SATO has added the GL4e series of RFID-ready industrial printers to products that support Microsoft BizTalk RFID, and reports that this product can enable more supply chain operators to meet RFID mandate requirements.
The GL4e series are SATO's industrial-grade, fully network-manageable printers with a field-upgradeable, ultra-high frequency (UHF) RFID option.
The printers are well suited for global EPC Class 1 Gen 2 applications. Synchronized with Microsoft's BizTalk RFID technology, the GL4e encodes and prints RFID tags and labels to meet global supply chain operators' retail, government-led and other supply chain compliance mandates. The RFID printing solution is also ideal for closed-loop UHF applications, the company reports.
In line with Microsoft's approach to a uniform way to help manage RFID devices on the Microsoft Windows platform, SATO has developed a Device Service Provider Interface (DSPI) that allows plug-and-play connection of the GL4e RFID-ready printer with BizTalk RFID.
