THIS ITEM IS IN BETA TESTING/PROTOTYPE STAGE. THE OFFICIAL MOBILE APPLICATION IS STILL IN DEVELOPMENT & THE ENCLOSURE IS A SIMPLE POLYCASE, NOT THE FINAL FORM FACTOR. 

Pinnacle Spot (SDI-12 Buddy Bluetooth), designed by Dr. Zengqiang Liu, is the latest product  in the Pinnacle Systems offering that helps researchers and growers like you get your tasks done with ease. This device connects an SDI-12 sensor to your Android smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. You can detect the sensor, read its values, including calibrated values per manufacturers’ formulas or your own custom calibrations, change its address, and more!

Description

Use cases:

  1.  Test each sensor and assign a unique address.
  2. Troubleshooting an existing sensor on your platform. Test each sensor for correct responses.
  3. Spot check your field or grow room. Carry a sensor and read its values at different locations.

If you wish to log data on the long run such as using this device as a wireless data logging node, this is not the right use case. The Serial-over-Bluetooth profile used by this device means it can’t go to sleep between data points so it must stay awake and the battery will drain after several hours. For continuous data logging the Pinnacle Sensor Node + Pinnacle Brain (coming soon) will be your best option.
