RFID PRINTING TECHNOLOGY
The SL4M™ is the price-performance leader of the Printronix
SmartLine™ series of RFID printers for industrial and commercial
applications. This cost-effective UHF RFID smart label printer
encoder is perfect for businesses seeking the most economical
solution for developing an RFID enabled supply chain. Based on
the Printronix reputation for reliability, durability, and dependability, the SL4M uses the
same MP2™ encoding technology and PSA3™ advanced electronic architecture found in
the high performance SL5000r™ printer including remote printer management and control,
five different Printer Protocol Interpreters for seamless installation into other printer brand
environments. The user friendly graphical interface offers a unique icon menu driven
navigation system for easy configuration and installation. It builds upon the Printronix
leadership and established RFID ecosystem to support manufacturers,
retailers and government agencies seeking to improve their supply
chain management with RFID technology.
A favorite among major retailers and consumer packaged goods companies,
the SL4M’s patented MP2 technology consistently provides encoding rates
that exceed UHF RFID industry expectations. The EPCglobal Gen 2
Certified Hardware encoder insures that it works in a predictable and reliable manner for the
best RFID enterprise solution. The SL4M stands ready for RFID global implementation with
the widest breadth of Class 1 Gen 2 UHF tag support for a midrange printer. The SL4M MP2
encoding technology avoids confusion and eliminates cost, offering consistent tag support
with the entire SmartLine family.
QUICK CHANGE MEMORY CARTRIDGE
Printronix now has an additional way to make your deployment a snap, the quick change
memory cartridge (QCMC). The QCMC stores your printer’s configuration, network settings
and fonts. This memory cartridge allows you to easily install new printers and if a printer
ever fails, allow easy change out by your operators. The T4M becomes the mid-range printer
of choice for mission critical applications.
