RFID Test
During the RFID test, the printer attempts to read and write to a transponder. No printer movement occurs with this test.
To test an RFID label:
  1. Position the RFID label with its transponder over the RFID antenna array.
  2. Touch
    Start
    .
The results of the test appear on the display.

RFID Calibrate
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, and the read/write power level to use. (See RFID Programming Guide 3 for more information.)
Before running this command, load the printer with RFID media, calibrate your printer, close the printhead, and feed at least one label to make sure that tag calibration will begin from 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 allow for backfeed during the tag calibration procedure.

RFID Program Position
If the desired programming position (read/write position) is not achieved through RFID tag calibration, a value may be specified.
Accepted values:
F0 to Fxxx (where xxx is the label length in millimeters or 999, whichever is less)—The printer feeds the label forward for the specified distance and then begins programming.
B0 to B30—The printer backfeeds the label for the specified distance and then begins programming. To account for the backfeed, allow empty media liner to extend out of the front of the printer when using a backward programming position.

Read RFID Data
Read and return the specified tag data from the RFID tag located over the RFID antenna. No printer movement occurs while tag data is being read. The printhead can be open or closed.
To read and display the information stored on an RFID tag:
  1. Position the RFID label with its transponder over the RFID antenna.
  2. Touch
