EBL Bluetooth Unit
The Bluetooth Unit "EBL" is a complete unit to study a Bluetooth communication network between two autonomous devices and a computer through a Bluetooth Dongle.
The Bluetooth Unit, "EBL", operates in conjunction with a computer, which is connected with the Bluetooth Dongle, that allows communicating and programming the Bluetooth Devices to perform a simple Bluetooth network.
The two Bluetooth Devices (included in the supply) have a LCD display that shows the current state of the devices (linking status, input messages, output messages, etc).
The "EBL" allows to perform a complete Bluetooth link between the computer and the Bluetooth Devices and to get familiar with all the procedure involved in the configuration of a Bluetooth link (configuring the link, scanning new devices, configuring the communication parameters, programming the Bluetooth Devices, encrypting the communication, etc).
This Computer Controlled Unit is supplied with the EDIBON Computer Control System (SCADA), and includes: The unit itself + a Control Interface Box + a Data Acquisition Board + Computer Control, Data Acquisition and Data Management Software Packages, for controlling the process and all parameters involved in the process.
