Alien Tread RFID White Wet Inlay (ALN-9874, Higgs-EC)

Designed for automotive tire, high-dielectric, general asset management, and supply chain applications, Alien Tread RFID White Wet Inlays offer robust performance on traditionally RF challenged assets and materials. Equipped with the Higgs-EC UHF RFID IC based "Tread" antenna design, ALN-9874 inlays offer an enhanced memory footprint that includes a 48-bit Unique TID for authentication and serialization applications and password protected read and write support to prevent unauthorized viewing and modification of the tag’s data. ALN-9874 inlays come with bit error correction, improved read/write sensitivity, robust memory retention, and 200,000 write cycles (2X that of competition). They deliver robust reliability of stored data as well as added protection against data loss/corruption. ALN-9874 inlays are World Tag compliant, enabling consistent operation across the diverse frequencies of the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Africa.
