UHF chips UCODE 8 are made by NXP Semiconductors and are very popular chips for UHF tags, UHF stickers/labels, UHF cards, and UHF wristbands.
They operate on a frequency range of 860 MHz to 960 MHz and are compatible with the UHF standards EPC Gen2v2, the Specification for RFID Air interface, and other worldwide regulations.
chips are particularly well suited for inventory management, and they support the EAS (Electronic Article Surveillance) applications and the mandatory commands like the ‘Kill Command’ which guarantees a user privacy after the chip has done its job. When a tracked item is purchased, the chip can be electronically killed and it cannot be used for unauthorized people tracking.
The most common applications for the UCODE 8 are fast and accurate inventory management, product tracking (from source to store), high-speed store checkout, loss prevention, and brand protection, etc.
Our UCODE 8 labels
are made from paper, they have a dimension of 45x18 mm, and they are applied on a roll.
They can be used on glass, wood, a wall, or on other plastic materials. They are not suitable for use on metallic materials because the metal attenuates the signal to such an extent that the chip no longer works.
You are welcome to buy white UHF stickers from stock, or send us an inquiry for printed stickers with your company logo, serial numbers, etc. We can produce customized stickers with different size, materials, or different chip variations.
Reading test for UHF stickers with a UCODE 8 chip
We tested the UHF stickers with a chip UCODE 8 with different kinds of readers and measured the reading distances. This is not an official test, but was made to provide information about what reading distances you may expect with your application.
The reading distance between the RFID transponder and the reader is affected by many different factors, like the size of the antennas and quality of the chips, the interferences of metal, and electromagnetic signals, etc.
