The RADius 700X transponder is a part of the short-distance relative positioning system RADius, developed for use in applications where the need for a robust and highly accurate relative positioning system is crucial. RADius 700X is suitable for large installations like offshore platforms, FPSOs and similar where DP operated vessels typically will approach the installation, and where ATEX certification is required.

The RADius 700X transponder is an intrinsically ATEX safe product (category 2) suitable to be installed in hazardous locations where there may be an explosive mixture of flammable gases belonging to gas groups IIB and/or IIA. The transponder can be used in hazardous zones 1 and 2. IECEx classification is Ex ib IIB T4 Gb.

The RADius 700X is powered from an intrinsically safe encapsulated battery with an integral current limiting resistor and has no wired connection to external equipment.

The transponders are coded with unique IDs ensuring reliable identification and tracking of vessels in demanding environments. Several interrogators can approach the same transponders, ensuring multi-user capabilities. Up to five transponders can be tracked simultaneously by the interrogator. The transponder is suited with dip switches for easy setting of the transponder ID.
