Tageos Updates EOS-220 RFID Label With Monza R6 Chips

RFID label manufacturer Tageos has announced two new versions its EOS-220 RFID label: one made with Impinj's Monza R6 RFID chip, with 96 bits of Electronic Product Code (EPC) memory; the other made with Impinj's Monza R6-P chip, with up to 128 bits of EPC memory, as well as up to 64 bits of user memory. The EOS-220 is designed to address retailers' small-item tagging needs.

Both versions, according to Tageos, feature a new antenna measuring 45 millimeters by 25 millimeters (1.77 inches by 0.98 inch), specially designed to meet customers' requirements for a small yet high-performance RFID label. The EOS-220 measures 48 millimeters by 28 millimeters (1.9 inches by 1.1 inches) and is delivered as an adhesive label compatible with all standard available RFID thermal transfer printers, so that customers can encode the tags and print variable data and product information.

The EOS-220 is fully paper-based, the company reports, and is manufactured using Tageos' patented inlay-less technology. By omitting the use of plastic-based inlays, Tageos explains, it is able to reduce the price of the finished label compared to inlay-based tags manufactured in a traditional manner. According to the company, its customers can benefit from a low-priced label while also meeting their green initiatives by using a product with a very low carbon footprint.

"Offering a small RFID label with best-in-class performance was our ambition when we started developing the EOS-220, but we wanted to provide to our customers a very cost-effective tag," said Matthieu Picon, Tageos' CEO, in a prepared statement. "Thanks to the high sensitivity of the Monza R6 chip, we came up with a very good product in terms of performance and reduced form-factor. Our EOS-220 is already being used by several clients in the retail industry."

The EOS-220 is available immediately with Monza R6 and R6-P chips. Tageos will exhibit the new labels in its booth (#712) at this year's RFID Journal LIVE! conference and exhibition, to be held in Orlando, Fla., on May 3-5.
