Cambrionix 8 Port Universal Charge Component (U8C)



Cambrionix 8 Port Universal Charge Component (U8C)




The U8C is a charge only component.

  World's first user-upgradeable, truly universal USB-charging component.
Flexible and Future-proofed
The U8C is an 8-port charging component that offers supreme flexibility. Tablets, Cellphones, MP3 players, Handheld Game consoles, 3D Glasses, e-readers... any eight devices types can be charged simultaneously here via USB.
As each device is connected, the internal database ensures the correct charging profile is used, maintaining battery performance and extending battery life. The future proof design ensures that even if you upgrade or buy additional devices in the future, you\'ll always be able to charge and sync them (users can take advantage of the Cambrionix firmware updater application).
Total Control
The Cambrionix U8C allows for total control of individual ports via the host computer and a terminal application or programming script if required, without the need for additional hardware. Port monitoring via a terminal application allows a real time view of all of the port states including the charging profile used, the current being consumed by each device, security status and unauthorised removal plus many other parameters. This total control over individual port function makes the U8C perfect for use in Schools, Libraries, Charging Kiosks, Hotels and Restaurants, conference centres, Airline lounges... anywhere you can think of where customer service could be enhanced by offering universal charging facilities.
Monitoring and Security
The U8C can also be linked to an LCD display, or LEDs, to provide visual indication of individual port and battery status. The charging status indication operates reliably no matter what devices are connected to the U8C, even if the connected devices are all from different manufacturers. A security feature can be used to trigger an audible or visual alarm should devices be unplugged from the U8C once armed.
For the Cart / Case manufactures, like all products from Cambrionix, the U8C component accelerates your time to market in all charge / sync developments. The Low-cost and high performance of the U8C will help you expand your product portfolio into these new, and fast growing markets.
The U8C unit can be easily customized for unique use with an option to re-brand the firmware updater application and LCD text. The options available allow you to use an off-the-shelf product, and at the same time, offer a product designed to meet the individual needs of your clients and customers.
The image shows the U8C-ext variant which allows the use of an external, 100W 12V laptop-style PSU.
Compatibility is constantly being updated with new MP3 players, tablet devices, cellphones, 3D glasses, GPS watches, Sat Nav devices, and many more.
