General functionality configures Blue-tooth to work in slave mode. This mode allows any external device to connect to TST100. Parameter BT Radio allows enabling or disabling Blue-tooth. There are three different settings:
- Disabled – Blue-tooth functionality will be disabled.
- Enable (hidden) – Blue-tooth functionality will be enabled, external devices will be able to connect to TST100, but no devices will be able to detect it.
- Enable (visible) – Blue-tooth functionality will be enabled and any external device will be able to detect and connect to TST100.
Local Name parameter lets user declare a visible name of TST100 to external devices. Local PIN parameter lets user configure Blue-tooth PIN of TST100 device. TST100 Blue-tooth has several different Security Modes:
- PIN only – only Local PIN will be reacquired to complete connection to TST100.
- PIN + MAC list – PIN and Authorized Devices MAC List will be checked against to allow connection to FMB120. If the external device MAC ID is in the list and correct Local PIN is entered then connection will be established, otherwise TST100 will reject connection.
- MAC list only – only Authorized Devices MAC List will be checked when trying to connect to TST100. If external device MAC ID is in the list then connection will be established, otherwise TST100 will reject connection.
- None – neither Local PIN nor Authorized Device MAC List will be checked.
Auto Connect to External Device
Auto connection functionality configures TST100 as master device, which allows connecting TST100 to an external device. TST100 currently supports these modes:
- None – disables auto connection functionality.
- Data Link – BT Data link mode is enabled by Configurator Data Link parameter: when Data Link is configured and FMB has a link with the server, paired device can send messages via Blue-tooth SPP profile directly to the server. Messages will be encoded by codec12.
TST100 supports ONE connection at a time TST100 can see up to 10 available devices. If there are more than 10 devices, the list may change with each new scan
External Name parameter works as a substring, which allows user to enter a part of the full external device name. For example, if external device name is "HandsFreeHeadset" and user enters "HandsFree" in External Name parameter window, then TST100 will be allowed to connect to an external device named "HandsFreeHeadset".
