Alien SIT RFID White Wet Inlay (ALN-9713, Higgs-4)



Alien SIT RFID White Wet Inlay (ALN-9713, Higgs-4)

Powered by Alien®’s break-through Higgs™4 UHF RFID IC, the “SIT” is a near-field (aka magnetic or inductive) coupled antenna design, the ALN-9713 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-field coupling properties make this tag ideal where read range requirements are short or for applications on aqueous materials.

With its Higgs-4 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 128-bit EPC memory bank, 128-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-9713 inlays are World Tag compliant, enabling consistent operation across the diverse frequencies of the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Africa.
