Elite-ID Data Wands (Classic Wands)

Our classic wand systems are used all over Australia, every day, by thousands of staff to track their attendances at strategic locations in shopping centers, on security patrols, in industrial facilities, tracking couriers and many other applications.

These devices are robust, simple to use, reliable and have been proven good performers for many years.

Here at Elite-ID, we designed the XL Data wand in 1998 and then the Voyager Radio wand in 2003. We designed the circuitry, wrote the software and we still manufacture, repair and support them.

Wands are small data loggers; computers with memory, a battery, a clock and other supporting functions. They fit in the palm of your hand and usually have a leather pouch to protect them and can be clipped onto a belt or a pocket.

How Are They Used

The two kinds of wands we make have some overlap in function – and the reporting via Nexus-WebEye is identical with the same reports.

XL-Data Wands

  • Staff touch the wand onto an iButton, a small stainless steel device that the wand reads the serial number from.
  • The serial number, date and time are stored in the wands’ memory.
  • Later the data is extracted using an XL-Unloader, then uploaded to the Nexus-WebEye site in the Cloud.
  • Reports can then be run, manually or automatically.

Radio Wands

  • The Elite-ID RFID points (Pulsars and PipTags) send out signals that Radio Wands read. These signals have a serial number which is logged into memory along with the date and time the signal was received.
  • Radio wands will also read an iButton.
  • Later the data is extracted using an XL-Unloader, then uploaded to the Nexus-WebEye site in the Cloud.
  • Reports can then be run, manually or automatically.
