RFD5500 RFID Reader

The RFD5500 UHF RFID sledge extends the value of your MC55, MC65 or MC67 mobile computer by transforming it into a state-of-the-art handheld RFID reader for enterprise environments.


Bring the benefits of RFID to your enterprise by adding industry-leading RFID technology to your MC55, MC65 or MC67 mobile computers. The versatile RFD5500 UHF RFID sledge transforms your mobile computer into a state-of-the-art RFID handheld reader that is at home in retail storefronts, carpeted business offices, hospitals and many other enterprise environments. Its patented omni-directional antenna delivers a superior read range and coverage area, well suited to the most read-intensive applications. You get faster read rates, higher throughput, and improved productivity in your operation.



    Many RFID handheld readers can identify the general proximity of an item – for example, a shelf. The RFD5500 offers a unique combination of intuitive audible and visual cues to quickly guide a worker to the precise location of any desired item. As the device moves closer to a specific item, a tone beeps louder and faster, while a sliding graphical bar increases in size. 


    Most RFID readers offer you a choice of antennae: linear polarisation for a longer read range or circular polarisation for wider coverage. Zebra's patented omnidirectional antenna offers the best of both worlds – a superior read range and superior coverage area. The orientation agnostic antenna in the RFD5500 delivers extraordinary reliabiltiy and there’s no need to precisely align the reader with the tag.


    The RFD5500 adds best-in-class RFID data capture technologies to the best-in-class bar code scanning ability of your MC55, MC65 or MC67. The versatility of using two readers in a single device means employees can locate products, read non-line-of-sight RFID data, and capture even damaged and poor quality 1D barcodes without interrupting workflow.
