rfid.reader_1.power.write

Use this command to set the RFID write power levels if the desired levels are not achieved through RFID tag calibration. If not enough power is applied, the tag may not have sufficient power for programming, and tag data will fail to encode. If too much power is applied, the extra power may cause data communication errors or may cause the wrong tag to be programmed.
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.
This parameter is ignored on the R110Xi HF printer because read and write powers cannot be specified separately. See to set the power level for the R110Xi HF printer.

Setvar

Instructs the printer to set the antenna’s write power level.

Getvar

To return the antenna’s write power level:
! U1 getvar "rfid.reader_1.power.write"
Example
This
setvar
example sets the antenna to power setting 16 for writing RFID tags.
! U1 setvar "rfid.reader_1.power.write" "16"
When the
setvar
value is set to
"16"
, the
getvar
result is
"16"
.
