On the hardware front Brainboxes have developed a new Bluetooth serial port adaptor to enable 'dumb' devices with RS232 serial connectors to connect wirelessly with other devices. The compact Brainboxes BL-819 is ideal for printers, scanners and other devices since it brings Bluetooth wireless technology to devices without the need to install any software.
The BL-819 Bluetooth v1.1 qualified adaptor is a Class 2 device, operating at 2dBm, which gives the device a maximum operating range of up to 30 meters. A compact and very user friendly form factor with a size of only 7.5cmx3.4cm, and a weight of 24g means that the Bluetooth adaptor can be applied to a wide variety of peripherals.
Whilst the 9-pin RS232 (male) based BL-819 adaptor does not require any software installation, the device can be easily configured via Windows or Linux systems via 3 simple and easy to use configuration utilities, without the need for a specific configuration application.
