EMBC22- Beacons

Next Generation BLE V5.0 Proximity Beacon with Accelerometer - Ultra-Low Power

General Description

The EMBC22 is a high-performance, customizable Bluetooth V5.0 low energy proximity beacon with an accelerometer for tracking objects that move.
Similar to the EMBC02, the EMBC22 comes in simple, easy to use coin-shape housing, and is now powered by the EM9304, the world’s lowest power Bluetooth IC.

New features include:

  • Longer life from a CR2032 battery
  • Longer range (up to 200m LOS)
  • Over-the-air configurability
  • Multiple interleaved packet types
  • Modular RF certification
  • Optional connector for sensors or power source

The EMBC22 is compatible with all major beacon formats including iBeacon™, Eddystone™, AltBeacon™ and compatible with Quuppa Intelligent Locating System™. The beacon is fully customizable over the air or in manufacturing. For example, the following parameters can be easily modified:

  • Packet types, including custom packet type
  • Device name, address, manufacturer name, model number, HW/SW revision
  • UUID, Major/Minor ID, UID or URL
  • Beacon interval, Transmitter power
  • Accelerometer function and sensitivity


The EMBC22 can be shipped pre-programmed with custom firmware or custom parameters and can be securely updated in the field with over-the-air programming from a mobile device (all major iOS® and Android™ devices supported).


The EMBC22 accelerometer can be used to implement efficient and lowenergy algorithms for various applications. The accelerometer can be used to activate beaconing on movement, or gestures, for example. When not active, the beacon consumes minimal energy.


The EMBC22 can be stored in Warehouse Mode without significantly degrading the battery lifetime. When active for 6 hours per day and configured for 0dBm output power and 1 second advertising intervals, the battery lifetime is more than 4 years.


The EMBC22 can be delivered in any quantity with guaranteed unique ID. A 2D unique serial number is printed on the beacon housing for optical scanning.


The EMBC22 is also available in PCB module format without housing. The module comes with the switch and battery holder. The beacon comes standard with a Renata CR2032/ 225mAh battery. Other Renata Lithium primary batteries such as CR2016/90mAh, CR2450/540mAh and CR2477/950mAh can also be accommodated.


The EMBC22 comes in a waterproof housing, and operates over a -20C to +60C temperature range. The EMBC22 is modular Bluetooth V5.0, FCC, IC and CE certified, RoHS and REACH compliant.
