Use it in rough indoor and outdoor environments
The Tough Beacon TB18-2 is resistant to extremes in temperature (-20°C / + 60°C (-4°F / +140°F), rain and snow. With an IP65 rating it can withstand harsh environments and handle indoor and outdoor conditions.
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.
