Mouser Electronics now stocking Sentrius BT610 I/O sensor

New Bluetooth 5 sensor platform from Laird Connectivity turns wired sensors into IP67-rated, battery-operated wireless nodes

The new Sentrius BT610 I/O sensor, available from Mouser Electronics, is powered by the Laird Connectivity BL654 Bluetooth module, enabling the sensor to deliver full Bluetooth 5 capabilities, including LE Coded PHY.

At a hardware level, the BT610 is said to support virtually any industry-standard external sensor through a wide range of interface options, such as general-purpose analogue inputs, digital input/output to I²C, SPI, and UART, or in combination with a sensor cable assembly.

The many configuration choices enable users to read and report sensor data up into the cloud and configure alarm events through the associated Android or iOS mobile app.

Users can choose to use either the Nordic nRF Connect SDK or Zephyr RTOS to develop custom applications and address their own requirements or use the ready-to-deploy application software that comes onboard the BT610. The BT610 is fully certified for FCC, ISED, EU, RCM, and MIC, and is Bluetooth SIG listed.

Harsh Internet of Things environments solution

“With a rugged IP67 enclosure, including a pressure vent, a high-gain internal antenna with IPEX locking connector, and long-range Bluetooth 5 connectivity (LE Coded PHY), the BT610 is an ideal sensor solution for harsh Internet of Things (IoT) environments where reliable wireless connectivity is essential to keeping systems online and operational,” says Mouser Electronics.

As a result, users can take advantage of robust and secure messaging in applications such as cold chain, HVAC monitoring, single/three-phase induction motor AC current sensing or tank level monitoring.

IoT Starter Kits

Mouser also offers the Laird Connectivity Sentrius IG60-BL654 + BT610 IoT Starter Kits. The kits contain a Sentrius IG60-BL654 wireless IoT gateway with global power supplies, three Sentrius BT610 I/O sensors, three thermistor cable assemblies, mobile apps for configuration, and Laird Connectivity’s free AWS-based IoT monitoring evaluation platform. Users can gather data from the BT610 sensors, collect the information with the IG60-BL654 gateway and send it to the cloud via AWS IoT Greengrass.
