Bluvision has released new products that further strengthen their product suite and address the needs of Industrial IoT and the Industrial and Manufacturing sectors as a whole. The products include – the Industrial BEEKS beacon with ruggedized housing, the BEEKS Plus LR [Long-Range] beacons with over 0.6-mile radius, first-of-its-kind Directional Beamforming antenna and industry leading 10-year battery life, and the battery-powered and Power-over-Ethernet [PoE]-powered BluFis enabling Real-Time-Location-System [RTLS] solution in outdoor locations or locations with minimal infrastructure.
Bluvision’s Industrial BEEKS beacon with ruggedized-housing, IP-67 water resistance and environmental resistance, and five year battery life is suited for challenging manufacturing environments and industrial applications including Cold Chain Temperature monitoring and Motor Condition monitoring.
The BEEKS Plus LR beacons are designed with Directional Beamforming antenna.. The advantage of using this type of antenna is that enterprises can precisely determine if the beacon is in the front of, to the side or behind the phone. Bluvision’s BEEKS Plus LR beacons combined with Bluvision’s RTLS capabilities are a perfect fit for companies needing to monitor locations or assets in open areas or areas with difficult RF environments where signal transmission is often disrupted, making the determination of real-time location extremely challenging.
Like the Industrial beacons, BEEKS Plus LR beacons are IP67 water resistant and environmental resistance. The BEEKS Plus LR beacons are also equipped with sensors motion detection 3 axis accelerometer and NIST calibrated temperature sensors. The BEEKS Plus LR also has capabilities of logging sensor data within the beacon with options of 512 KB flash standard for logging temperature and environmental sensors for up to six months.
The latest in line of BluFi, Bluvision’s Bluetooth to WiFi gateways, can support any environment and location even in the absence of AC power, thereby offering great flexibility to deploying scalable BLE solution/s for outdoors and areas where power is not readily available.
