By all accounts RFID and barcoding will coexist for the foreseeable future. New RFID label printer applicators combine these two technologies for the best of both worlds. These printers are able to print barcodes, human-readable text, and graphics on the surface of a label and then encode the RFID chip embedded as part of the label.
The ID Technology Model 250r is designed to read, write, verify and apply RFID tags in top, bottom and side label applications all as one seamless process. Tags that fail to read can be discarded prior to application without disrupting product flow. The Model 250r features the same rugged design and modular configuration as the original IDT 250 Series printer applicator, as well as, "hot swap" spare assemblies that install in minutes. ID Technology offers a choice of Zebra, Sato and Datamax RFID print engines. The result is an RFID enabled printer applicator that adapts to your production environment.
