Sentry 06D

Dimensions: 0.24” x 0.14”

Tag overview

Part Number: AST1-143-0001

The Sentry 06D is a tiny UHF mount on metal tag that provides extraordinary read range for a footprint of less than 0.05 square inches.

This tag is only 6mm (0.24”) in diameter and only 3.6mm (0.14”) tall, but it delivers a 3-4 foot read distance. Its tiny size and low cost enables the tagging of smaller metal items for which there were previously only expensive, ceramic tags.

The Sentry 06D is built using Vizinex’s ViziCore construction, which is intrinsically impacted and temperature resistant. The 06D can easily be embeddied in metal for applications where a superficially mounted tag is not acceptable. The 06D is tolerant of repetitive exposure to high temperatures and many chemistries, such as Autoclave service.

The Sentry 06D is available in US or EU versions.
