BlueBeacon TagX a battery-powered Bluetooth Low Energy asset tag based on powerful nRF52832 SoC. It simultaneously supports multiple
technologies: iBeacon, Eddystone (full support, with GATT and EID), Quuppa (emulation mode), Safety and Sensor packets (BlueUp proprietary).
BlueBeacon TagX is designed as asset tag for identification and tracking in logistics, healthcare, building management.
It is powered by a replaceable long-life CR2477 coin battery, and it includes accelerometer for motion, shock and free-fall detection and 2 LEDs for signaling.
The compact robust enclosure (IP65 as optional) has two flanges that allow maximum installation flexibility.
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/shock/free-fall 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 Bluetooth LE 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.
