Anchor is a reference device with a known position. Set of Anchors creates location infrastructure where Tags are being located with sub-meter accuracy. The primary goal of the device is to gather radio signals from mobile locators called Tags and forward them to RTLS Studio where the position is being estimated.

Moreover, Anchors can also receive data from sensors equipped within the Tag such as acceleration, orientation, button event or custom data payload. Data are further exposed to the user via open API.

Anchor is an IP network device equipped with an Ethernet/Wi-Fi interface for both data backhaul and/or power supply. Anchors are configured and managed via RTLS Studio software. They support variety of holders to simplify the installation in any premises. They are mounted above Tags which ensures maximum coverage and minimizes obstacles blocking its communication line.

Always orient the anchors best radiation to the center of the room or the location area.

The anchor’s radiation should be oriented to the spots where tags will be located to ensure maximum signal coverage. The antenna has a different ideal radiation depending on the anchor type, see the figures below.

The rule of thumb is that the Anchor 1.4 has the best antenna radiation on the side where the LED is located.
