RFID Printers

RFID Printers can be used to print and encode RFID smart labels and hang tags.

How do RFID Printers Work?

RFID Smart label printer/encoders use media that has an RFID inlay (chip and antenna combination) embedded within the label material. An RFID encoder inside the printer writes data to the tag by radio frequency transmission. The transmission is focused for the specific location of the tag within the label. Bar codes, text, and graphics are printed as usual.

RFID Tag Quality Checks

Printer/encoders should perform two tag quality checks. The first check should be done prior to encoding to make sure the inlay is functional and can receive data. The second check should verify that data was written and stored on the chip correctly. Optimally, encoding the inlay and printing the smart label should require only a single pass through the printer/encoder.
