Extronics offers a cost-effective Wirepas location tracking solution for hazardous areas. Whether you need to track assets or personnel, our Wirepas location tracking solution is the ideal choice.
The iTAG XB Range of Wirepas tags and anchors offers a flexible set of options that are certified for use in hazardous areas. To support the location tracking system, our configurable Extronics Location Engine (ELE), provides ‘dot on a map’ data that can be easily integrated directly in your front end platform of choice.
With our Wirepas location tracking solution, you can effectively manage your assets and personnel in hazardous areas while minimizing costs .
iWAP XN3 X2000
The Extronics iWAP XN3-X2000 is powered by Cassia Networks and supports Wirepas protocols, meaning it is the perfect gateway to support your data communication back to the Extronics Location Engine.
The iTAG XB40 is a battery powered anchor. The installed anchors form their own self-healing, scalable Wirepas mesh network. The mesh network receives data from the tags within it. The anchors self-negotiate the best way to offload the tag data to the gateway.
The Extronics Location Extronics is specifically designed to support multiple location technologies, including Wirepas and BLE. Configure your site technology via the desktop application and integrate your location data directly into your front-end platform of choice using the available API.
How Wirepas Mesh Works for Location
Extronics iTAG XB range of location tags support Wirepas protocol. The Wirepas solution uses RSS (Received signal strength) to approximate the location of a tag. It is like Wi-Fi in this way, however the location anchors used in a Wirepas system, like our iTAG XB40, are battery powered, require no external cabling, and form their own self-healing, scalable mesh network.
Network management is handled by each location anchor in a Wirepas mesh network. The anchors self-negotiate the best way to offload the RSS data to the positioning server via a Wirepas gateway. This ensures there are no single points of failure if one anchor should fail.
Getting Started with Extronics Wirepas Location Tracking
Pick your tag options
Whether you are tracking assets, personnel, or both, our Wirepas enabled iTAG XB Range of intrinsically safe tags has a solution. Available in small battery powered wearable options, including a lanyard with integrated access control card slot, or larger asset tags with multiple mounting options across the range.
Wirepas Location Anchor
The iTAG XB40 is a robust battery powered Wirepas enabled BLE anchor. The small form factor and multiple mounting options makes it easy to install anywhere on your site.
The iWAP XN3 X2000 is a Zone 2/ Div 2 BLE gateway that supports Wirepas protocols. The gateway is used to communicate the RSS data from the Wirepas mesh to the Extronics Location Engine. If you do not want to use the X2000 or have a Zone 1/ Div 1 requirement, no problem. Our iWAP range of wireless enclosures are vendor agnostic, meaning you can pick your BLE gateway of choice. As long as it supports Wirepas, we are good to go!
