RFID Lock feature fails when using ZebraDesigner Pro V2 and Link OS Printers

Article ID: 09765327





Topic or Information

RFID Tag Locking does not  function when using ZebraDesigner with a Link OS printer 

Applies To

ZebraDesigner Pro 2

Link OS compatible RFID Printers


Link OS compatible printers use the ZPL Command ^RL for tag locking and do not support the ^RZ command used in earlier model printers. The latest version of ZD Pro V2 supports the ^RL command for Link OS printers. If you are experiencing locking issues make sure your version of ZD Pro V2 is current.

Command details are in the RFID Programming Guide for Link OS compatible printers. Read More>>

Note: The current version of ZebraDesigner does not support locking the Monza 6 chip/tag. (Latest version as of March 2017 - ZebraDesigner v2.5.0.9393)
