The iCITE101 brings the latest AeroScout exciter technology into hazardous areas and harsh environments.
Exciters provide robust and sophisticated RFID detection capabilities, using Extronics Advance AeroScout Tags that can be accurately located in real time by the system. Exciters transmit low frequency (LF) signals to trigger active RFID Tags as they pass through a chokepoint or as they approach the Exciter. The Tags in turn transmit messages to compatible Access Points in the Tag’s range. This provides an instant acknowledgment of an event confirming that a tagged asset has passed through a gate, doorway, or some other well-defined area. These advanced detection capabilities have proven usability, dependability, and scalability, as well as flexibility to enable a wide variety of valuable applications for many industries to streamline business processes and improve operational efficiency.
Logistics organisations can update inventory records by automatically determining which assets are within the respective defined areas, thus ensuring real-time knowledge of inventory levels without manual checks or barcode scanning.
Based on the locations of assets, organizations across industries can use Exciters to trigger automated events and alerts. For example, in a shipping yard, notifications can be initiated when vehicles pass through its gates to enter or exit.
Manufacturing companies can track the location of equipment, carriers, and even the work-in-process (WIP) inventory during a production cycle. This provides a real-time view of production items, both in terms of type and quantity, which have progressed through each step in the process, thus streamlining the manufacturing operations.
Organisations with expensive and mission-critical equipment can Tag valuable assets that are intended to remain within a specified area. The AeroScout system can track the location of such tagged assets and trigger an alert when they pass through an exit point or enter a restricted area.
Exciters can be installed to improve the safety level of employees and customers. When installed at the entrances of restricted areas, Exciters trigger alerts if unauthorised persons attempt to enter. For example, instant notifications can be sent if someone comes in proximity of a restricted area on an oil rig
