Avery Dennison Intros New RFID Inlay for Supply Chain Management

Avery Dennison has announced the expansion of its AD-68x family of ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) Gen 2 RFID inlays to include a 50-millimeter by 50-millimeter (2-inch by 2-inch) antenna design providing higher performance and additional memory capacity. According to the company, the solution is designed specifically for fast-paced, high-volume, supply chain management applications.

The AD-681 features dual-antenna technology that enables orientation insensitivity and performance at both the item and pallet levels. The inlay is recommended for a range of applications, such as supply chain management and asset tracking, and is available with Impinj Monza 4D or Monza 4QT endpoint ICs. The ICs enable read distances of up to 15 feet.

The AD-681 is available for purchase in two formats. These include 1-UP Dry Inlay and the 1-UP Wet Inlay, which each measure 2.8 inches by 2.8 inches (53 millimeters by 53 millimeters).

Equipped with 128 bits of Electronic Product Code (EPC) memory and 32 bits of user memory, the Monza 4D chip provides a moderate level of memory to support standard supply chain management applications. For applications that require greater memory and privacy safeguards, the Monza 4QT IC includes 512 bits of memory and allows tag owners to use a private data profile to store confidential data. The global design, according to the company, performs well on such materials as corrugate, plastic, wood and glass.
