Serial5

Intelligent Bluetooth-to-Serial

Brief Description

The AIRcable Serial5 is an intelligent serial-to-Bluetooth interface which eliminates the need for Bluetooth software on the PC and much more...

Features

  • Fully customizeable
  • Control master and slave connections
  • Restrict connectivity to customer devices
  • Security functions
  • Command line interface in BASIC
  • Runs applications in BASIC applicationson the AIRcable OS
  • DTR/DSR supported, DTR can power other devices, 5V, 50mA

Need battery? Need more range?

The AIRcable Serial5X has a rechargeable lithium polymere battery build-in and a range of 200m with our specifically optimized 4 inch antenna.

Pre-configured & Ready for Action

The AIRcable Serial5 is our, next-generation serial product, designed for optimizing serial-to-Bluetooth connections. It is much more than just a connection device.

The pre-installed cable replacement application, like other applications used in mobile phones, allows zero-configuration use as "service-slave", allowing incoming serial connections from other Bluetooth devices. Through a human readable command line interface it configures in a secure one-to-one slave or various master modes.

Fully Programmable & Configurable

The AIRcable Seria53 is programmed in BASIC and available for you (the customer) to adapt it to your particular application and needs.

The AIRcable Serial5 runs the latest AIRcable OS Operating System that allows complete customization including automatic and selective connections, configuration of PIN code, authentication, name, terminal lines etc. see programming manual. See the open source project for a snapshot of what has already been developed for the AIRcable OS!

The AIRcable Serial5 has external baud rate switches for 4800 - 115200 baud and a hardware handshake disable switch so it can be used in 3 wire serial connection applications.

The AIRcable Serial5 module has a male type DB9 connector which can be adapted to a female type connector with our included null-modem adapter that supports power-on-pin9.

In addition the module can be set into 5 different modes which allows it to be independent. One of the modes, the "service-slave" mode, allows it to work as a "AIRcable Bluetooth Service" module.

Every AIRcable Serial5 module is now shipped with a free null-modem adapter that is used to convert the male serial plug to a female serial plug and a USB-power plug cable.

See our applications section to see a real-world applications of the AIRcable Serial5.

Powering the AIRcable Serial5

The AIRcable module requires external power (min 5V, max 15V) through the DC jack but can also be powered through pin 9 of the DB9 connector (DC 5-15V). See power plug information.

110-240v Power Supply

This power supply can only be used with AIRcable Serial devices. Order this if you need an external power supply and cannot provide power to the AIRcable Serial modules through pin 9 of the DB9 connector. See power plug information.
