European Retailer Pilots RFID From Checkpoint Systems

checkpointCheckpoint Systems, a supplier of merchandise availability solutions, has released the 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. Pre-launch orders have been placed for Zephyr 2 RFID labels, which will be used in a pilot program for a large European retailer, according to a company press release.

The new Zephyr 2 has an integrated UCODE 7 chip from NXP Semiconductors, and features read and write sensitivity designed for accurate counting and quicker encoding. 

“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, Sr. Director of RFID Consumables at Checkpoint Systems. “We’re excited that this product is already being used in RFID pilots and we look forward to scaling up supply for future deployments.”
