It’s a sleek, new tabletop printer and encoder. And its maker calls it an industrial, multi-protocol RFID solution that excels in on-demand smart-label printing and RFID tag encoding.
Enter Zebra Technologies’ new R110Xi high frequency printer, built on the Vernon Hills, Ill.-based company’s XiIIIPlus Platform.
“The R110Xi HF capitalizes on key areas where the high frequency technology outshines UHF, such as greater data storage and available memory, flexibility to read in proximity to materials such as liquid and metals and faster encoding and printing of labels,” explains Phil Gerskovich, senior vice president of development for Zebra. “These benefits are critical to the pharmaceutical and life sciences industry for high volume, patient wristband printing and item-level tracking of prescription medication.”
