BlueBeacon Brick is high-end long-life industrial rugged outdoor beacon, based on Bluetooth5-ready nRF52832 chipset with simultaneously supports of iBeacon, Eddystone (full support, with GATT and EID),
Quuppa (emulation mode).
BlueBeacon Brick is perfectly suitable for all installations where protection from environmental factors and long operating life are critical parameters. Typical scenarios are logistics,
outdoor installations, industrial plants, automotive.
BlueBeacon Brick has a rugged IP67/NEMA6 enclosure, includes an accelerometer and is powered by a replaceable lithium thionyl chloride battery pack ER14505 1S2P with more than 5Ah capacity and
extended operating temperature range.
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 Bluetooth LE formats for proximity beacon advertising, with different frame types that may be used
individually or in combinations. BlueBeacon Forte is certified from Google for full support for Eddystone specifications.
