We are thrilled to announce a significant milestone for our RFID portfolio – the Tyfung inlay from Checkpoint Systems has officially secured ARC Spec Z accreditation, proving its credentials for Quick-Serve Restaurants (QSR) and the tagging of cartons containing food items.

This achievement underscores our commitment to providing top-tier, innovative solutions for inventory management and tracking across a variety of industries.


Why did Tyfung pass ARC Spec Z?

Developed to offer outstanding performance for logistics usage, with a high read range (18-20 meters) and low sensitivity making it ideal for use through the supply chain.

As Quick Serve Restaurants (QSR) venture into RFID tracking, the precision of ARC Spec Z is crucial. It assures brands of seamless RFID integration into their operations. Tyfung’s large memory and capability of both complex and extensive encoding allows it to effortlessly meet the requirements for Spec Z, alongside the existing 15 ARC specs that it has passed, including ones for retail, electronics and Walmart specific requirements.


Why are ARC specs important?

ARC Quality certification, awarded and maintained by Auburn University, guarantees that the tag manufacturer has a robust Quality Management System (QMS) in place, encompassing crucial aspects of RFID tag design and manufacturing. ARC maintains an extensive database storing comprehensive performance and quality data for RFID tags available in the market.

ARC certifications robustly test each inlay to determine whether they are fit for specific use cases across retail, logistics and other industries. Checkpoint is proud to have 46 inlays ARC certified across our portfolio.


As we continue to push the boundaries of what's possible in RFID solutions, the Tyfung inlay's ARC Spec Z certification is more than just an accolade; it's a testament to our dedication to excellence and innovation.
