Apprion’s ION System is a comprehensive industrial wireless application networking system. The ION System provides an open, integrated, secure and scalable system for monitoring, managing, and securing multi-vendor wireless devices and applications.
ION’s current version, ION R4, provides comprehensive integration and cohesive management of facilities’ wireless infrastructures, including multiple industry-leading wireless devices, wireless data from all devices on the network and all wireless applications.
Apprion’s IONizer Connect provides interfacing and backhauling data from legacy sensors and real-time communication between critical data points in the network. IONizer Connect is a Class I Div 2 industrial rated device with various radio options such as 802.11, WiMAX, and 900MHz for backhaul and can connect to 4-20mA, Modbus, Foundation Fieldbus and other wired sensor connections. As a streamlined device for connecting stranded data points, its unique price point is significantly lower than less suitable industrial gateways and access points.
Apprion IONizers provide an expandable software and hardware platform that goes beyond the standard functionality of network access points and routers. IONizer Connect provides a wireless connection to Apprion’s information management platform, IONosphere, giving seamless network integration for all data and applications in the network. Apprion’s ION System streams real-time intelligence from multiple applications and devices into a common dashboard view for plant operators in industrial process manufacturing industries.
Combined with the ION Location Application Service, the IONite Personnel Tag provides accurate location using a standard 802.11 infrastructure. Its small form factor and light weight make it ideal for personnel to wear on a neck-strap or clipped or strapped to clothing. The tag is intrinsically safe and designed for hazardous environments. The IONite Personnel Tag also contains a passive EPC Gen 2 RFID tag, which can be used for various tracking purposes. A common use is in Access Control Applications. The IONite Personnel Tag can function as a proximity tag which can be used to identify individuals who are authorized to gain access through various entry points or to provide a secondary identification. The combination of Wi-Fi tag and RFID tag provides very accurate positioning.
The first ever industrial wireless network appliance, Apprion IONizers provide an expandable software and hardware platform that goes beyond the standard functionality of network access points and routers.
Combined with the ION Location Application Service, the tag provides accurate location using standard 802.11 infrastructures. The IONite Asset Tag attaches to equipment using optional tie-wraps or Velcro. Its small form factor and light weight allow easy mounting on small or uncommonly shaped objects. The dust and splash proof enclosure with rubber sealing allows the tag to be used in Class 1 Division 2 environments.Download Datasheet
Industrial network platform that manages data services, workflow, security, monitoring and maintenance, and 3rd party application integration across wireless plant networks. IONosphere enables an intelligent wireless infrastructure and centralized management of multi-vendor wireless devices to ensure that wireless applications throughout a process manufacturing plant perform reliably and cost-effectively. The IONosphere dashboard provides an integrated view of all data essential for wireless network management in a central location.
The ION Mustering Tower is the first ever wireless, solar powered mustering tower designed specifically for industrial facilities and the safety of all plant personnel. It uses a visual strobe light for mustering notification during emergencies, ensuring that it will be seen by personnel. Once employees arrive in the mustering area they can automatically check in via a wireless badge scan and the tower’s WiFi reader immediately updates the system that the employee is safe. This automated wireless system and efficient backhaul reader eliminates manual processes and provides real-time mustering and personnel safety location during critical emergency situations. A part of the ION Location Application family, Apprion’s ION Mustering Application provides real-time information and communication about the status of employees and contractors, enabling plants to locate personnel in real-time and providing efficient communication that can save lives and keep facilities’ most valuable asset – their personnel – safe. The ION Mustering Application leverages real-time personnel tracking via Wi-Fi, GPS, or RFID Tags and provides visual confirmation of the safety of every individual within a facility in the integrated ION Dashboard. The addition of the ION Mustering Tower adds one more level of personnel safety.
