RFD2000 UHF RFID Sled
Easily add high performance UHF RFID to Zebra’s TC20 mobile computer
The RFD2000 UHF RFID sled is a compact, lightweight device that easily adds UHF RFID tag reading, writing and locationing capability to Zebra’s TC201 RFID-ready mobile computer. This winning combination is a complete retail solution that makes inventory management, shopper interactions and assisted selling a breeze.
The RFD2000 was built with store associates and shoppers in mind. Superior ergonomics and a compact, lightweight design bring comfort even to inventory management tasks. And the modern design fits right into shopper-facing areas, even in the most design conscious stores.
Purpose-built for the TC20, the RFD2000 delivers the same robust RFID performance you would expect in a dedicated RFID device. You get the flexibility to add and remove RFID functionality as needed — but unlike many sleds, there’s no compromise on performance. Zebra’s high-performance ASIC radio technology provides superior sensitivity, delivering a read rate that is 15% faster than the competition. The result is lightning-fast inventory counts — your workers can walk down an aisle at a natural pace, yet capture every tag they pass.
Workers can just slip the RFD2000 onto the TC20 whenever RFID is needed. And while the RFD2000 holds the TC20 securely in place, the RFD2000 is easily detached, returning the TC20 to its natural compact and pocketable size.
Finding a misplaced item in your store can be like finding a needle in a haystack. But Geiger-counter mode makes it easy.
Capture all tags within range of the RFD2000 — no need to press and hold the trigger.
Easily create combination RFID tags that also contain barcode data, providing more flexibility in inventory management. Simply scan a barcode, then scan an RFID tag to automatically write the barcode to the tag. And you can choose to write to one tag or many tags, all with one press of the trigger.
With the RFD2000, the TC20 becomes a triggered hand-held reader that can capture barcodes or RFID tags, bringing comfort to scan intensive tasks.
Add RFID to your TC20 Mobile Computers with the RFD2000 Sled —
and get the benefits of high-performance RFID in your store
