All the features of the PowerPad15S but with fewer downstream USB ports and lower cost. The most advanced and feature-rich Managed-USB Charging and Data hub available at this price range and in such a compact form factor.
Widely used in USB device testing systems, retail, healthcare, and education, the PowerPad8S offers features which were previously not available at this price range including: Upgradeable FW, LiveViewer App, Application Programming Interface, High-current charging, port isolation and support for ALL USB charging profiles both now and in the future.
Each port is fault tolerant meaning that a faulty device on one USB port does not affect devices on other USB ports. The PowerPad8S has been proven in production test environments for the programming and monitoring of USB devices where high throughput is essential.
The PowerPad8S is a compact unit designed to allow a user to connect and charge 8x USB devices with a single host computer. The PowerPad8S should not be confused with a standard USB hub, the PowerPad8S is over-engineered to provide both high current charging for 8x USB devices as well as robust data transfer to the host.
The PowerPad8S is in 24/7 operation in thousands of locations worldwide enabling USB device management systems, software and production test rigs, and retail displays to operate reliably and safely for many years.
PowerPad8S 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, 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.
