IL-based Infinite Peripherals has developed an iOS application that enables basic scanning into other iOS applications using a keyboard extension.
ScanBoard is a keyboard emulator from Infinite Peripherals that allows any iOS application to receive barcodes from Infinite Peripherals scanners, including the popular Linea Pro® and Infinea Tab® product lines. Scanned barcodes will populate the active application’s text field via keystroke emulation, and the app is proven to work within multiple iOS applications including Excel®, Google™ Sheets, Safari®, FileMaker® and Notes.
Requiring iOS 8.2 or later and available for free on the Apple App Store℠, ScanBoard is an ideal keyboard wedge solution for the Linea Pro and Infinea Tab products. Users simply install the ScanBoard app, add the keyboard to the iOS keyboard list, open any iOS app that has an active text field, choose the ScanBoard keyboard and begin scanning.
By combining ScanBoard with a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) application, barcodes also can be forwarded wirelessly to a remote PC or Macintosh® computer.
IPC’s lightweight, durable Linea Pro adds a barcode scanner, capable of reading 1D or 2D barcodes, and a magnetic stripe reader to the iPod touch® and iPhone®. The Infinea Tab and Infinea Tab M add the barcode scanner and magnetic stripe reader to the iPad®, iPad mini℠ or iPad Air®. This combination facilitates multiple mobile enterprise functions, including inventory management, point-of-sale, healthcare data access and labeling, ticketing and entry access, lead tracking, inspection/work flow, dispatch and time/labor.
