Bluetooth Access Point

Ethernet - Bluetooth Dual-mode Access Point

The VirtualSCADA® Anybus Wireless Bluetooth - Bluetooth Access Point is a rugged dual-mode Bluetooth (Bluetooth Smart Ready) access point with Bluetooth low energy gateway functionality. The Wireless Bridge access point allows up to seven Bluetooth devices to connect to the 10/100 Base-T Ethernet network. With its IP65-classed housing, it is suitable for tough applications where you need a robust and maintenance-free Bluetooth connection at a range of up to 1,000 ft (300 meters) and at an aggregated throughput of 1 Mbps. The Wireless Bridge is equipped with an external antenna with RPSMA connector. There is a wide selection of certified external antennas to choose from. Configuration is made easy via the SMART push-button system, SNMP or AT commands via TCP/IP or a tailored web interface. The Wireless Bridge features connectBlue Low Emission Mode® which solves any potential interference between Classic Bluetooth and Wi-Fi that is not handled by Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH). Additionally, the Wireless Bridge features DHCP server / client and is configurable to optimize for Profinet. The access point is fully Bluetooth qualified and provides radio type approvals for the US, Europe, Japan and Canada (FCC, R&TTE, MIC, IC). The Wireless Bridge is also compliant with EMC, Safety and Medical standards as well as UL/cUL Class 1 Div 2 Hazardous location certified.
