Selecting the right hardware will serve as the foundation for an effective location system. Organizations invest a lot in protecting their assets and refining processes, therefore it’s important to have technology you can trust. When it comes to gathering advanced data, no brand is more trusted than Zebra. Many industries, including retail, healthcare, manufacturing, and logistics have implemented Zebra location hardware to gather data. Most notably, their location tags and readers are used in the NFL to produce next-gen statistics by tracking precise player movements. Zebra location hardware can also be used to pinpoint assets in a single facility or provide a bird’s eye view of material flows throughout an entire organization. Due to the performance of Zebra location hardware, businesses can access robust data they never had access to before. This data can then be used to develop prescriptive analytics and forecasts surrounding the movements of assets and materials.

Zebra’s Line of Location HardwareMB6000

Zebra’s most encompassing location technology is the ATR RTLS reader. The ATR allows businesses to have total visibility of assets and materials over long ranges. In addition to the ATR, Zebra’s portfolio also contains different readers and tags fall including Ultra-Wideband (UWB), WhereNet, and Zebra Bluetooth. These devices all differ in regard to range, accuracy, precision, and cost.

Complete Visibility with ATR

Zebra’s ATR 7000 readers allow organizations to have real-time visibility and the ability to track and pinpoint their assets. When it comes to applications involving valuable moving assets that need frequent updates, the ATR 7000 is the technology for the job.

Achieve High Precision and Accuracy with UWB

Ultrawideband technology is for indoor or outdoor applications that require frequent updates for real-time data. As a result, UWB RTLS solutions help create asset visibility throughout the entire organization. Common applications for UWB technology include personnel and equipment tracking. UWB technology is also beneficial for organizations looking for a solution with easy installation.

Long Range Reading with Zebra WhereNet

Zebra’s WhereNet line excels at capturing reads over long distances. Single readers can gather location data within a range of over a mile. Furthermore, WhereNet excels in tricky environments, such as those with high metal content that can disrupt signals. Its ability to capture precise data in complex environments makes WhereNet a perfect solution for yard management applications.

Versatile Locationing with Zebra Bluetooth

Bluetooth location technology can be very broad due to the different costs and forms this technology comes in. From using it for sending push notifications to consumer devices to using it for asset tracking, Zebra Bluetooth beacons and bridges have a wide array of applications. Bluetooth can serve as a cost-effective and easily deployable location solution and, similar to Zebra WhereNet, they can be used effectively in dense industrial environments.
