Wirepas Card

Wirepas Card is a badge-like battery-powered Bluetooth Low Energy beacon, based on new-generation BLE chip Nordic nRF52832, with full support of Wirepas Mesh features.
Thanks to its ultra-slim form-factor, Wirepas Card can be worn as an identification badge for personnel or hung on racks or products. By using the internal accelerometer, it can be configured to automatically enter into low-power mode for battery savings. A button and two leds allows for a richer user interface.
Wirepas Card is waterproof and powered by a thin non-replaceable lithium battery that guarantees a long operating life. Additionally, it can integrate an optional NFC NTAG2 tag.

BlueBeacon Wirepas Card supports Wirepas Mesh protocol. The Wirepas Mesh protocol is a wireless network protocol that uses a multi-hop, self-organizing, and decentralized design. Decentralized network topology enables extremely dense network deployment. Wirepas Mesh protocol is used for indoor localization solutions with cable-less infrastructure: all devices (mobile tags and anchors) are battery operated.
