Confirmation from the adapter

If the adapter has been used, then the device will display a message to “Configure adapter using app”. The device will beep four (4) times if the configuration is successful. If the adapter has been previously configured, then the device will beep three (3) times only.

Adapters are configurable for one medication only

If an adapter has been previously configured for dispensing medication, then it is not possible to change its medication without returning it to automed. If you attempt to reconfigure an adapter for a different medication, then you’ll get an error message, “Wrong Medication Code”. on the app and the device will display the message, “Adapter Configured for another medication”.
