CR1000 logger with RS232-bluetooth adapter

andrea.sonc Oct 14, 2016 12:42 AM

Good morning,

i have a question about the use of a RS232-bluetooth adapter applied to a CR1000 logger.

Is there anyone that has already tried this solution? Could be compatibility problem?

How i have to modify connection option in the software on the pc?

There is a specific adapter model that is better to use? 

Sorry for all this question condensed in one post and thank in advance to everybody for the support!!

Just about any adapter that supports Bluetooth SPP will work.

The one we currently recommend is the Airconsole 2.0. Use it in conjunction with our part 17394 USB to RS232 cable.


It works well with our Loggerlink app.

Thank you for  the support.

So you suggest to use a serial-USB converter and then a USB-bluetooth adapter.

How is powered the device you suggested? What do you mean with "that supports Bluetooth SPP"?

thank you

SPP means "Serial Port Profile". The connected bluetooth device appears in the software as a serial port.

The Airconsole has an internal rechargeable battery.

Hello - I have purchased the airconsole 2.0 to use the bluetooth communication.  The kit comes with DB9 adapters for the cable which includes the bluetooth dongle.  How is the airconsole supposed to be connected to the CR1000 datalogger?  I ask this because of the previous statement of using serial-usb adapter 17394.  If the 17394 adapter is used, the bluetooth dongle cable would not be used on the airconsole.  Can the DB9 Std or Null adapter be used on the bluetooth dongle cable?

The airconsole documents also say that the RS232 connector puts out 5V.  Can the supplied airconsole bluetooth cable be used with an optical isolator?

Same question as above????

JDavis May 1, 2017 09:15 AM

When you use a wireless adapter, you don't need to use an optical isolator for protection. For connecting to CSIO, an SC32B does work fine with it.  

The baud rate on the bluetooth is limited, so the Wifi is recommended.

RJ45 adapters can be used, but you have to be sure to get the right type. Air Console only sells the female adapter, so you would need to use a male to male null modem cable with it. It is simplest to use the 17394 cable, since customers should have one anyway.

is it possible to connect the Airconsole to a CSIO port with a SC115 instead of using a SC32B and USB to serial cable?

I have limited space in my logger box, so would be good to avoid the 6' usb-serial cable

JDavis Jan 15, 2018 12:54 PM

The SC115 would not work. The Airconsole does not have a USB driver for it.

You may be able to find a shorter USB to RS232 cable. Just make sure it uses a FTDI chip.

Hi JDavis,

a couple of posts ago you mentioned that the baud rate on bluetooth is limited.

I would like to use Loggerlink on an Android table to view a data table that streams in data from an RS232 device once a second.  Do you think the bluetooth baudrate would be fast enought to have the display of the table update every  second?

Dear All, 

You can use all your RS232 port included dataloggers with this IOGEAR Bluetooth Serial Adapter.

No configuration needed. Just Plug & play.

Aung Htet, for the adapter you are using. does it have a battery or does it have to get plugged in for it to run?

ys4 Jul 29, 2020 11:42 AM

@Aung Htet can you share how you connected the IOGEAR adapter (what baud rate, etc), what datalogger you are using with that adapter, and what version of loggernet? I have the same adapter but can't get it working...
