Anchor UWB

TO CREATE AN INFRASTRUCTURE OF
PRECISE, POWERFUL RTLS LOCATION
AND ONE THAT IS SCALABLE, IN ANY IoT SCENARIO.

GENERAL OVERVIEW

The device is the 3D spatial reference node (with a known position) of the Smart Network and is responsible for receiving information from tags worn by people, or positioned on objects and assets in any operational context.

 

MAIN ADVANTAGES

  • Light and easy to install – The reduced weight, the small dimensions, the long-lasting battery power supply make it easy to install in any context, guaranteeing the reduction of time and costs due to the absence of wiring. The Anchor UWB is generally installed on the perimeter walls of the area that has to be monitored and placed in an elevated position, to cover the maximum extension and avoid any obstacles that could block the signal.
  • Suitable for any scenario – The device is designed to be used indifferently in outdoor environments (IP66 protection degree) and indoor, and does not require further protection, being made of resistant and durable self-extinguishing plastic.

ACCESSORIES

The device can be installed using the fixings available in the catalogue:

  • ANK_S: Anchor fixing kit with bracket
  • ANK_AF: Anchor fixing kit with stainless steel connection for clamp
  • ANK_2F_A300: Kit 2 Stainless steel clamps 4.6 x 300 mm
  • ANK_2F_N500: Kit 2 Clamps nylon black 4.8 x 500 mm

OPERATING PRINCIPLES

COMMUNICATION: SMART NETWORK PROTOCOL

The UWB Anchor communicate with the Filippetti Group’s  Gateways and Routers, through the Smart Network proprietary protocol and the UHF wireless protocol in LoRa/FSK modulation.

LOCALIZATION: UWB

The device generates a radiofrequency signal with a range of about 150 m (in the absence of obstacles), which is converted into spatial distance.

Through the trilateration (with three or more distances detected by as many devices), it is possible to calculate with submetric accuracy (≈ 50 cm) the position of the SaveMENOW  or the PPE equipped with appropriate tags. The data exchanged between the anchors and the mobile tags are sent to the RTLS server to estimate the position.

POWER SUPPLY: by BATTERY

The device is supplied with 4 batteries (each of type D, nominal voltage of 3.6V, from 19 Ah), which guarantee an average life span from 1 (1 tracking per second) to 7 years (1 tracking every 15 seconds).

The product is also available in ATEX certified version for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
