How to locate tags by barcode (EAN) instead of EPC


We are developing an app for a Zebra TC20 device in order to perform inventories (we use a handheld Zebra RFD8500 reader to read RFID tags).

We are interested in locating tags with the RFD8500 using only the barcode of the tags instead of the full EPC.

Example: suppose we have 3 tags:
- Tag 1 -> Barcode: 8433594013132 // EPC: 843359401313200001723799
- Tag 2 -> Barcode: 8433594013132 // EPC: 843359401313200001723158
- Tag 3 -> Barcode: 8433594013300 // EPC: 843359401330000001832435
