Did you know Toshiba Tec has RFID Printers

As part of TOSHIBA TEC's continuing commitment to new technology available soon will be the ability to encode RFID chips using the B-SX series, B-EX series and B-SA4TM printers.

To be able to meet the various standards and frequencies Toshiba TEC is offering the unique ability to use different readers and antenna on the same model. Initially two modules will be available but other read / writers can be integrated easily.

Features for RFID

  • Head Up function (available on the B-EX4T1 if the ribbon save module is fitted)
    Reducing damage to the chips during printing

    Using Toshiba TEC's Ribbon save technology the print head can be raised to allow it to skip the RFID chip contained in the label. This unique function removes the possibility of impact or pressure damage to both the head and the chip. The end result of which is the continued long life of the printhead and fewer chip failures after printing.

  • Basic command interpreter

    This is Toshiba TEC's powerful user programmable interface. Using this it is possible to use other RFID R/W modules with the B-SX series printer to extend the frequencies and chips available. It also allows the possibility to uniquely tailor the programming of the chips to your exact requirements.

  • Compliance with TEC Printer Command Language (TPCL)

    The RFID function have been added to the existing TPCL control language making it easy for programmers on legacy systems to add this function to existing systems.

  • Windows driver

    The Printer driver will also support the RFID function allowing chips to be encoded from most Windows applications.
