ASR-020D of AsReader series is a case type bar code reader that can be used by attaching to the iPhone / iPod touch. Use and to the other terminals Lightning connection, in consideration of the response to such successor, has become a separate structure separating the main body and the case portion. In addition to the various one-dimensional bar code, a two-dimensional bar code PDF417, QR Code, Aztec, RSS, and Composite, also supported to the post for the bar code such as the United States and the United Kingdom.

※1 Varies depending on barcode type
※2 Number of times when the BEEP sound, vibration and illumination are all set to ON.
※3 Number of times when the BEEP sound, vibration and illumination are all set to ON. The decoder CPU has been changed (dual core → quad core) from ASR-020D. This allows ASR-020D-V2/ASR-020D-V3/ASR-020D-V4 higher reading accuracy. While, the battery retention time is shortened due to increased standby current.
※4 Standard iPhone® 2A charger is recommendd for the magnetic charging cable.
※5 iPhone® and AsReader battery will be recharged simultaneously. iPhone® and AsReader battery will be recharged in 3.5h and 2h respectively in simultaneous recharging mode.
※6 A specialised SDK for communication via Lightning is available for download.
※7 A specialised SDK for communication via Lightning is available for download. SDK is unnecessary when using AsReader in HID mode.
※8 Excluding protrusions
※9 The iPhone® screen may break depending on the drop angle.

The User shall not, with respect to the Target Software and the SDK, perform any of the following acts:
If the User needs support with the API Specification document or the content of the Sample Programs, or with the development of User Software, the Company is able to provide this support to the User for a fee.
Furthermore, the contents and conditions of such support shall be determined in a separate contract to be signed by both the User and the Company.
Upon termination of this License, the User shall immediately dispose of any API Specification documents, Libraries, Sample Programs and Modification Programs, and any copies thereof.
there are 3 types of SDKs depending on the development period and corresponding model numbers, For Dock-Type and COMBO-Type.
・ DOCK SDK4 (4.x.x)
・ COMBO SDK (3.x.x)
・ DOCK SDK (2.x.x)
If you are developing a new application, please use DOCK SDK4.x.x
Please refer to each model number web page for the corresponding SDK.
The sample application is meant to be a reference during actual development.
We cannot give any guarantees on its workability and/or on the source codes and comments etc.
Futhermore, our engineers can also offer support during app development and/or fully develop your app for you (both for a fee).
