It features software-adjustable transmit power to extend the Bluetooth reach up to 300 ft. The PSI-WL-RS232-RS485/BT can be used as a simple wire and cable replacement in point-to-point applications or in point-to-multipoint configurations. One master will support up to seven slave devices. The FHSS (frequency hopping spread spectrum) devices operate in the 2.4-GHz ISM band, suitable for worldwide use in industrial machine-to-machine and remote/temporary diagnostics and programming applications.
