Sentry Shortie

Dimensions: 1.03” x 0.43” x 0.11”

Tag overview

Product Number: AST1-076-0001

The Sentry Shortie RFID tag provides reliable, accurate readings ideal for tracking weapons and laboratory assets where space for tagging is limited.

The Sentry Shortie is a low profile, reduced footprint UHF mount on metal tag that offers a 6 – 8 foot read range in a short, thin package.

At just 1” long, it is particularly well-suited for weapons and laboratory asset tracking where space for tagging is limited. It is also suitable for metal IT Assets.

At just 0.11” thick, the Shortie is unobtrusive and, like all Sentry models, its core construction provides inherent durability for long lived assets.
