Handheld Data Terminal M2Smart® ACD Industrial

M2Smart® ACD: the Modular Device for Industrial Applications
The M2Smart® ACD is a modularly structured terminal for industrial applications with various attachable modules that can be connected without any tools using an insert/slide mechanism. The new patented modularity makes the M2Smart® ACD mobile terminal with Android™ Industrial+ 6.0.1 as the operating system a lean yet highly robust, intelligent and efficient solution for mobile industrial applications. The M2Smart® ACD can be used to control machines or vehicles, for example, but also for data logging and to read, transmit or visualize data. Add to that modularly and there is practically no limit to the versatile range of applications.


The basic module with sturdy main housing and large 4.8“ display (capacitive) offers numerous options related to the new solution patented by ACD as well as options for modularity and standard interfaces. A wide range of attachable modules is available including illuminated Emergency Stop switches (also in combination with a three-stage enabling switch), handles, distance sensors and temperature modules as well as different keyboard variants and sensor or interface modules. The attachable modules mentioned here as well as other modules can also be adapted and implemented for specific customer requirements. Keyboard variant M2Key16 and temperature module M2Temperature for measuring core and surface temperatures are already currently in development. The M2Safety module, an illuminated Emergency Stop switch with three-stage enabling switch, guaranteed functional safety and specific interfaces can be used with M2Connect. The individual modules can be exchanged at any time without a tool using the upper and lower insert/slide mechanisms, thus allowing for highly efficient, economical and flexible work.


The modular architecture of the ACD M2Smart® makes it flexible and universal so it can be used for a wide range of different processes in your company and will be accepted and appreciated by your employees. Eliminating cables ensures more ergonomic work and thanks to cross-format operation with an integrated position sensor for display rotation, the M2Smart® ACD is equally well suited for left-handed or right-handed users.


The Android™ Industrial+ 6.0.1 operating system ensures work free of interruptions as well as modern user guidance familiar to users of Android™ smartphones. The Android™ Industrial+ version can be selectively adapted to customer requests at any time. ACD takes responsibility for support, incorporates security updates and provides assistance with troubleshooting as well as rapid response to security gaps.


The integrated quick-change lithium-ion battery with 22.8 Wh ensures long operating times up to 20 hours free of interruptions and can be changed during ongoing operation. Good technical performance is ensured in part by a high-performance Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 410E QuadCore ARM Cortex processor with 8 GB Flash memory and 1 GB RAM.
