FREMONT, CA: Avery Dennison has launched its dual-technology AD-362r6-P inlay that syndicates item-level tracking and digital ID capabilities of a high-performance RAIN RFID (UHF) tag. The solution is suitable for a broad range of retail apparel products and applications with an EAS tag's secondary loss prevention functionality.
The AD-362r6-P inlays available in Avery Dennison are an exceptional dual-technology design, which can integrate a UHF RFID inlay and an Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) tag in a single die-cut label. The AD-362r6-P inlays are prepared with the Impinj Monza R6-P IC that offers interchangeable 96/128-bit EPC and 64/32-bit User Memory. TID memory is 96 bits with a 48-bit unique serial number.
A practical solution for a broad EAS user base
Electronic article surveillance does not stand for only one defined technology, but rather for a concept. The concept might consist of Electro-Magnetic (EM), Acousto-Magnetic (AM), and Radio Frequency (RF), which is based on EAS systems with precise benefits. The RF-based variation is technologically connected with the RFID and the most popular anti-theft solution utilized in retail, particularly in apparel stores. However, because of its low installation costs per tag, several stores have RF EAS gate readers installed but cannot work as RAIN RFID readers.
Allowing retailers to stay ahead of trends
The primary RAIN RFID related feature of the new AD-362r6-P inlays helps the retailers to gain advantage from the enhanced inventory accuracy, improved brand security, and the capability to develop a more satisfying shopping experience that prioritizes on maximizing convenience and utility. The dual-technology inlay subsidizes to frictionless shopping because it allows (self-) checkout solutions that do not interfere with EAS-based anti-theft systems:
However, when a RAIN RFID reader scans the inlay during the checkout process, the EAS functionality can be deactivated automatically, eliminating the requirement for a manual detachment of the otherwise necessary EAS tag.
Listening to customers
"Our new dual-technology AD-362r6-P inlay is proof to our ability to listen and quickly respond to our retail customers who need to leverage RFID capabilities with their RF EAS infrastructure including gate readers installed at store exits to mitigate theft", said Hal Hikita, Head of Product, Line Management, Avery Dennison Intelligent Labels.
