Paxar, a global leader providing bar code and identification technologies for the retail supply chain and the supplier of Monarch products and services, today announced that it has recently been qualified by Alien Technology as a supplier of high quality RFID smart labels containing Alien Class 1 transponders.
Users of RFID technology can order smart labels directly from Paxar, with pre-qualification from Alien that the labels will be of high quality and performance. Paxar had previously been designated as an Alien printer/encoder partner, making it the first company to receive Alien's qualification in both printer/encoders and smart labels.
"The qualification of Paxar's smart labels, coupled with our previously announced partnership for printer/encoders, means that users of Alien's Class 1 RFID technology can go to one qualified source for their RFID printing/encoding solution," said Rick Bauer, Senior Director, RFID Technical Research. "Users will benefit from the fact that they have one company to look to; one company to make sure the entire solution works in their environment."
"Alien is extremely pleased to add Paxar's RFID labels to our previous qualification of printer/encoders," said David Bledsoe, Alien Technology Director of OEM and Consumables. "Customers can have confidence that RFID products qualified under Alien's partner program will perform at the highest levels of reliability. Paxar has shown outstanding commitment to delivering the highest quality in printer/encoders and smart labels, which will provide substantial benefit to users of Alien's transponders."
