The orientation agnostic antenna in the RFD5500 delivers extraordinary reliability and theres no need to precisely align the reader with the tag.

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. So your employees can locate any individual item, regardless of where it may be, quickly and easily.

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 versitility 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 bar codes without interrupting workflow. Meanwhile, you have fewer devices to purchase and manage, which translates to a lower cost of ownership.
