A single Pozyx anchor with USB power adaptor. Can be used to support TWR positioning in the Creator series.

Overview

The Pozyx anchor is meant as a reference unit in the Creator series. It can support two-way-ranging (TWR) based positioning. For 3D positioning, at least 4 anchors are required. The anchors are powered through USB or a barrel jack connector. The anchor can be reprogrammed to behave as a tag. The anchor does not need an Arduino to work.

  • Works as an anchor for the Creator series
  • Can be reprogrammed to work as a tag
  • On-board ultra-wideband transceiver
  • On-board pressure sensor
  • IP20 casing
  • Operating voltage 3.3 V
  • Connection with Arduino on I2C
  • Micro USB for updating the Pozyx firmware or used as virtual COM port

On board interfaces


  • I2C. Communication with the Pozyx anchor means of I2C (SCL and SDA pin) and two optional interrupt pins (pins 2 or 3).
  • Micro USB. The micro USB can be used for two purposes: Firstly, for updating the Pozyx firmware in case new features are provided by us. Secondly, it can be used to connect (and power) the anchor to a computer.
