Zebra RPAX Passive RFID Printers Features

Overview of Zebra RPAX Passive RFID Printers

High-Performance RFID Multi-Protocol Print Engine for Print-and-Apply Solutions 

If your business must comply with radio frequency identification (RFID) mandates, look to Zebra’s R110PAX4 to help you jump-start the process. Zebra’s PAX print engines are performance leaders in mission-critical print-and-apply applications. We’ve coupled the performance of PAX with RFID technology to empower you with a one-stop shop for identifying cases and pallets. The R110PAX4 is the only print engine to embed ThingMagic’s Mercury4e reader/encoder module, which supports multiple protocols. The R110PAX4 is offered in both right-hand and left-hand versions and 203- and 300-dpi models. In addition, RFID processes are optimized for faster throughput, while RFID counters keep track of good and unusable labels. The R110PAX4 embeds ThingMagics’ Mercury4e, which supports both multiple antennas and multiple protocols, including UHF EPC-compliant Class 1, Gen 2; ISO 18000-06B; and Philips UCode 1.19. The reader’s unique software architecture allows for simple firmware upgrades for new protocols—providing solid investment protection for your RFID initiatives. The R110PAX4 also offers sophisticated features such as XML-Enabled printing, auto-calibration, multiple power settings and flexible inlay placement, which are demanded for leading RFID applications today.

The high-performance R110PAX4 RFID print engine for high-speed, automated print-and-apply systems is designed to provide case- and pallet-level identification for companies needing to streamline logistics and supply chain management as well as other applications including:

• Asset tracking

• Inventory management

• Shipping/Receiving

• Distribution

Standard Features
