CHANNEL PARTNERS Motorola Solutions, an elite sponsor of the Fall 2011 Channel Partners Conference & Expo, has unveiled its latest fixed RFID reader, which the company calls perfect for the manufacturing and distribution sectors.
Thats because the industrial FX9500 comes with greater accuracy for scanning hard-to-read items such as pallets, cases and items at dock doors and conveyors. PartnerEmpower VARs can get the new FX9500 through their distributors; Motorola Solutions also provides loaners and discounts on demo gear.
The FX9500 comes in four-port/antenna configurations, as well as eight-port/antenna configurations that can cover more portals or dock doors with fewer readers, Motorola Solutions said. This approach saves on deployment costs and achieves a lower cost per read point. The FX9500 also allows for bistatic operation, where separate cables are used for antenna transmitting and receiving, for even higher RFID performance.
Businesses look to RFID and industrial fixed RFID reader solutions to achieve near 100 percent shipping, receiving and order accuracy,” said Mike Poldino, general manager of RFID for Motorola Solutions. Our new high-performance FX9500 reader will enable organizations to leverage the increased asset visibility and operational efficiencies of RFID across their supply chains.”
