General description:

The Series8 is a compact unit designed to allow a user to charge 8x USB devices simultaneously and safely. The Series8 should not be confused with a standard USB charger, the Series8 is over-engineered to provide both high current charging for 8x USB devices as well as offering a terminal interface and LiveViewer App to control and monitor the connected devices via a host computer.

The Cambrionix logo on the front panel switches the Series8 through 3 modes:

  • Standard operation where the LEDs animate and display charging activity and charging ‘completed’.
  • VU Mode where the 72 LEDs form a visual representation of the different frequencies and volumes currently in the room.
  • A long press on the logo will ‘mute’ the LED operation and cause the Series8 to enter a ‘nightstand mode’. In this mode there will only be a single LED illuminated at minimum brightness.

Internally, the Series8 is microcontroller controlled which allows our unique Live Viewer app to display information about each port and also allows the user to control those ports via a simple GUI.

The Series8 is supplied with our latest firmware although updating the firmware is performed quickly and easily using our Firmware Updater App which is available as a free download. We offer new versions of firmware, from time to time, to add additional features and additional charging profiles for obscure devices which may not necessarily adhere to documented standards.

The Series8 has support for our application programming interface (API) which allows you to automate, monitor and control each port programatically using a variety of programming languages. 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 and much more.

The API consists of a service module or daemon that is loaded on the host computer. The service module is accessed via JSON-RPC calls over a TCP/IP socket. Cambrionix provides sample Python code complete with the necessary JSON library code to be able to make the necessary calls for controlling Cambrionix products that are connected to the host computer.

It is of course possible to access the API from any programming environment that has support for making JSON-RPC calls over a TCP/IP socket.

The API is available as a free download and is well documented and supported by Cambrionix engineers.

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

The Series8 is available without an MOQ and volume discounts are available at 50+ units.
