The Sentrius BT510 sensor from Laird Connectivity is in stock at distributor Mouser Electronics. The compact, battery-powered, multi-sensor platform provides reliable Bluetooth 5 long-range connectivity, making it an ideal solution for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

The BT510 sensor 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 system-on-chip (SoC), which delivers advanced processing capability, enabling feature-rich application development with 1Mbyte of flash memory.

The ultra-low-power sensor is powered by a replaceable CR2477 coin cell battery, enabling multi-year performance with simple, intuitive maintenance.

It is future proof, capable of receiving Over the Air (OTA) updates from a supported mobile application or, in the coming months, through cloud deployment using Laird Connectivity's Sentrius IG60 IoT gateway integrated support.

The Sentrius BT510 sensor is ready-to-use in just minutes and features extensive worldwide approvals, including FCC, IC, CE, MIC, RCM, and Bluetooth SIG.

Housed in a rugged IP67-certified enclosure with an easy-to-use twist/lock design, the device enables field use in harsh environments and in applications such as environment monitoring, industrial heating and cooling, food safety monitoring, and cold chain management.
