Sentry Slim II

Dimensions: 1.43” x 0.43”x 0.11”

Tag overview

Product Number: US: AST1-162-0001 | EU: AST1-176-0001

The Sentry Slim II is the second generation of Vizinex’s most successful mount on metal tag.

The new generation is exactly the same package as its predecessor but packs 60% more read range with a price that is 20% lower. Now tracking metal assets can be implemented more cost-effectively than ever, with more reliable read performance at a lower price point.

The new tag has a low profile, just 2.8mm tall, and a relatively small footprint of 36mm x 11mm.   Despite this small package, it provides a read range of 15-18’ when mounted on metal objects.   This product solves many problems for those needing more read range when tracking assets like IT devices, weapons, tooling, construction equipment and other metal assets.   Like all Sentry branded products, it is built on a robust platform that will tolerate repeated exposures to temperatures up to 185° C, vibration, impact and exposure to many chemicals.   The tag boasts an IP rating of 68.

The Slim II will enhance the performance of asset management systems in industries already using the Slim tag.   Industries like rental equipment, oil and gas, first responders, reusable containers in manufacturing and transportation, medical equipment and IT devices will reap the benefits of this improved performance, and will get substantially more ‘bang for the buck’ from their investment in RFID tags.

The Sentry Slim II is available in US or EU versions.
