RFID Label Printers
RFID label printers, also called printer-encoders, combine a traditional bar code printer with a RFID encoder to print "smart labels". Smart labels contain UPC bar code information on the front with a programmed RFID tag sandwiched inbetween the paper layers. RFID label printers are used for both product shipping labels as well as "smart" wristbands, and can encode (write) information to RFID chips at the same time they are print UPC barcode information.
RFID printers encode data in the high-frequency (13.56 MHz RFID) and ultra-high frequency (900 MHz RFID) ranges. RFID printers connect to a PC with a serial, parallel, USB or Ethernet connection.
