Precise, Weatherproof, Simple, BLE Checkpoint

The Pointer® is a precision instrument that pinpoints asset location and trigger alerts to meet critical timing and location tracking applications.

The Pointer® emits a precisely-controlled, low frequency signal that a Shepherd® Tag detects as soon as it crosses the Pointer's loop threshold. Once detected, the signal is saved to the Shepherd® Tag, relayed to a nearby Retriever® device, and immediately uploaded to the Blue Cloud Manager server. Up to 30 Pointer® crossings are stored within Shepherd® Tags for up to 3 days.

The Pointer® allows for real time and precise location updates through I-GUIDES® Blue Cloud Manager software without reliance upon multiple signals or constantly changing RSSI values.

Pointer® loops may be prefabricated or customized to an application; shape, size and field strength. A loop may cover an area as small as a desk drawer or as large as a multi-lane highway.

  • 1/100th second timestamp accuracy
  • Exceptional battery life - can operate all day on a single charge
