We have great news for you from product development: recent product updates have improved the battery life of the Eliko RTLS tags significantly. Moreover, the power consumption of the tag is now one of the lowest on the market compared to similar systems.
Eliko’s RTLS tag battery can now last up to six months
To go into more detail, new features and updates have improved the battery’s charging cycle notably. First and foremost, we have added dynamic ranging features to the tag. In addition, we have optimised the tag’s power consumption. As a result, the tag’s battery life has improved by up to three times depending on the positioning frequency.
Here are some current battery life examples:
- update rate per second – 4 weeks;
- update rate per minute – 6 months.
The RTLS tags are small but powerful
As you know, all RTLS solutions require a tag to attach it to the object you would like to track. These tags communicate with the RTLS anchor network to calculate the precise position of the objects in real time.
Main characteristics of Eliko RTLS 2.0 tag:
- light and compact with a size of 63x42x13 mm;
- enables you to position objects to within an accuracy of 5-30 cm;
- has an operational distance of up to 70 metres from anchors;
- enables you to position objects from once per minute to up to 300 times per second;
- has a Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery, which can now last up to six months on one charge;
- comes with multiple attachement options.
Set update rates for sleep and active modes separately
Our indoor location system Eliko RTLS 2.0 enables you to set an update rate (positioning frequency) for the tags based on your needs. You can modify the update rate using the Eliko RTLS Manager or API commands. The recently added dynamic ranging option means that you can set update rate for sleep and active modes separately. Adding another update rate for idle mode will help you extend the battery life of the tag.
Suitable for large-scale settings
Eliko RTLS uses the time-of-flight (ToF) positioning method on Ultra-Wideband (UWB) radio technology to consistently provide reliable and precise location measurements. Although ToF is known to be more power consuming than time-difference-of-arrival (TdoA), it is also a much more robust technique.
We are confident that these improvements have made the Eliko RTLS 2.0 tag’s power consumption one of the lowest among similar systems on the market that use the robust ToF positioning method. Therefore, you will benefit from using Eliko RTLS in large-scale industrial settings where you need reliable and consistent accuracy. As large-scale use cases often require more tags, less frequent recharging provides more convenience.
