TOSHIBA TEC announces new RFID READY B-SX range of thermal printers

TOSHIBA TEC is pleased to announce that the B-SX range of thermal printers have just got smarter. With a reputation as one of the most powerful, flexible and robust industrial printers available today, the addition of the RFID capability ensures the B-SX range continues to provide functionality and performance with the latest future-proofed technology.

For flexibility and choice, the B-SX range does not have pre-fitted RFID read/write units, therefore the printers can be fitted with modules from some of the best known names in the RFID field. Simply fitting an antenna and plugging the module into the CPU will allow the printer to read, write and verify a variety of RFID smart labels.

The ribbon save module, of the B-SX series, (where fitted) in combination with TOSHIBA TECs floating head technology, can be used to lift the print head over the chip in the label, thus reducing the risk of impact damage to the programmed chip.

For the user the B-SX range of printers simplifies RFID by treating the addition of encoding as just another barcode. By selecting the RFID barcode in the windows driver or sending the command to the printer as part of a format, the printer will encode the data based on the module fitted and the chip detected.

Frequencies available are 915 Mhz (USA) and 869.5 (EU) in the UHF range and 13.56 in the HF range.
