Avery Dennison Intros New RAIN RFID Inlay for Apparel Industry

Avery Dennison has introduced a new inlay supporting the ISO-18000-6C and EPC Gen 2 (RAIN) specifications ideal for denim and other apparel items.

According to Avery Dennison, the new inlay meets or exceeds all category performance requirements specified by Auburn University's ARC testing program. The AD-237 features an antenna that measures 2.756 inches by 0.571 inch (70 millimeters by 14.5 millimeters), which Avery Dennison calls a perfect fit for a 3-inch by 0.8-inch label, and a common size adopted by many leading retailers worldwide. The new inlay replaces the AD-233m5, the company's long-standing staple for this category, according to Avery Dennison.

The AD-237inlay
The AD-237 performs well in both the FCC and ETSI frequency bands on materials such as corrugate, plastic, wood and denim, Avery Dennison reports, and is an option for applications including, but not limited to, supply chain management and home essentials.

The inlay is available in two versions: the AD-237r6, made with Impinj's Monza R6 chip and offering 96 bits of Electronic Product Code (EPC) memory, and the AD-237r6-p, made with the Monza R6-P chip and offering up to 128 bits of EPC memory and up to 64 bits of user memory.

The AD-237 inlay is available for purchase in three formats: as a dry inlay, as a wet (adhesive) inlay or as a pressure-sensitive paper label.
