1101 UHF RFID reader for the Motorola MC70/75/75A

  • The reader upgrades the Motorola™ MC70, MC75 and MC75A terminals to provide the capability of reading and writing EPC Class 1 Generation 2 (ISO 18000-6C) transponders. The combination of the two devices provides a versatile mobile handheld UHF RFID reader solution. The reader snaps on to the bottom of the host terminal. A rechargeable battery is used in the reader to avoid reducing the run time of the host terminal. The reader battery and host terminal can be charged together giving a “one piece, one charge” solution. If necessary the battery can be swapped out in applications requiring continuous operation.

    The reader is suitable for operation in European (ETSI EN 302 208) and US (FCC Part 15) regulatory environments,  including Dense Reader Mode.

    The reader includes a circularly polarised antenna facing out of the rear side.

    Requires Motorola Power Supply PWRS-14000-249R and line cord for charging, and a Micro USB cable for synchronisation (can be purchased separately as the 1101 Accessory Pack)
