BEACONS


NEW GENERATION with nRF52832

BlueBeacon Tag

BlueBeacon Tag is a keyfob-like battery-powered Bluetooth Low Energy beacon. With second-generation hardware based on nRF52832 SoC, energy consumption has been improved. It simultaneously supports multiple technologies: iBeacon, Eddystone (full support, with GATT and EID), Quuppa (emulation mode). It also supports the new Safety packet.
BlueBeacon Tag can be used as an identification badge for personnel or assets. By using the internal accelerometer, it can be configured to automatically enter into low-power mode for battery savings.
BlueBeacon Tag uses a couple of CR2032 coin batteries that are easily replaceable by simply removing the snap-fit cover.


Small size

Tiny and light-weight enclosure: the most flexible solution for identification


Wearable

Simply attach it to your keys, lanyards for badges, objects, assets, and track them


Radio performances

nRF52832 SoC and optimized antenna, for best on the market RF and energy performances


Fully configurable

Beacon can be configured, with a secure AES-128 ECB encrypted-password access

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 Mini is certified from Google for full support for Eddystone specifications.

BlueBeacon Tag is compatible with Quuppa Intelligent Locating System, a powerful technology platform for novel location based services and applications. It enables real-time tracking of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) smart tags and devices, with accuracy even down to a few centimeters.
