Sentry Shortie

Sentry Shortie

Dimensions: 1.03” x 0.43” x 0.11”

Tag overview

Product Number: AST1-183-0300 (US), AST1-183-0310 (EU)
* This tag can be upgraded for high temperature exposure.

Low Profile, Shorter Footprint UHF Mount-on-metal Asset Tag

The Sentry Shortie is the second generation of a low profile, reduced footprint UHF mount-on-metal tag that offers a 12-13.5 foot read range in a short, thin package. At just 1” long, it is particularly well-suited for weapons, tools, IT devices and other metal assets where space for tagging is limited. At just 0.11” thick, the Shortie is unobtrusive and, like all Sentry models, its core construction provides inherent durability for long-lived assets. The Sentry Shortie 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 Shortie is available in US or EU version.
