Industrial Proximity Beacon for harsh environment

Location and proximity beacons for industrial harsh environment are not very common. High temperature rating, heavy duty housing and long service life are essential for these deployment.

We have made IDEGG version of the Bluetooth beacon with metal body and inter exchangeable electronics part housed in tough plastic enclosure to be rated up to +85ºC. Suitable for material tracking and positioning applications.

It can be used directly with ICR-3232W 4G router and our Node-Red application.
