Socket's Cordless Serial Adapter with Bluetooth Wireless
Technology eliminates your conventional RS-232
serial cable, providing an easy-to-use, invisible
connection. This tiny adapter allows any device
with a standard 9-pin serial port to communicate
wirelessly. It will communicate with another
Cordless Serial Adapter or any Bluetooth enabled
device such as a laptop computer or PDA. Take
advantage of Personal Area Networking easily and
You don't need to install any drivers on the host device — just plug into the
9-pin serial port on your industrial equipment and wirelessly download the
information you need to any Bluetooth enabled mobile computer (i.e.,
notebook, Pocket PC, Palm or Mac OS device). Reduce costs by decreasing
cycle times for equipment maintenance and servicing through easier access to
serial ports in difficult or dangerous-to-access areas. Do you have cabled
connections you would like to replace with a cordless solution?
Attach a Cordless Serial Adapter on each side and presto —
your bulky cables are gone.
Included in the package is the Socket Cordless Serial
Adapter Configuration Utility, an easy-to-use Windows
application which lets you to reprogram many of the
default settings on your Cordless Serial Adapter. You can
custom configure settings to match your individual needs.
The utility runs under Windows 95, 98, Me, 2000 or XP*. Socket
also includes a 9-pin female/female null modem connector.
You can also reprogram your Cordless Serial Adapter manually through
commands via a terminal device. Socket's Command Set documentation
provides even more extensive options for custom configurations.
