Why Use Impinj ItemEncode

Fast Tag Fulfillment
Enables a machine to encode up to 9,500 RAIN RFID tags per minute

Fail-Safe Encoding
Allows encoder to verify data encoding and triggers actions on tags with encoding issues

Reduced Operation Cost
Requires less labor, power and floor space than machines using alternative encoding solutions

Key Features


An ItemEncode system can encode up to 9,500 tags/minute

Configurable Encoding

Supports multiple serialization and data encoding schemes

Tag Flexibility

Encode Impinj Monza and non-Monza tags


ItemEncode Pipelined System

Machines that utilize Impinj ItemEncode software optimize tag encoding yield by using a pipelined configuration of encoders which share operational information and intelligently recover encoding failures—without slowing down encoding speed. ItemEncode will track individual tags by their TID as they move through the pipeline, allowing all encoders to remain in sync with the encoding configuration for that particular tag.
