This printer is ideal for RFID applications in the retail, manufacturing and healthcare industries. RFID encoding is useful for tracking products through the supply chain, taking real-time inventory, and locating equipment within the enterprise.


The T800 with optional UHF RFID was designed to meet the growing demand for encoding and printing RFID labels at an affordable price.

Retail, manufacturing and healthcare are just a few of the industries that use RFID to track products throughout the supply chain, take inventory in real-time or locate equipment within the enterprise.

The T800 makes printer setup for encoding and printing of RFID labels fast and easy. Not only can it support labels down to 625-inches in length, but the antenna can be adjusted for non-standard inlay positions. Further, the RFID label calibration function automatically sets the optimal label encoding position within the printer.

Can I swap the printhead on the T800 from 203 dpi to 300 dpi?

The printheads are interchangeable.

Can I upgrade my non-RFID T800 printer with RFID in the field?
It is a factory only option.
Do I need a tool to replace the printhead on the T800?

You need a #1 Philips screwdriver to remove the printhead.

Does Printronix offer consumables for the T800?
Printronix Auto ID has a complete printer supplies offering designed to work optimally with the T800.
How do I calibrate the labels on my T800 printer?

The control panel printer setup wizard provides an easy-to-follow calibration process. The Settings menu allows you to select the Gap/Mark sensor to match the type of media installed. In addition, you can set the printer to do an Auto Calibrate at power up or when the pivoting deck has opened and closed. In all cases the printer will advance a few labels and calibrate the sensors so that they will detect top-of-form.

How do I configure the T800?
For loading media, ribbon, and label calibration, “How-to Videos” are available on the support section of our website, along with manuals. If you are familiar with the T6000 and T8000 you will instantly recognize that the control panel keypad layout and menu structure are the same on the T800.
How easy is it setup the T800 for different RFID labels?

The T800 has an RFID label calibration feature in the RFID menu which makes it very easy to setup the printer for different RFID labels. The calibration process feeds three labels to determine the optimal encoding position and power levels.

How is the T800 positioned within the Printronix Auto ID thermal printer portfolio?
The T800 is a ground-up design and positioned as a high-end desktop thermal printer. With the PSA capability, it complements the Printronix industrial-class products but in a compact, affordable model.
How long will the printhead last on the T800?

For Thermal Transfer applications: printheads are warranted 12 months from shipment or 1 million linear inches (whichever comes first). For Direct Thermal applications: printheads are warranted 180 days from shipment or 1 million linear inches (whichever comes first).

I am currently using a printer from one of your competitors. Can the T800 replace my printer and plug-and-play without additional effort and cost?
The T800 supports emulations for most major competitor printers; Zebra, Datamax, Sato, Toshiba Tec, Intermec, and more. These emulations have been used on multiple Printronix products and proven to be very robust.
