HP bt1300, Bluetooth Wireless Printer Adapter - Overview and System Requirements

HP Bbt 1300 Overview
Figure : HP bt1300
The HP bt1300 printer adapter is a wireless print device that plugs directly into the USB or parallel port of your printer. By using the HP bt1300, you can print from a desktop or laptop computer and other devices that use Bluetooth technology without using a cable. For additional information on this product, visit the HP Web site at www.hp.com/support/bluetoothprinteradapter.
Bluetooth is the name of a technology specification for small form factor, low-cost, short-range radio links between PCs, handhelds, mobile phones, and other computing and electronic devices. Bluetooth is a very low power technology that operates in the 2.4 GHz frequency band. The maximum range of operation for communication varies between devices from 10 meters (30 feet) to 100 meters (250 feet).
NOTE: All discussions, procedures, and other material in this document concerning connection and communication between devices, are referring to devices and software that use Bluetooth technology.
The communication behavior between two devices is referred to as a profile. A profile dictates what type of communication can take place between two devices. For two devices to communicate accordingly, they both have to support the same profile. The iPAQ Pocket PC-supported profiles are defined in the following sections.
Benefits and uses
The ability to form an ad hoc network of up to eight devices (known as a piconet) is one of the biggest benefits of this technology. As an example, this would mean that a piconet could be established in a conference room during a meeting to connect several devices so that information could be shared.
The fact that Bluetooth technology operates in a wireless environment means users can be much more mobile in their daily operations. For example, someone can now print to a local printer that uses Bluetooth technology instead of a network printer.
Bluetooth technology does not require a line of site between devices to establish a connection as is needed for infrared communication. Because Bluetooth operates on RF technology, the connection signal is able to pass through walls or from within a bag or briefcase.
With Bluetooth technology, an iPAQ Pocket PC user can perform tasks such as the following:
  • Synchronize information with their desktop or notebook PC
  • Exchange files with other PDAs that use Bluetooth technology.
  • Access the Internet by connecting to and dialing a mobile phone
  • Print to printers featuring Bluetooth technology.
What's included in the box
  • HP bt1300, Bluetooth wireless printer adapter
  • Power supply module
  • USB cable
  • Quick-Install Instructions
  • HP bt1300 Installation CD
Windows system requirements
To optionally configure the HP bt1300 settings using the provided Configuration Utility, your system should include the following components:
  • A PC with a 133 MHz or higher processor
  • Microsoft Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, or XP operating system
  • At least 64MB of RAM (memory)
  • At least 10MB of free hard disk space to install the software
  • A CD-ROM drive (to load the software)
  • A PC equipped with a Bluetooth USB or PCMCIA card.
    For a list of compatible Bluetooth USB, PCMCIA and PC adapter cards, visit the HP Web site at http://www.hp.com/support/bluetoothprinteradapter
  • Vendor-supplied software for your USB or PCMCIA adapter card that supports one or more of the supported profiles (OPP, BIP, BPP, HCRP, or SPP) is required to run your PC with the HP bt1300.
The HP bt1300 supports the following profiles:
  • Serial Port Profile (SPP) – Allows the use of an emulated serial port for applications that traditionally use a wired serial port interface, such as synchronizing information between an iPAQ Pocket PC and a desktop PC using Microsoft ActiveSync, or printing to a printer.
  • Object Push Profile (OPP) – Defines the process of pushing or pulling small objects such as a business card, calendar appointment, or a task from one device to another.
  • Hardcopy Cable Replacement Profile (HCRP) – Enables a device to communicate with a Bluetooth printer directly for advanced printing capabilities, including management of print jobs, access to specific printer drivers for greater control over formatting, and other printing features. Specific printer drivers are required to use this profile.
  • Basic Printing Profile (BPP) - Enables simpler printing from a device to a printer. Using this profile does not require specific printer drivers. Instead, the printer has the capability to decipher the information sent to it so that it can produce the desired format.
  • Basic Imaging Profile (BIP) – Defines a method for transferring images from one device (such as a camera) to another device (such as a desktop PC) for storage, editing, or printing.
