Temperature & Humidity Sensors
ELA Innovation temperature sensors are perfectly adapted to severe industrial environments. Their wide measurement ranges, industrial calibration and various certifications allow ELA Innovation Bluetooth temperature sensors to ensure exceptional measurement accuracy of up to 0.5°C.
The PIR sensor is capable of detecting any presence in its infrared radiation, and has long been used in the field of intelligent buildings. By using a connected sensor, the managers of tertiary and industrial buildings will be able to control and optimize the management of resources, whether human, material or energy..
Beacon ID Series
Best for tracking people and equipment. ELA Innovation beacons are Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices that emit radio waves that other Bluetooth devices can pick up. These devices have a compelling combination of a tiny footprint with the ability to transmit several hundred meters. In addition, the BLE wireless communication protocol as very low power consumption, giving beacons autonomy of up to 20 years.

What does a Sensor do?
A sensor is a device that measures various forms of input from its environment. The sensor will take the data gathered and convert it into information that can be interpreted by either a human or a machine. Most sensors are electronic, but they can also be more rudimental- such as a glass thermometer presenting visual data. Typical uses of sensors in IoT are to measure temperature, proximity, pressure, smoke and more. Sensors are beneficial for tracking people and assets. As technology develops, the use of sensors will continue to expand. Engineers and IoT professionals worldwide use sensors to enhance transportation systems, healthcare and industrial automation.
Where are Beacons used?
When beacons were first gaining momentum in the IoT industry, many used them in retail applications. However, this type of connected device has been developing in the industrial sector for a few years now. Below are some examples.
The identification of equipment can be automated through Bluetooth beacons. This is common in fleet and transportation-based industries. An example could be Placing a beacon on the trailer of a truck will allow the driver to identify the trailer during the hooking and unhooking. This will make it possible to inventory the trailers and know their use rate.
Tracking of Fleet equipment
National and international airport operators are looking to better manage their non-motorized equipment fleets. This equipment, known as NME, includes stepladders, tow bars or luggage carts. Each piece of equipment has a beacon combined with a GPS box compatible BLE embedded in towing vehicles that will allow to locate and inventory the entire fleet.
There are thousands of examples of how industries can leverage beacons and their technology. Beacons can be used in healthcare, energy and utilities, for first responders and more.
Along with low-energy Bluetooth identification beacons, some manufacturers also offer wireless sensors. These sensors can address smart Building and Smart-Cities issues.

Why Choose ELA Beacons, Sensors and Tags?
With battery operation providing up to 20 years of autonomy, a competitive total cost of ownership is guaranteed.
Secure, Robust and Anti-FOD
ELA beacons have an industrial casing that is specifically designed to withstand shocks and vibrations in extreme conditions.
Real-time tracking and location of equipment is achievable using either Wirepas Mesh or Active RFID. This high precision technology enables analysis of equipment movements and easy location of equipment.
Quick and Easy Installation
These sensors can be affixed to any surface without the need for wiring, and are extremely easy to install. They can be installed with either a high-performance double-sided sticker or a support that can be screwed on.

What is a Beacon?
Think of the conventional Bluetooth beacon as a lighthouse. These hardware devices are fixed in position and transmit a constant signal that others can use to determine their location.
What is a Tag?
A tag is similar to a beacon except they are attached to objects that typically move. For example, tags are used to track location of tools, industrial machinery and people.
What is a Sensor?
A sensor is a piece of hardware that tracks a certain attribute like temperature, moisture, vibration or movement.
Data from beacons, tags and sensors is typically transmitted to wirelessly the cloud (via a wireless router) or to a mobile phone. From there, operators can react to whatever the hardware is recording.
