FMB900 Bluetooth settings
General functionality configures Blue-tooth to work in slave mode. This mode allows any external device to connect to FMB900.
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 FMB900, 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 FMB900.
Local Name parameter lets user declare a visible name of FMB900 to external devices.
Local PIN parameter lets user configure Blue-tooth PIN of FMB900 device.
FMB900 Blue-tooth has several different Security Modes:
- PIN only – only Local PIN will be reacquired to complete connection to FMB900.
- PIN + MAC list – PIN and Authorized Devices MAC List will be checked against to allow connection to FMB900. If the external device MAC ID is in the list and correct Local PIN is entered then connection will be established, otherwise FMB900 will reject connection.
- MAC list only – only Authorized Devices MAC List will be checked when trying to connect to FMB900. If external device MAC ID is in the list then connection will be established, otherwise FMB900 will reject connection.
- None – neither Local PIN nor Authorized Device MAC List will be checked.
Auto connection functionality configures FMB900 as master device, which allows connecting FMB900 to an external device. FMB900 currently supports these modes:
- None – disables auto connection functionality.
- Hands Free or OBDII – FMB900 starts searching for an external hands free headset. If FMB900 finds a device which matches user defined External MAC or External Name then FMB900 will try to pair with that external device. If the external device asks for PIN then FMB900 will send user defined External PIN. After successfully pairing FMB900 will connect to paired device.
- 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.
| FMB900 supports ONE connection at a time.|
FMB900 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 FMB900 will be allowed to connect to an external device named "HandsFreeHeadset".
