An app that allows Axicon barcode verifiers to be used on the move with either Android tablets or Android smartphones is now available from Google Play.
Free to use, this app allows anyone with an Axicon 6000, 6500 or 7000 series verifier to use it with an Android device, and record the results as easily as with a PC or laptop. The app can also be used to open the saved scan files, whichever linear barcode verifier has been used to create them.
“This new app gives our linear verifier users extra functionality, as they don’t need to use a PC or laptop to power the verifier. If it is easier to take the verifier to the product to check the barcode, then using the app with a tablet or smartphone makes this very straightforward,” explained Martin Morrison, managing director of Axicon Auto ID Limited.
Most users will need to use a USB OTG (on the go) adapter for their device, and they will need to check which one they require to connect to the verifier.
The app software is based upon the Axicon PC verifier software, so the results of the verification are displayed equally clearly, with the ISO/IEC grade together with details of the individual parameters. The saved scan files records can be transferred to a PC and form the basis of any quality control system.
