Motorola unveils next-gen RFID reader
Dubai, August 4, 2011
Motorola Solutions, a leading provider of mission-critical communication products and services for enterprise and government customers, has introduced the FX9500 industrial-class fixed RFID reader for reading RFID-enabled pallets, cases and items at dock doors, conveyors and other industrial portal-based read points.
As RFID technology has evolved and improved, RFID-based business solutions have expanded to address a wider variety of use cases.
RFID solutions can now be applied to RF-challenged items such as those with high liquid or metal content, or in situations requiring much higher read performance – such as reading tags in the middle of densely packed pallets.
The high-performance FX9500 industrial fixed reader overcomes these challenges, extending the business value of RFID solutions to new industries and applications.
Mike Poldino, general manager of RFID, Motorola Solutions said: “Businesses look to RFID and industrial fixed RFID reader solutions to achieve near 100 per cent shipping, receiving and order accuracy. Motorola Solutions is the market share leader in UHF RFID readers, and our new high-performance FX9500 reader will enable organisations to leverage the increased asset visibility and operational efficiencies of RFID across their supply chains.”
Michael Liard, RFID and barcode research director, ABI Research said: “The growth of passive UHF RFID adoption has resulted in additional performance requirements – needing to read more tags, in more applications, with greater efficiency. With the FX9500 industrial fixed reader, Motorola Solutions addresses these high-performance requirements, allowing industrial enterprise RFID users to secure a four- or eight-port passive UHF reader that meets user cost-performance and application needs.” - - TradeArabia News Service
