Monza 5 Logo

Monza® 5 tag chips enable unmatched read reliability and encoding performance to yield optimal RFID business results with low applied tag cost, by delivering:

  • Industry’s highest read sensitivity, enabling smaller tag designs, longer read ranges, and practical use cases

  • Fastest encoding speed available—over 3,000 tags/minute

  • Highest write sensitivity—more than four times as sensitive as competitors

  • Easy-to-deploy, reliable and scalable chip-based serialization method with Monza Self-Serialization

  • 48 bits serialized Tag Identifier (TID) memory for authentication and anti-cloning application support

  • FastID™ inventory, which boosts TID-based inventory speeds by up to 2‑3 times (patent pending)

  • Repassivation layer, providing consistent performance and easing inlay and label manufacturing (patent pending)
