Sentrius™ BT610 I/O Sensor + AC Current Assemblies

Recommended for New Design (RND)

Overview

Laird Connectivity’s Sentrius™ BT610 I/O Sensor is an open development device with Bluetooth 5 enabling you to develop the application to turn your wired sensors into IP67-rated battery-operated wireless nodes, providing robust, secure, and cloud ready messaging. Leveraging our BL654 module, it provides full Bluetooth 5 capabilities, opening up industrial and equipment monitoring applications. 

This configuration is designed with three-phase AC current measurement in mind, enabling customers to develop their own application on the device to monitor an electrical load profile remotely using a current sense method. It enables users to read and report sensor data to the cloud and define alarm conditions. 

There are two application development paths on offer; 

  • Using our Canvas platform firmware and sample applications as the basis for your application giving a head start on your development 
  • Ground up using Zephyr RTOS board files provided by Laird Connectivity

Software / RTOS Environment: 

  • nRF Connect SDK / Zephyr RTOS SDK for customizable applications 

Option for Canvas Device Management 

  • Application development environment to develop Canvas device management 
  • Advanced deployment tools including mobile app (Android and iOS) to register devices, and engineering services support. 

Three measurement ranges of AC Current Sensor for measuring the RMS current of an AC system: 

  • 0 – 20 Arms 
  • 0 – 150 Arms 
  • 0 – 500 Arms 

Comprehensive Certifications for FCC, ISED, CE, UKCA, AS/NZS, MIC 

Industrial temperature range (-40º to +85º C) 

Industrial IP67 enclosure 

Industry-leading support works directly with our engineers to help customize and deploy your design. 

Replaceable large capacity battery

Sensors and Cable Assemblies Sold Separately

The Sentrius BT610 sensor enclosures are not shipped with sensor cable assemblies for any of the focused applications outlined. Both the BT610 and required cable assembly must be ordered separately in the quantities required.
