Recently, two different Minew location tags, B7 Button Wristband and B10 Emergency Button, became compatible with the Quuppa System, a powerful patented AoA (Angle-of-Arrival) technology platform for real-time tracking with sub-meter accuracy, which signifies the satisfactory coordination of these two tags to the Quuppa System.
Real-Time Location System (RTLS) for Indoor Tracking
As it’s acknowledged in the field of indoor positioning technology, Quuppa tests and certifies partners’ tags to ensure the proper functioning of Quuppa System. The Quuppa Intelligent Locating System™ is a powerful technology platform for location-based services and applications. It offers a one-size-fits-all technology solution for tracking tags and devices in real-time with centimeter-level accuracy. The Quuppa System is a reliable, versatile, highly customizable, fully scalable, and cost-effective Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) solution for all industries. Once the tags get certified, Quuppa’s approval serves as a guarantee of the tag’s quality. This helps the partner to sell their tags and Quuppa to avoid performance problems due to any ill-performing tags. Each test has been described to the partner to enable them to do tests internally prior to submitting the Tag for Quuppa certification. In addition to mechanical and functional tests, Quuppa tests antenna performance in a professional lab.
Minew’s B7 Button Wristband and B10 Emergency Button
Minew’s B7 Button Wristband and B10 Emergency Button, two BLE 5.0 supported wearable tags specially designed for the elderly (or other priorities) and enable the guardian to track the wearer’s precise location and status. B10 is rechargeable with strong magnetic suction charging and very friendly to the visual or auditory disability with vibration feedback. There is no need for panic in emergencies, people just press the button on the tags. Also, these tags are widely used in sports and smart buildings, remaining great performers in RTLS for indoor positioning and tracking services containing Quuppa compatible firmware.
Similarities and Differences
Minew breaks down some of the similarities and differences of these two beacons. These two BLE 5.0 location beacons both have a well-designed emergency button for pushing for assistance, which is widely deployed in healthcare. Moreover, the NFC inside has simplified the personnel management workflow of the caregivers as well as brought convenience for the patients. NFC-enabled tags considerably offer a flexible and cost-efficient access identification management solution.
To yield the greatest utilization of the indoor positioning system, we specifically provide the App SDK(Software Development Kit) for these two beacons, which can be downloaded based on your needs. In brief, SDK is provided for developers to develop application programs so that programmers can quickly build application software, and save the process of writing hardware code and basic code framework. In addition, the firmware upgrade is OTA(Over the Air) supported, largely saving the time cost and always keeping the work capability in an ideal status. If you encounter problems with it, feel free to contact the Minew sales team for more information.
When it comes to the differences, though both beacons perform excellently in a long broadcast range, B10’s transmitting distance of 100 meters is a little longer, 10 meters, than B7’s. More importantly, compared with the B7’s replaceable battery which is easy to replace, the B10 is equipped with a rechargeable battery whose service life is up to 60 days after full charging. Besides fitting the magnetic charging head, there’s no need for a strenuous connection but it makes charging more intelligent and convenient. Relatively speaking, the operability of B10 dwarfs a little to the B7 for its flexible wearing styles, the way to wrist wearing, and neck hanging – making the arrangement more fluent.
