LabVIEW BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) toolkit and Inkbird IBT6X termometer

Highlighted

Hi

 

I’m working on a LabView program that can read temperature from a Inkbird IBT6X Bluetooth thermometer. (IBBQ)

 

https://inkbird.shop/products/ibt-6xs

 

 

The Inkbird use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)

 

I’m using the LabView BLE toolkit and the BLED112 usb dongle.

 

I have installed the Bluegiga drivers.

 

I can connect to the Inkbird and read the name of the device (IBBQ)

 

I can also change the temperature reading between °C and °F

 

I can also send the CredentialsMessage {0x21, 0x07, 0x06, 0x05, 0x04, 0x03, 0x02, 0x01, 0xb8, 0x22, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00} to the characteristic 0xFFF1 on Service 0xFFF0

 

I can see that it works because the setup keeps the link running afterwards. (Else it will timeout after 30sec)

 

I can also send the “RealtimeDataEnableMessage”  {0x0B, 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00} to 0xFFF5 on Service 0xFFF0

 

But my problem is that I don’t get any response (temperature readings)

 

It seems that I’m missing some kind of subscription state for characteristic FFF4___FFF0

 

I have tried connecting to the device from an iPhone APP called “BlueSEE”

 

When I do the same (sending the “CredentialsMessage” and the “RealtimeDataEnableMessage”) and subscribe to FFF4___FFF0 I start receiving data from the temperature probes.

 

But how do I do this “subscribe” in BLE/ LabView ?

 

Thanks.

 

I’m looking forward to get this running so that I can make some great Brisket on my Smoker 😊

 

BTW

I found some info from others that has it up running but they are not using LabView ☹

Hello,

 

Is this question still open? Did you manage to find a way to get it to work with LabVIEW? 

 

Thanks,

 

Alasdair
