Leverage hybrid location technology across your entire industrial site with the all NEW iTAG X30 – improving worker safety and reducing the need for dense Wi-Fi infrastructure.
The iTAG X30 gives you unparalleled accuracy from a Real Time Location System (RTLS):
Hybrid location tracking is the only practical solution for site wide visibility in the process industries. The iTAG X30 is Wi-Fi, GPS, LF, and BLE compatible – meaning all indoor and outdoor areas can be tracked in real time. The iTAG X30 gives you unparalleled confidence compared to other RTLS:
The iTAG X30 has worker safety at its core. Designed to be rugged, the tag is a smart solution to your worker safety requirements.
Enable your workers to easily raise an alarm if they need help.
The iTAG X30 alerts the MobileView software with the worker’s location, meaning that assistance can be sent without delay to where it’s needed, reducing the risk of serious harm.
LED’s on the top and front of iTAG X30 will illuminate when the emergency call button has been activated.
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.
The iTAG X30 is simple to wear, with a durable integrated stainless-steel clip as well as lanyard mounting options. The clip and lanyard can also be used together to make sure the tag is firmly held in place.
The tag is small, lightweight, and can be worn several different ways. For example, on a belt, around a neck lanyard, or on a chest clip to suit your site and the worker’s duties.
The iTAG X30 comes with seven pre-defined user profiles, so you can save time during the set up and configuring process by simply choosing the profile that best matches your application. It’s easy to choose which profile you’d like to use with the Tag & Exciter Detector and Tag Manager BD, part of the Hardware Manager.
The iTAG X30 has a rechargeable internal battery, designed to last throughout the duration of multiple shifts.
Daily charging is recommended, however depending on usage and configuration profiles the iTAG X30 battery can last for several days at a time.
The iTAG X30 is easy to recharge – just plug the USB charging cable into an Extronics approved USB power supply. You can recharge it at work, at home, or even in the car*.
LED notifications alert the user when the battery is in need of charging – avoiding downtime.
The iTAG X30 was designed for use in industries such as oil and gas, chemical, petrochemical, mining, pharmaceutical, and heavy manufacturing. It’s fully certified for use in hazardous areas with flammable gas and dust:
It’s also highly rugged, made from durable materials and overmoulded for added toughness.
The iTAG X30 can use RSSI triangulation, LF exciters, GPS, or BLE beacons* to determine its location.
Extronics’ proprietary ELS software determines the tag location using a complex algorithm which includes GPS, RSSI triangulation, and LF location data. Additional configuration of hybrid zones within the ELS can further increase the accuracy.
For example, areas with a large number of Wi-Fi access points, such as indoor areas or processing areas with high metallic structures, can be configured as hybrid zones to make use of multiple technologies. This provides the ELS with as much information as possible to enable the decision making algorithm to accurately locate workers anywhere on site.
In less built-up outdoor environments, such as tank farms or storage yards, the inclusion of GPS technology in the iTAG X30 means fewer access points are required for accurate location tracking. The main purpose for Wi-Fi in these scenarios is to provide the backhaul of the location data to the ELS. For site-wide Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) functionality, you should consider the connectivity required for your RTLS requirements alongside the other uses of wireless networking, such as other sensor backhaul, data connectivity, or applications like VOIP.
The ELS integrates seamlessly with the MobileView visibility software giving you a clear picture of personnel and asset location in realtime
*BLE functionality available in future over-the-air updates.
Designed to provide market-leading functionality for years to come, the iTAG X30 can be updated over-the-air with new features, such as bi-directional call button acknowledgements for workers, utilising BLE beacons for improving accuracy, adding chokepoints or determining floor levels.
Automatic man down providing hands free alerting to MobileView in the event of a fall or serious health condition which needs emergency response quickly.
The iTAG X30 is the latest addition to the Extronics RTLS range, which is proven in safety, accountability, and productivity applications across the world. Using the other parts of the range, we can build an RTLS that’s tailored to your site and your application. The MobileView visibility software provides the central user interface, making it easy to see where your workers, visitors, and contractors are in real time, and the Instant Notifier provides alerts whenever workers press their emergency call buttons. Using exciters, such as the hazardous area certified iCITE101, you can add functionality such as turning tag on and off when workers arrive and leave site, or create safe muster areas where workers can be automatically accounted for by the RTLS in an emergency. You can also use the iTAG X30 alongside other types of RTLS tag, such as the hazardous area iTAG100 for workers who remain in areas with good active RFID RSSI triangulation (such as indoor areas), or asset tracking tags.
