The BC2510, also called the Tough Tag, is an industrial-grade Bluetooth LE tag ideal for enabling asset tracking in harsh and demanding environments. This tag also features an accelerometer and temperature sensor.

Powered by a replaceable CR2477 coin cell battery, the Tough Tag has an outstanding anticipated battery life of over five years.

The BC2510 supports iBeacon and Eddystone.

Preparation

BC2510 Tags are used in Zonal and Grid Tracking Solutions. They are rugged Tags that can be attached to an asset via several methods including, but not limited to, lanyards, screws, magnets, zip ties, and adhesives.

To prepare your BC2510 Tags for use with Loop Mobile:

  1. Open the box and remove the Tags from their packaging materials.
  2. To activate a Tag, remove the white adhesive label on the side of the Tag that says “REMOVE BEFORE USE,” along with the small magnet underneath it, and discard them. 
  3. When the magnet is removed, the Tag automatically activates.

Note: This is a one-time action, and replacing the magnet will not deactivate the Tag.

Please proceed to Outdoor Tracking – Loop Mobile when you are ready to associate your BC2510 Tags to your assets.
