Item level tracking

28 September 2020

Avery Dennison launched its dual-technology AD-362r6-P inlay that combines item-level tracking and digital ID capabilities of a high-performance RAIN RFID (UHF) tag.

This is suitable for a wide range of retail apparel products and applications with the secondary loss prevention functionality of an EAS tag.

AD-362r6-P inlays are equipped with the Impinj Monza R6-P IC that provides interchangeable 96/128 bit EPC and 64/32 bit User Memory. TID memory is 96 bits with a 48-bit unique serial number.

The term ‘electronic article surveillance” does not stand for one clearly defined technology, but rather for a concept: There are, among others, Electro-Magnetic (EM), Acousto-Magnetic (AM), and Radio Frequency (RF) based EAS systems with specific advantages. The RF-based variation is technologically related to RFID, and the most popular anti-theft solution for retail, particularly in apparel stores, due to its low installation costs per tag: Countless stores have RF EAS gate readers installed which cannot work as RAIN RFID readers.

The primary, RAIN RFID related feature of the new AD-362r6-P inlays enables retailers to benefit from improved inventory accuracy, enhanced brand security, and the ability to create a more satisfying shopping experience.

“Our new dual-technology AD-362r6-P inlay is proof to our ability to listen and quickly respond to our retail customers who need to leverage RFID capabilities with their RF EAS infrastructure including gate readers installed at store exits to mitigate theft,” says Hal Hikita, head of product line management, Avery Dennison Intelligent Labels.
