Bluetooth Multiple-connection Mode

PARANI USB and serial to Bluetooth converters can now be used to create multiple connections to serial port devices, without the need for an Access Point. One PARANI-SD1000U is configured as a master to communicate with PC, and can then be linked to up to 4 PARANI-SD1000 slaves to create a Bluetooth network.

Bluetooth networks can be configured with two modes of operation,
  • Multi-Drop Mode
  • Node Switching Mode

Bluetooth Multi-drop Mode

PARANI-SD1000 Multi-drop Mode

One master and up to 4 slaves can communicate with one another simultaneously in both directions.

Bluetooth Node Switching Mode

Up to 4 slaves remain connected to the master, but only one slave communicates with the master at a time. The master selects a slave to communicate with using AT commands.

Barcode Reader and Serial Printer Application Example

Step 1
First, Master SD1000 receives data from the barcode reader. Then the data is transferred to the PC.
