The Enterprise Mobility business of Motorola Inc. announces the new Motorola XR450. This industrial-class fixed radio-frequency identification (RFID) reader features both bi- and mono-static antenna ports on one platform to protect RFID investments and decrease deployment complexities. The new two-in-one solution provides a high-performance RFID reader for both item-level tracking and demanding supply chain applications.
The XR450 includes new management software and enhanced security features, such as SSH and SSL support to protect information as it moves across external network interfaces. In addition, custom applications can be built and hosted on the device, offering the flexibility customers need to accurately read RFID tags in varying environments.
The XR450 RFID reader offers customers the choice of using four bi-static ports that require dual antennas or four mono-static ports that require only one antenna for transmitting or receiving tag data. Mono-static ports are ideal for real-time item-level tracking and applications such as reading pallets of goods at retail stores. Businesses can use the bi-static ports for the highest possible performance in the most challenging RF environments. The inclusion of both mono- and bi-static ports in a single platform allows customers to purchase one reader with the opportunity to utilize either port option. This provides greater flexibility to adapt the reader to the intended application and environmental needs.
The XR450 RFID reader is certified to run on both Microsoft Biz Talk Server 2006 R2 and IBM Premises Websphere 6.0 and 6.1. It also supports Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 2.0 for hosting customer applications directly on the reader.
The XR family of fixed RFID readers currently supports deployments around the world. With the release of the XR450, Motorola now adds certification and country support for both China and South Korea.
