The LF Beacon is a supervised 125KHz
field emitter. The device is used for adding real-time location
visibility detection to Elpas RTLS Security, Safety & Visibility
Solutions or 3rd party management systems.
The LF Beacon is easily surface-mounted
on solid walls and ceilings or flush-mounted into dropped (false)
ceilings. The beacon emits a continuous, user-adjustable,
spherical-shaped electromagnetic field up to 3m/10ft in radius that
can be used to cover indoor doorways or entrance/exit areas.
Optionally the LF Beacon can be deployed in a primary–secondary
configuration suitable for coverage of open indoor spaces,
double-doors or indoor lobby areas.
Should an individual or asset bearing an
Elpas Active RFID Tag enter the exciter’s electromagnetic field; the
tag is prompted to transmit a message indicating its presence at
this location. The messages are received by nearby Elpas RF IP/BUS
Readers or by Elpas Local Controllers and can either be locally
processed or relayed over wired or wireless Ethernet/Wi-Fi networks
to a RTLS host application such as Eiris Tracking & Management
Software for triggering location alerts or for identifying the tag’s
precise location and status.
The LF Beacon also includes an onboard
UHF (433.92 MHz) transmitter, which continuously broadcasts
real-time device supervision alert messages for keeping repair
personnel informed of possible maintenance issues related to the
