Actility and INDUTRAX partner up for distribution of LoRaWAN tracking solutions in Germany

Press Release, Paris & Hilden, January 19, 2021

Actility is welcoming a new Partner – INDUTRAX, a company based in Hilden, Germany, providing Location Aware Software combining technologies for location, identification and sensing physical & chemical properties with applications for logistics and production control, using industry standards. INDUTRAX is now integrating Abeeway’s tracking devices with LoRaWAN® connectivity in order to enable efficient indoor and outdoor location tracking implementations. 

With INDUTRAX’s innovative software applications, they form a bridge between technologies for location, identification, sensing, and enterprise applications. They use their experience to deliver best practice solutions and provide ongoing support to their customer’s operations. Now their solution is combined patented geolocation technologies with ultra-low power consumption created by Abeeway, a subsidiary of Actility, a world leader of industrial Low-Power Wide Area Networks for the Internet of Things. 
The integration of Abeeway tracking devices extends the INDUTRAX product portfolio to include reliable wide-area solutions based on LoRaWAN. The devices combine GPS with energy-efficient LoRaWAN communication to allow accurate and energy-efficient tracking, typically in outdoor environments. As a result, the INDUTRAX Application Environment can support even more use cases and meets the increased demand for outdoor positioning solutions. 
Indeed, INDUTRAX is living up to their motto “We are location” by focusing on solutions in manufacturing and logistics where the capturing of events from movements plays a major role. This differentiates their solutions from conventional Industry 4.0 approaches, which are mostly concerned with the management of stationary machines, devices and detectors. The processes taking place on the shop floor are mapped to the digital image of the factory in real-time, enabling paperless solutions in the sense of Industry 4.0. Various functional components are available for simple and agile implementation of applications for the digitization of processes and workflows. 

INDUTRAX’s applications support a wide range of use cases, including: 

  • Finding products and assets
  • Monitoring the use of assets and tools
  • Locating and identifying work-in-progress in production areas
  • Tracking process flows of the work-in-progress in production areas
  • Monitoring of industrial trucks
  • Finding carriers, racks, and jigs
  • Automatic inventory of materials

Leveraging LoRaWAN’s long range and low power capabilities, Abeeway allows you to efficiently locate assets and to ensure people’s safety. The devices perfectly work both outdoors and indoors thanks to their multi-technology geolocation system, and they offer the best autonomy on the market due to extremely low power consumption, allowing continuous use of the devices during years without having to worry about their maintenance. The smart Abeeway trackers are not only precise and resistant, but also durable and low-cost. Moreover, Actility offers the most powerful enterprise IoT connectivity solution: ThingPark Enterprise. The ThingPark Location platform transforms the location data into actionable information. Then using a unique APIs set, the location data can be easily integrated with third-party business applications.
