Reads 1D and 2D bar codes
Comprehensive bar code
Symbology support allows
you to capture all the bar
codes you need today —
and tomorrow
Increase productivity in scan intensive
applications with maximum flexibility,
comfort, functionality and performance
Whether your workers are handling and sorting
packages, picking or loading shipments in the
warehouse or scanning bar codes to meet
government regulations for tracking and tracing
of product, the RS507 Hands-Free Imager from
Motorola delivers the superior blend of technology,
form and function your workers need to achieve a
new level of scanning efficiency in your operations.
The advanced design offers more features and
functionality than any other ring scanner available
today. Truly superior ergonomics, including Bluetooth®
cordless freedom, provide unparalleled user comfort.
The unmatched rugged design ensures reliable
operation in the most demanding environments.
Best-in-class scanning, including support for 1D and
2D bar codes, ensures first time every time fast and
accurate capture of virtually any bar code. The RS507
pairs easily with most Motorola Mobile Computers,
allowing you to extend hands-free cordless scanning
to your workers wherever it will improve productivity.
Optional corded adapter for Motorola’s WT4000
provides an easy and cost-effective upgrade path
to 1D and 2D bar code scanning — without any
compromise in scanning performance. The RS507
will complement any voice picking application with
hands-free bar code scanning.
Best in class scanning performance
Built on the revolutionary Symbol SE4500 imaging
engine from Motorola, the RS507 delivers stunning
laser-like performance on both 1D and 2D bar
codes, regardless of lighting. The powerful 624 MHz
microprocessor decodes any bar code in milliseconds.
The patent pending fast-pulse illumination and fast
sensor shutter speed enable bar code decoding at
a full 60 frames per second, delivering outstanding
motion tolerance. Omni-directional scanning
eliminates the need to align bar code and scanner.
Advanced power management ensures more-thanample battery power for a full shift. The result is the
extraordinary scanning speed required to achieve
new levels of worker productivity — and operational
efficiency. Additionally, an extended scanning range
of up to 24 inches provides the flexibility to meet the
needs of many applications.
State of the art ergonomics
The advanced ergonomic design of the RS507
provides unrivaled freedom of movement and user
comfort — regardless of hand size, right- or lefthanded operation or whether gloves are worn.
The Bluetooth wireless connection to the Motorola
mobile computer allows users to wear the RS507 on
either hand — and the trigger swivel allows users
to switch from right to left hand use in seconds.
SE4500 imager: powerful
624 MHz processor, fast
sensor shutter speed and
patent pending fast-pulse
Superior laser-like
performance on 1D and
2D bar codes, improving
productivity in a wide variety
of applications
motion tolerance

scanning speed for all bar
codes, increasing throughput
and productivity — regardless
of application — including fast
moving conveyor belts
Unique aiming pattern
Bright central dot ensures
quick, accurate scanning —
even in bright sunlight
Multiple field
replaceable components
Ability to replace many
components in the field helps
keep devices in the hands of
users for improved uptime
Compatible with
Motorola’s Mobility
Software Platform (MSP)
Ability to remotely stage,
provision, monitor and
troubleshoot devices
dramatically simplifies and
reduces the costs associated
with deployment as well as
day-to-day management
Motorola Interactive Sensor
Technology (IST)
Patent-pending combination
of motion sensing and
proximity sensing enables
fast, intuitive automatic
triggering that improves
productivity while
maintaining battery life
A new two-finger design improves balance, while
the hygiene comfort pad helps protect knuckles
from bumps and scrapes, and a triggerless model
eliminates a substantial amount of thumb usage.
The omnidirectional scanner further reduces wrist
movement by eliminating the need to align scanner
and bar code.
The most rugged ring scanner available
The RS507 is the most rugged scanner in its class.
Stringent drop specifications and a broad operating
temperature range ensure reliable performance in
the warehouse dock and aisles, outside in the yard
and beyond the four walls out in the field. Performed
across the operating temperature range, the 6 ft./
1.8 m drop specification enables the device to
easily withstand everyday drops and bumps —
even in extreme heat or cold. A magnesium chassis
provides additional protection for the sensitive
electronics. The trigger is built for scan intensive
applications, rated for many millions of actuations —
and IP54 sealing protects the device against
moisture. Abrasion resistance helps protect the
most vulnerable areas of the device from everyday
wear and tear.
Maximum uptime…and a low
total cost of ownership
When uptime is crucial, Motorola’s end-to-end
mobility solutions deliver. Motorola’s signature
rugged design keeps your RS507 up and running,
day in and day out. Field replaceable components
eliminate the need to send the RS507 to the depot
to replace worn components, including straps,
comfort pads, the trigger swivel and triggerless strap
holder. Motorola’s Mobility Service Platform (MSP),
part of Motorola’s suite of mobility management
software applications, allows IT personnel to
remotely stage, provision, monitor and troubleshoot
your RS507 devices and their host Motorola devices,
regardless of where they are located — substantially
reducing management costs. To help protect your
investment, Motorola recommends Service from
the Start with Comprehensive Coverage. This unique
service plan sets the standard for post-deployment
support by covering normal wear and tear as well
as accidental damage to internal and external
components — significantly reducing unforeseen
repair expenses.
Proven technology…and a rapid
return on investment (ROI)
When you need scanning technology you can count
on every minute of every day, choose Motorola —
the inventor of bar code scanning as well as the
ring scanner. In addition to the features you need to
maximize on the job employee productivity, you’ll
enjoy investment protection and easy integration into
your existing technology environment. The ability to
scan 1D and 2D bar codes ensures support for the
applications of today and tomorrow. Existing
applications can be easily converted for use with
the RS507, protecting your existing investments
while providing a pain-free and cost-effective
migration path to corded 2D as well as cordless
1D/2D scanning.
