7.1.2 Bluetooth sensor data format
Broadcast packet format

The sensor data are in the broadcast packet’s vendor custom data.Large-end

VID Sensor type Temperature Relative humidity Accelerator data Accelerator range Geomagnetism data Geomagnetism range Pressure data
2 Bytes 1 Bytes 2 Bytes 2 Bytes 6 Bytes 1 Bytes 6 Bytes 1 Bytes 3Bytes

(MSB-LSB).Data format as below:

For the two example broadcast as below:

Example 1 0xFF 5900 03 6E08 7B34
Example 2 0xFF 5900 04 003F 004B F800 01

In the broadcast package, 0xFF is for vendor custom Data, the next two bytes (0x59,0x00) represent vendor VID, The sensor type description as below:

Bit (from low to high) 1 2 3 4 5
Temperature Relative humidity Accelerator Geomagnetism Air pressure

For example : 00000001 is the temperature sensor;

00000100 is the accelerometer senseor;

00000011 is the temperature & humidity sensor.

Note:If the product is not described in sensor Type without a certain sensor type, there will

be no sensor data in the broadcast package.

Data conversion

The sensor data in the broadcast packet need to be converted to obtain the real senor data.

Temperature conversion formula
dara conversion t

X is for the temperature data in the broadcast packet.

For example 1 :

Temperature = 0x6E08 * 175.72/65536-46.85 = 28168 * 175.72/65536-46.85 = 28.67

Humidity conversion formula
dara conversion rh

X is for the humidity data in the broadcast packet.

For example 1 ,Humidity = 0x7B34 * 125.0 / 65536 -6.0 = 31540* 125 / 65536 -6 = 54.15%

Air pressure conversion formula
dara conversion px

X is for the pressure data in the broadcast packet, and it’s a 6 byte signed data

For example,the X data is 0x 01 AD B0


Acceleror conversion formula
dara conversion acc

X is for the accelermeter data in the broadcast packet, and it’s a 3×16 bit signed data.

For example 2, The x axis data is 0x003F,The y axis data is 0x004B,The z axis data is 0XF800

  1. x axis data= 63/1024=0.0615g
  2. y axis data=75/1024=0.0732g
  3. z axis data=-2048/1024=-2g

For the accelerator range, it describe as below:

Accelerator range 0x01 0x02 0x03 0x04
Range ±2g ±4g ±8g ±16g
Gyroscope conversion formula
gyroscope conversion formula

X is for the Gyroscope data in the broadcast packet, and it’s a 3x 16 bit signed data.

For the geomagnetism range, it describe as below:

Accelerator range 0x01 0x02 0x03 0x04
Range ±250dps ±500dps ±100dps ±2000dps

When this parameter is set to 0°C, it means that the temperature and humidity sensor will report immediately after the temperature is detected. For other values, the temperature and humidity detection value needs to be compared with the last detected value, and the difference between the set value and above will be reported immediately. If the detection value change range has not exceeded the set range, the temperature and humidity data will be reported at the broadcast interval.
