ZEBRA FX7500

ADVANCED FIXED RFID READER FOR BUSINESS CLASS ENVIRONMENTS

BETTER PERFORMANCE. BETTER VALUE. THAT’S WHERE WE STARTED.

You know that the right RFID solution can help you keep track of the people and products that matter most to you – and save valuable time and money in the process – but only if the technology can capture data quickly, accurately and cost-effectively enough to keep up with your business. The faster your business moves, the more your business-critical applications will demand from an RFID reader. And these days, no one is slowing down their pace of business. RFID begins with the radio. So that’s where Zebra began with the FX7500 Fixed RFID Reader. We created a new RFID radio technology, purposely designed from the ground up for faster, more accurate read rates, and more consistent performance even in challenging environments. This software-based radio technology effectively future-proofs your RFID investment by delivering flexibility to implement future upgrades and improvements with minimal investment. Then we paired that radio with a new, more flexible Linux-based network architecture that integrates the tools and open-standard interfaces you need for fast, easy deployment with your RFID and back-end applications. The result is a fixed RFID reader that sets a new performance standard – delivering peak performance at all times with excellent reader sensitivity and better interference rejection, at a lower cost per read point. It works better. It costs less.

EASY TO DEPLOY, SIMPLE TO MANAGE – IN ANY ENTERPRISE, LARGE OR SMALL

Ever wished you could minimize the gap between your technology dream and its reality? Everything about the FX7500 is designed to get your RFID plan off the drawing board and into your business environment, without delays, complications or unexpected costs. Installation is dead simple. Hang the supplied bracket, then snap the reader in place. No outlet nearby? No problem. Integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE) lets you place the FX7500 where it is needed without installing extra outlets – ideal for large open areas. Once plugged into the network, devices are auto-detected; for most applications, pre-defined configuration files and a built-in testing tool let you simply verify that your FX7500 readers are up, running and ready to operate. Port configuration options let you deploy exactly the number of read points you need – no need for expensive overlaps. For large scale global deployments, the FX7500 helps reduce costs by conforming out-of-the-box with major worldwide RFID standards and interfaces, including FCC and ETSI EN 302 208, LLRP and Reader Management. IPv6, FIPS and TLS compliance help ensure network security. A built-in USB host port with select third party adaptors provides easy connectivity with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth networks. Add the FX7500’s Auto mode configuration and third-party application hosting capabilities, and you have an unbeatable workhorse that is adaptable to multiple application environments – the ideal platform for your RFID solution.

SMART LOOKS, SMART INVESTMENT

The FX7500 comes in a sleek, attractive form factor with a low profile and compact footprint, at home in nearly any business environment. But it also looks good on the balance sheet, with an impressive array of integrated features and functionality that pack value for your business class applications. An integrated optically isolated General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) interface means there’s no need to purchase, install and manage additional hardware. The ability to host productivity-enhancing, third-party software tools, like Microsoft BizTalk and IBM’s Web Sphere, makes it easy to support your business operations. Available two or four monostatic port option adds deployment flexibility so you can purchase only the readers you need, no more, no less. In short, building on the FX7500 lets you protect your RFID investment and achieve a lower total cost of ownership.
