A personnel tracking system is a completely integrated tracking solution that can give you real-time information on where your personnel is. There are three components that power the system, namely the Tracking Software, the RFID wearable tags, and the RFID readers. They work together to locate personnel, and you can customise them to address the needs of your specific Business environment. The system can let you know exactly where everyone is with three easy steps, and let you ensure security, safety and, accountability.
- An RFID tag is given to all of the personnel.
- RFID readers are installed at strategic points, such as exits, entrances and area-wide zones, and they read the signals by the RFID tags.
- Each tag transmits data, which is imported into the software. Through the intuitive interface, you can track as well as locate your personnel regardless of where you are.
How do you know if Your Business needs personnel tracking? If you regularly receive visitors and contractors, knowing where all personnel is, especially third parties, can be crucial to the efficiency and safety of your work environment. If your payroll administration is having problems with recording attendance and start/end times, this can also be tracked with the RFID tags. The information is later easily imported into most popular software for payroll administration.
When you integrate RFID into PR events, or corporate conferences and trade shows, an event manager can give you a planning and production strategy that nets measurable results. Any attendee can get a wearable RFID tag such as a wristband or a lanyard, which allows them to easily access the event. And, the event organizers can easily authenticate guests, as well as capture data about attendance. The RFID Tags also broadcast interaction patterns and location as well, and this can give you real-time participant engagement.
You can opt for three choices. A short, medium or long distance Tracking System. They are all made for different purposes. For example, with the short reading range system, there is a low frequency, with 125KHz, as well as a high frequency, on 13.56MHz. The reading distance is 2-6cm, and it is best used for scanning at close proximity, such as for providing access to hazardous areas. The medium range system works at 900MHz, and the reader sends signals and powers on the tags worn by the personnel. The distance is up to 5 meters, and you can use it at choke points, such as entry and exit points of a building. Last but not least, the long reading distance system works on the 433MHz and 2.45GHz bands, and the RFID tags have their own power supply. This lets the range go up to 100 meters, and you can actively track the personnel.
