Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Vizinex RFID, a leading designer and manufacturer of off-the-shelf and cost-effective customized RFID tags, today announced its U.S.-made Sentry AST™ Long Range RFID tag that provides exceptional read distances of 45 feet in a sleek, compact, and durable package.
The Sentry AST™ Long Range tag is engineered for use on a wide range of surfaces including metal, wood, and most plastics. Its rugged, UV-stabilized ABS exterior is designed for outdoor and industrial environments to withstand repeated exposure to vibration, temperature extremes, mechanical shock, salt sprays, and other demanding conditions. It is ideal for use in military asset tracking, cargo and container tracking, yard/fleet management, and pallet tracking. The Sentry AST™ Long Range tag features broad frequency response that provides excellent read performance in the United States and Europe.
“The Sentry AST™ Long Range tag was designed and manufactured right here in our suburban Philadelphia office,” stated Ken Horton, CEO Vizinex RFID. “Its surprising size—smaller than most smart phones—provides long-range coverage for real-time asset loss prevention, inventory management, and personnel access control."
Vizinex RFID’s Sentry AST™ line of high performance, cost-effective, and application-specific RFID tags are based on a printed circuit board platform. This manufacturing process offers reliability and consistency in read range performance. At the core of the tag is a fiber-reinforced composite material that gives the Sentry AST its ruggedness.
The innovative, patent-pending tag design enables fast prototyping and affordable customization.
