ZD621R to encode RFID labels that have 1020110A Alien Higgs EPC 9840 inlay Follow

0

Trying to learn how to encode labels so I grabbed a printer that can encode, and grabbed a roll of the only RFID stock that we have. It is a printronix roll of labels, SMART RFID 4x6. I loaded the labels with ribbon, then on the printer I launched the RFID calibration wizard which completed successfully. I think that it uses encoder type ISO 18000-6C for these labels so my Bartender design is setup to use that, data type hexidecimal. Every label gets voided though, and forgive me for being so green to this but I try to learn fast. Any tips? I did try going to RFID object properties > Encoder Options > and setting tag type to each option available and testing but all were voided. I left all other settings as default. 

 

Printer is on latest firmware, and Bartender 2021 Enterprise is used today with the latest bartender printer driver, Windows 11. Connected via USB. My label is blank other than the encoder object for the inlay. Just trying to figure out what I can without paying a project manager at Bartender. This is an educational routine, everything is flexible except the printer model and labels so willing to try any variation of settings or testing with someone else's label file.

I fiddled with the settings in Bartender a little further. I found that I needed to set Encoder type to EPC Class 1, Location: User Data, tag type: EPC Gen 2 96bit, and used predefined stock: Printronix 178933-003, measured the location and dimensions of the antenna inlay on the label and updated the RFID Antenna settings on Page Setup. On the printer, I did a RFID test on the label and it passed so I went ahead and tested with these Bartender settings - worked! I discovered the specs on the labels under Label Part Number L-RFID-4-6-ALN9840-800-3-P
