Amer Sports Selects Zebra Technologies to Implement its RFID Compliance Labeling Project Zebra Technologies announced that Amer Sports selected its EPC Gen 2-standard labelling system for its RFID compliance labeling project for shipments of its Wilson Sporting Goods brand. Zebra?s best-of-breed RFID printer/encoders help manufacturers and distributors comply with UHF Gen 2 mandates while providing superior track and trace capabilities for total asset visibility throughout the supply chain. Wilson's team of experts installed four Zebra R110Xi printer/encoders to label shipments that require RFID compliance tagging, which is suited for use in harsh shipping environments. According to Steve Park, Zebra vice president and general manager for RFID, ?Additionally, organizations looking for high-volume labelling will benefit from some of its unique features such as flexible inlay placement, automatic calibration, multiple power levels and easier RFID programming.? The XML-enabled Zebra R110Xi allows for seamless integration into existing enterprise systems. At Wilson, the R110Xi printer/encoders interface directly with applications running on an SAP Auto ID Infrastructure (AII) via an IBM AS/400 host to receive the order information necessary to produce the shipping labels.
