Enhanced Monitoring and Tracking through Immediate Chokepoint Detection as well as Accurate Room and Bay/Bed Resolution
Exciters are an optional component of AeroScout’s complete visibility solution. When AeroScout tags pass through a chokepoint or enter a specific room or bed/bay area, Exciters trigger the tags to transmit a message that is received by standard Wi-Fi infrastructure. This provides instant and accurate knowledge that a tagged asset or person passed through a gate, doorway or entered some other tightly defined area – such as a room or a hospital bed/bay.
Examples of how customers use Exciters include:
The EX2000 Exciter is a low frequency device for use in both indoor and outdoor environments. EX2000 Exciters can reach up to a 6m (20ft) radius programmable range, enough to cover wide gate areas. EX2000 Exciters can be powered via an external power source or PoE. The Exciters have a LAN connection option or can be configured to work without network connectivity.
The EX2000 Exciter is also available in an explosion proof model for hazardous environments for industries such as Oil & Gas, Mining and Chemicals.
The EX3200 Series Exciter is a low frequency device for use in indoor environments. EX3200 Exciters have a compact form factor and can reach up to a 3m (10ft) radius programmable range. EX3200 Exciters can be powered via an external power source or PoE. The Exciters have a LAN connection option or can be configured to work without network connectivity.
The AeroScout Wi-Fi Ultrasound solution is designed specifically for asset, patient and staff tracking in healthcare environments. By combining Wi-Fi RFID for hospital-wide visibility with ultrasound for room-level separation where needed, AeroScout provides the most cost effective and comprehensive solution for healthcare organizations. The solution is ideal for applications such as Patient Flow and Nurse Call.
Ultrasound Exciters mounted in rooms transmit ultrasound signals, which do not pass through walls. AeroScout Wi-Fi Tags with embedded ultrasound receivers receive the signals and subsequently transmit messages (including the room where the tag is located) via the Wi-Fi network. When tags are not in proximity of Ultrasound Exciters, they continue to transmit Wi-Fi signals, which enable location determination anywhere in a hospital or facility.
