Multi-OS and multi-platform
Leverage your mobile computing strategy and add world-class data collection capability in an economical way. Provides the peace of mind that the investment you make today will serve your business needs tomorrow.

Fast RFID tag capture in various environments
With AutoMac and our patent-pending breakthrough antenna design, you get maximum read/write speeds and coverage required to maximize workforce efficiency.

High performance battery for full shift operation
Our unique power-optimizing algorithm delivers the superior battery cycle times that ensure full-shift power, even with intensive usage.

Flexible connectivity options: Bluetooth® or Batch Mode
Enable a real-time wireless connection to your mobile or backend systems via Bluetooth 2.1 or later. If a wireless connection is not available, batch mode enables the collection of up to 500 bar codes and/or 42,000 RFID tags. Just sync to upload the data from the RFD8500 to the host device at any time.

Flexible deployment options 
Permanently attach to a compatible mobile device to create a dedicated inventory management device; temporarily attach to enable RFID when and where you need it on the mobile device of your choice, bringing comfort to inventory management tasks; deploy as separate devices — workers can put the host mobile computer in a pocket or on a desk to protect the device and create a lighter RFID solution. 

Prevent counterfeiting and protect consumer privacy with EPC Global Gen2 v2
Protect profitability, customer safety and privacy with some of the latest RFID features. Cryptographic tag authentication provides extensive protection against tag cloning, allowing you to deploy non-clonable tags to prevent counterfeit product from entering your supply chain. In addition, the RFD8500 allows businesses to protect a consumer’s post-sales privacy, for instance, by hiding data until a tag is interrogated by the RFD8500 with an untraceable privilege — when a purchased product is returned for a refund or exchange.

Easy to deploy: attach and remove in seconds with standard Quad Lock mounts and custom-tailored adapters
Just twist to lock onto or remove the RFD8500 from any Zebra or third-party mobile computer via a Quad Lock or slide-on/slide-off Zebra custom-tailored adaptor.

Instantly capture any printed or electronic 1D/2D bar code
Zebra’s SE4710 enterprise-class imager offers proprietary PRZM Intelligent Imaging technology, a megapixel sensor and advanced optics for lightning-fast capture of 1D and 2D bar codes — even if they are dirty, damaged or poorly printed.

Easily toggle between RFID and bar code scanning
Users can simply tap on a button to switch between RFID and bar code scanning modes on the fly, maximizing ease of use and productivity.

Fast and easy application development with Zebra’s unique ZETI protocol
Our powerful Zebra Easy Text Interface (ZETI) can be used across many OS platforms, eliminating the need to utilize a Software Development Kit (SDK) to integrate RFD8500 features into your application. This human readable ASCII protocol makes it fast and easy for the host to communicate with RFD8500 without the need to create an actual application, reducing application development time and cost.
