SimulCharge™, PoE, Ethernet, 2 x USB Adapter with RBM Technology for USB-C Mobile Devices
$159.99 / Web Price
The eSynC-P2UE provides compatible USB-C mobile devices* with SimulCharge™, Power over Ethernet (PoE), Ethernet and two USB-A ports for peripherals. SimulCharge™ ensures the mobile device can simultaneously access the adapter’s wired network connection and any USB peripherals attached to the adapter while it is charging. The adapter also features Network Recovery & Battery Modulation (RBM) technology.
Battery Modulation protects the mobile device’s battery from constant overcharging, which can degrade the battery over time and shorten its lifespan. Meanwhile, Network Recovery can recover a wired Ethernet connection if it unexpectedly drops out.
The adapter provides 10.4 watts of charging power and a reliable 10/100-capable network connection through a single CAT5/5e/6 Ethernet cable connected to a PoE-enabled switch or injector.
How the eSynC-P2UE Works
The eSynC-P2UE adapter provides compatible USB-C mobile devices* with simultaneous charging and access to data (SimulCharge™). It features Power over Ethernet, Ethernet, two USB-A ports for peripherals and RBM technology.
Power at a Distance with PoE
Leveraging Power over Ethernet (PoE), the adapter does not require a dedicated AC source, as it can be fully powered through its built-in Ethernet port**. Simultaneously, this port can provide 10/100 Ethernet connectivity between the mobile device and network, providing a single cable solution for mobile device power and data. PoE allows greater options for mobile device placement as it can be used in areas with limited electrical outlets, as it can be placed up to 328 ft (100 m) from the power source.
The SimulCharge™ adapter offers two USB-A ports. This allows customers to attach USB-enabled peripherals, such as a scanner and printer for a tablet kiosk setup.
Robust Battery Protection
Battery Modulation protects the mobile device from overcharging and its battery from bloating, which can cause severe damage to the device. The LAVA Tablet Manager (LTM) app, installed on the mobile device, monitors the battery level and users can set upper and lower charging thresholds for the battery.
When the battery charges to the higher threshold, the adapter turns off charging and the mobile device is allowed to discharge until it hits the lower threshold. This ensures the battery never overcharges, even if it is left plugged in 24/7. Battery Modulation extends the lifespan of both the battery and device for a better return on investment.
Wired Network Recovery and Other Features
Network Recovery provides a failsafe system to recover the wired network connection if it drops out. If the connection is lost for more than a few minutes, the LTM app sends a command to reset the Ethernet portion of the adapter to re-establish the connection. It’s the equivalent of unplugging the Ethernet cable and then plugging it back in. This feature is also configurable through the LTM app.
RBM also features Screen Brightness Management, which lets customers set a daytime and night-time brightness level through the LTM app, as a way to combat overheating. This allows for the mobile device to have a bright display during the day when the business is open and a dimmer display at night after it closes. The display is one of the biggest sources of heat for a mobile device. Excess heat puts additional strain on the battery and can also accelerate battery bloating. Dimming the display during off-hours significantly reduces its heat generation, prolonging the lifespan of the device.
The adapter comes in a black ABS casing that protects the electronics from mild shocks and impacts, allowing it to be used in different implementations. It does not ship with the USB-C to USB-C cable required to connect the adapter to the mobile device. This cable can be purchased separately from LAVA or a third-party supplier.
*The eSynC-P2UE is not compatible with all USB-C mobile devices. Please see the list of tested devices.
**The mobile device can also be powered through the adapter’s Micro USB-B port, which is rated for the standard 5 volts at 2 amps. A charging cable is not included but any regulated 5-volt power supply capable of at least 2 amperes can be used.
