Safe, Reliable Charging
Just as much power as you need.
A charger with brains.
Intelligent charging to help you
Cambrionix USB hubs auto-detect attached devices and automatically adjust the current output to the highest level permitted by the device manufacturer and USB specifications USB Battery Charging V1.2.
Our intelligent charging algorithm can be updated to support new devices and charging protocols, ensuring your Cambrionix hub keeps up with market changes.
Dedicated charging profiles.
To ensure attached devices charge at their optimum rate, our USB hubs come with six charging profiles built in:
1. 2.1A (Apple)
2. BC1.2 Standard (This covers the majority of Android phones and other devices)
4. 2.1A (Apple and others with longer timeout)
5. 1.0A (Typically used by Apple)
6. 2.4A (Typically used by Apple)
We do not recommend that users change the profile settings in NVRAM (or by other means) unless they are required to offer a 'fixed profile' to their device in order to prevent the device misbehaving.
Contact us for more information about changing the profile settings on our USB hubs.
Cambrionix industrial USB hubs provides ESD, over-voltage, over-current and over-temperature protection.
Why charging at the wrong level could damage your device.
Charging devices not at their optimum charging level has a number of issues.
Firstly, the device won’t charge correctly as designed by the manufacturer. This isn’t ideal for the long-term health of the battery. But more importantly charging will not happen as fast as it could.
Take this iPad example
Requires a charger which is capable of supplying 2.1 Amps at a voltage of no less than 4.97V at the charger connector on the cart/case (when the iPad is connected and charging).
Failure to supply this amount of current at the right voltage will extend the amount of time required to charge the iPad battery. This detrimental effect can be easily demonstrated by charging an iPad, from empty to full, with an iPhone charger. An iPhone charger can only supply the iPad with 1 Amp (referred to as ’1A’).
