A powerful and versatile RFID-ready label printer, which can also be controlled remotely by network managers, is available from SATO UK.
The GL4e is a durable machine for day to day printing of labels up to four inches wide in busy industrial environments and features a range of ‘futureproof’ features.
As an RFID -ready printer, it is field upgradable. So as and when a business requires a RFID print function, additional components may be quickly and easily installed on site. This enables encoding of Class 1 Gen 2 tags . The latest near-field antenna technology encodes the label in precisely the best position to guarantee optimum read performance. The printer also meets UHF frequency standards worldwide.
In another major development, the languages of all six main printer manufacturers are ready built in and can be simply accessed by icons on the front panel – an advanced emulation capability that resolves potential compatibility problems.
For businesses running a network of printers on different sites, or even different parts of the world, the SATO Net Connect software option allows network administrators to control them remotely. Apart from switching the machine on and changing the label reels, all other functions are fully controllable. This includes status review, all settings, label designs and online barcode verification.
Other features of the GL4e are its easy change printhead- no tools are needed – increased label capacity, and the ability to accept any ribbon type. It has a fast print speed – 10inches per second (254mm) – and a choice of 8 or 12 dot print resolution. Three interfaces are fitted as standard.
The system is fully supported by SATO’s nationwide after-sales service. The company also supplies all accessories and consumables, including labels manufactured at its own factory at the company’s UK base in Harwich.
