Long range Bluetooth options

March 2016

The Bluetooth standard is defined as providing a short range wireless connection between electronic devices. As such, up to 100 meters is the official longest range required to be tested by the highest power Class 1 devices (often only under perfect conditions such as line-of-sight with no obstructions or interference).

 

Some applications and instruments (such as robotic total stations or GPS Rover receivers that are used by land surveyors) require a longer range connection than is officially defined as being required by the Bluetooth standard. Because of this, Juniper System's most recent product models integrate Bluetooth transceivers and antenna designs which provide connection ranges which far exceed the standard.

 

If a long range Bluetooth connection is needed with the rugged handheld computer, it is recommended to test with the integrated Bluetooth first. Even if our official product specifications state otherwise, you may yet find that it still provides the needed connection range. This is as described at the following web page.

If testing shows that even further range is needed, alternative external long range Bluetooth adapters and custom radio modems are available as listed starting in the middle of the following web page.

Sept 2017 - Certain re-brands of the Mesa 2 platform may now offer an alternative expansion Bluegiga WT41u long range Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR module, which replaces/disables the standard built-in Broadcom BCM43241 Bluetooth 4.0 + HS module on such units.
