BlueBeacon SafeX is a wearable battery-powered Bluetooth Low Energy beacon based on nRF52832 SoC. It simultaneously supports multiple
technologies: iBeacon, Eddystone (full support, with GATT and EID), Quuppa (emulation mode). It also supports the new Safety packet.
BlueBeacon SafeX is designed for industrial and safety applications: robust case, replaceable long-life coin CR2477 battery, alarm button, 2 LEDs, buzzer, vibration motor.
It is provided in 2 alternative versions: Standard: waterproof IP65 enclosure, with tre wearability options: SafeClip (clip for belt/pocket), SafeCord (eyelet for lanyard), SafeBand (silicone wrist-strap); Lite: with eyelet for lanyard or badge-clip.
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 BLE 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.
