Zebra RZ Series RFID Label Printer-Encoder

The RZ400™ and RZ600™ label printer-encoders bring UHF RFID capabilities to Zebra's popular Z Series® platform and set the new standard as the price-performance leaders in RFID smart labeling.

Newly enhanced, they can print-encode small labels for today's closed-loop item-level tracking applications, as well as help meet global RFID tagging compliance initiatives.

These label printer-encoders are economically priced but built to last with all-metal frames and adjustable sensors. The RZ Series can print and encode labels at 203-, 300-, or 600-dpi at up to 10" per second.

Zebra RZ600 RFID label printer-encoder


Zebra RZ Series Printer-Encoder from Weber

These metal printer-encoders offer EPC UHF Gen 2, Class 1 support; high-speed print throughput; and rugged reliability to enhance productivity in tough environments.
Zebra RZ400 insideBetter Connected for a Connected World

The RZ series RFID printer-encoders connect easily with most warehouse/manufacturing and business applications.

The RZ400 and RZ600 are better connected to your network—through USB 2.0, 802.11b/g secure wireless, or Ethernet. They're better connected to your applications—with multiple RFID power settings to adjust to current and future RFID protocols, transponder designs and sizes; choice of print resolution including 300 dpi; and XML-Enabled printing as a standard feature. And they're better connected to your needs—with easy setup via a large, easy-to-read front panel that includes Asian-language support; easy loading of supplies; and easy maintenance with quick-changing printheads and platens.


The industrial/commercial RZ400 (for smart labels up to 4 inches) and the RZ600 (for up to 6-inch smart labels) have been designed for item-, case- and pallet-level identification. Streamline business-improvement and supply-chain management applications such as:

  • Item-level tracking for package verification, work in process, product authentication, document tracking and more
  • Asset Tracking
  • Inventory Management
  • Shipping/Receiving
  • Distribution
