LoRaWAN + BLE Sensor Adds External Probe

Laird Connectivity has developed a sensor that features integrated antennas, an external temperature probe, and rugged IP65 enclosure. The Sentrius RS1xx External Series probe allows mounting the sensor outside of a device and measure the temperature inside via the cabled sensor. Designed for a wide range of cold chain management applications like agriculture and food safety monitoring, the configurable sensor device leverages the benefits of LoRaWAN and Bluetooth low energy (BLE) connectivity in a small form factor.


The RS1xx External Series can be coupled with a Sentrius RG1xx LoRa Gateway to create a wireless ecosystem with reliable RF performance. This ecosystem of pre-integrated solutions enables the flexibility and freedom to create everything from a single stand-alone node to a complete end-to-end IoT network.


The RS1xx External Series probe supports a wide temperature range of -55°C to +125°C. It reliably sends sensor data in harsh RF environments over long distances to remote LoRaWAN gateways, and with the added benefit of a BLE connectivity option, sensor data can be sent to smartphones and tablets for local configuration, control, or data visualization.


The RS1xx comes equipped with robust enclosures, robust multi-layer security to safeguard networks at every level, industry leading support services, and it is fully certified for FCC, IC, CE, and Bluetooth SIG listing.
