Radio-frequency identification

What is RFID?

Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is an automatic identification method, relying on storing and remotely retrieving data using devices called RFID tags or transponders.

An RFID tag is an object that can be stuck on or incorporated into a product for the purpose of identification using radiowaves. Some tags can be read from several meters away and beyond the line of sight of the reader.


The need to conform to RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) standards and the growing use of RFID in general, requires software to correctly program and print smart labels. EASYLABEL® has the tools to meet and surpass these requirements. EASYLABEL’s improved RFID Wizard makes creating EPC (Electronic Product Code) and DoD (Department of Defense) smart labels child’s play. The RFID Wizard will prompt you for the necessary information and EASYLABEL will do the rest. RFID projects that do not require the EPC or DoD RFID code can use EASYLABEL to directly program HF (High Frequency) or UHF (Ultra High Frequency) smart labels in a hexadecimal or ASCII format.

With EASYLABEL, you have the option to import parts or all of your RFID data from sources such as: databases, serial files, user input, existing bar code or text fields, and external text files. You may also choose to read the RFID data encoded in the RFID tags and print it on your smart labels as a text or bar code field. This feature can be used to comply with industry standards or as a human readable backup of the RFID data.

An additional EASYLABEL RFID feature is the ability to write and print a report that includes the data used to program your printed smart labels. This report can then be used as part of an ASN (Advanced Shipping Notice), to keep a record of labeled items, or other company needs.

Combining all of these RFID capabilities with EASYLABEL’s other time-tested features, will allow you to easily design, report, program, and print smart labels.
