Second Generation Sentry Cable II Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Tag from Vizinex RFID has Improved Chip Design, Lower Cost

Vizinex RFID, the industry leader in developing and manufacturing high performance radio frequency identification (RFID) tags for specific applications and industries, is pleased to announce its launch of the second generation of its highly successful tag for cable assemblies, the Sentry Cable II.

“A number of companies that use large, expensive cable assemblies in industries like event management, video production, power generation and construction have the difficult task of tracking and managing miles of cable. The Sentry Cable II makes that job easy and enables quick counting and identification of specific cables, even when cables are piled together,” said Ken Horton, CEO, Vizinex. “This new tag offers a 100% improvement in read range at a price that is 15% lower than the first generation tag.   It will improve the performance and lower the cost of asset management systems that include the tracking of these cable assemblies.”

Like the earlier Cable tag, this new generation is compatible with Vizinex’s line of cable tag holders.   These holders firmly secure the tags to the cable assemblies, and protect the tags from the harsh conditions in which many of these cables are deployed. The holders are available in six sizes to fit cables with diameters from 0.425” up to 1.325”. Like all Sentry-branded products, the tag is built on a robust platform that will tolerate repeated exposures to temperatures up to 185° C, vibration, impact and exposure to many chemicals. The tag boasts an IP rating of 68.

The tag is ideal for a variety of uses cases across industries, such as:

  • Rental equipment
    • Video/movie production
    • Power generation and backup
    • Events production
  • Government/Military
