Gen 2 RFID compliant smart label printer encoders from Zebra Technologies and Peacock Bros.
Zebra Technologies RFID XiIIIPlus series smart label printers now have Gen2 RFID tag encoding ability built in as standard. The 2nd Generation of RFID tags (Gen2) are far superior to the Gen1 version offering more data storage, faster read / write speeds and higher levels of data encryption, and is quickly replacing existing Gen 1 RFID smart tag operations.
Peacock Bros., Zebra Technologies largest importer and distributor of Zebra Printers in Australia and New Zealand can now supply Xi series smart tag RFID barcode printer encoders Gen2 ready, making the upgrade to this new technology easy to facilitate. Both the Zebra 110XiIII and 170XiIII RFID printers will have the Gen2 tag capability, reliable performance and speed to encode and read Gen2 smart tags.
Gen 2 smart tags offer a wider operating frequency range of 860 to 960 MHz and can store up to 512 bits of EPC as opposed to the maximum 64 bit storage capacity of the previous Gen 1 RFID tag. Gen 2 smart RFID tags offer much faster encoding speeds, only limited by the speed of your reader or encoder and include the ability to use 32 bit passwords to lock or protect the data encoded.
The Zebra Technologies Xi series of direct thermal and / or thermal transfer barcode label printers have been one of the most highly sought after barcode label printer in Australia and New Zealand for many years and now the pre-installed Gen2 smart tag printer encoder models offer more value than ever before. The RFID Xi series are the only printer / encoders to embed ThingMagic’s Mercury4e RFID reader module, supports both multiple protocols and multiple antennas.
The Mercury4e uses advanced software defined radio technology to read any RFID tag, including all variants of EPC Class 1 and 0, as well as Matrics 0+, ISO 18000-06B and Phillips UCODE 1.19, with no compromise in accuracy or performance. The standard “Program position” feature also allows users to place transponders virtually anywhere within a smart tag embedded thermal label, and an RFID counter automatically keeps track of both the good and unusable labels.
Peacock Bros., Zebra Technologies authorized RFID specialist, can also upgrade existing Gen 1 R110XiIIPlus and R170XiIIIPlus printer encoders to Gen 2 smart tag, save many businesses that already have RFID pilots or applications using RFID technology thousands of dollars upgrade. Peacock Bros are also the Australian distributor of UPMRafsec, one of the worlds leading RFID tag manufacturers producing Gen 2 smart tag embedded thermal barcode labels. Labels can be made to order to suit the most difficult environments.
Peacock Bros., today can manufacture RFID smart tagged thermal barcode labels, supply the latest in RFID printer encoders and readers and install complete RFID systems.
