Impinj announced the launch the Monza 5 tag chip and STP source tagging platform for implementing item-level RFID across retail markets and supply chains.
The new Monza 5 tag chip is designed specifically for serializing items such as apparel, electronics, cosmetics, jewelry and pharmaceuticals.
Monza 5 tag chips also include Impinj’s patented SafeWrite mechanism that ensures accurate and reliable operation when writing data into the tag. In addition, Monza tag chips support two unique, patent-pending features designed to boost inventory performance for traditional EPC and TID-based applications:
- TagFocus mode minimizes redundant reads of strong tag signals, allowing the reader to focus on harder-to-find tags with weaker signals.
- FastID mode makes applications based on tag ID (TID), such as authentication, practical for the first time by boosting TID-based inventory speeds.
The STP source tagging platform is an ultra-high frequency RFID reader system with hardware and software optimized to streamline high-speed commissioning during item-level tagging. STP is capable of encoding up to 1,750 tags per minute, thus enabling large-scale deployments. STP also simplifies source tagging by supporting both inline and bulk encoding solutions.
Built on the Impinj Speedway Revolution reader with Autopilot technology, the STP platform also includes software application development and application-specific antennas and operating modes tuned for inline encoding or bulk encoding.
