The EW-RN-240 is the world's smallest, lightest, and most capable Class 1 Bluetooth serial adapter. It enables wireless connections to any legacy serial port and supports bi-directional RS232 signaling at a rate of up to 464 Kbps. Just attach the RN-240 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 several ways to utilize the serial adapter:
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. Cable replacement: Utilized in cable replacement when pairing two serial adapters with simple dip switches.
Cable replacement is a powerful feature that offers a quick and simple solution for point to point communications. It replaces wired communication between a host device and a remote device with a Bluetooth link. This solution works with all Roving Networks Bluetooth modules and serial adapters. More information on this feature can be found in the cable replacement application note.
