Pullman, WA, 99163

Press release date: September 20, 2012

PULLMAN, WA - Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. (SEL) has introduced two new wireless serial adapters, winners of the prestigious Wireless Product of the Year award at the annual UTC TELECOM 2012 meeting. The SEL-2924 and SEL-2925 BLUETOOTH Serial Adapters provide secure wireless links to remote laptops and smartphones, reducing exposure to harsh and dangerous environments for technicians and engineers.

By installing a wireless SEL serial adapter on a serial port, personnel can communicate exactly as if they were connected with a serial cable. They avoid having to enter a hazardous or crowded area, suiting up in arc-flash protective clothing, diverting traffic, or introducing tripping hazards. Both serial adapters are always secure from cyber intrusion, using BLUETOOTH v2.1 + EDR security, and require an 8- to 16-character encryption PIN.

SEL-2925 BLUETOOTH Serial Adapters are designed for permanent installation on the serial port of a meter, protective relay, controller, or other device, enabling wireless access over 100 meters (>300 feet).SEL-2924 Portable BLUETOOTH Serial Adapters are ideal for temporary use and include rechargeable batteries to support operation for over 8 hours without other sources of power. The SEL-2924 can communicate over 10 meters (>32 feet).

"Safety and efficiency are greatly improved by installing an SEL-2925 on any serial device in a dangerous or inaccessible location," said Eric Sagen, SEL product engineer for radio products. "And, any technician or engineer that commissions or maintains equipment using serial ports will benefit from having an SEL-2924 in their toolbox or laptop bag."

Both of the new SEL BLUETOOTH Serial Adapters have a base price of $129. The base SEL-2925 includes an indoor antenna; an SEL-2925 equipped with an antenna that mounts on an outdoor cabinet is priced at $159. For more information on features, benefits, and applications, please visit
