X-RAYL® SOLAR POINTER S3

X-RAYL® SOLAR POINTER S3

The X-Rayl® Solar Pointer S3 can now not only speak IEEE but also Bluetooth 5, has better sensor technology in the field of acceleration measurement and offers the highest transmission frequency that an X-Rayl® Solar Pointer could ever offer.

The Edition “S3” is a new member of the X-Rayl® Solar family. Compared to the predecessor model X-Rayl Solar Pointer “S2”, a new basic technology using components with lower power consumption was used. But the essential is the ability to offer Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Indeed the X-Rayl® Solar Pointer S3 can now not only speak IEEE but also BLE. Furthermore, the sensor technology in the area of acceleration measurement has been improved. Finally, the X-Rayl® Solar Pointer S3 has the highest transmission frequency that an X-Rayl® Solar Pointer could ever offer. Of course at the high ATEX protection level II 2G Ex ib IIC T6 Gb for gas and II 2D Ex ib IIIC T85°C Db for dust.

The X-Rayl® Solar Pointer S3 has all features of the previous series. It has communication via LTE (LTE: Penta-Band 700 (Bd28) / 800 (Bd20) / 900 (Bd8) / 1800 (Bd3) / 21 00 MHz (Bd1)). The Fall Back option on 2G provides security to operate even where no LTE network is available. It is made of aluminium for highest demands.

The X-Rayl® Solar Pointer is mounted on the railway wagons or containers in a few minutes and provides position data and sensor data via GPS in freely selectable intervals. The position of the vehicle is queried via web access to the X-Rayl® DOT-Link platform and displayed e.g. as a map view. Additional data such as temperature, mileage, load, door opening or historical queries of individual vehicles are also available. By means of geofencing, the customer receives a notification via e-mail or SMS when driving into freely selectable local areas (e.g. loading/unloading stations, border stations, etc.).

The Pointer S3 can receive three GNSS systems (GPS, Galileo, Glonass) simultaneously, has an increased power reserve and is therefore unsurpassed in positioning precision. In addition, the X-Rayl® Solar Pointer S3 can take detailed pictures of the vibrations on the vehicles with a resolution of up to 1000 data points per second in three axes. This allows anomalies such as flat spots or other damage to the vehicle to be detected. A specially developed tilt sensor sounds an alarm as soon as the pointer is in an unusual position.

Thanks to their solar operation, X-Rayl® Devices arecompletely maintenance-free and has been used by freight forwarders, transport companies and industry throughout Europe since 2003.
