Bluetooth® Low-Energy Proximity Beacon



The EMBC01 is a Bluetooth Low-Energy proximity beacon suitable for mass deployment by system integrators.  The EMBC01 advertises ID data that is compatible with common beacon standards (UUID, Major ID, and Minor ID).   The EMBC01 is part of the coin-cell family of beacons which come in a small, weatherproof enclosure, using a standard coin-cell battery, or as a PCB panel.  A push-button with LED feedback can be used to select the right operating mode for your deployment.  The EMBC01 operating modes offer tradeoffs between the best performance, range, and battery lifetime.

The push-button can be used to cycle through different beaconing modes. Modes for high performance and long battery life are available. The modes are: · Sleep Mode with over 7 years of shelf life typical · ID Short Range Mode offers 100ms beacon interval, 15m range line-of-sight (LOS), and 1.5 months of battery life typical · ID Medium Range Mode offers 500ms beacon interval, 30m range, and 7.5 months of battery life typical · ID Long Range Mode offers 1s beacon interval, 75m range, and 12.5 months of battery life typical · Any mode can be locked for final deployment

The EMBC01 can be delivered in any quantity with guaranteed unique ID numbers. A unique serial number is printed on the label and encoded in a QR code for optical scanning.

Unlike most other beacons on the market today, the EMBC01 can’t be hacked.  The beacons come pre-programmed with a uniquely defined UUID, Major ID, and Minor ID and cannot be re-programmed wirelessly.

The EMBC01 can be customized for individual deployments with the Proximity Beacon Development Kit. The DVK contains a programmer interface board, cable, and 5 proximity beacons for re-programming. The RLink and RLink-Pro programming tools are available separately. The EMBC01 is FCC, IC, and CE certified, RoHS, Reach, and halogen free compliant.
