ZEBRA RFD8500: Boost Your Mobile Equipment
Are you already using Zebra mobile terminals and require an RFID function? Or are you using customary tablets or smart phones but need enterprise-standard barcode and RFID collection features? The Zebra RFD8500 presents an ideal and economical solution lifting your own equipment to a higher functionality level. The mobile device can either be attached to the sled with a Quad Lock mount or the handheld sled can be used in standalone mode while the connected mobile device is kept in a pocket or put on a desk nearby. The Zebra RFD8500 can be easily paired via Bluetooth.
The Zebra RFD8500 is available as RFID-only sled or together with an integrated high-performance imager for top-quality 1D and 2D barcode capture. Zebra’s PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology makes sure barcodes are reliably scanned and decoded, even if they are damaged, stained or of poor quality. It exceeds by far the barcode reading capabilities of conventional smart phones or tablet computers. Switch between barcode scanning and RFID reading simply by pressing a button.
To ensure broad application options, the Zebra RFD 8500 RFID sled is compatible with Android-, iOS- and soon also with Windows-based devices. The Zebra Easy Text Interface (ZETI) enables easy, cross-platform communication with the host system for simple integration and operation.
The Zebra RFD8500 handheld sled comes with outstanding RFID features. To protect tags from cloning, the RFD8500 supports cryptographic tag authentication. Its ultra-fast reading and writing capability of more than 700 tags per second make it the perfect tool to enhance workflow efficiency.
Optimized power management and strong Li-Ion batteries ensure enough energy for at least a whole shift. The Zebra RFD8500 RFID sled can be used independently, storing collected data in batch mode (40,000+ RFID tags and/or 500 barcodes) and transferring it to the host later. This option provides maximum flexibility.
No doubt, the Zebra RFD8500 handheld sled presents a real gain for your enterprise if you require top-performance RFID and 1D/2D barcode scanning (opt.) features.
