Motorola RD5000 – A new class of RFID reader — a new level of visibility. Motorola Technologies introduces the next phase in the evolution of RFID with the Motorola RD5000 Mobile RFID Reader. By adding mobility to Motorola’s proven fixed reader technology, companies can extend the reach of their RFID network throughout the enterprise environment. Designed for true mobility, the device is cable-free, provides realtime wireless LAN connectivity and has motion-smart features that work together to help conserve battery power. The completely selfcontained device offers an integrated battery and antenna as well as a very small footprint for easy installation and deployment. From the warehouse and loading dock to the retail floor and more, the Motorola RD5000 increases the level of visibility of inventory and other assets — as well as increases the benefits gained from RFID-enabled real-time information management.
The Motorola RD5000 is a wireless, compact mobile RFID reader that can be installed anywhere — on material handling equipment like forklifts and clamp trucks, on mobile carts, portable skate wheel conveyors, or even in hard to reach locations where a cabled reader would not be practical. With the Motorola RD5000 , assets are easily tracked as it moves throughout the enterprise. The rugged design ensures continuous operation in the most demanding environments, both inside and outside your four walls. The result is a new level of granular real-time information — allowing you to realize a new level of productivity and efficiency throughout your operations.
In the warehouse
The Motorola RD5000 is ideal in the warehouse and distribution center, where its rugged compact design and mobile features are a natural fit for adding RFIDcapabilities to forklifts, clamp trucks and other material handling equipment. When used in conjunction with a mobile computer such as Motorola’s VC5090, a forklift operator who picks up an RFID-tagged pallet for put-away can now receive additional, important information when a tag is read. In addition to the exact location to place the product, the operator can also receive the shortest route to the put-away location, as well as instant notification if the product is placed in the wrong spot. Now, your inventory is placed in the right location, available when needed, and easily visible, which eliminates overstocking due to ordering of product that is not actually needed — but simply misplaced. Products on clamp trucks can be identified, ensuring the right amount of pressure is automatically applied to provide a sure grip — without damage.
On the retail floor
By using the Motorola RD5000 on mobile push-carts, retail sales personnel can take a complete inventory of the retail front and back rooms by simply rolling the cart through the store. Real-time inventory data is then available to retail workers on a handheld PDA, such as Motorola’s MC50 or MC70, enabling instant inventory checks or analysis of inventory data. Since an accurate inventory can be taken in a mere fraction of the time it would take to manually count inventory, retailers can conduct daily inventories quickly, easily and cost-effectively, providing a new level of insight into inventory metrics. Ordering can be improved since purchase trends are readily visible; seasonal items can be easily identified to ensure replenishment on a timely basis; and more. You can obtain an immediate accounting of new shipments when utilizing mobile carts and portable conveyors equipped with the Motorola RD5000 mobile reader. RFID-tagged goods are read in real time as they are transported off the truck and into your facility.
In a delivery zone
Since the Motorola RD5000 is completely cable-free, it can be mounted safely and securely on portable skate wheel conveyors to verify shipment deliveries. The portable conveyor is easily moved from delivery vehicle to delivery vehicle, with the mobile reader providing instant identification of all items within the shipment — without opening the boxes or pallets. Receiving processes are streamlined and accurate.
In other challenging locations
The self-contained design of the Motorola RD5000 is also ideal for stationary deployment in areas previously unsuitable for RFID readers. The compact design can be mounted nearly anywhere, with minimal intrusion in the working area. Built to endure bumps from equipment and rough handling, as well as exposure to dust, water, and grease, it is rugged enough to be installed in the toughest environments and compact enough to fit into spaces where a cabled, stationary reader would just not be practical — such as pallet stretch wrap machines.
