FlexCart Configuration Options
AC Smart Bar
For budget-minded consumers, EarthWalk labs can be configured with AC power outlets in each storage compartment for use with each device’s AC adapter. But this is no basic power bar: EarthWalk has staggered the sockets in a zig-zag formation, ensuring that adapters will not block other sockets. NOTE: When using AC adapters to charge devices’ internal batteries, it is possible that all devices may not simultaneously charge. Depending on your device, this solution may require an electric timer to safely switch between groups of devices to prevent overloading the electrical circuit.
Digital AC-SMART Switching System
Deployments using devices’ AC adapters for charging can be configured with EarthWalk’s Digital AC-SMART Switching system. This system can auto-sense the amount of electrical draw required by each device’s AC adapter and safely switch between groups of devices to prevent overloading the electrical circuit. The digital smart switching system will monitor and continue increasing the number of devices that are being simultaneously charged to help shorten the total lab charging cycle.
Pre-Wired Solutions for USB Type-C
USB-C is the latest standard in charging portable devices, and EarthWalk has you covered. We can pre-wire your carts and stations with our certified USBC-PD adapters or you can supply us with your existing AC adapters—either way we’ll take care of the wiring headache for you. Literally plug-n-play as soon as your order is delivered to you. Combine USB-C with our AC-SMART system, and we can provide managed charging power for all of your devices from a single power cord, charging all your devices as quickly as possible and eliminating the worry of overloading your electrical circuits.
iCharge – Powered USB Charging for iPads, Tablets or USB-C Devices
Select EarthWalk’s iCharge package and create our pre-wired USB charging solution. The iCharge solution features a high-efficiency central power supply system with ten USB 5V 2.4A charging ports. Additional iCharge systems can be daisy-chained to increase system capacities. Pre-installed USB, USB-C or Lightning data cables in each storage compartment make deployment and support convenient.
HE-PD – High-Efficiency USBC-PD Charging System+
EarthWalk’s HE-PD package is a pre-wired USBC-PD charging solution featuring a high-efficiency central power supply system with six USBC-PD auto-sensing, multi voltage (5V,9V,12V,15V) charging ports. Additional HE-PD systems can be integrated to increase system capacities. Pre-installed USB-C or Lightning data cables in each storage compartment make deployment and support convenient.
HE-Z – High Efficiency Charging System+
This patented system provides the most energy-efficient and easy approach to charging groups of laptops+—no AC adapters needed! EarthWalk’s High Efficiency (HE) charging integrates a central power supply and control circuit board system to distribute simultaneous power to every device with up to 85% more energy efficiency than charging with AC Adapters. HE-Z charging cables can be easily swapped when devices are changed or updated and this system also allows multiple brands of devices to be stored and charged in one cart.
