Checkpoint Systems Launches New Tags, Encoding Solutions

The company's latest offerings were introduced to serve the growing number of apparel retailers and their suppliers seeking to deploy RFID throughout their operations to increase sales, reduce out-of-stocks and enhance loss-prevention efforts.

By Beth Bacheldor

Feb. 24, 2012—Checkpoint Systems has announced expanded and new radio frequency identification encoding solutions, as well as the expansion of its RFID tag portfolio for apparel brand owners, their retail partners, and closed-loop apparel retailers and department stores. According to the company, its latest offerings are designed to meet the needs of retailers and vendors scaling up their RFID initiatives.

Checkpoint now offers three ways in which suppliers and retailers can uniquely encode tags: high-speed bulk encoding, RFID service bureaus and in-plant printing services. The high-speed bulk-encoding solution enables a distribution center to encode RFID tags applied onto multiple items within a single box at operational speed—which, Checkpoint reports, can reduce the amount of time required to encode large quantities of merchandise. To integrate the high-speed bulk-encoding solution, the firm reviews a DC's existing operations and then implements an RFID system customized to address that facility's unique needs. This solution, Checkpoint indicates, ensures the fastest and most accurate encoding of Electronic Product Code (EPC) numbers, without the need to manually open boxes and handle individual garments. The solution leverages what Checkpoint calls best-in-class hardware and software, and the company is currently implementing the solution at multiple locations.

High-Kick RFID Tag
While Checkpoint does not currently leverage Impinj's newly announced Monza Self-Serialization chip-based method of serializing EPCs (see Impinj Seeks to Make Serializing Data Easy) as part of its bulk-encoding solution, the firm indicates it may opt to do so in the future. In fact, a company spokesman says that Checkpoint will support Impinj's chip-based serialization for bulk encoding using its own OATxpress software if customers require it to do so in the future. To take advantage of Monza Self-Serialization, a business must employ EPC Gen 2 tags containing Monza 5 RFID chips, as well as Impinj's Source Tagging Platform on its readers.

In addition, Checkpoint has expanded its RFID service bureaus—which it will now offer in Asia, Europe, Central America and North America—where the firm encodes unique EPC numbers, prints variable data on labels at its own print shops and then ships the labels to suppliers' tagging locations worldwide.

Whirl RFID Tag

All of these new products and services work in conjunction with Checkpoint's existing Open EPC Number Management Solution, a cloud-based software application providing complete global EPC number management. New to the lineup of Checkpoint's integrated tags is the RFID Full-Color Graphic Tag—a custom, finished tag featuring full-color graphics to meet apparel retailers' branding needs. Checkpoint's line of integrated tags is available in a variety of form factors, the company says, including swing tickets, woven and care labels, and pocket and hard tags. The various tag and label formats for such applications as merchandise visibility and RFID-based electronic article surveillance (EAS) work with Checkpoint's existing RFID Overhead EAS Solution and RFID Pedestal EAS Solution.

Checkpoint now offers three new EPC Gen 2-compliant passive UHF RFID tag inlays for apparel brands, optimized for use on apparel merchandise: the High-Kick, Whirl and Triumph models. The Triumph is suitable for general apparel, basics, denim, intimates, wallets, hanging garments, poly-bagged packaged garments and densely stacked clothing, the company reports, and is optimized for heavier dielectric RFID performance for physical inventory control and RFID-based EAS applications. This model measures 72 millimeters by 16 millimeters (2.8 inches by 0.6 inch).

Triumph RFID Tag
The High-Kick, according to Checkpoint, is intended for general apparel, activewear, soft sports equipment, hanging apparel, poly-bagged packaged garments and densely stacked clothing. It has a square shape—which, according to the company, is a good form factor for smaller hangtags and compact label formats. This version measures 40 millimeters by 40 millimeters (1.6 inches by 1.6 inches).

Finally, the Whirl is suitable for general apparel, activewear, soft sports equipment, shoebox labeling, hanging apparel, poly-bagged packaged garments and densely stacked clothing. This model offers the strongest read-range performance of the three, relative to antenna size, and is Checkpoint's smallest far-field RFID label for apparel-tracking purposes. It is also tuned for heavier apparel dielectrics, the firm notes, allowing it to be attached to a variety of locations on a garment, including on stacks of jeans and other heavy items. This inlay measures 52 millimeters by 24 millimeters (2 inches by 0.9 inch).

Both the Triumph and the High-Kick models are manufactured with NXP Semiconductors' G2iL integrated circuit (IC), containing 128 bits of EPC memory, while the Whirl leverages Impinj's Monza 4D chip, which features 128 bits of EPC memory and 32 bits of user memory. All of these new products and services are available immediately, with the exception of the in-plant printing solution, which is expected to be made available next month.
