Forte+ Wirepas is an outdoor anchor tag, that can be also used as mobile tag, based on nRF52832 chipset with full support of Wirepas Mesh 2.4GHz features. It includes an accelerometer for motion detection and can host an optional sensor board.
Forte+ Wirepas is mainly designed as asset and monitoring tag.
Forte+ Wirepas 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.
Forte+ Wirepas is powered by one replaceable CR123A lithium battery, with extended operating temperature range.

Wirepas Mesh 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 MeshCube platform
