Motorola XR450 RFID Reader features both bi- and mono-static antenna ports on one platform

Motorola today announced the new Motorola XR450, an industrial-class fixed radio-frequency identification (RFID) reader featuring both bi- and mono-static antenna ports on one platform to protect RFID investments and decrease deployment complexities. This new two-in-one solution provides an ideal high-performance RFID reader for both item-level tracking and more demanding supply chain applications.
The Motorola XR450 RFID reader offers customers the ability to select between using four bi-static ports that require dual antennas or four mono-static ports that require only one antenna for transmitting or receiving tag data.

The new Motorola XR450 RFID reader is certified to run on both Microsoft Biz Talk Server 2006 R2 and IBM Premises Websphere 6.0 and 6.1. It also supports Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 2.0 for hosting customer applications directly on the reader. The new Motorola XR450 fixed RFID reader is expected to ship beginning in July 2008.
