FreeRider 4 Switch iPAD Interface


The FreeRider-IPAD4 is a switch access interface device to provide for switch input to iPads and iPhones.

Using the Bluetooth communications between your device and the FreeRider interface you are able to switch control AAC applications as well as control your device.



The FreeRider iPAD Interface Unit incorporates a integral lithium ion battery which is charged via the USB connector using the supplied USB lead. Whilst charging the charging lamp is illuminated blue, when the charge is complete the lamp is extinguished. In use the FreeRider unit monitors the battery charge and when  a recharge is required the unit will give a short beep sound and flash the low battery lamp.

Connecting to the iPad Bluetooth connection is indicated by the ON/Connected lamp changing from flashing red to steady green.

You can connect up to 4 switches to your FreeRider. Each switch corresponds to a keyboard key as is listed in the table below.
