FDK develops multifunctional & rechargeable "Sensor Logger"

May 18, 2015

FDK CORPORATION (Tokyo Stock Exchange 2nd Section: Code 6955), announces the development of the "Sensor Logger" that can be used repeatedly by recharging, following the recent development of the world's thinnest (*1) "Sensor Beacon" which had a Bluetooth communication function.

Sensor Logger- Background -
FDK has been developed and started mass production of the "Sensor Beacon", with excellent portability in order to response to the growing attention in recent years of IoT (Internet of Things) and IoE (Internet of Everything) which connect the people and goods of information with a "simple connectivity", and seamlessly to the internet.
Through the promotion of the "Sensor Beacon", we repeatedly asked from the customers on the several opinions to the product such as "I want to use it repeatedly", "I want to have a sense of a surrounding environment", "I want to record the data",etc. To respond to these customer opinions, FUJITSU ADVANCED ENGINEERING LIMITED, a FUJITSU group member company and FDK have been developing the "Sensor Logger"

- Feature and specification -
1. Multi-sensor device
This product is a sensor device equipped with sensors up to six (acceleration/geomagnetism/temperature/humidity/pressure/illuminance). It can be used to gather the dynamics information (movement, stop, direction, etc.) and the ambient environment (temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, brightness, etc.) by various built-in sensors.
In addition, as it is rechargeable and is equipped with a memory function, it is able to trace its objects. It can be used in a variety of applications, such as the application to watch a person who needs a nursing care and the application for the workers' surrounding environment management.

2. Collection, visualization of sensor data by BluetoothLE (*2) communication
By adopting the Bluetooth Low Energy communication system which is a standard I/F of smart devices (smart phones, tablets, etc.), it is able to save power and transmit and receive information in general smart devices.

3. General Purpose USB Battery Charging
It can be charged from the commercially available Micro-USB charger.

It would be exhibited in the FDK booth of TECHNO-FRONTIER 2015 to be held at Makuhari Messe from May 20 to 22.
