The Hardware Interoperability testing evaluated the interoperability of SATOs Class 1 RFID Printer/Encoder, the CL408e industrial printer, and M8485Se leading print engine, configurations with those provided by other manufacturers. In addition to passing the mandatory EPC Global Interoperability test cases, SATO RFID products also successfully completed the optional test case scenarios.
