UPM Raflatac has introduced a new series of UHF radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, under the names DogBone, ShortDipole, Frog and Gem. Updated in accordance with Electronic Product Code (EPC) Class 1, Gen 2 standards, the products have been enhanced with Impinj's Monza3 integrated circuits. DogBone, ShortDipole and Frog all offer 96-bit EPC memory, a high degree of read sensitivity and reliability across long read ranges. In addition, said UPM Raflatac, they function in difficult environments such as metals and liquids, and on closely packaged products. DogBone and ShortDipole are designed for a variety of supply-chain management applications such as pallets, cases and item-level use. Frog is intended for applications where the inlay orientation cannot be controlled. Gem, another new item-level tag from UPM Raflatac, is designed for accessories and cosmetic applications. It is especially suitable for inventory management of small goods, such as jewelry and watches. Gem can be easily read with a handheld or fixed reader.
