NEW: supporting Bluetooth 4.2 with long range secure BLE and 15 connections at the same time!
The AIRcable Host XR4 is the forth generation of our long range Bluetooth® and Bluetooth Smart® dongles for PCs and MACs as well as Linux and embedded Linux.
It is based on our famous long-range (10 km-class) technology. It is equipped with an extremely-powerful, highly-sensitive Bluetooth transmitter, can achieve an unparalleled range of up to 30 km (dish antennas)! With a standard 9 dBi omni-directional antenna, the extended range is up to 2 km, and with the 18 dBi directional antenna, it is up to 10 km. Additionally, given its high sensitivity, it can extend the range of weaker Bluetooth devices like cell phones and headsets by hundreds of meters. Our customers frequently report range of 100-200m to a standard smartphone.
With most other devices only capable of obtaining a range of 10 meters or less, no other Bluetooth device comes even close. Plus, this long-range Bluetooth transmitter connects to any computer with a Bluetooth connection and can handle virtually any Bluetooth profile available. Uses include standard data, streaming data, headsets communication (like Skype calls), stereo headphone communication and Bluetooth Speakers.
This latest edition (XR4.2) extends the range to Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices with the same performance. Additionally we upped the number of connections supported at the same time to 15 BLE links, (not just 2 or 5) allowing real world IoT support for your favorite devices or sensors.
