Worlds first user-upgradeable, truly universal USB charging component.
Following on from the phenomenal success of their C3 Apple iPad / iPod Touch Charge and sync product range, Cambrionix is delighted to announce the release of the new U8S 8-Port Universal sync / charge component. The Cambridge based designer of professional USB products has released the new U8S with both Mac and Windows options, a truly universal product for all charge and sync requirements.
Flexible and Future-proofed
The U8S is so flexible you can charge multiple device types simultaneously. Tablets, Cellphones, MP3 players, Handheld Game consoles, 3D Glasses, e-readers, in fact, the U8S can deal with pretty much anything that can be charged via a USB port. Whatever device is connected, the internal (user upgradeable via the Cambrionix firmware updater application) database will ensure 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.
The Cambrionix U8S gives you 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 U8S perfect for use in Schools, Library’s, Charging Kiosks, Hotels and Restaurants, conference centre’s, Airline lounges, anywhere you can think of where your customer service can be enhanced by offering universal charging facilities.
Monitoring and Security
The U8S 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 U8S, even if the connected devices are all from different manufacturers. Cambrionix engineers have also added a new security feature which can be used to trigger an audible or visual alarm should devices be unplugged from the U8S once armed.
For the Cart / Case manufactures, like all products from Cambrionix, the U8S component accelerates your time to market in all charge / sync developments. The Low-cost and high performance of the U8S will help you expand your product portfolio into these new, and fast growing markets.
The U8S unit can be easily customised 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.
Our customers include some of the world’s largest companies operating in IT, Cellphones, Education and many other industries. Our products are being used by many of our clients to provide charge and sync to Schools and Universities, Hotels and Airlines, Libraries and Museums as they roll-out handheld devices, and services globally.
