Printronix SmartLine SL5000r RFID Smart Label Printers
Printronix SL5000r thermal bar code printer has been replaced by the Printronix SL5000r Energy Star Printer Based on the 5r Multi-Technology Platform and patented MP2™ RFID Smart encoding technology, the SL5000r™ ENERGY STAR MP2 delivers true Gen 2 encoding designed to EPCglobal Gen 2 specifications.
The Printronix SL5000r is the next generation family of RFID printers. These printers feature Printronix 5r leadership-by-design and RFID Smart encoding technology to address a wide range of applications and global frequency requirements.
Printronix SmartLine SL5000r Features and Benefits
The SL5000r family of RFID printers offer multi-protocol capabilities that support EPCglobal Class 0, 0+, 1, Gen 2* and Philips 1.19 standards and global frequency requirements.
The widest range of thermal printer emulations allows for easy consolidation of multiple thermal printer brands reducing maintenance costs and configuration time.
PowerPC controller and new high-performance 5r driver deliver industry-leading throughput for more efficient applications.
BUILT FOR CHANGE
The SL5000r RFID printers are compatible with EPCglobal Class 1 Gen 2* smart labels via a free firmware update.
All SL5000r printers feature intelligent RFID tag management that identifies and overstrikes substandard RFID smart labels preventing them from entering your supply chain.
- Integrated RFID UHF encoder meets global frequency standards
- Smart Label encoding, validation and overstrike capability
- Intelligent media detection saves expensive RFID smart labels by flashing a warning when RFID media is present but no RFID command is in the data stream
- PGL, ZPL and SATO RFID programming language support
- Unique dual motor ribbon system eliminates clutch replacement and ribbon wrinkle
- Snap-in print head allows operator to easily replace print heads and change from 203 dpi to 300 dpi printing without firmware or software changes
- Wireless/Ethernet option provides real-time data access and local printing flexibility
- Online Data Validation option offers a complete bar code/RFID compliant solution
- Printronix PrintNet Enterprise option provides instantaneous visibility to every network printer and allows simultaneous configuration and management of an unlimited number of Printronix printers
- GGreater ribbon capacity eliminates frequent attention and disruption to workflow
Printronix SmartLine SL5000r Asset Protection
The Printronix SL5000r smart label printers provide RFID solutions compliant to todays standards and compatible for growth to expand to tomorrows needs. Built on the 5r Multi-Technology Platform, the SL5000r offers a foundation for protocol upgradeability such as expansion to EPCglobal capabilities via firmware upgrades, including future upgrades to allow EPCglobal 1 Gen 2 compatibility.
