rfid.reader_1.power.read

This command sets the RFID reader power level for reading RFID tags.
NOTE: Printers automatically select the best antenna element and read/write power levels for the media during RFID transponder calibration. The ZT400 and ZT600 series printers also may set the levels during an adaptive antenna sweep. Use ^HL or ~HL to view the antenna element and power settings being used.
