Confidex Viking Series
Boltable BLE Beacon



The Confidex Viking Classic is an industrial grade Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Beacon for use in challenging environments in applications requiring identification, location and sensing. Designed with upto 10 years of battery life and encapsulated for IP68 protection, as well as good environmental chemical resistance to moderate concentrations of acids, alcohols, alkalis, detergents and cleaners, the Viking Classic can be deployed in a wide range of general industrial environments.

The Confidex Viking Tough comes with the standard parameters of the Viking Classic, in a more robust housing enabling use in more challenging environments.

The Confidex Viking Slim comes with the standard parameters of the Viking Classic, in a smaller housing for use where space or position requires a more subtle beacon.

*Mechanical fixing is recommended to be used in every application that includes risk for high mechanical stress or low temperature during tag fixing. Screw size M5 is to be used for fixing.

** Sensor is located inside the plastic housing, which limits real time measurement of the ambient temperature.
Sensor calibration is available as additional service.
Other sensors may be available on request
