Extend your solution with accelerometer and temperature sensor

Thanks to the built-in accelerometer, the Tough Beacon TB18-2 helps you to determine if a beacon has been moved from its intended position or exposed to temperatures that exceed limitations for the transport of goods. It also supports use cases like theft prevention, vibration detection in forklifts, large scale asset tracking, and more.

Easy to deploy wherever you need it

Perfect for large deployments, the Tough Beacon TB18-2 can be easily attached and detached from objects or surfaces thanks to its built-in mounting brackets.

Long Battery Life

Equipped with two CR2477 batteries, Tough Beacon TB18-2 can last over 80 months at a one-second interval with 60 meters range. To make your beacon last even longer, simply replace the battery.
