BioLink Bluetooth Wireless Communication

BioLink Wireless Communication for Research International products

BioLink Bluetooth RF data radio technology is the ideal tool for the wireless networking of Research International's samplers and biological sensing instruments.

The BioLink device draws all of its operating power from the RS-232 data interface on Research International samplers and detection instruments, and has all radio functions built-in. The BioLink connected to the PC can be powered from any USB port directly, or via a supplied USB cable if an RS-232 connector-equipped BioLink model is used at the PC.

BioLink Wireless Communication for Research International products

Each device has a pairing button and LED that provides a quick and easy method for establishing a trusted device Bluetooth connection without the need for a PC. A four position dip switch sets the baud rate and enables or disables hardware handshaking. In a few minutes the wireless connection setup is complete.

Each RF node is assigned a unique Bluetooth address, allowing a BioLink Bluetooth Base Station (also available from Research International) to communicate discretely with different system nodes. For a BW application, these nodes might include a dry biotrigger; a wet air sampler; and a bioidentifier. The Bluetooth BioLink Base Stations are network enabled so they can be either connected to a host PC with an ethernet cable or connected directly to the internet.

Notes:

  1. If only 1 remote node (device) is to be used, two data radios are needed: one at the remote node, the second at the PC.
  2. If more than 1 node is to be used with a PC, or direct connection to the Internet, then a base station must be purchased plus one node radio per remote device.
