Tag overview

Product Number: AST1-068-0001

The XLR provides exceptional long-range asset identification performance in a sleek, compact and durable package.

It’s the ideal cost-effective alternative to active RFID tags for military asset tracking, cargo and container tracking, yard and fleet management, and pallet tracking.

Smaller than most smartphones, the XLR passive UHF RFID tag is engineered for use on a wide range of surfaces, including metal, wood and most plastics. Its professional-grade industrial design – incorporating a rigid, stainless steel backplate – withstands the rigors of even the most demanding outdoor and indoor environments, including vibration, weather elements, salt sprays, thermal cycles and repeated impacts.

The XLR’s read range of 85 feet on metal surfaces and 65 feet off metal with polycarbonate protection make it a cost-effective long-range RFID solution for the defense, transportation, aerospace, marine, automotive and heavy machinery industries.

The XLR also offers significant customization opportunities; Vizinex customers can include their logo, specify cover color or add a barcode label.
