Avery Dennison Introduces AD-332u8 RAIN RFID Inlay

Excelling in high density, close proximity conditions!

Avery Dennison (NYSE: AVY) has announced that the AD-332u8 inlay has passed the ARC category H requirements for demanding retail environments.

Having launched in 2019 prior to the category H specifications coming into force, this is the first inlay in the market with proven high volume deployments. AD-332u8 offers superior reliability in high density, close proximity conditions.

The Gen2 RAIN RFID (UHF) antenna design provides excellent bulk reading performance when tagged folded garments or other small items (e.g. t-shirts) are stacked on retail store floors or other storage areas, especially where large quantities of goods are located in a very confined space. That makes it particularly suitable for inventory accuracy (item-level tagging) and supply chain management applications.

AD-332u8 inlays are equipped with UCODE 8 chips from NXP, featuring 128-bits of EPC memory and a 96-bit Tag IDentifier (TID) with a 48-bit unique serial number factory-encoded into the TID.

The new RAIN RFID inlay measures 70 x 14.5 mm being the market’s smallest product that meets ARC category H specifications. It has also passed other application-relevant requirements as defined by the RFID Lab at Auburn University, including the following Specs: F, G, M, N, Q, W1, W2, W3, W4, W5, and W6.

Leading the development of retail-optimized inlays 

“With the new AD-332u8 inlay, Avery Dennison has underpinned its claim to be the technological leader in the development of retail and logistics-optimized inlays. The product has already proven its performance and reliability within high-volume customer projects in the fashion retail segment”, said Hal Hikita, Head of Product Line Management, Avery Dennison Intelligent Labels. 

Like all RFID products from Avery Dennison Intelligent Labels, AD-332u8 inlays are manufactured according to the industry’s highest quality standards, as confirmed by the RFID Lab at Auburn University. Avery Dennison is the only company worldwide to have been awarded the ARC accreditation for quality by the inspection body. AD-332u8 inlays are available globally in high volumes as of now.
