Bluetooth® Low-Energy
Proximity Beacon with
General Description
EMBC02 is a Bluetooth Low-Energy proximity beacon with integrated
accelerometer for attachment to objects that move. EMBC02
advertises ID data that is compatible with common beacon standards
(UUID, Major ID, and Minor ID), ONLY when an object is moving, or
ONLY after an object has fallen. There is also a mode to display
accelerometer data and gesture counts.
I Weatherproof Enclosure
· IP-64 rating, -20C to +60C operating range
· Size: 30mm x 10mm disk; Weight: 7 grams
· Replaceable CR2032 3V Li battery
· Integrated push-button with LED indicators
· PCB-only format also available
Similar to EMBC01, EMBC02 is part of the coin-cell family of
beacons which come in a small, weatherproof enclosure, using a
standard coin-cell battery, or as a PCB panel. A push-button with
LED feedback allows the user to select the right operating mode for
their deployment. EMBC02 operating modes offer tradeoffs between
different functional modes.
EMBC02 is shipped pre-programmed with several operating modes:
•Sleep Mode with over 7 years of shelf life typical
•Sensor Mode offers 1s beacon interval, 60m range line-of-sight
(LOS), and 4.5 months of battery life typical while displaying raw
accelerometer data and a tap counter.
•Moving Mode offers 100ms beacon interval, 30m range, and
consumes an average of 275 µA when beaconing and 6 µA while
idling. The device only beacons when movement is detected and one
minute after the device is still
•Fall Mode offers 100ms beacon interval, 120m range, and
consumes an average of 350 µA when beaconing and 13 µA while
idling. The device only beacons after a fall has occurred and 10
minutes after the event
Any mode can be locked for final deployment
EMBC02 can be delivered in any quantity with guaranteed unique ID
numbers. A unique serial number is printed on the label and encoded
in a QR code for optical scanning.
EMBC02 firmware can be customized for individual deployments
with the Proximity Beacon Development Kit. Custom parameters
include UID, power level, beacon interval, state-machine, gesture
alarm mode, gesture threshold, and accelerometer data and settings.
Gestures include: any movement, no movement, taps, falls, and
EMBC02 is FCC, IC, and CE certified, RoHS, Reach, and halogen free
