Motorola RD5000

The Motorola RD5000 Mobile RFID Reader


Motorola’s RD5000 is a mobile RFID reader.  It is wireless, compact, and can be installed almost anywhere.  In a warehouse it can be seen fixed on forklifts, clamp trucks, wheeled carts, or even fixed onto the wall or shelving unit.  The RD5000 can be used in one location for a certain application one day and then moved to an differently location for a different application the next.

The RD5000 is truly mobile as it is a wireless RFID reader adn it can go places where a corded reader would not be practical.  The RD5000 is rugged and compact, passing a 30 in drop to concrete specification and repetitive shock tests of over 3,500 70-g shocks and 21,600 60-g shocks.  The ruggedness and flexibility make the RD5000 a great fit for warehousing.  Forklifts with VC5090 mounted mobile computers can easily integrate the RD5000 for quick RFID capability.

The RD5000 uses the batteries and charges as the MC9000 Series which will dramatically reduce the investment of companies already using these units such as the MC9500-K mobile Computer.
