Waspmote Gateway, USB, Bluetooth Low Energy, 5 dBi Antenna US$239.00

WGBLE-SMA5
Waspmote Gateway, USB, Bluetooth Low Energy, 5 dBi Antenna


Waspmote Gateway Bluetooth Low Energy SMA 5dBi

This device allows you to collect data which flows through a Waspmote sensor network into a PC or other device with a standard USB port. The Waspmote Gateway will act as a data bridge or access point between the sensor network and the receiving equipment. The receiving equipment will be responsible for storing and using the data received depending on the specific needs of the application.

The receiving equipment can be a PC with Linux, Windows or Mac OS, or any device compatible with standard USB connectivity. The gateway offers a USB A plug connector, so the receiving device must have a USB A receptacle.

Once the gateway has been installed correctly, a new communication serial port connecting directly to the Bluetooth Smart module's UART appears in the receiving equipment. This will allow the module to communicate directly with the device, being able to both receive data packets from the sensor network as well as modify and/or consult the module's configuration parameters.

The Waspmote Gateway ships with the BLE module and antenna as shown. This version includes the BLE-SMA5 Bluetooth Smart module in XBee form factor with RP-SMA connector and 5dBi antenna.

A compatible Waspmote core board example would be the WBLE-SMA5.

Waspmote Gateway Features

LEDs

Four indicator LEDs are included on the Gateway:
  • PWR indicates that the board is powered through the USB port
  • RX indicates that the board is receiving data from the USB port
  • TX indicates that the board is sending data to the USB port
  • I/O5 LED on the module's I/O pin 5

Buttons

Four buttons are included on the Gateway:
  • RST allows the BLE module to be reset
  • I/O-0 connected to the module's I/O pin 0
  • I/O-1 connected to the module's I/O pin 1
  • RTS-6 connected to the module's I/O pin 6
All the buttons connect each one of its corresponding data lines with GND when pressed. None of these has pull-up resistance.

Waspmote Overview

Waspmote is an open-source wireless sensor platform specially focused on the implementation of low-consumption modes which allows the sensor nodes ("motes") to be completely autonomous, i.e. battery powered. The life span of Waspmote sensor nodes may range from 1 to 5 years depending on the duty cycle and the radio used. The system is programmed through a custom Arduino-based IDE.

Waspmote is based on a modular architecture. The idea is to integrate only the modules needed in each device, optimizing costs. For this reason, all the modules (radios, sensor boards, etc.) plug into Waspmote through sockets. Every combination of Waspmote wireless hardware has FCC, CE and IC radio certifications, allowing you to deploy your device with minimal fuss.

Please see our Waspmote Category for a list of main Waspmote boards and starter kits, and see its subcategories for individual sensor modules or other accessories.
