Sentry Slim

Dimensions: 1.43” x 0.43” x 0.11”

Tag Overview

Product Number: AST1-017-0001

The Sentry Slim RFID tag is a low-profile, high-performance mount-on-metal tag that delivers excellent read range in the compact size required for tracking IT networking equipment, servers in data centers and more.

At just 0.1” thick (less than two dimes) Vizinex’s Sentry Slim RFID tag provides an impressive read range of 8-10 feet when mounted on metal surfaces – exceeding FSTC requirements. Its small footprint makes it the ideal slim RFID tag solution for weapons, laboratory equipment, process tracking and other mission-critical applications.

Like all Vizinex RFID tags, the Sentry Slim has the durability to provide a lifetime of reliable, accurate asset tracking.

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