Stationary HMI Terminal

AD v1 is intended to be used as a stationary HMI terminal. For example, AD v1 can be installed on a control cabinet in a plant room or it can be installed on a wall in a hospital.

Kiosk Mode

AD v1 is preinstalled with SmartXKiosk, which allows you to lock AD v1 into Kiosk mode to prevent users from accessing other apps than the one you have downloaded and selected. For more information, see SmartXKiosk Overview .

AD v1 Bundle

AD v1 is delivered in a bundle, which contains a protective frame. When assembled, the frame protects against dust, moisture, and mechanical damage. The USB cable is ordered separately from Schneider Electric.


The frame and its base do not provide protection against theft.

Installation Options

The protective frame has a base, which is equipped with hole mount patterns to support a variety of installation options. For example, AD v1 can be installed on a control cabinet, on a wall, or on a VESA stand that fits devices with a 100 x 100 mm (3.94 x 3.94 in.) hole pattern.

AD v1 Communication and Power

AD v1 can use either a wired (USB) connection or a wireless (WiFi) connection to communicate with EcoStruxure BMS servers. AD v1 can be powered either by a AS-P server, AS-B server, or USB power adapter.

For more information, see AD v1 Communication and Power .
