Pozyx RTLS Triggers slash integration efforts and generate events that translate into smart manufacturing actions and warnings
Ghent, Belgium – November 23, 2021 - Pozyx, a leading provider of the most accurate indoor RTLS (real-time location system) based on UWB (ultra-wideband) technology, today announced the Trigger functionality in its 2021.3 product release. Triggers generate events that launch whenever a condition (based on the location awareness of assets) is fulfilled and convert these into automatically generated actions such as alerts, notifications, or status updates.
The Pozyx RTLS generates xyz data streams, which contain vast amounts of data. Triggers funnel and narrow down the data influx to create a limited set of location data that are business-relevant and translate into events. The Triggers are launched from geo-location conditions of RTLS tracked assets, such as when a tagged asset enters, exits or remains in a specific fence (digitally geo-fenced area). The generated events can be defined as alerts (push messages, emails, warning lights), as actions (emergency stop, shut down of equipment) or as creation of support or intervention tickets. The Trigger mechanism is fully configurable and can be integrated in a flexible way. Within an industrial context, triggers can easily interact with PLCs and existing manufacturing environments, at SCADA level or in MES and ERP systems. The Trigger feature reduces the effort of manual programming and simplifies the implementation of value stream mapping, safety policies, quality validations and efficiency checks.
