  • Marvelmind Super-Beacon-Outdoor (28kHz)
  • Offers an outdoor version of the Super-Beacon
  • Comes with a dual-use beacon
  • Survives complete submersion into water
  • Onboard 6D IMU (3D gyro + 3D accelerometer)
  • Rated: IP56

The Marvelmind Super-Beacon-Outdoor (28kHz) is an outdoor version of the Super-Beacon. The Super-Beacon-Outdoor survives complete submersion into water. It is also highly recommended to use external umbrellas or shields and similar protection, as well as periodic cleaning from dust to minimize the effect of long-term exposure to adverse environmental conditions.

The Super-Beacon has compound-sealed electronics, and its sensors are protected with a special IP56-rated protective membrane. Membranes bring additional minor losses to ultrasound signals. Thus, theoretically speaking, the range of the Super-Beacon-Outdoor is slightly lower than that of a regular Super-Beacon. However, in the majority of cases, the difference is not noticeable. The Super-Beacon-Outdoor is a dual-use beacon - it can both receive and transmit ultrasonic pulses.

  • 1x Marvelmind Super-Beacon-Outdoor (28kHz)


  • 55 x 55 x 33 mm

  • Ultrasonic Frequency: 28 kHz
  • Weight: 75 g

Distance between beacons

  • Reaches up to 50 meters in lab conditions
  • Recommended distance is up to 30 meters (RX4 to RX4)
  • Range of stable tracking of Super-Beacon-Outdoor + Super-Beacon-Outdoor is 20-50% bigger than the range of Beacon HW v4.9 + Beacon HW v4.9 in the same conditions

Coverage area

  • Reaches up to 1000 m2 with the Starter Set configurations
  • Coverage for larger territories is similar to cellular networks

Location precision

  • Absolute: 1-3% of the distance to the beacons
  • Differential precision: ±2 cm
  • Differential precision is on par or better than in the Beacon HW v4.9, partially, because the sensor is a point - not as spread sensors of HW v4.9; and, partially, because of higher processing power and more advanced algorithms of the Super-Beacon-Outdoor

Power supply and battery lifetime


  • LiPo battery 1000mAh
  • Battery lifetime totally depends on usage
  • Receiving beacon mode with 8Hz update rate and 10m-submaps => up to 30h
  • Transmitting beacon with 1/10Hz update rate => several months
  • Future power-saving features may increase battery life to 1-year and more (with a very slow update rate or location update on demand)


  • micro USB - recommended for permanent use
