FX7500 Fixed RFID Reader

Advanced Fixed RFID Reader For Business Class Environments

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. So that’s where Zebra began with the FX7500 Fixed RFID Reader. We created a new RFID radio technology, purposely designed for faster, more accurate read rates, and more consistent performance. 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.

FX7500 Fixed RFID Reader

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, predefined 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.


All-New High Performance Radio Technology

Higher sensitivity, improved interference rejection and echo cancellation means you get the best-in-class dense reader mode performance, up to 1200+ tags/sec in FM0 mode.

Easy to Deploy, Manage and Scale

MotionWorks Enterprise RFID Reader Management

With RFID Reader Management, you can easily deploy and manage a network of Zebra passive RFID readers. Fully compatible with our current portfolio of devices in this category, RFID Reader Management allows you to configure and monitor the status of every cloud-ready Zebra RFID reader in your system from one consolidated application, without requiring multiple tools to manage different types of readers.

IoT Connector

With IoT Connector, you can gather data from cloud-capable edge devices in a simple, consistent manner. Use the information and insights gained to make decisions in real time. Developed as a standard feature of our barcode scanners and RFID readers, IoT Connector is simple to configure—no coding required—and uses standard protocols within the Internet of Things.
