RFID > RFID Calibrate

Used to initiate tag calibration for RFID media. (This is NOT the same as media and ribbon calibration.)
During the process, the printer moves the media, calibrates the RFID tag position, and determines the optimal settings for the RFID media being used. These settings include:
  • the programming position
  • the antenna element to use
  • the read/write power level to use
For more information, refer to RFID Programming Guide 3 available from zebra.com/manuals.
Before you run this command, load the printer with RFID media, calibrate your printer (see Print > Sensors > Manual Calibration), close the printhead, and press
to advance at least one label to make sure that tag calibration will begin at the correct position.
Leave all transponders before and after the tag that is being calibrated. This allows the printer to determine RFID settings which do not encode the adjacent tag. Allow a portion of media to extend out the front of the printer to make room for backfeed during the tag calibration procedure.
