functional numeric.

The ultimate in Android support

The only device in this class to offer Android 11

Android 11 makes the MC3390xR easier to use and even more secure with support for future Android versions. For your IT department, there are 50+ new security and privacy improvements.

A lifetime security guard for Android

With LifeGuard™ for Android™, you get the security updates you need to keep your MC3390xR RFID readers secure every day they are in service — along with an easy end-to-end control of the OS update process, plus built-in support for the next version of Android.
