Description

Industrial-RX beacon:

  • Designed for indoor and outdoor and industrial applications
  • RX-only beacon – can receive ultrasonic, but can’t transmit it
  • Very solid compound-sealed IP67 level protection
  • Special IP67-membrane for ultrasonic sensor
  • External antenna with SMA connector for extended radio range
  • Currently, supports license-free 915MHz ISM band (US) and license-free SRD band 868MHz (EU). Future 433MHz HW variants may come in some months, but no firm schedule yet. You can place orders for 433MHz. When sufficient amount is collected, we will produce the 433MHz version as well
  • Two IP67 external connectors:
    1. Power:
      • +12V power supply (works from +6V to +15V)
      • Reset pin (different from early batch Industrial-TX and Industrial-RX – check with us, if you bought in Sep.2019 or earlier)
      • DFU pin (different from early batch Industrial-TX and Industrial-RX – check with us, if you bought in Sep.2019 or earlier)
      • GND
    2. Interfaces :
      • RS485
      • UART 3.3V
      • USB (TX+RX)
      • GND
  • Corresponding IP67 connectors (male part) included
  • No battery inside by default – external power bank or external power supply (+12V). Optional variant with internal battery is available on request
  • Extended working temperature range: -40C…+50C (not tested, provided by design)
  • Embedded reset switch and DFU switch – magnetic control
  • Supports wide range of ultrasonic frequencies: 19/25/31/37/45 kHz
  • Most of all, designed to work together with Industrial-TX beacon. But can work along with Beacon HW v4.9 or Beacon Mini-TX or Super-Beacon. In all cases, the radio bands must match
  • Ultrasonic range – up to 30m with Industrial-TX beacon or Beacon HW v4.9. And up to 20m with Mini-TX beacons
  • Radio range to modem – up to a few hundred meters in open space with full-size antennas
  • Optional external IP67 converter ~110/220V to +12V

Produced on request. Lead time – 3-5 days.

This sales item is shipped using Shipping & Handling fee (Complexity I).

Hi,

Can the USB be used as power supply with this product ? Same question with the Industrial TX . Thanks

admin

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 ?
Thanks

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?

admin

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.
