Industrial IoT kit for wireless sensor monitoring

22-08-2022 | Mouser Electronics | Test & Measurement

Mouser is now shipping the Sentrius MG100/BT510/BT610 Cumulocity IoT Kit from Laird Connectivity. This blend of proven wireless sensor monitoring technologies is bundled in one integrated kit that captures data from the included sensors. It sends it to the cloud through a global low-power cellular (LTE-M/NB-IoT) connection.

The kit is powered by the Laird Connectivity Pinnacle 100 modem and Sentrius MG100 gateway. Combining the advantages of Bluetooth 5 technology with low-power cellular LTE connectivity, this dynamic duo provides a single, fully integrated solution to capture data from the Bluetooth 5-enabled sensors and operates seamlessly with the industry-leading Software AG Cumulocity IoT telemetry platform (free 60-day trial included). Cumulocity IoT offers fast visibility and control over remote assets with no software development needed for asset tracking, cold chain monitoring, smart buildings, or IIoT systems.

The kit provides two proven sensor systems: Sentrius BT510 and Sentrius BT610. The Sentrius BT510 is a multi-sensor platform consolidating temperature, motion, open/closed, and impact sensing with Bluetooth 5 capabilities such as long-range (Coded PHY), security and BLE beaconing. The module combines the long-range Laird Connectivity BL654 Series module with the Nordic Semiconductor nRF52840 SoC, which produces advanced processing capability, allowing feature-rich application development with 1MB of flash memory.

The Sentrius BT610 sensor turns wired sensors into IP67-rated, battery-operated wireless nodes offering robust and secure messaging. The sensor also includes the BL654 Series module, allowing it to provide full Bluetooth 5 capabilities, including LE Coded PHY. The Sentrius BT610 is excellent for harsh IoT environments where reliable wireless connectivity is crucial to keeping systems online and operational.
