- Align and attach magnetic strips to back of phone.
- Connect USB adapter to your phone's USB port.
- Slide phone onto ScanPlanTM tray and onto ScanPlan USB port.
Compatible smart phones attach to the FARO® ScanPlan using magnets and a magnetic sticker, as well as a USB port adapter. Follow these instructions to make sure your phone fits correctly.
Preparing the Phone
Open the phone tray on the top of the ScanPlan, pressing gently to click the tray into place. Note: Magnets are used to connect your phone to the ScanPlan and are located behind the tray screen near the middle divider.
Attach the metallic sticker to the back of your phone at the place were the magnets will contact it.
Note: If you have a very thick protective case on your phone, the charging port may not align with the ScanPlan port. Remove the phone case or replace with a thinner case.
Three magnetic USB adapters are provided with the ScanPlan.
Find the adapter that fits your phone’s charging port and carefully insert it into the port.
USB tethering must be activated to connect to the ScanPlan. The app will automatically redirect you to the right settings page (Settings < Connections < Mobile Hotspot and Tethering). Start the app and choose USB connection. Activate USB Tethering. Note: In Android systems this step must be done each time the phone is reconnected.
The phone will ask for confirmation that you want to trust the device. Confirm, and the connection will complete.
The first time you connect you must activate connection sharing via USB. Go to Settings > Personal Hotspot and activate the personal hotspot. This will allow a connection between ScanPlan and the iOS Device. Note: Choose the WLAN Password carefully as your phone can now also operate as a mobile access point and share its connection
Connecting Your Phone
Switch on the ScanPlan by pressing the power button. The LED on the button will blink while booting, and will stop blinking when the ScanPlan is ready to scan.
Switch on your smartphone. Flip open the phone tray and press gently until it clicks into place.
Place your smartphone in the tray. Magnets in the tray will attach it firmly.
Position the phone so that the USB port aligns with the magnetic USB connector in the bottom of the tray.
The phone is properly aligned when the phone’s battery symbol shows that the phone is charging.
