BlueBeacon Badge-Holder is a wearable battery-powered Bluetooth Low Energy tag, based on new-generation BLE chip Nordic nRF52832, with a badge-holder case able host standard ISO/IEC 7810 cards (magnetic, RFID, NFC).
It simultaneously supports multiple technologies: iBeacon, Eddystone (full support, with GATT and EID), Quuppa (emulation mode). It also supports proprietary Safety packet.
BlueBeacon Badge-Holder is designed for personnel identification and tracking. Push-button and internal accelerometer (for motion, shock and free-fall detection) allows to enable worker-safety functionalities.
BlueBeacon Badge-Holder is waterproof and powered by a thin non-replaceable lithium battery that guarantees a long operating life.
8 slots configurable for non-connectable advertising frames:
- 4 slots, each configurable for Eddystone frame types: UID, URL, TLM or EID.
Full support for specifications Eddystone Configuration GATT Service by Google
- 4 slots, each configurable for the following frame types: iBeacon, Quuppa (Direction Finding packet)
Advertising interval (independently configurable for each slot): 0.1 to 5 secs
TX power (independently configurable for each slot): -40 dBm, -20dBm to 4 dBm (with 4dB steps)
Additional configuration options: non-connectable mode, anonymous mode, programmable time period, orientation/motion-detection mode, locked/unlocked mode, change password
Support for Safety packet: beacon ID, battery status, motion detection, button-press (short/long), man-down detection
Configurable with BlueBeacon Manager App for Android and

iBeacon technology creates a small area of detection for Bluetooth 4.0 enabled mobile devices. BlueBeacon devices uses iBeacon licensed technology, and have been certified by BlueUp to meet
Apple Proximity Beacon Specifications
Eddystone is a protocol specification that defines BLE formats for proximity beacon advertising, with different frame types that may be used
individually or in combinations. BlueBeacon Card is certified from Google for full support for Eddystone specifications.
