Gimbal Expands Product Line With New USB-Powered Bluetooth Beacons
Gimbal has announced the availability of its Bluetooth Smart Gimbal Proximity Beacon U-Series 5. According to the company, the new beacon is a low-cost, low-maintenance solution that adds beacon functionality to traditional devices with USB ports, including computers, televisions, set-top-boxes, kiosks, point-of-sale (POS) terminals, vending machines, automated dispensers and more.
The U-Series 5 beacon is Gimbal's smallest proximity beacon to date, measuring 0.76 inch long, 0.61 inch wide and 0.28 inch high (19.3 millimeters by 15.6 millimeters by 7.1 millimeters). It is designed to enable a variety of devices to power proximity-triggered engagements to an opted-in user's mobile device, and helps retailers, venues and other beacon-enabled locations further extend their proximity networks. For added security, the U-Series 5 does not have USB data lines connected, which means it can safely be plugged into a powered USB port in a computer, POS register, ATM or other device with no risk of sending or receiving any data.
Gimbal Proximity Beacon U-Series 5 are available now for $25 apiece at https://store.gimbal.com.
