xSpan joins Impinj’s existing xArray gateway in providing both item identity and location along a path. It includes the following features:
• Real-time Monitoring: A single xSpan provides continuous item visibility in a coverage area up to 1,000 square feet. Multiple xSpans combined with other Impinj connectivity devices can cover larger areas.
• Transition Detection: Able to track items as they move along a path, xSpan can help companies understand when items are entering or exiting areas, or transitioning between zones.
• Simple Deployment: xSpan is power-over-Ethernet (PoE), low-profile and lightweight, making it versatile and easy to install on both ceilings and walls.
“Businesses that need to monitor items transitioning from one space to another, or determine item location along a path, will find the Impinj xSpan well-suited to their requirements,” said Craig Cotton, VP of marketing and product management.
