I am looking for a starting point on changing a wired measuring device from a machine tool into a bluetooth device? Answered

The below weblink will take you to a blue tooth measurement device that is already on the market.
I am looking at expanding into an area that MFGs do not want to go.  This is measuring in the machine tool.  I am trying to get a better understanding on the components needed to get started on this adventure.  Thank you for your help in advance!

I suspect machine tool is a noisier environment than bluetooth will operate very reliably in...

Don't get hung up on bluetooth. All you need is a wireless protocol. *ANY* wireless protocol.  Bluetooth is just one choice; 802.11 (wifi) is another, and there are many more.

What do you think would give us the smallest "foot print".
Making the device small will also be an issue.
Thank you for the help in advance!

I think sparkfun has a few wireless data transceiver kits that could work.  But again, you'll probably have trouble with noise from the electric motors.
