  • 1. P4T and RP4T Mobile Printer An introduction to the Thermal Transfer and RFID mobile Stefano Giannerini KFI Trading Srl

2. The Zebra P4T/RP4T 3. Introducing the P4T/RP4T

  • P4T thermal-transfer mobile printer
  • RP4T thermal-transfer mobile printer with RFID encoder

The P4T/RP4T is a thermal-transfer mobile printer with UHF RFID printing/encoding capability.A world first! It re-introduces a thermal transfer mobile printer to the portfolio, and reinforces Zebras position as a technology leader/pioneer. It is the first of ZebrasIntelligent Mobile Printerswith smart end user features. There are two primary models: Note: The P4T has an RFID upgrade path should a customer have a future need for RFID encoding. The RP4T ships with an RFID encoder pre-installed. 4. Introducing the P4T/RP4T

  • Niche applications that require thermal-transfer printing in a mobile platform.
  • This need was previously fulfilled by the PT400, which was discontinued in 2005 due to supplier RoHS issues.
  • We foresee significant opportunities for thermal-transfermobile printing in niche applications.
  • The nature of these applications has synergy with RFID either now or in the near future.

Why did we develop the P4T and RP4T? 5. Introducing the P4T/RP4T

  • Thermal-transfer printing allows for the production of long lasting and highly durable printed output for use in extreme weather conditions and temperatures.
  • Mobile RFID removes the fixed constraints of RFID technology, allowing for the technology to be used in outdoor environments where tagging is still required.
