Change a Tagging Station Profile

 

This function allows you to change attributes of a Tagging Station profile.

 

Tagging Station ID

The Station ID assigned by the end user

 

Description

The description of the Station assigned by the end user

 

Label Format

The name of the file that contains the Case label printer commands to be sent to the Print Applicator engine. Note: this can be generated by an existing RFID label software such as Bartender and the reworked with variables for the Tagging Station. Note2: the GTIN being tagged is merged into the label format along with its description and other attributes. Note3: ZPL (Zebra Printer Language) is displayed, but other printer languages can be supported

 

Tagging Station IP Address

The IP address and port of the Print engine on the applicator

 

Bar Code Reader IP Address

The IP address and port of the Barcode scanner on the conveyor

Timeout (msec)

The duration of time that the Tagging Station application will wait to acquire the all the required devices. Note: if the print engine does not receive any input for its timeout value, it will timeout as well

 

Location ID

A dropdown list of all configured logical Reader locations as defined in Event Subscriptions. This is the case/verify station that gets launched when the Tagging Station is started. Note: ensure that the Schedule has been assigned a status of ‘Manual’ so that the Event monitor does not try to start and stop it during tagging station operation.

 

Status

The status of the Tagging Station definition, either ACTIVE or INACTIVE

Current Pallet Information

Current Pallet Information: – information about the current tagging station status with respect to a running job. Status fields below:

GTIN: the current GTIN being tagged on the conveyor

Pallet ID: the EPC generated, is assigned to all cases on that pallet

Pallet Size: the standard number of case/cartons for that GTIN

Pallet Count: the current number of cases that have been tagged.

EPC Element

A Dropdown list of numbering schemes to convert; SGTIN 96-bit, SSCC 96-bit, or SGLN 96-bit. Note: currently only SGTIN is supported

 

Filter Value

This is also referred to as the EPC ‘Object Type’ which relates to a packaging type (e.g. Case, Pallet, tote, etc.). Case values are typically ‘2’ according to EPC standards.

 

Partition

A number representing the size of the UCC Company Prefix. Most US company prefixes are 7 digits long which is indicated by a partition value of 5.

 

Generate Pallet Label

Dictates whether a pallet tag will be printed on the first occurrence of a case being read (from a new pallet).  Note: the tagging station logic automatically accounts for cases that are kicked out due to a bad read in the tag verify station, thus decrementing the pallet count.

 

Pallet Label Format

The name of the file that contains the Pallet label print commands to be sent to the Print Applicator engine. Note: this can be generated by an existing RFID label software such as Bartender and the reworked with variables for the Tagging Station. Note: ZPL (Zebra Printer Language) is displayed, but other printer languages can be supported.

 

Printer IP Address

The IP address and port of the RFID Pallet Printer (typically a desktop)

 

Printer Filter Value

This is also referred to as the EPC ‘Object Type’ which relates to a packaging type (e.g. Case, Pallet, tote, etc.). Pallet values are typically ‘0’ according to EPC standards.

 

Enable Emulation

Allows user to run simulation of cases being read on a conveyor (without the actual conveyor).  Note: the file to maintain this simulation of reads is stored in the Label Format folder specified in the System Settings option.
