Recently, Zebra Technologies (News - Alert) introduced a new product named WhereTag IV-ST, which adds extra features to the company’s WhereNet family of products. These additional features include a serial telemetry interface and a choice of external antenna, which can be used by the terminal operators.

Terminal operators can apply these features to know the status of powered terminal assets and container handling equipments.

The WhereTag asset tags allow the real-time locating system (RTLS) precision tracking required to access accurate, up-to-the-second data on the location and status of assets.

WhereTags are completely sealed for a RTLS application and have the ability to tolerate tough indoor and outdoor environments. The service is part of the Zebra WhereNet family of products.

These new products enable companies to save time and money. It also allows them to make better use of available human resources.

The product provides complete visibility by bringing together the open standard of ISO/IEC (News - Alert) 24730-2 with IEEE 802.11 Wi-Fi. It also facilitates enhanced efficiency and increased productivity by offering real-time location information to terminal operating systems.

“Our maritime solutions deliver critical information to maximize port operation efficiency and productivity," said Stephen Logue, vice president, Zebra Location Solutions. "Together with our partners, we provide fully integrated RTLS solutions for precise tracking and access to accurate, real-time information on the location and status of assets.”

Recently, the company unveiled GC420 4-Inch desktop printers to serve its customers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, EMEA region. With the help of these compact printers, companies of all sizes can see more and do more by facilitating track-and-trace features for various applications. These new printers are said to provide improved value performance depending on customer-proven mechanical design.
