Tageos Unveils Small Apparel RFID Tag

Tageos has announced the release of the new version of its small EOS-241 RFID tag based on NXP's Ucode 8 IC. Designed for tagging apparel and small items, the new EOS-241 U8 offers excellent performance in a compact form-factor. The inlay is approved by the University of Auburn's RFID Lab in all FCC categories.

The EOS-241 U8 successfully completed product testing in the ARC program at the RFID Lab. The inlay passed all categories related to various use cases for RFID within retail environments in the FCC frequency range (Spec A, B, C, D, M, G, F, Q, and N), demonstrating a high capability to meet retailers' and brand owners' requirements.

With finished dimensions of 1.77 inches by 0.75inch (45 millimeters by 19 millimeters), the EOS-241 U8 inlay represents a perfect solution for tagging a large variety of items, particularly small fashion items with limited available labeling area. The tag is also easily embedded into most other tag sizes and formats (tickets, sew-in labels and so forth).

"We are proud to see our product EOS-241 U8 meets the performance requirements for all ARC categories related to the FCC frequency range," says Matthieu Picon, Tageos's CEO, in a prepared statement. "It is good news for retailers and suppliers of the US market looking for a unique solution to label variety of product types." The EOS-241 U8 is available immediately as a paper sticker or a wet inlay.
