Estimating Range and Battery Life of SU-1000
The range between our SU-1000 Bluetooth tag and a Bluetooth gateway is anywhere from over 450m down to less than 200m.
The range of the SU-1000 tag can be adjusted by configuring the device’s Receiver Sensitivity and Transmit Power.
Several important factors such as Radio Spectrum, PHY, Receiver Sensitivity, Transmit Power and more influence Bluetooth range and subsequently, device battery life.
What is Bluetooth
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is an affordable solution for tracking both high and low-value assets
Bluetooth Tags are perfect for tracking tools, smaller equipment, or any mid-sized non-powered asset where a larger (and expensive) device does not make commercial sense.
- Track inventory as you sell, manufacture and restock across multiple warehouse locations
- Cold Chain Management / Other Sensor Monitoring
- Bin Location Tracking
- Smart Farming / Agtech Applications
Low-profile IP67 rugged housing
The IP67 rated housing is made of sturdy ABS/Polycarbonate plastic to survive bumps and knocks and to survive many years in the sun and weather. UV stable and rugged
L 80 x W 40 x H 18mm
Up to 5 years on 2 x AAs!
2 x standard “AAA” size batteries which provide a balance between size and capacity. Low-cost off-the-shelf alkaline batteries could be used or for applications that require extreme temperature or extra long-life, we recommend that off-the-shelf 1.5V lithium batteries are used. These are readily available from retail outlets, for example, Energizer Ulitmate Lithium.
-20°C to +60°C
For operation in extreme temperatures, the device must be fitted with lithium batteries.
