Extronics Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) offer a range of location tracking solutions for personnel and assets. Designed for use in harsh and hazardous areas, our solutions increase productivity, improve operational efficiency and add a critical layer of worker safety.
Ensuring personnel are where they need to be when they need to be there can improve operational efficiency, increase productivity and reduce costs. Extronics RTLS gives you full visibility on the location of your personnel and assets and includes access control options, giving you added visibility, accountability and increased security.
Extronics RTLS solutions can help you find key assets quicker, whilst providing critical information to help manage asset utilisation. Whether it is parts, tools, rented assets or even completed inventory, easily and accurately find what you need to get the job done with access to data to improve operational efficiency and productivity.
Extronics RTLS solutions provide real-time information when a worker is in need of assistance. Have confidence in your worker safety with the inclusion of emergency call buttons and man-down detection on selected tags in the range, meaning you have the knowledge you need to make the right decisions in the event of an emergency.
In an evacuation scenario, personnel are mustered to specific gathering points where the Evacuation Monitoring application in MobileView automatically tracks which workers have reached safety as they arrive. Quickly identify non-mustered workers and send help directly to their current location.
Why Install a Real Time Location System?
RTLS technology is designed to help you determine the location of your people and assets, adding a critical layer to your digital and connected site. Hazardous or harsh environments should not be any different. We have spent over 15 years installing RTLS solutions into some of the world’s most hazardous and harsh environments for a wide variety of use cases. Learn more about the different aspects to our RTLS solutions below.
ATEX, IECEx, MET
All our RTLS products are intrinsically safe with options covering ATEX, IECEx and MET approvals across the range. Our products have been designed and tested for use in the harshest industrial environments, with robust enclosures rated to IP65, IP67 and IP68, and an operating temperature range of -20°C to +55°C.

Extronics RTLS Solution Utilise the Latest Technology
Location Technology Sources
Wi-Fi networks have been the go-to standard for industrial RTLS applications for many years and can provide accurate location of personnel and assets.
Global Position System (GPS)
In outdoor environments, GPS is an ideal location technology. Wireless in these areas is only used to provide data backhaul to the location engine.
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
BLE provides a low cost alternative for asset and personnel tracking. BLE anchors are battery powered and low cost to install. Anchors trilaterate the tag location to achieve high levels of accuracy.
Not only a mainstay for location tracking purposes, Wi-Fi is a proven technology for IoT device connectivity applications across most industries.
LoRaWAN (Long Range)
LoRaWAN is a proprietary low-power wide-area network modulation technique. It has seen wide use in IIoT applications for long-range communications links.
Cellular networks, such as private LTE, are gaining ground in the process industries and require less infrastructure than Wi-Fi to provide the same level of connectivity.
More Information About Extronics RTLS
Extronics Hybrid RTLS is the only practical solution to site-wide location tracking in the process industries; using two or more location technologies as part of the same solution to deliver wider coverage, greater location accuracy, and reduce the total cost of ownership.
Extronics Wirepas solution is a low-cost end-to-end location tracking system for both personnel and assets. The battery-powered iTAG XB40 anchors form a self-healing mesh network for communication. iTAGXB asset and personnel tags then send the tags data via the mesh to a Bluetooth gateway and onto the Extronics Location Engine.
Extronics Location Engine
The Extronics Location Engine (ELE) software takes your location data to provide a “dot on a map” for visualisation platforms. An efficient and highly configurable middleware engine with an open access REST API and WebSocket’s for flexible integration with front-end applications.
MobileView software is an out of the box frontend visibility platform that enables you to track, locate, monitor, and manage your assets and personnel from a single platform. Enterprise-ready, highly configurable, and scalable, MobileView doesn’t need special software to use – just an internet browser.
Bluetooth Low Energy
BLE offers customers a low-cost location tracking solution. Extronics range of battery-powered BLE tags and anchors under the iTAG XB product range are a perfect solution for customers looking to deploy a low-cost location tracking system in their hazardous area.
