Fujitsu Components America Offers BLE Sensor Beacon, Data Logger
Fujitsu Components America has announced that it has expanded its beacon offering with a Bluetooth 4.1 sensor beacon featuring data-logging capability for on-demand reporting in remote monitoring and tracking applications. These include indoor navigation, asset management and retail marketing.
The FWM8BLZ02A-109069 beacon monitors temperature, inclination, vibration and motion data, and records it to non-volatile memory inside the beacon. It is capable of storing up to 68 hours of data at 60-second intervals, or 42 days of data at 15-minute intervals, with a maximum storage capacity of 32 kilobytes.
The beacon is based on Nordic Semiconductor's Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) nRF51822 system-on-chip (SoC) to control the wireless connectivity, sensors, LED and battery management. The device measures 40 millimeters by 31 millimeters by 12 millimeters (1.6 inches by 1.2 inches by 0.5 inch) and operates on a single CR2450 coin cell battery with a life expectancy of more than two years.
The FWM8BLZ02A-109069 has an operating temperature range of -30 degrees to +60 degrees Celsius (-1.2 to +2.4 degrees Fahrenheit), at 20 percent to 80 percent relative humidity. It is compliant with the Apple iBeacon and Google Eddystone formats for basic advertising, and allows for sensor and memory enhancements and over-the-air updates. Fujitsu offers sample codes for iOS and Android to assist with developing smartphone application software. The device is available now.
