Sentry Shortie 270

Dimensions: 1.03” x 0.27” x 0.11”

Tag overview

The Sentry Shortie 270 is a narrow footprint, mount on metal tag that provides the read range and low profile desired for use on small tools, weapons and slim IT assets.

At just over 1” long and 0.27” wide, it delivers a 3 – 5 foot read distance depending on the item being tagged. Its low profile also makes it suitable for weapons, laboratory equipment and work in process tracking.

Standard on this tag is the ViziCore construction which provides added impact and temperature resistance for use in these applications. And, like all Sentry products, the Shortie 270 can easily be adapted for applications involving overmolding/ overspraying, embeding in metal or composites or repetitive high temperature exposure, such as Autoclave service.

The Sentry Shortie 270 is available in US or EU versions.
