Part of the Orion™ RTLS ecosystem, the purpose of the Location Telemetry (LTx) Module is to provide an additional real-time location feature and to transmit worker data (worker information, gamma radiological data and setpoints) to WRM Telemetry Systems. The LTx module is also backward compatible with WRM2™ Telemetry system and can be used as an enhanced telemetry module with capabilities for location tracking.
Orion RTLS enhances the established technology of the DMC 3000 dosimeter when fitted with an LTx module. The LTx module supports the transmission of WRM radiological information and location coordinates, tracking the wearer’s location. The dosimeter, with the LTx module, communicates dose rate and location data with Orion Studio Software to facilitate real-time visualization.
The Orion Real-Time Location System, or RTLS, helps support Critical Path activities by tracking people and the primary assets required for these tasks. It reduces radiation exposure by providing better tracking of personnel and dose rates. It supports better ALARA planning by providing accurate time and motion information along with dose, rate, and location status of workers.
Although the LTx module has been specifically designed as the most advanced addition to the Mirion Telemetry family, it features seamless communication with all existing WRM telemetry receivers for telemetry-only functionality.
