General description:

The PowerPad15C is a compact unit designed to allow a user to charge 15x USB devices efficiently and safely. The PowerPad15C should not be confused with a standard USB hub or basic, low-cost charging device, the PowerPad15C is over-engineered to provide both high current charging for 15x USB devices as well as a robust control and monitoring interface plus universal and upgradeable charging profiles for all known USB chargeable devices.

The PowerPad15C is in 24/7 operation in almost every country in the world and has enabled thousands of retail displays and charging stations.

Internally, the PowerPad15C is microcontroller controlled which allows our unique API and Live Viewer app to display information about each port and also allows the user to control those ports. For instance, with the API you could automatically disable power to a port when a device is charged, or you could choose to charge devices during an off-peak electricity tarif.

Managing Your Mobile Devices

PowerPad15C is compatible with our LiveViewer App and our proprietary API for advanced hub monitoring, control, and process automation.

The Cambrionix API is available as a free download and is updated regularly. It allows you to monitor and control each port and to integrate these functions into your process, using JSON calls

With the API you can monitor current consumption of each individual port, total connection time, charging time, control the 32x front panel LEDs, turn power on/off to individual ports, emulate different charging profiles, read USB VID/PID and much more.

We also supply our LiveViewer App which allows you to monitor and control ports using a graphical user interface.
