ACD EasyToConnect 2.0

The ACD EasyToConnect 2.0 app is a software product that makes it easy to connect a BLE pairing device (Bluetooth Low Energy pairing device), like smartphone, Mobile Handheld Computer, forklift terminal, with the HasciSE backhand scanner and transferring data via the HID profile. Furthermore, new firmware versions can be uploaded to the HasciSE and information can be read out.

  • This is an app for Android™, Windows® and Linux (Ubuntu/IGEL OS) which is used for easy pairing between our backhand scanner and another device as well as for transferring data via the HID profile.
  • With the Android™ App new firmware versions can be uploaded to the HasciSE and information can be read out.
  • The app runs on the other device. The opposite devices can be forklift terminals, mobile devices, smartphones, etc. The pairing between HasciSE and the opposite device takes place via Bluetooth.
  • For pairing, a pairing barcode is displayed in the app. By scanning this pairing barcode with the HasciSE, pairing is performed. The button “Disconnect” can be used to interrupt an existing pairing between HasciSE and the opposite device.
  • ACD devices are paired automatically, even without confirmation of a pairing request.

Complementary Software Tools – ACD Android™ Apps

Increase of usability: KioskMode/KioskBrowser

To round off the Android™ Industrial+ software package, ACD offers its own supporting Android™ apps to further strengthen usability. The ACD KioskMode, for example, is an alternative to the standard “home screen”. By using the ACD KioskMode, the user only gets access to certain apps pre-selected by the device administrator, which prevents unwanted access to other applications or to the Android™ system. The ACD KioskMode is password protected and can be flexibly customized. The administrator has a wide range of configuration options (e.g. navigation bar, system information, quicksettings, notifications). Particularly successful is the combination with the ACD KioskBrowser, which is a restrictive web browser for Android™ devices in restricted device mode. Here the browser line is deactivated, so that with browser applications the user does not have the possibility to change the page and visit unwanted pages by a link input. The end user can only access certain web pages – selected by the administrator – and can only navigate through links in this web page. This is particularly useful for browser applications.

Other software tools

Further software tools such as the ACD ScanConfig (easy configuration of the integrated scanner), the ACD SystemApp (clear display of system information and execution of system updates), the ACD Easy-ToConfig (quick initial setup of devices and easy transfer of the configuration to other devices) or the ACD M2UHF-RFID App (reading, writing and localization of UHF-RFID tags) complete the extensive portfolio of mobile handheld computers. In the case of forklift terminals, the ACD TerminalSettings as a diagnostic and configuration program for battery monitoring and system parameters should also be mentioned. The mentioned software tools are available without additional costs. Independent of this, ACD offers all standard Android™ interfaces to enable the use of common Mobile Device Managers (SOTI®, etc.) without any problems.
