In-Process Encoding: Ten Key Differentiators

1) Direct Inlay Encoding: The PAD3500 can directly encode thin clear RFID inlays without the need for paper facestock (an additional expense that is required for competing printer/encoders). This saves you money. You avoid the 'tag converting' cost of having paper facestock applied to bare inlays which are afterall, the functional part of an RFID tag.

2) Easy Setup and Installation: You can start encoding RFID tags within 10 minutes from the time that you receive a shipment of ADASA RFID encoders. The setup steps are extremely simple and do not require technical expertise.

3) Internal Control: ADASA RFID tag encoders do not require any external computer to operate. Everything that is needed to assure 100% unique EPC SGTIN tags is already built into the unit. This saves you time, money, and the need for support services.

4) Fast Encoding: ADASA tag encoders are fast, challenging operators to keep up with the pace, running at up to 30 tags per minute. Your workers can tag over 10,000 items during a typical 8-hour work shift. ADASA encoders are at least 3 times faster than desk top printers.

5) Variable Web Width: ADASA encoders can support a wide range of web widths from 1.0" to 6.0". This means that your investment will easily adapt to changes in RFID tag technical requirements. 

6) Leading Tag Types: ADASA PAD3500 models are capable of encoding a wide range of tags and inlays from leading RFID suppliers including: Avery Dennison. UPM Raflatac, Alien Technology, Sirit, Invengo, Metalcraft, and OmniID. 

7) Tag Pitch: The tag pitch ranges from 0.612" (15.55 mm) to 6". Unlike competing desk top printer products, the ADASA encoder does not need to jog tags back and forth to encode and dispense tags. This saves significant amounts of time and money.

8) No Adjustments Needed: Switching between tag sizes and types is easy, just snap on the new cartridge and begin tagging with no user adjustments to the encoder.

9) Standoff: For tags that need a foam standoff (i.e. FAT tags) there is no problem accommodating the extra tag thickness through the encoder. Unlike desk top printers, ADASA encoders can easily encode and dispense tags that are 0.125" thick, more than enough to enable high-efficiency encoding of tags that work on metals and liquids.

10) GS1-compliant Serialization: GS1 Serialization Guidelines use a minimum number of most significant bits in the 38-bit serial number field to pre-allocate blocks of numbers to encoders and encoding facilities. This is all covered by ADASA's U.S. Patent 8,228,198 which is now available for licensing separate from ADASA encoding products.
