The Super-Beacon-Outdoor is an outdoor version of the Super-Beacon. The Super-Beacon-Outdoor survives complete submersion into water. See the demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIA2Gc5KaQI.
However, as with any outdoor versions, the performance during the rain and dust exposure is not guaranteed and depends on the severity of the conditions. As well, it is highly recommended to use external umbrellas and similar protection as well as periodic cleaning from dust to minimize the effect of long-term exposure to adverse environmental conditions.
The Super-Beacon has compound-sealed electronics and its sensors are protected with special IP56-rated protective membrane. Membranes brings additional minor losses to ultrasound signal. Thus, theoretically speaking, the range of the Super-Beacon-Outdoor is slightly lower than that of a regular Super-Beacon. However, in majority of cases, the difference is not noticeable.
The Super-Beacon-Outdoor is a dual-use beacon – it can both receive and transmit ultrasonic pulses.
The Super-Beacon-Outdoor can be used in both the Non-Inverse Architecture (NIA) and the Inverse Architecture (IA): Architecture comparison.
Supports license-free 915MHz ISM band (US) and license-free SRD band 868MHz (EU). Support of the 433MHz ISM band (EU) comes with a larger order.
All Super-Beacons have 6D IMU (3D gyro + 3D accelerometer) onboard.
The Super-Beacon-Outdoor is an improved and in all-the-way superior version of Beacon HW v4.9:
The Super-Beacons will supersede the Beacon HW v4.9 and the latter will be discontinued after a while.
