RP4T Passive RFID Printers Features

World’s First Mobile RFID Printer—and Ideal for Long-Lasting Thermal

Transfer Labels

Enhance your processes with mobile printers that enable you to print and encode long-lasting barcode labels and UHF smart labels - wherever and whenever. Designed for a number of industries, this durable mobile RFID encoder and printer stands up to the most demanding environments.

Zebra’s P4T/RP4T is the first-ever mobile thermal transfer printer with RFID printing/encoding capability.

The easy-to-carry P4T/RP4T printer enables you to print long-life barcode labels and documents up to 4” wide where and when you need them—resulting in enhanced data and asset-tracking accuracy and improved workforce efficiency.  Uniquely flexible, the P4T/RP4T offers the advantages of thermal transfer image durability (barcodes/text/graphics), optional RFID, advanced wireless connectivity options and included direct thermal mode in a versatile variety of combinations.

Thermal Transfer Longevity

When paired with tested genuine Zebra thermal transfer supplies, the P4T/RP4T printer produces 2- to 4-inch-wide labels or other documents that withstand harsh environments and offer archival longevity ranging from 18 months to up to 10 years in outdoor applications.

UHF RFID Capability

With its RFID option, the P4T/RP4T printer is perfect if you need pointof-application UHF EPC Gen 2 smart labeling for compliance or business improvement applications today—

or if you think you might need it in the future.
