Mouser Electronics, Inc., the New Product Introduction (NPI) leader empowering innovation, is now stocking the Sentrius™ IG60-BL654 and BT510 Starter Kit from Laird Connectivity. Including the latest wireless IoT gateway offering in Laird Connectivity’s growing family of IoT devices, the kit securely and reliably connects Bluetooth®-enabled sensors to the cloud, providing everything needed to start a wireless Internet of Things (IoT) proof-of-concept — with temperature sensing, vibration sensing, proximity, and door open/close reporting — in minutes.
The Laird Connectivity Sentrius IG60-BL654 and BT510 Starter Kit, available from Mouser Electronics, includes the Sentrius IG60-BL654 gateway with Amazon Web Services (AWS), plus three BT510 Bluetooth 5 sensors. Engineers can gather data from the BT510 sensors and collect the data with the IG60-BL654 gateway before sending it to the cloud via AWS IoT Greengrass, while available iOS and Android mobile apps enable fast, in-field provisioning.
Based on Laird Connectivity’s 60 Series system-on-module (SoM) and BL654 embedded Bluetooth module with Nordic Semiconductor nRF52840 system-on-chip (SoC), the IG60-BL654 provides a powerful platform for Bluetooth 5 long-range sensor-to-cloud applications. The combination of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi allows customers to capture data from Bluetooth 5 sensors, add edge intelligence, and send that data to the cloud over high-performance 802.11ac Wi-Fi.
The Sentrius BT510 is a multi-sensor platform that combines temperature, open/closed, motion, and impact sensing with Bluetooth 5 capabilities such as long-range (Coded PHY), security, and Bluetooth Low Energy beaconing. The module integrates the field-proven long-range Laird Connectivity BL654 Series module with the Nordic nRF52840 SoC, which delivers advanced processing capability, enabling feature-rich application development with 1 Mbyte of flash memory.
Apart from the kit, the IG60-BL654 gateway is also available in two variants: the previously mentioned AWS IoT Greengrass version and the Laird Connectivity Linux version, which includes Laird Connectivity’s Linux build, hardware root of trust, and development tools. Both versions are globally certified to FCC, IC CE, MIC, UL, Bluetooth SIG, PTCRB, and GCF entities and end-device certified to AT&T and Vodafone.
