I have a system that is outputting data via its serial, and I need to relay that data to my PC wireless-ly. If I were to setup an Arduino and HC-05 at the system's side to relay the data, that would mean I need to use two serial ports. I know this could be done with SoftwareSerial library. However, I would like to know if I could set up the pairing between master and slave with arduino, then unplug the HC-05 from the Arduino, and connect it directly to the system's serial output. Would this work?
Edit for clarification:
- I do not want to use SoftwareSerial
- I do not want to use an MCU during normal operations
- I want the HC-05 to take in serial data from a system's serial, and transmit it via bluetooth to my PC
- Only during pairing configuration, will I want use an MCU (Arduino) to set it up. I want to know if the comms will still work when I take out the Arduino and connect the system's serial data output to HC-05's Rx instead.
Is this possible?
