Questions and Answers
Is it possible to have a step file of this beacon? Thank you
We will prepare in coming days and share the exterior STEP file
Hi, any chance to get a STP file? Thanks,
marvelmind.com/pics/_Beacon_Industrial_RX_external_only.STEP – for Industrial-RX
marvelmind.com/pics/_Beacon_Industrial_TX_external_only.STEP – for Industrial-TX and Industrial Super-Beacon
Can the USB be used as power supply with this product ? Same question with the Industrial TX . Thanks
Industrial Super-Beacons, Industrial-RX and Industrial-TX can be powered only from an external source. Nominal voltage – +12V. But it can work from 6V to 17V.
Many thanks for your answer.
I have another question : where can I get SMA connector to connect power and USB signal ? I am trying to find it on the internet but my research are not succesful for now. Do you know a specific reference ?
We are happy to answer questions in FAQ forum
What is the dimension and weight?
108x90x30 without antenna, but with connectors. Weight: ~200g.
Hi. Will the units survive on a construction machine, e.g. excavator or pile rig, in an environment with a lot of chock and vibration?
It always depends on severity, frequency of vibration, etc.
In general, if you want to install a beacon on something noisy – drone, drilling machine or something like, then it must be an ultrasonic-transmitting beacon, for example, Industrial-TX. Because if you plan to install Industrial-RX in such conditions, the noise from the machine may severely limit the range.
Excavator is not so noisy in ultrasound, after all. The most problematic could be devices with a wideband white noise: airguns, compressors, ventilation, etc. They produce not only audible but also ultrasonic noise. Regular machines, like excavators, are relatively quiet in ultrasound. But, of course, everything must be tested in practice in the small scale before a larger scale deployment, because there more exceptions than rules.
In general, yes, Industrial beacons are design for the environment of construction sites and similar and shall be able to withstand usual conditions on site.
The only thing you would need to take care – a long-term exposure to water, dust, sun, ice. That may kill anything eventually. So, all kind of shadows, umbrellas, etc. is a recommended option – usual stuff for any outdoor equipment like cameras or speakers, etc.
