Rugged, lightweight and ergonomically well-balanced, the new European R1 version of Motorola's high-performance RFID handheld reader is compliant with current ETSI 302 208 standards required for operation in countries in the European Union. The new R1 version offers integrated RFID reading-writing and bar-code scanning, and can switch to multiple channels and transmit 100 percent of the time. The long read ranges produced by the linear antennae make the reader suitable for a variety of retail, manufacturing, transportation and logistics applications, including shipping and receiving, work-in-process, item-level in-store inventory management and asset, baggage and cargo tracking. The new European version of the MC9090-G RFID handheld reader, expected to be available in mid-September, will be priced at $4,995. It is available with Motorola's Service from the Start with Comprehensive Coverage.
Motorola has also announced a global firmware upgrade that will offer an LLRP (Low Level Reader Protocol) interface for increased flexibility to its XR family of fixed RFID readers. By integrating LLRP, Motorola's XR family of products can "plug and play" into any preexisting RFID system, allowing for a simpler implementation, improved performance and easier modifications and enhancements to systems already developed. In addition, the reader will also now be compliant with the latest ETSI 302 208 standard, eliminating duty cycle restrictions and increasing frequency agility for users in the European Union. The upgrade will provide extended read-write Gen 2 memory support (with 512 bit max packet size), enabling XR readers to more efficiently process a large amount of tag information. The firmware upgrade will be applicable to XR440, XR450 and XR480 fixed readers, and is expected to be widely available in October via a free download on the Motorola Web site.
