Ubisense Releases New Version of AngleID Reader
Ubisense has released an updated version of its zone-tracking product, AngleID, with new features, including the ability to network multiple readers. With AngleID v1.1, the company reports, a Ubisense customer can cover an entire building and create more sophisticated zones.
First launched in May 2016, AngleID is a product that sits between passive RFID proximity tracking and real-time location system (RTLS) exact location tracking, and is designed to offer real-time precision zone tracking (see Ubisense Introduces AngleID to Provide Low-Cost, Real-Time Zone Location). The AngleID works with Ubisense's Dimension4 active ultra-wideband (UWB) RFID tags, which operate in the 6 to 8 GHz frequency band can be read from as far away as 150 feet.
Multiple AngleID v1.1 readers can be networked together, and any three can work together to define a zone, thereby enabling a more flexible definition of target zones, according to Ubisense. AngleID v1.1 also offers a more robust operation in environments in which obstructions might prevent consistent object detection by a single reader, the company notes.
Unisense offers three different models of the AngleID v1.1 reader, with different IP ratings and sizes. An IP30-rated version measures 21.5 centimeters by 15 centimeters by 5 centimeters (8.5 inches by 5.9 inches by 2.0 inches) and weighs 720 grams (25.4 ounces). An IP54-rated version measures 21.5 centimeters by 15 centimeters by 9 centimeters (8.5 inches by 5.9 inches by 3.5 inches) and weighs 864 grams (30.5 ounces), while an IP69-rated version measures 21.5 centimeters by 15 centimeters by 8.5 centimeters (8.5 inches by 5.9 inches by 3.3 inches) and weighs 1014 grams (35.8 ounces).
