Sentrius™ BT610 I/O Sensor + Thermistor Assemblies

Recommended for New Design (RND)

Overview

Laird Connectivity’s Sentrius™ BT610 Bluetooth 5 I/O Sensor will instantly turn your wired sensors into an IP67-rated battery-operated wireless nodes, providing robust, secure, and cloud ready messaging. Leveraging Laird Connectivity’s BL654 module, it provides full Bluetooth 5 capabilities, including long-range LE Coded PHY support for 4x the range of Bluetooth 4.2, opening up a wide range of equipment monitoring applications.

This pre-canned configuration is designed to support up to 4x thermistors which support a temperature range from -40°C to +125°C.

Thermistors come with benefits such as;

  • Better sensitivity than other temperature sensors, allowing them to work well over a small temperature range
  • Often lower in cost and therefore cheap to replace
  • Provide a fast response 

Laird Connectivity’s Sentrius™ BT610 bundled with thermistors offers a solution suitable for a wide range of applications such as remotely monitoring the health and status of control huts/houses with electrical equipment like HVAC units. 

For more information on the base BT610 sensor, see the webpage for the BT610 I/O Sensor

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.
