Emeryville, CA – Redpark Product Development is now shipping what it calls the industry’s first DEX Cable for iPhone and iPad.

The Redpark DEX Cable is used by route drivers in the grocery and vending machine industries, Redpark said in a news release. It provides a way to connect iPhone and iPad to a vending machine or to a grocery store’s computer system for direct store delivery.

“iPhone and iPad are replacing specialty handheld devices in the route delivery industry,” Redpark president Mike Ridenhour said. “Some of the world’s largest beverage companies have developed their own route accounting apps for iPhone and iPad. Route accounting apps are also available from commercial app developers. Our DEX Cable completes the solution by enabling these apps to connect to systems in the field.”
