Vizinex RFID, Xtreme RFID Collaborate on Mini RFID Tag

Vizinex RFID, a company that develops and manufactures RFID tags for specific applications, has announced that it has collaborated with Xtreme RFID to launch a new tag specifically built for smaller equipment. The new tag is known as the VX-Mini.

"Our first VX product, the VX-Mid, was very well received in the market. Our customers have asked for the same ruggedness and mounting flexibility in a tag with a smaller footprint and a lower price point, and the VX-Mini is our response to that request," said Ken Horton, Vizinex's CEO, in a prepared statement. "We believe current customers using returnable transport items and tagging heavy equipment or tooling, or anyone who wants to better track high-value assets in outdoor or industrial environments, will get what they need from the VX-Mini."

The VX-Mini measures 17.02 millimeters by 61.47 millimeters by 7.5 millimeters. The mount-on-metal tag has a read range of up to 10 feet and a temperature tolerance of -40 degrees to 374 degrees Fahrenheit. According to the two companies, it can be optionally upgraded to a high-temperature version if higher tolerance is required.
