Board/B is a rugged industrial Bluetooth Low Energy proximity-beacon with external DC voltage supply. It simultaneously supports multiple
technologies: iBeacon, Eddystone (full support, with GATT and EID), Quuppa (emulation mode).
Board/B is designed to operate in extreme operating conditions (rugged weatherproof IP67/NEMA6 enclosure, wide temperature range) and is conceived for use in light and heavy industry.
It is powered by external DC voltage up to 30V, compatible with main industrial automation systems.
Thanks to internal GPIOs, it is possible to provided it with custom firmware for sensors/actuators management.
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 60 secs
TX power (independently configurable for each slot): -40 dBm, -30 dBm, -20dBm to 4 dBm (with 4dB steps).
Additional configuration options: non-connectable mode, anonymous mode, programmable time period, locked/unlocked mode, change password

iBeacon technology creates a small area of detection for Bluetooth 4.0 enabled mobile devices. Bluetooth LE devices use iBeacon licensed technology, and have been certified by BlueUp to meet
Apple Proximity Beacon Specifications
Eddystone is a protocol specification that defines Bluetooth LE formats for proximity beacon advertising, with different frame types that may be used
individually or in combinations. The BlueUp beacons have been certified by Google in accordance with the requirements of the Eddystone specifications.
