With the BlueCOM adapter, readings from a 6150AD can be transferred to a device with a Bluetooth interface (PC, pocket PC, mobile phone). The BlueCOM adapter is plugged into the probe socket of a 6150AD. As this socket is then occupied, the adapter also has a socket to which an external probe can be connected to the 6150AD. The reading from the respective active detector (built-in counter of the 6150AD or external probe) is transmitted.
The range of the BlueCOM adapter is approx. 30 m (class 2) in the open field. As Bluetooth transmission is bidirectional according to the Bluetooth specification, the distance that can be reached also depends on the other device with the Bluetooth interface. This distance can be much less.
- Class 3: up to 10 meters
- Class 2: between 20 and 30 meters
- Class 1: up to 100 meters
Bluetooth works in the 2.45 GHz frequency band, i.e. in the same frequency band as Airport WiFi (IEEE 802.11). For this reason, malfunctions or quality losses can occur when several of these systems are used simultaneously.
The Bluetooth connection is set in the BlueCOM adapter which means that a connection can only ever be established with one device at a time. The readings cannot be transferred from the 6150AD to two other devices at the same time.
