Apprion's ION Location and IONite Tags for Safety and Operational Excellence Solutions
Apprion, the leader in industrial wireless application networks, announced the release of the ION Location Application, IONite Personnel Tag and IONiteTM Asset Tag. ION Location enables a suite of applications to address security, safety and environmental regulations and improve overall safety, productivity, asset utilization and performance. ION Location supports leading real-time locating technology systems including Wi-Fi, passive or active RFID, UWB, and satellite in a single, comprehensive network. The location information from all of these systems is displayed on a single dashboard with integrated CAD drawings, maps, and satellite photographs of a site to visually navigate the entire facility from a desktop while tracking the location and condition of people and key assets from a highly accurate spatial and visual perspective.
ION Location provides one unified view for simplicity, organization and visibility into all the information, activities and details of a facility’s complex network systems. This unified view gives your workforce one record with many views for better accountability, less complexity, and more impactful information. Key features include:
- Asset Tracking - IONite Asset Tags are attached to mobile assets and tracked with the ION Location software to provide real-time location and status of all tagged facility assets for better asset utilization.
- Personnel Tracking - ION Location’s customizable dashboard tracks and monitors employees and contractors via a map-based graphical interface that can be integrated with satellite images of the facility. Knowing where personnel are at all times and their status is critical for safety and security.
- Site Access Control - ION Location uses a unique user ID stored on the IONite Personnel Tag to track all personnel entering and exiting sensitive areas, vehicle gates or main entry and exit points for increased security.
IONite Asset Tags and IONite Personnel Tags are multi-radio RTLS tags that combine passive and active technologies and provide accurate location information in the ION Location Application. IONite Tags are engineered to exceed industrial regulatory and unique environmental requirements and include flexible industrial-appropriate power-source options such as long-life and rechargeable battery, and line power. Plus, IONite Tags provide more than just location information. IONite Asset Tags provide temperature data and IONite Personnel Tags track human biometrics such as heart rate and respiration.
ION Location is integrated with the Apprion IONosphere as part of Apprion's ION System. This integration allows real-time location to be combined with other ION applications such as ION Video, System Health Monitoring, Mobility, and Communications to create an intelligent operations network.
