Bluetooth Low Energy for Energy Monitoring Reference Design

TIDC-BLE-METER-READING

Design files

Overview

The TIDC-BLE-METER-READING reference design focuses on an application for reading an energy monitor device over a Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) link using the SimpleLink™ CC2650 multi-standard wireless MCU and corresponding SensorTag module. The module is then connected to the hardware (with a minor modification) from the design TIDM-3OUTMSTSTRP as the metering data source. This reference design also includes an Android application that functions as a remote reader and control terminal.

Features
  • Reading of the energy monitor's parameters with Bluetooth Low Energy link
  • Simple creation of Bluetooth Smart profile
  • Interface to energy monitoring device via UART
  • Contains our SimpleLink ultra-low-power wireless microcontroller, MSP430 microcontroller and low-voltage, low-power 7-channel transistor array

A fully assembled board has been developed for testing and performance validation only, and is not available for sale.
