Quuppa Forte+ is our next-generation outdoor beacon, based on nRF52832 chipset with full support of Quuppa software features (Quuppa Compatible - certification pending). It includes an accelerometer for motion detection and can host an optional sensor board. Forte+ is mainly designed as asset and monitoring tag.
Quuppa Forte+ is available in two versions: STD: standard version; HVL: transparent lid and high-visibility led, for easy identification and pick-to-light applications.
Both versions will be available in enclosure with or without flanges, and in optional IP67 version.
Quuppa Forte+ is powered by one replaceable CR123A lithium battery, with extended operating temperature range.
