Do you have a UHF RFID tag in your hand and would you prefer MIL900 or ZEBRA RFD8500 to read it? We know you are in a difficult dilemma, but we are here to eliminate your confusion.
These are the issues we will address when comparing these two devices;
- Reading distance
Let's see what differences there are between RFGATE MIL900 and ZEBRA RFD8500.
We can say that the Mil900 surpasses the Zebra RFD8500 series in terms of portability. The Mil900, which is easily divided into 3 parts, can be carried much more easily and practically than the Zebra RFD8500. Another issue where the RFGATE brand is ahead of Zebra is the external architecture of the product.
Another most curious issue of users is the performance levels. We can say that both of these products perform quite high reading performances compared to other readers. However, it is very difficult to make a reader performance comparison between the two. It is almost impossible to say that they are better or worse than each other in this regard. Likewise, the remote reading distances of these two products are very close to each other. We cannot make a comparison between them in this regard.
One issue where the Zebra RFD8500 surpasses the Mil900 is durability. In this regard, Zebra has provided superiority to the RFGATE brand. It is at higher levels than Mil900 both in terms of product quality and impact resistance.
While Mil900 can read 500 labels per second, Zebra RFD8500 can read 900 and more labels per second.
The temperature range required for the Mil900 to operate is between -20 and +60 degrees. For Zebra RFD8500, these values vary between -10 and +40 degrees. We can say that the storage temperature values for both products are the same. These values vary between -20 and +60.
Mil900 and RFD8500 Technical Specifications
Zebra RFD8500 can be used on devices with Android 4.4 or IOS 8 operating systems. While the Mil900 uses Android 6.0, it cannot be used on devices with IOS system. Mil900 uses Bluetooth 4.0 version while Zebra RFD8500 uses Bluetooth 2.1 version. The battery of the Mil 900 is 6000 mAh, while the Zebra RFD8500 is 4410 mAh. When we look at these differences, we come to the following conclusion. Mil900 used a more technological system inside the reader compared to Zebra RFD8500.
Mil 900 does not need a phone or device to read. Therefore, there is no chamber where a device can be placed. Because Mil900 manufacturers have ensured that users can read without the need for a device. This is very economical for users. In Zebra RFD8500, it is not possible to read without a device. Accordingly, there is a mechanism at the top of the reader where you can place the device.
Finally, the most but the most curious issue. Price difference. As you have seen above, there is not much difference between the two readers except for durability. Accordingly, users prefer the Mil900 product because it is more affordable.
