It features an inlay size of 43mm x 18mm with a label size of 45mm x 30mm, which is midrange for some of the popular apparel form factors. It is ISO18000-6C compliant and can be can be encoded and printed to carry EPC data in several formats, including RFID EPC air protocol, printed barcode and human readable text.
