Netclearance Systems, Inc. unveiled mBeaconSense, the world’s first multi-sensor BLE beacon technology integrating five sensors into one form factor.
The mBeaconSense hub embeds temperature, vibration, accelerometer, magnetic, and light sensors into a 15mm x 20mm form factor making it the industry’s smallest beacon technology to incorporate multiple data sensors into one device. Combined with the Netclearance Systems’ Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and mesh gateways, mBeaconSense enables multiple remote sensing capabilities in a single tag allowing for streamlined, and cost-effective deployments. mBeaconSense includes everything necessary to create next generation IoT sensing capabilities utilizing low power Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
“The launch of mBeaconSense addresses a gap in the marketplace by offering a complete suite of multi-mode proximity beacons and software from one company,” said David Fernandez, Netclearance Systems’ CEO. “A sensor doesn’t mean much unless there is a powerful gateway to collect and analyze the data. We already had the servers, the analytics, and the gateways. The mBeaconSense was the missing piece.”
The mBeaconSense incorporates a near field communication (NFC) antenna and memory to provide close proximity passive identification capabilities making the product both a hybrid passive and active tag. Unlike anything else in the industry, this innovative solution allows for the tag to be read from a few inches to miles away via Internet connection capabilities.
mBeaconSense is designed to enable scalable deployments of BLE sensor beacons that can run using small batteries for many years. The Bluetooth low energy (BLE) RFID enabled battery-powered smart tags collect and store multiple levels of information delivering long read range without line of sight, lowering cost of ownership, and allowing for the lowest power consumption of any competing technology.
The device joins the Netclearance Systems’ leading portfolio of IoT gateways, including the mBeacon2 and mBeacon3. All Netclearance Systems, Inc. solutions utilize proximity beacon technology and feature open server APIs (REST), mobile SDKs, and advanced analytics capabilities.
