Fujitsu Components announces FWM8BLZ02A-109069 Bluetooth 4.1 sensor beacon

February 7, 2018 -- Fujitsu Components America 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, such as 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 32Kbytes.

To reduce clutter in the network, data downloads to a host device can be user specified for preset intervals, on a schedule, or on demand via a Bluetooth router. Data can be transferred to a smartphone, tablet, or a Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 host device.

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 x 31 x 12mm and operates on a single CR2450 coin cell battery with a life expectancy of more than two years.

FWM8BLZ02A-109069 has an operating temperature range of -30C to +60C, at 20 to 80% relative humidity. It is compliant with Apple iBeacon and Google Eddystone formats for basic advertising and to allow for sensor/memory enhancements and over the air (OTA) updates. Fujitsu offers sample codes for iOS and Android to assist with developing smartphone application software.
