Zebra Technologies Corporation has announced a new portfolio of easy-to-deploy, integrated RFID portals. Zebra’s integrated UHF RFID portals are ideal for asset and workflow management, traceability, and compliance applications in a variety of industrial and commercial environments including warehouses, pharmaceutical manufacturing plants, and retail backrooms.
Zebra is introducing four new integrated solutions that make it easier and more convenient for businesses and specialized PartnerConnect partners to efficiently deploy RFID in the US and Canada.
- The Zebra Transition RFID Portal is used primarily at dock doors to automate and improve the efficiency of previously manual data capture and product flow operations where human intervention and/or manual barcode scanning is required.
- The Zebra Wall-Mount RFID Portal is fully enclosed and easily mounts near doorways, storage rooms, and hallways in offices and warehouses to help track a variety of assets such as IT devices, pharmaceutical items, and retail inventory.
- Offering a unique form factor designed to automatically read assets traveling down a conveyer, the Zebra Fixed RFID Tunnel can monitor workflow, validate boxed products, and improve shipping accuracy.
- Zebra’s Integrated RFID Table uses a fixed reader mounted within a custom-built table supporting sorting, packing, and compliance workflows, for example lab and specimen tracking in healthcare.
“Zebra is expanding the industry’s broadest, field-proven RFID portfolio and providing businesses with unmatched accuracy and interoperability, enabling them to deploy high-performance solutions that anticipate real world challenges and elevate the performance of every system, device, tag, and worker,” said Matt Seltz, general manager of location solutions at Zebra Technologies. “Our new integrated RFID portals will provide organizations with the confidence to know where their assets are any point in time and help increase the accuracy and speed of receiving, put away, consume, and resell.”
Zebra’s new integrated RFID portals were designed with frontline users, workplaces, and workflows in mind, building in ease of use, reliability, and ruggedness. Featuring specialized antennas, Zebra’s integrated RFID portals ensure accurate read rates. Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) connections allow easy installation and deployment.
