WiSeMote™ Asset Tags

Asset Tags

The WM6 WiSeMote® asset tag, a part of Redpine's RTLS system offering, is a locationing device that enables the tracking of the location of an asset through any of multiple connectivity technologies including dual-band Wi-Fi®, BLE, Low Frequency, and Infrared. It can operate in multiple modes - Cisco CCX in conjunction with Cisco infrastructure, standard Wi-Fi setup with other locationing infrastructure, or any third-party Wi-Fi setup with the WiSeMote locationing solution.

The WM6 tag is suitable for tracking a variety of devices and equipment with multiple methods of attachment and includes tamper sensing, motion detection, multi-colour LEDs, and two-way communication options. The tag also provides information to the system on battery life, emergency button press, motion detection, chokepoint excitation, and other events. The WM6 tag supports both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi - making it ideal for new installations where all mission critical communication is carried out exclusively in the 5 GHz band.

The WM6 tag works with Redpine's unique Wi-Fi based Chokepoint Exciter while also being compatible with legacy low frequency based excitation. Its built-in BLE mode enables proximity sensing of assets with a companion mobile phone app, and it provides for room-level accuracy options with supporting infrared infrastructure. The tag uses a replaceable battery with a life of over two years based on the mode of operation.

The WM6 tag is compliant for intrinsically safe operation in zone 0 environments -the most stringent in terms of requirements for operation in hazardous zones.
