As RFID technology has evolved and improved, RFID-based business solutions have expanded to address a wider variety of uses. RFID solutions can now be applied to "radio frequency (RF)- challenged" items such as those with a high liquid or metal content. The technology can also be applied in situations requiring much higher read performance - such as reading tags in the middle of densely packed pallets.
The FX9500 industrial fixed reader from Motorola Solutions overcomes many of these challenges, extending the business value of RFID solutions to new industries and applications. The FX9500 RFID reader is designed for reading RFID-enabled pallets, cases, and items at dock doors, conveyors, and other industrial pOréal-based read points.
This rugged, high-performance fixed RFID reader is built for demanding industrial RFID applications in manufacturing, distribution and warehousing, and retail. Compared to other readers, FX9500 RFID reader is more sensitive and yields greater accuracy for reading RF-challenged items, longer read ranges for applications such as yard management, and faster throughput rates for reading tags.
The FX9500 is available in four-port/antenna configurations as well as eight-port/antenna configurations, which can cover more pOréals or dock doors with fewer readers, saving on deployment costs and achieving a lower cost per read point. The new reader allows for bistatic operation, where separate cables are used for antenna transmitting and receiving, for even higher RFID performance.
