The BluePort XP is the world's only totally wireless and portable Class 1 Bluetooth serial adapter. With its integrated Power Pack, you can create wireless connections anywhere, anytime, and stay connected for up to 32 hours on a single charge. BluePort XP enables wireless connections to any legacy serial port and supports bi-directional RS232 signaling at a rate of 232.4Kbps. Just attach BluePort XP to your device's RS232/EIA232 port, plug it in, and you're connected. The transmit range can be up to 330' (100m), depending upon environmental factors.There are three ways to utilize BluePort XP's capabilities:
1. Direct to a Bluetooth client: The client creates a SPP connection to the unit and uses a virtual COM style interface. Data is sent and received on the client exactly as if a serial cable was connected to a real COM port on the client.
2. Use a pair of BluePort XPs for true cable replacement.
