Usage Notes

DX30 Application Developers and Users shall make note of below conditions while developing or using DX30 application.

  1. Users are expected to Pair a new DX30 to Mobile Terminal using "Scan and Pair|" application. By design "DX30 Scan and Pair" application (APK) removes existing DX30 pairing with Mobile Terminal when a user attempts to pair a new DX30 with Mobile Terminal. i.e. at any point of time there will be only one DX30 paired with Device.

  2. A DEX Retrofit Application may receive unintended data in form of AT commands if Application does a close and quick re-open of connection with DX30, Application shall ignore such data.
