BC2500 Tag

A rugged device designed to locate assets within large controlled sites such as yards, construction, and mine sites, the BC2500 Tag solves its own location via GPS and broadcasts its coordinates via Bluetooth Low Energy. This clever combination of GPS and Bluetooth LE eliminates the need for expensive data plans for every single asset.

The BC2500 Tag delivers high levels of accuracy (2.5 meters CEP) with an incredible battery life of up to 10 years.

BlueCats ProxPoints can collect the location data from thousands of BC2500 Tags over 200 meters away. Our Loop Cloud Platform aggregates all location data and provides user access to live searches, reports, and visualisations ranging from many sites across the world down to a single BC2500 Tag.

Extreme Battery Life
  • 10 years at 6 fixes per day
  • Configurable GPS fix interval
  • Accelerometer means BC2500 Tags know when they have been moved
Consistently Fantastic Positioning
  • Accurate positioning via GNSS (GPS, Galileo, GLONASS)
  • Smart interference suppression maintains accuracy in challenging environments
  • Geocaching ensures BC2500 Tags learn from their last position and continually improve their accuracy
Customized Control
  • Centralized device management (ProxPoints & BC2500 Tags)
  • Over-the-air updates (firmware)
  • Device diagnostics (temperature, performance, battery status)
Flexible Site Infrastructure
  • Fixed ProxPoints can run powered/solar, networked/LTE
  • Mobile ProxPoints fixed to service vehicles or drones
  • Smartphones/tablets enable in-field BC2500 Tag/asset association and locating
Integrated Digital Awareness
  • Centralized visibility is accessible to multiple business units
  • Supply chain visibility via upstream tagging
  • Customer service via live asset status
Brilliant Range, Capacity & ROI
  • Line of sight over 200 meters
  • Site capacity measures in thousands
  • Data plans applied to ProxPoints and sites, not to every asset
