Tharo Systems, Inc. provides an easy solution for printing barcode and RFID labels using XML (Extensible Markup Language) enabled enterprise systems. EasyLabel 5 Platinum's XML Monitor will 'watch' a file directory or TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol) port and will automatically print your RFID or bar code labels when a compatible XML file is received. This feature provides a direct connection to any application capable of generating a properly formatted XML file. It will make printing your RFID or bar code labels from your supply chain or manufacturing software seamless.
The XML Generator enables you to generate XML from a given format file(s). The Generator prompts for the format(s), the number of labels to print, which printer to use, and the variable data used to populate the fields on the format. The XML file that results from the Generator can be used as a template that can be uploaded to and populated from within an XML enabled application. The .Net framework and Windows 2000 or Windows XP is required to use the XML Generator.
This solution is made possible through the use of EASYLABEL's XML Generator and XML Monitor and does not require special XML enabled printers. You will be able to design label formats using EasyLabel's label design tools and then populate and print them by sending XML files to a monitored folder or TCP/IP port.
