USB-Link™ 2: Bluetooth Edition

The USB-Link™ 2, the next generation vehicle interface from NEXIQ Technologies, has arrived. Dependable and rugged, the new USB-Link™ 2 is five times faster than its predecessor. It has sixteen times more random access memory than the old USB-Link, and it supports heavier bus loads on simultaneous channels.

The Bluetooth module supports wireless communication via an enhanced data rate (500K b/s J1939). For even more reliability, we’ve upgraded the USB connector to a more robust, automotive grade connector with a latching mechanism. The USB-Link 2 is compatible with a wide range of OEM software applications.

The USB-Link™ 2 comes with the following:

* Latching USB Cable (PN 404032)

* 9-Pin Deutsch Adapter, 1 Meter (PN 493128)

* J1962 Adapter (16-Pin OBD II, 1 Meter (PN 493113)

Note: For best results, Class 1 (100 m range) Bluetooth® USB adapters are recommended. Class 1 adapters are recommended because of their greater operating range. See PN 405001 in the list of Accessories below.

This product is obsolete.

The USB-Link™ 2 uses Bluetooth v2.1 (a.k.a. Bluetooth Classic). Why? Because v2.1 is the fastest Bluetooth method for transferring data and also provides single, secure pairing.
Class 1 Bluetooth provides up to 100 feet of wireless freedom.
Flexible configuration supports wired or wireless connectivity.
Compatible with applications that diagnose engines, transmissions, ABS, instrument panels and more.
Reduce reprogramming times with direct USB connection.
Mixed fleet capabilities with broad protocol support.
