Tag overview

Product Number: AST1-160-0001

The Sentry Duo II is the second generation of Vizinex’s highly popular Duo tag. This new multi-surface tag incorporates improvements in read range and surface compatibility in a new, slimmer package at a significantly lower price. Users get the mounting flexibility of the Duo, in a package that is only half as tall as the earlier generation tag.

The new tag is only 2.8mm tall, but delivers 7 – 8 foot read distance on plastic and other non-metal surfaces, and reading at up to 10 feet when mounted on metal.    The tag has a slot that can be used to hang the tag using wire or a zip tie.  Like all Sentry brand tags, this one is rugged and can take rough handling and aggressive chemicals, is tolerant of 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 Duo II 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 Duo II is available in US or EU versions.
