Kathrein RTLS-Transponder

The new Kathrein RTLS-T-1000 transponder series set a new IoT standard based on the real-time location and tracking solution. The unique combination of UWB with RAIN RFID and NFC technology in a robust IP67 housing allow an easy and seamless integration into an existing RFID infrastructure. The RFID UHF tag is used for mid-range detection, while the RFID NFC tag is used for near-field detection and smartphone communication. Based on the latest generation of wireless technology, the RTLS-T-1000 series provide a localisation precision of up to 10cm. Due to the fact that the transponder is fully integrated into the powerful Kathrein CrossTalk IoT platform, it is possible to achieve the next level of industrial revolution. The transponder has an innovative, flexible adapter mounting system that can be dynamically changed for fixed or temporary mounting, for example on vehicles or material container trolleys, depending on the application.

RTLS-Node

The Kathrein RTLS nodes can be easily supplied with powerand network via PoE. To keep the installation costs for the network as low as possible, the nodes also have their own optional 2.4 GHz radio network for data transfer. This means that only about 25% of the installed nodes require a cable connection to the network. The distance between the individual nodes can be up to 80 meters. The Kathrein RTLS-N-1000 series set a new IoT standard based on the real-time location and tracking solution. The unique combination of UWB with RAIN RFID and NFC technology allow an easy and seamless integration into the existing RFID infrastructure. Based on the latest generation of wireless technology, the RTLS-N-1000 series provide a localisation precision of up to 10 cm. Due to the fact that the nodes are fully integrated into the powerful Kathrein CrossTalk IoT platform, it is possible to achieve the next level of industrial revolution. The indoor version has an IP40 housing. Highlights: ▪ 3D localisation ▪ Real-time tracking ▪ Range per node: up to 80 m ▪ Precision: up to 10 cm ▪ 2.4 GHz backbone communication link ▪ Ready for more than 1000 tags ▪ PoE ▪ Multi-colour user LED ▪ Industrial housing
