Vizinex RFID Releases Sentry Shortie 270 RFID Tag
RFID tag maker Vizinex RFID has launched a new ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) tag for mounting on metal. The Sentry Shortie 270 is the company's smallest tag and, according to Vizinex, is suitable for tracking small metal objects, such as weapons and tools.
Measuring 26 millimeters by 6.9 millimeters by 2.8 millimeters (1.02 inches by 0.27 inch by 0.11 inch) and weighing 0.8 gram, the Sentry Shortie 270 is a mount-on-metal tag. Made with an Alien Technology Higgs3 chip, the tag provides 96 bits of Electronic Product Code (EPC) memory, as well as 512 bits of user memory. It is offered in U.S. and E.U. frequencies, and an embeddable version is also available for customers looking to mount the tag within the body of a tagged object.
"We're excited to launch the Shortie 270. This is the smallest tag in our portfolio, and it was developed in response to customers' requests for a tag that can be used for tool and weapons tracking, where footprint for mounting a tag is at a premium," said Ken Horton, Vizinex's CEO, in a prepared statement. "Despite its diminutive footprint, the tag provides a read range of 3-5 feet, which is plenty for the 'check-in/check-out' applications in which it is often used. It is much less expensive than the ceramic tags that are sometimes specified for these applications and has the added advantage that the customer can specify a barcode label for the tag."
