Extronics’ AeroScout’s WI-Fi-based active RFID tags enable the wireless network infrastructure to accurately track the location and condition of valuable assets or people by sending short 802.11 messages at a predefined interval.

Its main features include long battery life, flexible mounting options call button and tamper-proof options, onboard sensor capabilities, the ability to store and receive data messages and a clear channel assessment that avoids Wi-Fi data traffic interference.

Geoff Smith, Rajant’s Executive VP, Sales and Marketing said: “Rajant’s latest firmware release, 11.19.1, provides Extronics Wi-Fi tags with intrinsically safe support when using Rajant’s LX5, ME4 or KM3 network.

Rajant recently explored the 'Connected Port of Things' in an exclusive Port Technology technical paper

“This is especially relevant to personnel tracking, which is a requirement for underground mines, and other industries, such as oil and gas, petrochemical and ports.

“Given Rajant’s fully mobile private wireless network never breaks for handoff and always seeks the most efficient data path, customers using Rajant technology will not only be able to track personnel, but also identify productivity bottlenecks to improve operational efficiency.”

 

Rajant's Director of Business Development, EMEA Market, spoke to PTI on leveraging data 

 

Chris Sadler, Extronics’ Business Development Manager for the Americas, also commented: “Extronics is focused on helping industrial customers improve safety and efficiency through communication and situational awareness, so it’s great to partner with Rajant.

“With their Kinetic Mesh wireless network now certified as compatible with AeroScout technology, we’re looking forward to providing robust solutions that suit our customers’ requirements.”
