Checkpoint Systems Unveils New RFID Labels for Health, Beauty and Cosmetics

Checkpoint Systems has announced its new Slim and Whisper RFID labels for the health, beauty and cosmetics categories, all of which have specific inventory-management challenges based on their small size, stock-keeping unit (SKU) complexity and densely packed merchandising displays.

Both tags are RFID field-programmable Electronic Product Code (EPC) data carriers designed for strategic placement on packages, the company reports, and can be encoded and printed to carry EPC data in several formats, along with printed bar-code and human-readable text.

The Slim tag is offered with a label size of 88 millimeters by 7 millimeters (3.5 inches by 0.3 inch) and is integrated with Impinj's Monza R6 chip. The label has been optimized for performance with all of Checkpoint's RAIN ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID technology (complying with the EPC Gen 2 and ISO 18000-63 standards), including the company's RFID EAS Overhead Solution, the EVOLVE E10 Exclusive pedestal and other Merchandise Visibility solutions. Slim tags can be applied over the packaging of numerous health, beauty and cosmetics products, and are tamper-proof. The Whisper is offered with a label size of only 12 millimeters by 12 millimeters (0.5 inch by 0.5 inch), and is also integrated with the Monza R6 chip. It comes with removable adhesive, so that no marks are left on cosmetics products.

The Slim and Whisper RFID labels are available immediately, and are being showcased in booth 500 at the RFID Journal LIVE! conference and exhibition, being held this week in San Diego, Calif.
