Tracker W/ Bluetooth

Postby CHRIS » Tue Dec 14, 2004 11:29 am

Do you all know anything about equiping the tracker with bluetooth capability? Do you sell the tracker with it already installed?
I understand the Bluetooth unit gets is power from the serial port on the tracker unit. What unit is being used on the instrument side for recieving the bluetooth signal? I am assuming the total station port doesnt supply power to the reciever unit. Any info you have would be appreciated
Thanks
Chris

Hi Chris,

The Bluetooth option for the Tracker works really well and yes you can purchase a Tracker with Class 1 or Class 2 Bluetooth.

The most impressive use of Bluetooth is to help elliminate the cable between the instrument and data collector. The last instrument we connected wirelessly to, was a Topcon 3007W instrument, it worked flawlessly.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Jason
What did you use on the instrument to recieve the bluetooth signal?
Have you used it on a Sokkia set 3c or a Sokkia set 3 30 3R?
Also....is the bluetooth in the Tracker unit built in or is it the flashcard version or 9pin unit?
Thanks
Chris

Hi Chris,

The instrument we connected to had Bluetooth built in.

The Bluetooth on the Tracker is built-in which is nice, because it keep the CF slot free for other uses.
