Huntsville, AL February 20, 2018 — Today, Q-Track debuts an Indoor Location Evaluation Kit that can track two tags to 40cm accuracy throughout a 5000 square foot area for only $3495. This price breakthrough lets Q-Track’s NFER® Real-Time Location System (RTLS) Indoor Location technology solve more problems for more people than ever before: optimize workplaces, analyze operations, keep workers safe and secure, and more.
“Q-Track’s new Indoor Location Evaluation Kit provides a low-cost, low-risk way for customers to experience the incredible performance of NFER® Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS),” explains Q-Track CTO, Dr. Hans G. Schantz.
The Evaluation Kit includes four QT-690 Locators, a pre-configured Wi-Fi router, a charging cradle, two rugged, waterproof QT-643 Tag Tracking Devices, and a software license with no recurring fees. Customers supply their own Windows 7 or Windows 10 compatible computer to complete the system. Both a 120 V AC unit for U.S. customers and a 220 V AC unit for export are available.
The long-wavelength, low-frequency, near-field signals of NFER® RTLS achieve remarkably good accuracy, even in a non-line-of-sight configuration: usually about 10 cm accuracy, with average accuracy about 40 cm. This makes NFER® RTLS ideal for complicated industrial applications that confound traditional high-frequency and microwave wireless location systems. No precision surveying is required, so setup is quick and calibration is straightforward.
Q-Track President, Steve Werner, sees many applications. “The system is ideal for tracking people and high-value assets for safety, security, retail, medical, and training applications. Features include geo-fencing with zone notification, real-time location and history trail display, and process analytics, like distance traveled, time in zone, and interaction time. We’re excited to have this opportunity to bring ‘Knowing Where, Anywhere,’ to more customers than ever before.”
Q-Track Corporation (www.Q-Track.com) offers solutions that provide “Knowing Where, Anywhere” for a growing range of industrial real-time location applications. The company’s patented Near-Field Electromagnetic Ranging (NFER®) systems employ a unique low-frequency, long-wavelength radio signal to achieve highly accurate (40 cm rms) indoor location results even in complicated non-line-of-sight environments. NFER® Real Time Location Systems enable “Dosimulation™,” a radiation worker training system deployed in a third of U.S. nuclear plants. Q-Track also offers proximity detection and collision avoidance systems that protect people from cranes, robotic material handling equipment, and forklifts at a variety of manufacturing plants nationwide, as well as location systems that enhance military training by precisely locating soldiers in training ranges extending through multiple buildings and across tens of thousands of square meters (hundreds of thousands of square feet).
Q-Track is a privately-held company located in Huntsville, AL. The company’s research and development was supported by private investors and funding from the Department of Homeland Security, the National Science Foundation, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, and the National Institutes for Health.
