Alien Technology - ALN 9X30 Series Squiglette

Based on Aliens innovative Squiggle antenna design, the ALN-9X30 Series Squiglette is a narrower version of the industry leading EPC Gen 2 range providing reliability at competitive prices. ALN-9X30 inlays are also World Tag compliant, enabling inlays that operate consistently across the diverse frequencies of the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Africa.

With its Higgs Family core, the Squiglette delivers unprecedented performance and a rich feature set for authentication and serialization applications, an extensible EPC memory bank, user memory for distributed data applications, and password protected read and write support capabilities to prevent unauthorised viewing and modification of the tags data. Typical applications for the Squiglette include, but are not limited to, corrugate cases, pallet placards, apparel hang tags, baggage tags, shipping labels, asset management, and file folder labels.

With the Higgs-4 core, the Squiglette delivers next generation performance and a rich feature set, yet is completely optimised for the highest volume enterprise, retail, and apparel applications.
