Frequently Asked Questions

What is an RFID printer-encoder?

image_print

Companies tagging goods to meet retailer mandates or improve internal processes need an RFID printer-encoder to create smart labels to affix to pallets, cases and possibly items. Smart labels, typically sold in rolls, are adhesive labels embedded with RFID tags, or transponders. The encoder electronically writes information—typically a unique ID, or Electronic Product Code (EPC)—to the RFID inlay, and the printer marks the label with a bar code and human-readable text (members, see The Smart Way to Print Smart Labels).
