iTAG X20 Hazardous Area Worker Location Tag

The iTAG X20 is a worker location tag from the iTAG X-Range of products. Utilising Extronics hybrid location technology the iTAG X20 is ideal for customers looking to deploy a simply and cost-effective Wi-Fi based worker location tracking solutions. The iTAG X20 worker location tag is designed for large processing units where worker safety, productivity management, security and emergency response are critical. For sites with established Wi-Fi networks the iTAG X20 provides an ideal solution for worker location tracking. The tags built in BLE technology means the iTAG X20 can be used alongside the Extronics iTAG XB40 BLE anchor in areas where Wi-Fi is not available to extend your location tracking further.


  • Accurately locate your workers in hazardous and non-hazardous areas
  • Leverage hybrid technology, Wi-Fi, LF and BLE for accurate indoor and outdoor tracking
  • Each tag is fitted with an emergency call button
  • Fully certified for use in ATEX and IECEx hazardous areas.

Product Details

Make Use of Multiple Technologies

Hybrid location tracking is the only practical solution for site wide visibility in the process industries. The iTAG X20 is Wi-Fi, LF, and BLE compatible giving you unparalleled confidence compared to other RTLS solutions.

The iTAG X20 has worker safety at its core. Designed to be rugged, the tag is a smart solution to your worker safety requirements.

Unidirectional and Bidirectional Options

The iTAG X-Range offers both unidirectional and bidirectional options as part of the emergency call button response process. Bidirectional options available on the iTAG X20 and iTAG X30 models allow control room operators to send a visual and vibration acknowledgement to the person wearing the tag.

Man-Down Function

A built in accelerometer detects if a person has fallen. In the event a person is unconscious and unable to press the emergency call button after a fall, an automatic emergency response event is sent to MobileView to inform first responders of the location.

If a false alarm occurs, users have five seconds to deactivate the event alert by simply double tapping the tag.

BLE Location Tracking

The iTAG X20 is compatible with the iTAG XB40 BLE Anchor, meaning you can extend your location tracking in areas where Wi-Fi is not readily available. The is battery powered and its compact size means the iTAG XB40 BLE anchors can be easily installed with no need for cables. In addition, the signal strength threshold can be increased or decreased in the ELE (Extronics Location Engine) to manage location accuracy. The tag receives the signal from the BLE Anchor and measures the RSSI value. It then packages the data along with the BLE identifier and relays over Wi-Fi to the ELE at the next available opportunity .

Emergency Call Button

Workers can easily raise an alarm if they need help. The iTAG X-Range alerts the MobileView software with the worker’s location, meaning that assistance can be sent without delay to where itis needed.

Long Battery Life

The iTAG X-Range has a rechargeable internal battery, designed to last throughout the duration of multiple shifts. Simply plug the USB charging cable into an Extronics approved USB power supply.

Optional Integrated Access Control/Photo ID

The front of the tag has been designed to display access control or photo ID cards. By combining your access control with your worker location system, you can reduce the amount of equipment that workers are required to carry on site.

Access control cards with built in DESFire EV1 technology are specifically designed to fit inside the tag maintaining the compact form. A pop out card design means cards can be printed on a standard ID card printer, such as Matica and Magicard printers.

The integrated card system reduces the need to re-issue tags to employees who have lost their tracking tag or left it at home. This means you can reduce the inventory you need to carry and minimises repeated administrative work.

The clear cover protects the ID card from the harsh industrial environments and preserves the integrity of the photo, helping them stay in use for longer periods.

Over-the-air updates

Designed to provide market-leading functionality for years to come, the iTAG X20 can be updated over-the-air with new features.
