When deployed in concert with IR-enabled tags (and optional A750 Room Locators) the system provides a method of locating tagged assets with rack-level precision. Each Rack Locator transmits an infrared pulse pattern containing a unique 4-digit location code.
The intensity of the IR transmissions can be adjusted to achieve complete coverage for open or closed racks with minimal bleed-over to adjacent racks. IR-enabled tags monitor their environment for incoming IR signals and periodically report both their own unique ID and the applicable IR location code.
Tag transmissions are processed in real-time to quickly locate and identify tagged assets with rack-level accuracy, for open or closed racks
