New BLE Beacon is now available
BluEpyc announces the new BLE Disk Beacon, read by all BluEpyc product range (EchoBeacon & Gateway): optionally available with accelerometer and/or temperature and humidity sensor, the new Disk Beacon guarantees high performances (reading distance up to 200 mt) and is equipped with a button, which plays the role in switching ON/OFF the beacon or, in a specific firmware, in sending a different advertising packet (e.g. emergency alarm, confirmation that an operation has been successfully carried out).
BluEpyc BLE Disk Beacon 2019
Designed with a modular perspective in its functions, the new standard Beacon (IEEE, 802.15.1) can interact with any standard BLE device, as well as with latest generation smart phone; it can be supplied with a visible sticker showing the Beacon ID (Mac Address), its QR code and the Device Name.
The Disk Beacon is housed in a plastic, waterproof box, which can be customized by printing options, such as logo, barcode, QR code and serial numbers.
The Disk Beacon’s parameters, such as broadcast interval, Tx power, friendly name, Major, Minor and UUID and other available services, can be set by using the dedicated APP, available in different versions (both for Android and iOS), or by OTA (On-The-Air) software: the transmission power, on which the reading distance and/or the localization accuracy depends, can be set in 4 different levels, as well as the time interval between one data transmission and another (from 100 msec. to 10 sec. and, with dedicated firmware, up to 3,600 minutes).
The Beacon’s battery, projected for a 1-year life (broadcasting rate of 1 second), can be easily replaced thanks to the press-fit system; BluEpyc offers the new Beacon with different accessories IP67 (wristband, key fob, wall mount, protection case and suction cup) for outdoor and industrial scenarios.
