Kit to monitor wireless sensors by Laird Connectivity is available at Mouser
Wireless sensor monitoring technologies are bundled into a single IoT kit in the Sentrius MG100 / BT510 / BT610 Cumulocity IoT kit from Laird Connectivity. The integrated kit captures data from the included sensors and sends it to the cloud, via a global low power cellular (LTE-M/NB-IoT) connection. The kit is now available from Mouser Electronics.
The Sentrius MG100 / BT510 / BT610 Cumulocity IoT Kit, available from Mouser Electronics, is powered by Laird Connectivity’s Pinnacle 100 modem and Sentrius MG100 gateway. The combination captures data from the Bluetooth 5-enabled sensors and works seamlessly Software AG Cumulocity IoT telemetry platform, said Laird Connectivity. The kit includes a free 60-day trial of the software.
Cumulocity IoT provides fast visibility and control over remote assets with no software development required for asset tracking, cold chain monitoring, smart buildings, or industrial IoT (IIoT) systems, said Mouser.
The kit features the Sentrius BT510 and Sentrius BT610 sensors. The Sentrius BT510 is a multi-sensor platform that combines temperature, open / closed, motion, and impact sensing with Bluetooth 5 capabilities such as long-range (coded PHY), security and Bluetooth Low Energy beaconing. The module integrates the long range Laird Connectivity BL654 series module with Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF52840 SoC. The SoC’s processing capability is accompanied by 1Mbyte of flash memory.
The Sentrius BT610 sensor turns wired sensors into IP67-rated, battery-operated wireless nodes that provide robust and secure messaging. The sensor also incorporates the BL654 series module, enabling it to deliver full Bluetooth 5 capabilities, including low energy coded PHY. The Sentrius BT610 is suitable for harsh IoT environments which rely on wireless connectivity.
