Fujitsu Component America, Inc. has added a series of Bluetooth 5 beacons and sensor beacons, the FWM8BLZ07 and FWM8BLZ07A . Based on Fujitsu's Bluetooth 5 FWM7BLZ20B module, the new beacons are based on the Nordic Semiconductor nRF52832 SoC and leverage the benefits of Bluetooth 5. They also support remote settings using commands from a central unit.
The FWM8BLZ07 beacon features an embedded advertisement function that encrypts data and securely authenticates and decrypts messages by utilizing an anti-spoofing function known as a message authentication code (MAC).
The FWM8BLZ07A is a multi-function sensor beacon that includes embedded temperature, humidity, air pressure, illuminance, 3-axis acceleration, and sound-level sensors. Multiple sensors in different combinations can be used in any Bluetooth environment through the Bluetooth standard beacon protocol to the latest Bluetooth 5 protocol.
The new beacons measure a compact, 40.0 x 31.0 x 12.0 mm within a gray, plain housing. The units use a single CR2450 coin-cell battery and include a voltage notification function that senses a voltage drop in the battery and allows users to determine the right timing for replacement.
They are available immediately.
