Features and Benefits
Add Speed and Accuracy to Your Operations
Designed to make you more effective in your environment, the RFD40 reads 1300+ tags per second, up to 30% faster than the next leading competitor, as well as a 20+ foot read rand and ultra-accurate item-finder mode.

Adaptive Solutions and Next Generation Connectivity
The RFD40 sled is fully enabled to support Zebra’s current mobile computers as well as new mobile computers as they come out. The easy-to-change tool-free sled adaptors allow associates to swap out the adaptor quickly while maintaining compatibility without the need to send devices to IT for retrofitting.
Durability to Withstand Everyday Environments
The RFD40 sled has a 5-foot drop to concrete specification and a 500 cycle 0.5 meter/1.6 foot tumble specification to replicate real world knocks and bumps. With an IP54 sealing for dust and water protection and an extended operating temperature range of -10°C to 50°C/14°F to 122°F, the RFD40 will meet the demanding needs of your workplace.
Flexible Charging for Both Sled and Mobile Computer
RFD40 charging solutions provide users a variety of ways to power up. Featuring 2 sets of charging pins, each cradle cup can charge the RFD40 sled by itself, the mobile computer by itself, or the combination of the RFD40 sled and mobile computer when attached together. A USB-C port on the bottom of the RFD40 sled allows for the connection of the sled to a Windows-based PC, which also enables the RFD40 sled to be used as a tethered RFID reader.
No Host? No Problem!
If a real-time connection to backend systems is not available, batch mode enables the collection of up to 40,000 RFID tags. Just sync to upload the data from the RFD40 sled to the host device at any time.
