Sentrius IG60-BL654 + BT610 Starter Kit

End of Life (EOL)

Overview

EOL Notice: The IG60-BL654 + BT610 IoT Starter Kits are EOL as of Nov 18, 2022. See our EOL Notice for more details. 

Our Sentrius™ IG60-BL654 + BT610 IoT Starter Kit contains everything you need to prototype thermistor-type temperature monitoring applications and move real-time data to the cloud. They include the following:

  • 1x Sentrius IG60-BL654 Wireless IoT Gateway with global power supplies (optional LTE version adds LTE Cat 1)
  • 3x Sentrius BT610 I/O Sensor – Long-range Bluetooth 5, configurable, battery power, IP67 rated
  • 3x Thermistor cable assemblies – Connect to the BT610 for temperature sensing within -40°C to +125°C
  • Laird Connectivity’s free AWS-based IoT monitoring platform
  • Sentrius IG Connect - iOS and Android mobile app for fast, in-field provisioning
  • Global AC and DC power adapters

The IG60-BL654 + BT610 IoT Starter Kit is useful for prototyping IoT applications such as those found in cold chain transportation monitoring, refrigeration monitoring, long-range Bluetooth 5 designs, and more. Gather data from the BT610 sensors and thermistor assemblies and collect with the IG60-BL654 before sending up to the cloud via Amazon IoT Greengrass. 

BT610 - Focused Applications

The BT610 I/O Sensor is orderable alongside several sensor options (cable assemblies sold separately) for popular sensor use cases. 

Thermistor Sensors

Connect up to 4x thermistors (temp range -40°C to +125°) per BT610. For remotely monitoring health and status of various environments and electrical equipment such as HVAC units in control huts.

FAQ

How can I test LTE connectivity from my IG60-BL654-LTE with

When an available LTE connection is configured along with WLAN profiles and/or one or more WLAN profiles, the Sentrius IG60 uses the following behaviour to establish network connections:

  • If a WLAN like Wi-fi connection is established and available, it will be used when establishing a connection
  • The LTE connection will be used for connections when a WLAN connection isn't available

After following all steps to register and commission your IG60-BL654-LTE trough Wi-fi then successively deploying BT510/610 into your Bluegrass account, go back to your IG60 Sentrius phone application to remove Wi-fi and enable LTE. After a couple of minutes the LTE connection should take over on sending BT510 data into your Bluegrass platform.

Please make sure to use a proper activated IoT SIM Card compatible with LTE Cat1 network.

How do I upgrade my Starter Kit IG60 "out of the box" AWS software?

Once a device has been provisioned into AWS Bluegrass platform, it should upgrade by itself. If the IG60 isn't being upgraded, it means that something is going wrong at a connection level.

Can I update the firmware of the BL654 module inside my IG60-BL654 Laird Linux gateway?

Yes. There is a python script on the IG60-BL654 LL developer SD card image called
btpa_firmware_loader.py

This can be used to upload a new firmware to the BL654 inside IG60-BL654 LL.

What is IP rating

IP stands for Ingress Protection. Its a standard we use to check the sealability of a product once it is installed.

It is composed as IP## , where first digit is for dust/solid objects and the 2nd digit, is for liquids.
Here is the meaning for each numerical code:

First Digit Description
0 No protection
1 Ingress of solid object diameter 50 mm is protected
2 Ingress of solid object diameter 12.5 mm is protected
3 Ingress of solid object diameter 2.5 mm is totally protected
4 Ingress of solid object diameter 1.0 mm is totally protected
5 Protected against harmful dust
6 Totally protected against dust

2nd Digit Description
0 No protection no protection against liquid object No test
1 Protection against water drop vertically
2 Protection against water drop 15° Tilt from its normal position
3 Protection against water spray 60° from the vertical direction
4 Protection from water splash from all direction
5 Protection from water jets from all direction
6 Protection from strong water jets from all direction
7 Protection from water dip 1 m depth water for 30 min
8 Protection from water sink should be decided between customer and manufacturer
