Pointer™

 

Precise, Weatherproof, Simple, BLE Checkpoint

The Pointer™ is a BLE checkpoint that sends a precisely controlled low frequency signal that a Shepherd™ Tag detects as soon as it crosses a Pointer™ threshold. It can be plugged in to standard power, or utilize its onboard battery system for application where AC outlets are not available.

Radio waves go where they want to go; up, down, left, right, forward, backwards, through walls, floors, ceilings, etc. This is why WiFi works so well and why cell phones in a home's basement connect well to cell towers that may be 5 miles away. This principle of radio wave penetration allows an I-GUIDES® Blue Shepherd™ Tag to reach out in all directions to create a reliable tracking system. With an exceptional internal battery, the Pointer™ can operate all day on a single charge.

To know if an item is inside a particular room or moving through a specific lane or conveyor or workstation, an I-GUIDES® Blue Pointer™ is your best friend! By running a Pointer's wire loop antenna around a monitored area, tag entry and exit threshold locations may be defined to within an inch.
