The Shark is an efficient and economical solution in converting your data logger or industrial equipment into a Bluetooth® enable communicaition instrument.
The Shark is Stevens' RS232 or RS485 wireless serial cable replacement product designed using Bluetooth® wireless technology for industrial and the environmental monitoring applications. Its robust design will handle many extreme environmental conditions and power management concerns. It uses the Bluetooth® SPP (serial port profile) protocol to replace RS232 or RS485 cables. The Shark will communicate with another Shark or with any Bluetooth® enabled device.
The Shark is a class 1 Bluetooth® radio and achieves at least 100 meter range of communications. The class 1 radio combined with an external antenna attachment provides the user with specified antenna options to maximizes the communication range with other Bluetooth® wireless enabled devices. Unlike other RS232 adapters using Bluetooth® techology that just establish a Bluetooth® connection and then give the user the ability to send serial data, Stevens designed The Shark to emulate the behavior of a serial port that has a serial cable connection. The Shark accomplishes this by turning the COM port on only when a connection using Bluetooth® wireless technology is established. This is how a serial cable would behave, and this is how The Shark's serial cable emulation behaves.
