Motorola RD5000 Mobile RFID Reader

Extend the reach of your RFID network and achieve a new level of visibility into inventory and assets with the RD5000 Mobile RFID Reader. This compact, rugged reader can be installed almost anywhere — on material handling equipment such as forklifts, on mobile carts, portable skate wheel conveyors or even in hard to reach places where a cabled fixed reader would not be practical.

Designed for true mobility and mobile applications, this device provides wireless LAN connectivity so product is easily tracked as it moves throughout your operations. The result is granular real-time information — allowing you to achieve a new level of productivity and efficiency throughout your enterprise.

100% free of network, power and antenna cables
Facilitates implementation of RFID read points in new areas of the enterprise, expands visibility of product movement and enables new productivity-saving applications.

Integrated 802.11a/b/g WLAN radios
Flexible, reliable connection with wireless LAN for real-time inventory visibility; features unique to Symbol that deliver superior and reliable wireless connectivity.

Integrated Bluetooth®
Enables wireless communication between RD5000 and an on-board vehicle computer for a completely cable-free solution; ensures constant connection to the onboard computer — even in areas wherethere is no reliable WLAN connection.

Integrated rugged antenna
Eliminates the need for separate antennas, cables, mounting brackets and connectors to further simplify installation and reduce maintenance.

Integrated battery with optional external power source
Self-contained battery power enables true mobility and eliminates the need to run power cabling — and the associated expense; optional external power source available.

Interactive sensing technologies
Acceleration sensor and proximity sensor facilitate a variety of applications — for example, can be used to maximize battery life by enabling the RD5000 to activate RFID operation based on vehicle motion; triggers RFID reads based on proximity to objects, such as pallets.

IP66 sealing
Completely sealed against dust and jets of water, ensuring reliable operation in nearly any environment, from the warehouse to the yard and more.

Industry standard platform
Intel® XScale® 624 MHz PXA270 processor and enhanced memory architecture enable easy integration into your existing technology environment.

Microsoft® Windows® CE 5.0
Advanced operating system provides robust application support.

MC9000 series compatible battery and chargers
Significantly reduces investment in batteries and chargers for enterprises that are already using Symbol's MC9000 series mobile handheld computers.
