Using Bluetooth Interface in Test & Measurement Tool

The Bluetooth® interface is supported for use in the Test & Measurement Tool. The same functionality is available there as in the core toolbox, as described in Bluetooth Interface Overview.

To use the Bluetooth support in the Test & Measurement Tool, select the Bluetooth node in the instrument tree and right-click Scan for bluetooth devices. For help on using it in the Test & Measurement Tool, see the Help within the tool by selecting the Bluetooth node in the tree and reading the Help panel.

    Note:   When using the Bluetooth support in the Test & Measurement Tool, please note that you may need to restart your device after you have done the scan. For any Lego Mindstorm robot to be identified correctly, it has to be restarted after scanning. You may also have to restart other Bluetooth devices after the scan as well.

Troubleshooting

If you are having trouble using the Bluetooth interface in the Test & Measurement Tool, try these steps.

  • Check that the Bluetooth device supports the Serial Port Profile (SPP). We do not support other Bluetooth profiles such as File Transfer Profile (FTP).

  • Make sure that the Bluetooth service on the device is turned on.

  • Make sure that the Bluetooth device is paired with your computer.

  • If you are using a Lego Mindstorm NXT brick, note that the NXT brick has to be restarted after scanning for Bluetooth devices from the Test & Measurement Tool.

  • If you still cannot connect to the Bluetooth device, try unplugging and replugging the Bluetooth adaptor.
