Fox IV Introduces New RFID Printer-Applicator
Fox IV Technologies has announced a new addition to its range of RFID printer-applicators, known as the SR2143LR, for the encoding, printing and application of high-frequency (HF) and ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID labels. The new printer-applicator is built using a Datamax-O'Neil M-Class Mark II printer, and is able to generate HF and UHF RFID labels in an array of label sizes, media and inlay designs.
The new printer-applicator also features the company's Out-of-Spec Tag Handling System to detect out-of-spec tags before they are passed through the supply chain. According to the company, the printer-applicator signals that a tag is out-of-spec or dead, and the signal initiates a process to print "VOID" on the tag and activate the Tag Handling System. From there, the solution allows the label to remain on the label liner by not peeling it at the printer-applicator peel point. Instead, it simply rolls over the peel point and is taken up on the rewind as part of the spent liner. If there are three "bad" tags in a row, the company indicates, the unit goes into fault mode.
Fox IV also manufactures other printer-applicator units incorporating different print engines, including Zebra Technologies' ZE500-4R print module, any of SATO's S84SE print modules, Datamax-O'Neil's A-Class Mark II print module and Avery Dennison's DPM module. All of these are plug-and-play modules that enable the print engine to be easily swapped out. The company also offers a unit with Printronix's T5000r RFID printer-encoder. Each of these models is UHF-only.
