The BioLink connected to the PC can be powered from any USB port directly, or via a supplied USB cable if an RS-232 connector-equipped BioLink model is used at the PC.

Each device has a pairing button and LED that provides a quick and easy method for establishing a trusted device Bluetooth connection without the need for a PC. A four position dip switch sets the baud rate and enables or disables hardware handshaking. In a few minutes the wireless connection setup is complete.
