The Sentry 2505 is a mount on metal UHF RFID tag that packs a lot of responsiveness in a small and low cost package. This new tag matches the RF performance of much larger tags. Now there is a small tag with an 8-9’ read range needed for many tool, weapon and IT asset tracking applications.
The new tag is less than 1/10th of an inch tall (2.4mm), less than an inch long (25mm) and only 0.21” wide (5mm) but delivers 8 – 9.5 feet of read distance when mounted on metal. If the tagged object is long and narrow in shape, the read distance can be even longer. Like all Sentry brand tags, this one is rugged and tolerates rough handling and aggressive chemicals, can endure temperatures up to 350° F, and can withstand severe vibration.
Standard on this tag is the ViziCore construction which provides added impact and temperature resistance for use in tough environments. And, like all Sentry products, the 2505 can easily be adapted for applications involving overmolding, overspraying, embedding in metal or composites or repetitive high temperature exposure, such as Autoclave service.
The Sentry 2505 is available in US or EU versions.
