RTLS Tags

 

Knowing the what, where and when

In a real-time location system, tags are wireless identification devices that transmit data packets, also referred to as location blinks. These data packets are received by anchors which communicate to the location engine and calculate the position of those tags. Together, these elements provide the required infrastructure to monitor and track the presence, movements and precise location of assets, personnel and vehicles in real-time location applications.

Supporting bi-directional communication, Inpixon’s tags both transmit and receive data. Location blinks sent to the location engine from tags contain a timestamp and sensor data, including temperature, battery voltage and motion measurements. Messages can also be sent back to tags to configure them and to control tag’s actuators, such as LEDs.

Which of our RTLS tags is right for you?

Asset Tag

The Inpixon Asset Tag is a long-range, industrial-grade chirp spread spectrum (CSS) tag that accurately tracks the real-time location and movements of critical mobile assets across large facilities such as warehouses, manufacturers, hospitals and other process-driven environments.

Personnel Tag

The Inpixon Personnel Tag is a compact, lightweight ultra-wideband (UWB) tag that helps you precisely locate personnel, visitors and employees in real-time to support critical safety, security and productivity use cases.

Inpixon Asset Tag

Scalable, long-range asset tracking tag for industrial-grade deployments

The Inpixon Asset Tag is a chirp RF tag that enables accurate, real-time location tracking of high-value assets over a long-range of up to 300 meters. When affixed to mobile assets, the Inpixon Asset Tag works with our open and versatile RTLS components to deliver real-time distance, activity, sensor and location tracking, for digital visibility of assets that helps business improve safety, productivity and accelerate efficiency.

This small, durable tag leverages our unique chirp-enabled RF technology for long-range accessibility with protection against RF interference and indoor to outdoor support, allowing businesses to track critical assets throughout large facilities.

With its deployment-ready design, the Inpixon Asset Tag helps businesses deliver highly scalable and efficient IoT-enabled solutions, while reducing time-to-market and cost. Featuring two configurable location blink modes, on motion and while stationary, this tag is ideal for warehouse and factory environments for the tracking of fixtures, tools, pallets, inventory, carts, trolleys, vehicles, robots and more
