BT510 Bluetooth 5 Long Range IP67 Multi-Sensor

Recommended for New Design (RND)

Overview

New: Board reference to develop your applications with Zephyr RTOS on our BT510! 

The Sentrius™ BT510 Sensor is a battery powered, Bluetooth 5 Long-Range integrated sensor platform enabling robust, reliable sensor data transfer in the harshest of environments.

The BT510 is powered by Laird Connectivity’s field proven BL654 BLE module that integrates Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF52840 silicon for feature rich application development in the Cortex M4F with 1MB Flash memory, which also enables integrated sensor data logging and storage. The ultra-low power sensor uses a single replaceable CR2477 coin cell battery, for a multi-year life and hassle free, long term maintenance.

The BT510 is a multi-sensor platform, with a magnetic reed switch sensor, temperature sensor, proximity sensor, and accelerometer. These multiple sensing capabilities support a massive array of use cases and applications, and its IP67 enclosure ensures robust protection for even the harshest of environments.

  • Multi Sensor Platform – Integrated temperature sensor with proximity, accelerometer and magnetic reed switch sensors
  • Best-in-Class BTv5 Performance – BLE Long Range, secure connections and BLE beaconing
  • Simple sensor and wireless configuration – Our supporting smartphone app easily configures all settings of the platform
  • IP67 Enclosure – A rugged IP67 certified enclosure with simple twist / lock design for hassle free maintenance
  • Replaceable Battery – Ultra low power capabilities and replaceable CR2477 coin cell
  • Worldwide Approvals – Device Certified for FCC, IC, CE, MIC, RCM and Bluetooth SIG
  • Future Proof – OTA updates from mobile app or Cloud connectivity with Laird Connectivity’s Sentrius™ IG60 IoT gateway
  • Customization – Custom branding, packaging, application development all available!

How far can power-saving take your application?

The Sentrius BT510 is a Bluetooth 5 Low Energy multi-sensor can last for months or years on its replaceable coin-cell battery. That battery life is dependent on lots of factors such as sleep time, ambient temperature, and more. Estimate how long your BT510 application can go on a single battery using our battery estimator tool.

FAQ

What is the JSON string to change the TX power in the BT510 outside of the BT510 app?

The following string should be sent over VSP, where 8 is 8dBm

{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "set", "params": {"txPower": 8}, "id": 1}
Valid values include:
-40 dBm, -20 dBm, -16 dBm, -12 dBm,  -8 dBm, -4 dBm, 0 dBm, +2 dBm, +3 dBm,  +4 dBm, +5 dBm, +6 dBm, +7 dBm, +8 dBm

See the user guide for further details.

Why am I not seeing temperature adverts from the BT510 sensor?

After factory defaulting the BT510 it enters shelf mode. Before configuring the BT510 sensor from the app you should press the button on the front of the sensor for 3 seconds to move it from shelf to active mode before configuration from the BT510 app.
