Alien SIT RFID White Wet Inlay (ALN-9613, Higgs-3)



Alien SIT RFID White Wet Inlay (ALN-9613, Higgs-3) 

Powered by Alien®’s break-through Higgs™3 UHF RFID IC, the “SIT” is a near-fi eld (aka magnetic or inductive) coupled antenna design, the ALN-9613 delivers industry leading EPC Gen 2 performance and reliability in an ultra compact form factor. The “SIT” is especially well-suited for very small item-level applications where geometries are critical. The near-fi eld coupling properties make this tag ideal where read range requirements are short or for applications on aqueous materials. With its Higgs-3 core, the SIT delivers excellent performance and a rich feature set including a 32-bit TID, a 64-bit Unique TID for authentication and serialization applications, an extensible EPC memory bank, 512-bits of user memory for distributed data applications, and password protected read and write support capabilities to prevent unauthorized viewing and modification of the tag’s data. ALN-9613 inlays are World Tag compliant, enabling consistent operation across the diverse frequencies of the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Africa.
