Ekahau's Real-Time Location System (RFID-over-Wi-Fi(TM)) supports two new active RFID products: the long-life A4+ asset tag and the W4 patient wristband tag enabling real-time visibility and reporting in Ekahau Vision(TM) software
Ekahau Inc., the high-performance leader in Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) announced today the introduction of two new active RFID tags at MEDICA 2013: the Ekahau A4+ long-life asset tag and the Ekahau W4 patient wristband tag enabling location tracking, reporting and mapping in Ekahau Vision(TM) software. MEDICA, the world's largest medical trade fair, is based in Dusseldorf, Germany from November 20(th) to November 23(rd), 2013.
Ekahau's new A4+ asset tags are affixed to high-value equipment, enabling end users to quickly search for and locate equipment on web-based maps. Ekahau A4+ asset tags send text alerts to third-party devices, email and Ekahau badge tags if equipment leaves designated zones, reducing the likelihood of theft and accidental removal. The Ekahau A4+ tag also features a 5V USB charger and optional external battery pack port which extends tag life indefinitely, beyond conventional asset tags that rely solely on battery replacement. In addition, the Ekahau Vision(TM) business intelligence software reports equipment dwell times and par levels to help hospital administrators isolate workflow bottlenecks and improve decision-making.
Patients wearing Ekahau's new W4 wristband tags are tracked in Ekahau Vision(TM) software which offers bed-level location accuracy. Ekahau's W4 tags feature a watch-like design, tactile help button and detachable wristbands that simplify tag re-charging and cleaning.
To preview the new Ekahau W4 wristband tag and Ekahau A4+ asset tag, visit Ekahau at Booth#15D15 during MEDICA 2013.
