Elpas Handheld LF Beacon

The Elpas Handheld LF Beacon provides healthcare personnel with an effective, easy-to-use tool for performing ad-hoc patient/asset match and association tests, canceling nurse/patient-calls or for triggering entrance or exit monitoring applications.

The Handheld LF Beacon emits a harmless, low power; sphere shaped magnetic (125KHz) field whenever its large oversized button is engaged. Thus whenever a staff member pushes the beaconís button within a 0 - 30cm (0.0 to 11.8 inches)* radius of a patient/asset bearing an Elpas Active RFID Tag, the beacon will trigger the mobile tag to immediately transmit data messages. The data is instantly detected, interpreted and relayed by the legacy Elpas RF reader infrastructure to the host computer in support of the configured medical application.

Worn as a neck lanyard, the Handheld LF Beacon is enclosed in a shower proof, IP-64 water-rated black ABS outer housing. Powered by a single commercially available lithium battery (CR-2430 or equivalent), the device provides approximately three years of service before needing replacement. The beacon is shipped with pre-attached neck lanyard and one lithium battery.
