Zebra ST500 Transition Point Integrated RFID Reader



Zebra ST500 Transition Point Integrated RFID Reader

When inventory moves in or out of your facility through receiving and entry/exit points, you need to know which direction it is traveling to understand where it is headed to better track location or prevent theft. Where standard RFID readers detect the presence of a tagged item, this specially designed ready-to-use Zebra ST500 Transition Point Integrated RFID Reader utilizes industry-leading advanced RFID technology to not only track items on the move, but to also determine whether items are entering or leaving an area. Deployment is easy — with Zebra’s advanced FX7500 Fixed RFID reader and pre-configured ST5500 antenna integrated into one housing, there’s only one piece of hardware to install. And since you can suspend it from the ceiling, it’s easy to install in virtually any facility and any environment.
