RFID Printers & Encoders

Flexible for Your Configuration

The Kennedy Group offers a wide range of world-class UHF - RFID printers and solutions that provide maximum versatility and flexibility, while supporting multi-protocol reader technology. Our RFID printers / encoders support a wide range of smart label sizes and antenna configurations, giving you ample choices for implementing RFID installation and applications in your day-to-day operations.

The RFID label printer/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.

By implementing these tools, you will see instant, measurable improvements in operating efficiency, accuracy, and supply chain visibility. You can digitally encode error-free data in an RFID tag or smart label, and then wirelessly transmit that data to an RFID reader--even in harsh environments.


Zebra Printers/Encoders – Innovative Printers to Serve all of your Needs

With Zebra's RFID printers/encoders —optimized for high-volume operations—you can print and encode a variety of UHF radio frequency identification smart labels for a multitude of applications.  Zebra's solutions are designed with innovative, industry-leading features to meet the demands of current and future applications, and leverages the built-to-last Xi4™ printer platform for robust performance.

Their high-performance printers/encoders deliver superior flexibility and offer unique benefits. For example, they can fulfill a wide range of applications—from small, high-resolution (600-dpi) health-care specimen smart labeling and item-level tagging, to RFID pallet/carton labeling with print widths up to 4"/103 mm. Auto-configuration, which enables encoding of a variety of different RFID tags, simplifies setup. And by encoding RFID inlays that are spaced closer together than other solutions (.6”/16 mm), Zebra printers/encoders enable lower cost per label, fewer media-roll changes, and faster throughput. You can even use media converted for other printers/encoders, as Zebra's printers/encoders detect variable inlay placement. If you don’t need printed labels, the direct-to-inlay encoding capability means even more media savings.
