TARGUS USB BLUETOOTH
ADAPTER
Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the Targus USB
Bluetooth Adapter. This adapter enables your PC or laptop
to wirelessly connect to Bluetooth devices up to 33 feet
(10m) with model ACB10US, or 328 feet (100m)
connecting to other Class1 devices with model ACB20US .
Devices that utilize Bluetooth are either Class 1 with a
range of 100m or Class 2 with a range of 10m. This range
will vary depending on the environment. To connect at
100m, both devices need to be Class 1 devices. For
example, a Class 2 Bluetooth mouse will have a range of
10m even when connecting to a Class 1 Bluetooth adapter.
The adapter allows you to connect up to seven Bluetooth
devices including PDAs, smart phones, keyboards, mice,
printers, and other Bluetooth 1.1/1.2 compliant devices. It
also has built-in 128-bit encryption and authentication,
enabling secure connections between Bluetooth devices
and installs easily with Plug-and-Play convenience.
