qIDmini UHF RFID
qIDmini is a UHF RFID reader with linear polarization. Gonector can use qIDmini to read RFID tags on demand or let it automatically run a script when a new RFID tag is recognized.
This enables you to create a FileMaker mobile app for iPhone or iPad that can seamlessly scan UHF RFID tags, commonly used in warehouses and stores.
Reading NFC Tags
Every iPhone since version 7 acts as an NFC chip and also can read NFC tags that are formatted as NDEF. Gonector now makes this feature available to FileMaker.
You can create your own FileMaker app for iPhone 7 or newer that can seamlessly read data from NFC tags. All this without need for any other hardware or applications.
Linea Pro And Infinea
Linea Pro and Infinea are multi-purpose scanners that attache as a case to your iPhone or iPad. The devices scan barcodes, 2D codes, magnetic cards, and scans and writes high frequency RFID tags, including NFC. Gonector talks to the devices directly in the backend and scanning can be initiated either from the plug-in and from the device.
By not interfering with the user interface or your layouts, Gonector lets you seamlessly integrate these professional hardware scanners into the FileMaker-based point of sale solution.
Any RS-232 equipped digital scale, such as LESAK crane scales and Ohaus lab and industrial scales can be easily connected to an iPhone or iPad by up the BlueSnap Bluetooth adapter. Gonector lets your FileMaker app talk to BlueSnap in the background and get the date brom the scale either on demand or whenever the scale send it.
Whether at the point of sale, in a warehouse, or anywhere else, Gonector lets your custom mobile FileMaker app directly gather data from digital scales to save your time and prevent human error.
Bluetooth Mobile Receipt Printers
Out of the many mobile printers available we found the Italian brand CUSTOM to provide reliable devices which easily connect to an iPad or iPhone. So we made Gonector talk to these printers and print text, barcodes, QR codes and pictures exactly as requested.
By using Gonector and the CUSTOM mobile printer you can print professional-looking receipts from your mobile FileMaker app easily and reliably.
Mobile Payment Terminals
Gonector lets your app talk directly to mobile payment terminals from Infinite Peripherals (for Noth America) and Ingenico (for Europe).
By seamlessly integrating payment terminals you can securely process credit card payments on the go directly from within your custom app, including NFC and Apple Pay.
