Sentry Cable

The rugged Sentry Cable RFID tag was designed specifically for tracking insulated electrical cables and similar applications.

Diameter-agnostic and easy to install, the Sentry Cable RFID tag can be applied directly to cables of any diameter via a rugged, plastic holder. A read range of 8-10 feet provides complete, accurate readings for all your cable tracking needs.

The Sentry Cable RFID tag is durable enough to last as long as the cable itself and because no restrictive sleeve is required for installation, any cable can be tagged with the same basic RFID tag.

The Sentry Cable can be fastened with our durable plastic holder. This affordable attachment method can withstand significantly cold weather conditions and high impacts. Its clear window provides the opportunity to add a barcode or human readable label in addition to RFID.
