Dataeagle Beacon is an industrial grade Bluetooth Beacon, matchbox-size LE device, produced by Schildknecht. Up to now Beacons have played the role of fixed Radio Signposts in museums or large department stores, transmitting useful, location-based information to visitors’ mobile devices. Dataeagle Beacon transmits short data packages to any device with a Bluetooth interface, and covers a radius of up to 30 meters.
You can use the Dataeagle Beacon to localize tools for the servicing of machines, for various kinds of presence detection, or storing of data to be used for increasing process flow efficiency. A number of special features make it well suited for industrial use: power supply via 24V or battery, protection class IP65, and optional sensor connection via M8. This industrial Beacon has already been successfully implemented in continuous, cable-free monitoring of engines, with measurement data sent directly to an app or over a gateway to the cloud for analysis.
