Vizinex RFID Releases Sentry UltraSlim 270 RFID Tag

Vizinex RFID, a manufacturer of RFID tags tailored to specific applications, has launched a new ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) tag for mounting on metal, known as the Sentry UltraSlim 270. The tag's narrow footprint and low profile make it suitable for use on small tools, weapons, slim IT assets, laboratory equipment and work-in-process tracking, the company reports. Like all Sentry products, the UltraSlim 270 can easily be adapted for applications involving overmolding or overspraying, embedding in metal or composites, and repetitive high-temperature exposure, such as autoclave service.

The tag features an Alien Technology Higgs 3 integrated circuit and supports the EPC Gen 2 and ISO 18000-6C specifications. Measuring 36.3 millimeters by 6.9 millimeters by 1.8 millimeters (1.4 inches by 0.3 inch by 0.07 inch), the Sentry UltraSlim 270 is a mount-on-metal tag with a read range of 3 to 5 feet. Its thin profile, only 0.07 inches thick, keeps the tag out of a user's way, the company reports, and makes it very unlikely that the tag will become dislodged during use. The tag provides 96 bits of Electronic Product Code (EPC) memory and 512 bits of user memory.

Vizinex offers various options for the UltraSlim 270, including those that support the U.S. or E.U. UHF bands, as well as an embeddable version for customers who wish to mount the tag within the body of an object. With the high-temperature/high-impact (HT/HI) upgrade, the tag's temperature tolerance is -58 degrees Fahrenheit to +365 degrees Fahrenheit (-50 degrees Celsius to +185 degrees Celsius), and the upgraded tag is resistant to rough handling and aggressive chemistries, and can survive hundreds of autoclave cycles. Flexible label configurations and data encoding options are also available.
