The RFD8500 Reader has four major settings:

RFID Transmit Power Level
Regulatory Configuration
General Settings
Bluetooth Settings

1. RFID Transmit Power Level

This setting controls whether the power level for RFID transmissions can be set for reading and writing of RFID tags. This setting can be adjusted to compensate for variations in conditions at the site, such as obstructions or distance to the target. When unchecked, transmission power reverts to the default or previously set level.

The RFID Transmit Power Level setting is used to specify the RF power level (in tenths of a dBm) for transmitting RFID tag contents.
For example, enter "295" to specify 29.5 dBm. Input value rules are integers from 1–300.

Open 123 scan application in your computer and connect the USB cable
Go to Start > Config file RFD8500
You will be navigated to a new tab: ‘Factory Default’
Click ‘Start Configuration Wizard’
Tap on RFID custom settings
Click Advanced Configuration
Change the level of RFID Transmit power level from ‘0 to 300’ dBm.
Click ‘Done’
Click ‘Load to Scanner’ (wait till the configuration will load to the reader)

2. Regulatory Configuration

RF regulations typically vary from one country to another or from one region to another due to the legacy usage of various portions of the RF spectrum. In the technology’s early years, various countries or regions assigned different chunks of the RF spectrum for different uses. Zebra RFD8500 supports various countries. To learn more about RFID regulations, use the link given below

Channel Hopping:

Controls whether the device will use channel hopping (also known as frequency hopping), which can help prevent interference when multiple RFID readers are used in close proximity. The use of this parameter might be necessary for compliance with local regulatory requirements.

Channel Masks:

Used to specify which RFID channel(s) to use and which to mask. Channels are specified according to their index number, which is derived from a fixed channel sequence for a given country or region. Refer to your RFID reader user guide for region-specific information. The use of this parameter might be necessary for compliance with local regulatory requirements.

Input value rules:

String from 1–255 comma-separated index numbers. For example, to enable channels 865.7, and 866.9 in a region with a channel sequence of 865.7, 866.3, 866.9 and 867.5, enter "1,3" in this field to use the first and third values in the list (and mask the others).
