New Logistics Label from Confidex

Confidex has released the Crosswave Neo, a printable label for reliable, high volume logistics applications. The ground-breaking label features dual dipole behaviour with 360 degree read angle and leverages Impinj’s latest RAIN RFID tag chip.


Demand for transparent supply chains and fast reliable product delivery has put pressure on all members of the industrial, manufacturing, logistics and retail markets. As goods flow through a diverse supply chain at unprecedented rates, the need for reliable RFID tag and label reading has never been higher.


Crosswave Neo, the latest of Confidex’s Go family of RFID label products, was designed to solve these problems. Crosswave Neo combines its patented dual-dipole behaviour with the latest generation IC -- the new Impinj M730 RAIN RFID tag chip, providing both high performance and improved tag readability.


Confidex’s unique innovation and engineering has resulted in Crosswave Neo’s patent-pending antenna design– making it the first product like it on the market. Its dual-dipole behaviour enables reliable, fast reads in high volume, even when the label orientation varies. As a result, fast moving labels can be read at 360 degrees, without concern for the orientation of packages or cartons.


However, unlike traditional dual-dipole RFID labels, the Crosswave Neo does not require the dual-port IC for omni-directional reading. Instead, Crosswave Neo provides constant 360-degree reading performance and polarization with a single port, from any and all orientations, even when using linear reader antennas.
