Fixed RFID Reader
Compact and powerful
The new FX7500 Fixed RFID Reader introduces advanced RFID radio technology for faster, more accurate read rates and more consistent performance even in challenging environments. The new radio is paired with a more flexible Linux-based network architecture that integrates the tools and open-standards interfaces needed for fast, easy deployment with RFID and back-end applications.
- Warehouse Management
- Large Open Areas
- Business-Class Environments
EASY TO DEPLOY, SIMPLE TO MANAGE
Installation is dead simple. Hang the supplied bracket, then snap the reader in place. No outlet nearby? No problem. Integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE) lets you place the FX7500 where it is needed without installing extra outlets – ideal for large open areas. Once plugged into the network, devices are auto-detected.
SMART LOOKS, SMART INVESTMENT
The FX7500 comes in a sleek, attractive form factor with a low profile and compact footprint, at home in nearly any business environment. But it also looks good on the balance sheet, with an impressive array of integrated features and functionality that pack value for your business class applications.
BETTER PERFORMANCE. BETTER VALUE.
We created a new RFID radio technology, purposely designed from the ground up for faster, more accurate read rates, and more consistent performance even in challenging environments.
Peak performance at all times
Advanced fixed RFID reader for business class environments
The faster your business moves, the more your business-critical applications will demand from an RFID reader. And these days, no one is slowing down their pace of business. So that’s where Zebra began with the FX7500 Fixed RFID Reader. We created a new RFID radio technology, purposely designed for faster, more accurate read rates, and more consistent performance. Then we paired that radio with a new, more flexible Linux-based network architecture that integrates the tools and open-standard interfaces you need for fast, easy deployment with your RFID and back-end applications. The result is a fixed RFID reader that sets a new performance standard–delivering peak performance at all times with excellent reader sensitivity and better interference rejection, at a lower cost per read point.
Easy to deploy, simple to manage–in any enterprise, large or small
Ever wished you could minimize the gap between your technology dream and its reality? Everything about the FX7500 is designed to get your RFID plan off the drawing board and into your business environment, without delays, complications or unexpected costs. Installation is dead simple. Hang the supplied bracket, then snap the reader in place. No outlet nearby? No problem. Integrated Power over Ethernet (PoE) lets you place the FX7500 where it is needed without installing extra outlets–ideal for large open areas.
Once plugged into the network, devices are auto-detected; for most applications, predefined configuration files and a built-in testing tool let you simply verify that your FX7500 readers are up, running and ready to operate. Port configuration options let you deploy exactly the number of read points you need–no need for expensive overlaps. For large scale global deployments, the FX7500 helps reduce costs by conforming out-of-the-box with major worldwide RFID standards and interfaces, including FCC and ETSI EN 302 208, LLRP and Reader Management. IPv6, FIPS and TLS compliance help ensure network security. A built-in USB host port* with select third party adaptors provides easy connectivity with Wi-Fi™ and Bluetooth® networks. Add the FX7500’s Auto mode configuration and third-party application hosting capabilities, and you have an unbeatable workhorse that is adaptable to multiple application environments–the ideal platform for your RFID solution.
All-new high performance radio technology
Higher sensitivity, improved interference rejection and echo cancellation means you get the best-in-class dense reader mode performance, up to 1200+ tags/sec in FM0 mode.
ADVANCED FIXED RFID READER FOR BUSINESS-CLASS ENVIRONMENTS
Integrated power over ethernet (POE), optically isolated GPIO, USB client* and host ports with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity
All the tools you need for fast, easy deployment and simplified on-going management of your RFID applications are built right into the FX7500 architecture.
2-port and 4-port reader configurations
More configuration options mean more flexibility to optimize your read field. Deploy precisely the number of read points you need for proper coverage, no more, no less, and reduce your TCO.
Plenum area rated
The FX7500 is approved and suitable for environmental air handling space installation, so it can operate effectively within walls and ceilings.
Support for worldwide standards
Supports FCC and ETSI EN 302 208 in either 4-port or 2-port mono-static antenna configurations, EPC standards-based defined reader management, and auto-discovery flexible firmware upgrade features.
