RF-RFID Labels Aids Retailers in Electronic Article Surveillance

Checkpoint Systems, Inc., a global supplier of merchandise availability solutions for the retail industry, has announced patent-pending dual RF-RFID labels that incorporate UCODE 7 chips from NXP.

The UNO Series helps retailers protect health/beauty/cosmetics categories, hard goods and apparel merchandise using their current electronic article surveillance infrastructures -- while at the same time delivering radio-frequency identification benefits in inventory cycle counting and merchandise management for omnichannel fulfillment and auto replenishment.

The UNO Series with UCODE 7 chip requires less power for increased read and write sensitivity -- providing faster performance in reading and encoding. It also provides greater broadband width, which enables improved functionality internationally, where the frequencies of readers’ RF signals vary from region to region. This means that regardless of the point of manufacture or destination location, the UCODE 7 will perform reliably, Checkpoint says.
