Orlando, Fla. -- Checkpoint Systems Inc. is releasing its new Zephyr 2 RFID label, which is certified by the University of Arkansas’ ARC Center for item-level tagging of all apparel categories in the U.S. and Europe. The Zephyr 2 RFID label design has an integrated UCode 7 chip from NXP Semiconductors, and comes with optimal read/write sensitivity for accurate counting and quicker encoding.
The Zephyr 2, offered with a label size of 54x34mm, has been optimized for performance with all of Checkpoint’s RFID solutions. It has received certification from the University of Arkansas’ ARC Center for Categories A (denim), B (polybagged apparel), C (boxed items) and D (hanging apparel) for use in North America, and Categories I (apparel) and K (apparel) for European apparel items. This will allow retailers to use the same tag globally across many categories.
“Major apparel retailers have expressed a strong interest in the capabilities that the Zephyr 2 offers, particularly those with broad apparel product lines with large-scale deployment needs,” said Umesh Cooduvalli, Checkpoint’s senior director, RFID consumables. “We’re excited that this product is already being used in RFID pilots and we look forward to scaling up supply for future deployments.”
