REALTIME LOCATION SYSTEM
The Kathrein Solutions real-time localization system "K-RTLS" combines high localization accuracy in an industrial environment with unique technical features that enable broad use in a wide variety of applications. Precise monitoring of manufacturing progress in a production environment or a transparent material flow in intralogistics are just two of many possible applications. The real-time data available with RTLS on the location and status of objects form the basis for networking processes in the value chain.
For more in-depth information, see our RTLS guide.

KATHREIN RTLS INTEGRATION AND COMMISSIONING
Kathrein Solutions has gone the extra mile. Depending on the requirements, the system can be integrated directly via an API driver interface or via the powerful CrossTalk RTLS infrastructure. The software algorithms required for positioning are integrated in the hardware and always provide the same precise location of objects, regardless of the respective integration strategies.
- Demonstration Software
- Commissioning without previous knowledge
- Extremely simple configuration
- Test and configuration software
- Extensive configuration options
- Access to all system parameters
- API programming interface for fast and individual integration of the system into higher-level IT infrastructures
CrossTalk RTLS Infrastructure
- Comprehensive Device Management with Event Forwading
- Configuration & Health Monitoring
- Location editor with freely configurable GeoFencing zones
- Easy integration into existing software & back end systems
3 technologies in one tracking system
The unique combination of UWB, RFID UHF and NFC opens up innovative project opportunities for Kathrein:
Digitization requires the best possible, future-oriented concepts and that across technologies. KATHREIN networks 3 technologies in the K-RTLS and thus offers an incomparable tracking system with the widest range of applications. Furthermore, the K-RTLS offers unparalleled investment protection through the possibility of using existing infrastructure such as existing RFID gates or the use of already existing NFC-enabled mobile devices.
3 locating modes for the perfect precision, UWB also for outdoor use
Localization applications always focus on two parameters. The localization accuracy and frequency. There are applications that require precise position detection. In this case, the end position of a movement is detected with high accuracy. This is mainly used for movements in the warehouse or in production. The alternative is a permanent acquisition of the travel distance, with somewhat less accurate intermediate values, but which allows a fast evaluation of the travel distance or the travel area (heat map). This mode is mainly used when switching between certain detection areas, e.g. for movements from production to the warehouse. Since these two modes may not be used outdoors in all countries, Kathrein has introduced the Angle of Arrival mode for this application. All three modes are supported by the K-RTLS solution from Kathrein Solutions.
