The SmartBeacon shock sensor records vibrations, shocks and climate data. It contains a 3-axis accelerometer as well as a temperature and humidity sensor. The sensor stores acceleration values that exceed a defined threshold and shock duration. Climate values can be recorded permanently and / or only when they exceed or fall below the threshold. The sensor can be used several times for different transports again and again.
For easy readout of a sensor, the Tec4App for smartphones is also available. For this purpose, data can be transmitted via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Each sensor has a unique ID, which is written on the label and stored as a barcode. In addition, the QR code on the label can be scanned with a smartphone. After scanning the barcode with the Tec4App, it connects to the SmartBeacon via BLE and automatically uploads all sensor data to the Tec4Cloud.
Via a simple browser login, the data can be viewed there afterwards, or automatic transport reports can be created or sent by email. The sensor is protected against splash water in a blue ABS housing with IP 50 protection and a membrane at the housing opening. The battery can be replaced by the user.
