The Ruuvi Node uses both the Nordic Semiconductor nRF9160 SiP cellular IoT module (LTE-M and NB-IoT) and an ultra-low power Nordic nRF52840 Bluetooth 5 multi-protocol (Thread, Zigbee) System-on-Chip SoC.

The Ruuvi Node is maintenance-free and will include an embedded solar panel to support energy harvesting, a full range of environmental sensors, GPS positioning (using the Nordic nRF9160 SiP’s embedded GPS support), and NFC (through the embedded NFC feature on Nordic’s nRF52840 SoC). A 45Wh battery, multi-use expansion ports, and support for an external power source is also included. The device can also act as a cellular gateway for any of Ruuvi’s ‘RuuviTag’ Bluetooth sensor beacons.

Ruuvi is looking to launch the first pilots of the Ruuvi Node during Q2-3 this year.
