EXTEND THE FUNCTIONALITY OF YOUR PRINTER

Let us tell you more about
the RFD5500

  • EASY-TO-USE LOCATING CAPABILITY

    Many RFID handheld readers can identify the general proximity of an item – for example, a shelf. The RFD5500 offers a unique combination of intuitive audible and visual cues to quickly guide a worker to the precise location of any desired item. As the device moves closer to a specific item, a tone beeps louder and faster, while a sliding graphical bar increases in size. 

  • SUPERIOR RFID PERFORMANCE

    Most RFID readers offer you a choice of antennas: linear polarization for a longer read range or circular polarization for wider coverage. Zebra's patented omnidirectional antenna offers the best of both worlds – a superior read range and superior coverage area. The orientation agnostic antenna in the RFD5500 delivers extraordinary reliability and there’s no need to precisely align the reader with the tag.

  • DUAL DATA CAPTURE FUNCTIONALITY

    The RFD5500 adds best-in-class RFID data capture technologies to the best-in-class bar code scanning ability of your MC55, MC65 or MC67. The versatility of using two readers in a single device means employees can locate products, read non-line-of-sight RFID data, and capture even damaged and poor quality 1D barcodes without interrupting workflow.
