Indoor Positioning (IPS) tag 230 010 is our cost-optimized Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) tag. The tag is developed to track non-powered equipment such as tractor implements, pallets, work-in-progress materials and finished goods using BLE proximity technology. Another area of use is tool recognition for machines in the construction sector. The tag sends advertisements in a unique, open format optimized for material tracking and for working optimization of equipment utilization.
In CargoBeacon Track, we call this IPS-technology Proximity.
The tag has been specifically developed to track non-powered equipment such as tractor implements, pallets, work-in-progress materials and finished goods using BLE proximity technology. Another area of use is tool recognition for machinery. With our dedicated gateway, your machine may not only recognize the tool being used, it may also connect to the tag and register the exact usage of the tool. Information that later can be accessed either by the gateway or mobile phones in proximity to the machine.
The main insights provided by the tag is the total time it has been powered, the total time the tag has been deployed and total time it has been moving. The tag also transmit its current state - if moving or standing still and also for how long it has been in that state. By reading this information at regular intervals you will not only be able to understand asset utilization but also utilization over the period of a day. Apply this for entire fleets of assets and you will have the necessary data to optimize your logistics, operations or warehousing.
Besides data for asset optimization the tag also transmits battery status, current temperature and its BT address encoded in the advertisement package - just to enable app-based tracking using iOS operating systems.
Security lies warm at heart for CargoBeacon and our existing customers. The tag uses secure boot loader with signed certificates and firmware to virtually make tag tampering impossible. Further on the advertisement format contain secure elements that may be used to detect fake tags using the same advertisement format as 230010.
230010 is part of our 230-series of tags. These tags have all been specially developed to increase the use of already allocated resources with sustainability as one of the cornerstones. Rugged design, scratch-resistant labelling and maintenance-free for up to 10 years. Designed to last for battery changes and following repair, reuse and recycle phase. With different IPS technologies and sensors, the 230-series will help you optimize your fleet of assets based on asset location and utilization.
The tag's design enables several mounting possibilities:
Tags in the 230 series can be easily adapted for specific OEM use cases. With or without button and LED, customized overlay and running the application as needed by our customer.
