Introduction

Overview of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is an automatic identification method that relies on storing and retrieving data using
RFID tags. The tags, which are incorporated into labels, receive and respond to radio-frequency queries from an RFID
transceiver. This tag support lets you print on labels and simultaneously program embedded RFID tags.

Choosing an output device

Output devices used in printing labels include the 5-bin mailbox, the output expander, the high-capacity output stacker,
adjustable stacker, and the finisher staplesmart. Choose an output device based on the software program, the length of
label needed, and the number of labels that you expect to print at one time. To order an output device, visit the Lexmark
Web site at 

www.lexmark.com

:

Output expander

20G0894

High-capacity output stacker

20G0896

Adjustable stacker

20G1360

Finisher StapleSmart

20G0897

Note: RFID media should not be directed to the T64x StapleSmart Finisher, if it is used as an output device. The standard
output bin should be used for all RFID media, even if recognized as defective. The T64x StapleSmart Finisher may still
be used for any non-RFID media.

Preparing to print

Loading RFID labels

To load labels:

Note: Do not remove a tray when a job is printing or when the operator panel indicator light is blinking. Doing so may
cause a jam.

1

Remove the tray from the printer, and place it on a flat, level surface.

2

Squeeze the side guard tab, and slide the guide to the outer edge of the tray.

3

Flex the label sheets back and forth to loosen them, and then fan them. Do not fold or crease the label sheets.
Straighten the edges on a level surface.

4

Place the label sheets with the print side facing down and the labels positioned at the back of the tray.

5

Squeeze the rear guide tab, and slide the guide to the correct position for the size label sheets you are loading.

6

Insert the tray into the printer.

The increased thickness of RFID labels reduces the input and output bin capacity. Test your software program to ensure
that you understand the reduced input and output bin capabilities. For information on label construction, see the Card
Stock and Label Guide
 on the Lexmark Web site at 

www.lexmark.com/publications

.

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) compliance information statement

This product has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation
is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

The FCC Class B limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a
residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur
in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning
the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

Consult your point of purchase or service representative for additional suggestions.

The manufacturer is not responsible for radio or television interference caused by using other than recommended cables or by unauthorized
changes or modifications to this equipment. Unauthorized changes or modifications could void the user's authority to operate this equipment.

Note: To assure compliance with FCC regulations on electromagnetic interference for a Class B computing device, use a properly shielded and
grounded cable such as Lexmark part number 1021294 for USB attach. Use of a substitute cable not properly shielded and grounded may result
in a violation of FCC regulations.

Any questions regarding this compliance information statement should be directed to:

Director of Lexmark Technology & Services

interférences NMB-003.

Exposure to radio frequency radiation

The radiated output power of this device is far below the FCC radio frequency exposure limits. A minimum separation of 20 cm (8 inches) must
be maintained between the antenna and any persons for this device to satisfy the RF exposure requirements of the FCC.

Laser notice

The printer is certified in the U.S. to conform to the requirements of DHHS 21 CFR Subchapter J for Class I (1) laser products, and elsewhere
is certified as a Class I laser product conforming to the requirements of IEC 60825-1.

Class I laser products are not considered to be hazardous. The printer contains internally a Class IIIb (3b) laser that is nominally a 5 milliwatt
gallium arsenide laser operating in the wavelength of 770-795 nanometers. The laser system and printer are designed so there is never any
human access to laser radiation above a Class I level during normal operation, user maintenance, or prescribed service condition.

Laser advisory label

A laser notice label may be affixed to this printer as shown:

Power consumption

Product power consumption

The following table documents the power consumption characteristics of the product.

Note: Some modes may not apply to your product.

High Off

The product is plugged into a wall outlet, but the power switch is turned off.

Low Off (<1 W Off) The product is plugged into a wall outlet, the power switch is turned off, and the product

is in the lowest possible power consumption mode.

N/A

Off

The product is plugged into a wall outlet, but the power switch is turned off.

0 W

The power consumption levels listed in the previous table represent time-averaged measurements. Instantaneous power draws may be
substantially higher than the average.

Values are subject to change. See 

www.lexmark.com

 for current values.

Power Saver

This product is designed with an energy-saving mode called Power Saver. The Power Saver Mode is equivalent to the EPA Sleep Mode. The
Power Saver Mode saves energy by lowering power consumption during extended periods of inactivity. The Power Saver Mode is automatically
engaged after this product is not used for a specified period of time, called the Power Saver Timeout.

Factory default Power Saver Timeout for this product (in minutes):

30 Minutes

By using the configuration menus, the Power Saver Timeout can be modified between 1 minute and 240 minutes. Setting the Power Saver
Timeout to a low value reduces energy consumption, but may increase the response time of the product. Setting the Power Saver Timeout to
a high value maintains a fast response, but uses more energy.

Off mode

If this product has an off mode which still consumes a small amount of power, then to completely stop product power consumption, disconnect
the power supply cord from the wall outlet.

Total energy usage

It is sometimes helpful to calculate the total product energy usage. Since power consumption claims are provided in power units of Watts, the
power consumption should be multiplied by the time the product spends in each mode in order to calculate energy usage. The total product
energy usage is the sum of each mode's energy usage.
