Let Us Tell You More About the FX9600

  • Top-of-the-Line Performance

    When it comes to performance, the FX9600 delivers the best. The exceptionally high RF sensitivity delivers the greatest accuracy and longer read ranges, even in dense RF environments with challenging materials. And with the most power in its class, you can support the highest throughput, as well as all of your sophisticated software applications.

  • Unrivalled Deployment Simplicity

    Host embedded applications directly on the FX9600, reducing deployment time, cost and complexity. With support for PoE and PoE+, there’s no need to run power drops to each reader — and with PoE+ or a 24V power supply, even long cable runs won’t reduce available RF power.

  • The Industry's Best TCO

    Designed for tough environments, the rugged FX9600 can handle it all — damp dusty work areas, extreme heat and subzero temperatures. And with the eight-port model, you can cover more dock doors and portals with fewer readers, significantly lowering your investment, deployment and management costs.
