Ekahau Inc, a leading provider of Wi-Fi-based Real Time Location Systems (RTLS), at RFID World introduced four new Wi-Fi tags that expand the functionality of its real-time location tracking solutions.

The tags, which were designed in response to customer demand in a number of vertical markets, include a personnel badge tag that offers the industry's first two-way Wi-Fi pager capabilities and other solutions for industrial, retail and temperature sensitive environments.

"Many of our potential customers understood the value of real-time location tracking, but had unique needs that exceeded the capabilities of our T301A and T201 asset tags or T301-B badge tag." said Arttu Huhtiniemi, director of Product Management at Ekahau.

"With the new additions to our product line, we are addressing those customers' demands and delivering the functionalities to support a wider variety of applications."

All of Ekahau's tags support two-way communication, enabling the tags to both send and receive information for communication and remote tag management across any brand or generation of Wi-Fi network.

Ekahau's newest Wi-Fi tags include:
• T301BD - Building upon Ekahau's proven personnel badge technology, the T301BD is the first RTLS tag to offer Wi-Fi pager functionality. It enables users to send messages, status updates and alarms.

It also allows them to receive and acknowledge text messages and location-based alerts on a bright display screen that uses the latest OLED technology. The T301BD also is a cost-effective solution for replacing legacy paging systems and services as it leverages an enterprise's own Wi-Fi network.

• T301i - A locatable industrial tag with two-way signaling and a call button, the T301i is a wireless replacement for the traditional hard-wired factory call buttons, which are used for plant floor part replenishment, service requests, status updates and quality alerts. It is an ideal solution for any applications where remote call requests and two-way acknowledgement are required.

• T301T - By integrating a temperature sensor, the T301T can automatically report temperature readings in a remote location and notify users if the temperature exceeds a predefined threshold range.

Designed for automated monitoring of refrigerators, freezers and any Temperature sensitive areas in hospitals, retail stores and industrial applications, this tag's Wi-Fi capability enables it to support multi- party cold chain monitoring and management applications.

The T301T supports an optional remote platinum temperature probe with a temperature measurement range of -200C to +200C for applications that require monitoring at extreme temperatures.

• T301Ex -Intended for use on oil and gas rigs, and in petrochemical refineries and chemical plants, where certification is required for hazardous or volatile environments.

The T301Ex can be used for asset tracking and status notifications, as well as supporting employee safety applications for reporting the location of personnel in accident or disaster situations.
