  • Alien GT Inlay - ALN-9728 / ALN-9828
    The “GT” is a 30mm x 50mm RFID inlay form-factor especially suitable for hang-tags. This tag is specifically designed for high read performance in the retail and apparel markets where items are tightly packed on shelves or hangers....

  • GT inlays are now enhanced with the reliability, robustness and readability of the new Higgs-EC IC along with all the capabilities and features of the Higgs-4 version. The Sentinel Memory within the Higgs-EC is a unique error-correcting architecture that fixes single bit errors and detects rare dual bit issues. The Higgs-EC supports over 200,000 write cycle capability, two times that of other devices on the market today. Lastly, GT tags with Higgs-EC have best-in-class read and write larger sensitivity that allows larger read & write distances to be achieved and more rapid reading and encoding.

  • Alien Squiglette Inlay ALN-9630 / 9730 / 9730-E /
    The Alien Technology® “Squiglette” is a narrower version of its high-performance, general-purpose Squiggle® sibling....

  • For Squiglette applications that demand more on-tag storage of up to 800 NVAM bits. This enables storage of data for the purpose of avoiding additional network access that would otherwise be required for data retrieval.  

    Higgs 4 Squiggle offers BlastWrite™ mass-encoding for programming multiple tags at the same time, QuickWrite™ for writing a complete memory bank in one command and ultimate write-sensitivity which together provide the fastest mass-market tag encoding solution. Higgs 4 is provided pre-programmed with the ultimate enterprise-wide serialization scheme which enables efficient distributed mass-encoding of tags.

    All Squiglette inlays, including ALN-9730-E are World Tag compliant, enabling operation across the diverse frequencies of the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Africa. However, ALN-9730-E is also designed for the most challenging applications within European frequencies.

    Small form factor, non-near field read tag

    Despite its diminutive size (22 x 12.5mm), this tag uses conventional long range UHF antenna unlike many other competitive tag solutions.

    Offers read/write distances in the order of feet/meters unlike other competitive tags that are near-field and only read an inch or two.
