Vizinex RFID, a developer and manufacturer of high performance RFID tags tailored to specific applications, recently launched the Sentry Midrange II tags, the second generation of the company’s tag for tracking larger metal assets. With a read range of 25 feet when mounted on metal, the Sentry Midrange II allows for tagging a variety of assets, including reusable containers, oil field assets and construction equipment.
The Sentry Midrange II is 30 percent smaller (footprint is 39mm x 17mm) than its predecessor, but it provides a broader frequency response at a price that is 25 percent lower. The tag’s optional cover provides extra protection for the RF device and the flexibility to use bolts, rivets or zip-ties for attachment. The tag is made in the U.S.A.
Industries that use this type of RFID tag include government/military, manufacturing, waste management, rental equipment and oil and gas. Applications for the tag include placement on special transport items/reusable containers, logistics/yard management and tool and die tracking.
“Improvements in RF chip design and Vizinex’s expertise at matching the new chips to highly efficient antennae, is improving the performance and reducing the cost of RFID,” said Bob Oberle, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Vizinex RFID. “The rugged Sentry Midrange II is tolerant of repeated exposure to high temperatures, vibration and impact.”
