MOBILE COMPUTERS INTO BUSINESS CLASS HANDHELD RFID READERS

The RFD 5500 UHF RFID Sled brings industry-leading RFID technology to your MC55, MC65 or MC67 mobile
computers.* This versatile accessory makes these mobile computers state-of-the-art handheld RFID readers that are
at home in the storefront, carpeted business areas, best suited for indoor applications. With its light weight, rugged
design and well-balanced, gun-style grip, the RFD5500 is suited to the most read-intensive applications. And the
advanced, high efficiency Zebra RFID reader engine gives you fast read rates, high throughput – and improved
productivity in your operation.
EASY-TO-USE LOCATING CAPABILITY
Many RFID handheld readers can identify the general proximity of an item – for example, a shelf. The RFD5500 offers
a unique combination of intuitive audible and visual cues to quickly guide a worker to the precise location of any
desired item. As the device moves closer to a specific item, a tone beeps louder and faster, while a sliding graphical
bar increases in size. So your employees can locate any individual item, regardless of where it may be, quickly and
easily.
SUPERIOR RFID PERFORMANCE
Most RFID readers offer you a choice of antennas: linear polarization for a longer read range or circular polarization
for wider coverage. Zebra’s patented omnidirectional antenna offers the best of both worlds – a superior read range
and superior coverage area. The orientation agnostic antenna in the RFD5500 delivers extraordinary reliability and
there’s no need to precisely align the reader with the tag. That means your workers can quickly and accurately capture
data on even the most challenging items — from a pile of clothing in a retail store or a box of files in the office to a
shelf full of data tapes in the data center.
DUAL DATA CAPTURE FUNCTIONALITY
The RFD5500 adds best-in-class RFID data capture technologies to the best-in-class bar code scanning ability of your
MC55, MC65 or MC67. The versatility of using two readers in a single device means employees can locate products,
read non-line-of-sight RFID data, and capture even damaged and poor quality 1-D bar codes without interrupting
workflow. Meanwhile, you have fewer devices to purchase and manage, which translates to a lower cost of ownership
for you.
