Industrial handheld computer rethought: the modular M2Smart® platform

The innovative M2Smart®, a mobile industrial device with Android™ Industrial+ was able to convince the independent, international jury of experts with its outstanding innovative performance. The special feature of the industrial handheld computer M2Smart® is a patented sliding mechanism that allows modules to be attached quickly and without tools. A wide variety of modules, such as emergency stop buttons, keyboards, RFID readers, temperature sensors, printers and payment modules can be attached easily and without great effort and can also be adapted to customer specifications. The variety of end devices is thus significantly reduced, which provides the user with a clear advantage as well as measurable time and cost savings. ACD Elektronik GmbH has already won the iF Design Award with the M2Smart® 2020. Together with the award now received, this is a great success for this innovative product.
