QID Solutions launched a new reusable smartPIN RFID hard tag, an add-on solution designed to offer electronic article surveillance for fashion and apparel retailers.
The smartPIN tag utilizes the UPM Combo inlay equipped with NXP’s UCODE chip. It works with existing technologies and locks via a standard pin, and also works independently as an RFID EAS tag.
The patent-pending QID smartPIN hard tag is EPC Gen 2-compliant, making it ideal for multi-brand shops, in-shop inventory use or for the whole supply chain from the distribution centre to the point-of-sale.
Each smartPIN tag is light and durable, weighing only 4.5 grams and able to withstand extreme conditions. There is also the option for combing barcode to create an easy and smooth transition into using RFID.
Technowave Group, a supplier of autoID systems in the Middle East, will be the first to implement the ultra-high frequency RFID based solution to top brand retail companies in the Arabic Gulf Countries and India.
