4. Caution of Using Waterproof Outdoor Beacons

  1. Being close to a metal object will interfere with the signal, causing the signal to be weakened.
  2. Note the distance between DSBC-150 and the receiver to guarantee the accuracy of receiving.
  3. Keep away from corrosive objects.

8. Sensor Data format

8.1 protocol

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

Large-end (MSB-LSB).Data format as below:

VID Sensor type Temperature Relative humidity Accelerator data Accelerator range Gyroscope data Gyroscope range
2 Bytes 1 Bytes 2 Bytes 2 Bytes 6 Bytes 1 Bytes 6 Bytes 1 Bytes
Pressure data Liquid level Geomagnetism data
3 Bytes 2 Bytes 6 Bytes
For the two examples 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 sensor;
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.

8.2 Data conversion

The sensor data in the broadcast packet need to be converted to obtain the real sensor 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
P=110000Pa=1100hPa

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

dara conversion gyo

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
8.3 Read history data

Transmitted data format

VID Sensor type Temperature Relative humidity RTC Battery Percentage Alarm type
2 Bytes 1 Bytes 2 Bytes 2 Bytes 4 Bytes 1 Bytes 1 Bytes

VID: default 0x5900

Sensor type: default 0x03

Temperature and humidity data: same as beacon data format

RTC: UTC time For example: UTC=1613790124, the conversion time is 2021-02-20 11:02:04, and the conversion to hexadecimal is 0x60307BAC

Battery percent: battery power For example: 0x60 is 96%

Alarm type: low voltage alarm and temperature threshold, for example: 0x00 is no alarm, 0x01 is low voltage alarm, 0x10 is alarm that exceeds the set threshold temperature, 0x11 is both alarms.

The temperature and humidity are stored in the flash data including time stamp + temperature and humidity data.

Remarks: The time synchronization can be initiated by the gateway or mobile phone. If the time difference between the two sides is more than 3s, the synchronization will be performed according to the time of the gateway/mobile phone.
