A new, small format RFID tag has been introduced for item-level tagging by apparel retailers.

The Smartrac WebLite inlay has an antenna size of just 46mm x 15mm and can be used when RFID-tagged items are stacked in close proximity to each other.

Describing the product as "an important next step for item level identification in retail," Michael Teitelbaum, CEO of R-Pac International Corporation, adds: "Reduced tag size without compromise in performance has become very important."

R-Pac has worked with Smartrac to bring the product to market.
