Sentry Slim Multi-Surface

Dimensions: 1.43” x .43” x .11”

Tag overview

Product Number: AST1-112-0001

The rugged Sentry Slim Multi-Surface RFID tag was designed specifically for tracking insulated electrical cables.

Engineered with easy installation in mind, the Sentry Slim Multi-Surface RFID tag is designed to fit into a plastic cable marker. It can also be applied directly to cables with diameters of at least 0.5 inches via vinyl heat shrink or clear electrical tape. A read range of 10-12 feet on cables provides complete, accurate readings for all your cable tracking needs.

The Sentry Slim Multi-Surface RFID tag solution also excels on assets embedded in metal, making it ideal for laptops and a range of other IT assets.

*The Sentry Slim Multi-Surface is a legacy product from Vizinex, though can still be purchased if you need a significant quantity. Check out the new Sentry Duo II with enhanced performance and less cost.
