Alien Technology - ALN 9714 Bio

Powered by Alien®’s break-through Higgs™4 UHF RFID IC and innovative antenna design, the ALN-9714 delivers industry leading EPC Gen 2 performance and reliability for use in pharmaceutical applications, especially glass vials or ampules containing fluids or powders.

With its Higgs-4 core, the “Bio” delivers next generation read and write performance, yet is completely optimised for the highest volume usage in pharmaceutical production facilities and handheld reader usage for logistics and supply chain.

An optimised memory footprint includes a 32-bit TID, a 64-bit Unique TID for authentication and next generation serialization applications, a 128-bit EPC memory bank, 128-bits of user memory for distributed data applications, and password protected read and write support capabilities to prevent unauthorised viewing and modification of the tag’s data.

ALN-9714 inlays are World Tag compliant, enabling consistent operation across the diverse frequencies of the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Africa.
