Introduced las year, RX500e is a full-color, on-demand RFID built-in label and tag printer. Labels are printed, encoded and verified in a single pass. Finished labels are then cut with the internal guillotine-style cutter and dispensed one at a time. The built-in UHF RFID reader/encoder module is supplied by Honeywell. It is compliant with EPC Global Gen 2 Class 1 and ISO 18000-6B and -6C specifications.
Print resolution is up to 4800dpi ,with print speeds of up to 2.5 inches per second. All customers receive the design software BarTender UltraLite and NiceLabel Free (both for Windows), free of charge. Both are used to design the labels, however with RX500e the RFID encoding capability is important, which is available in upgraded versions of the software.
RX500e is now available through authorized DTM Print resellers and distributors in the EMEA region. For all units within the EU (including EFTA countries), DTM Print offers up to 24 months warranty: 12 months provided with the purchase and the option of extra 12 months for free after registering the product on the company website within the first six months of purchase.
Andreas Hoffmann, managing director at DTM Print, commented: ‘Printing full-color RFID labels and tags adds a new, value-added feature to the technology.
‘With RX500e, you can add color coding, graphics and high-resolution photos to RFID labels and tags. With color, you are essentially adding an extra layer of accuracy and safety in applications such as medical file folder labels, visitor badges, photo wristbands and specimen tracking labels.’
