M8 nP2UE Enclosure

Custom enclosure for Lenovo Tab M8 HD (TB-8505F)

$339.99 / Web Price (Tablet not included)

The M8 nP2UE enclosure provides the Lenovo Tab M8 HD with Power over Ethernet (PoE), Ethernet and two USB ports for peripherals, while also keeping it charged. It also features Docking Detect technology.

PoE provides power and data through the same Ethernet cable. This allows you to place the Lenovo Tab M8 HD up to 328 ft (100 m) from the power source. It can be installed in locations with no easily accessible AC outlets or in environments where extension cords or dedicated AC lines are prohibited, inconvenient or expensive. The M8 nP2UE is ideal for retail, hospitality, and digital signage applications.

How the M8 nP2UE Works

The M8 nP2UE is an enclosure with an integrated LAVA SimulCharge adapter for the Lenovo Tab M8 HD (TB-8505F) tablet.

The built-in LAVA nLTS-P2UE adapter provides the Lenovo tablet (sold separately) with simultaneous charging and access to data. It features Power over Ethernet (PoE), Ethernet and two USB ports for peripherals, allowing you to turn the Tab M8 HD into a full-on tablet-based kiosk. It also utilizes Docking Detect technology.

Power at a Distance with PoE

Leveraging PoE technology, the enclosure 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 tablet and network, providing a single cable solution for tablet power and data. PoE allows greater options for tablet placement as it can be used in areas with limited electrical outlets. It can be placed up to 328 ft (100 m) from the power source.

The adapter offers two USB Type-A ports for peripherals, such as a scanner, keyboard, printer or card reader. The M8 nP2UE enclosure is ideal for running tablet-based POS systems, company management systems or digital displays.

Reliable Device Connection

Docking Detect ensures the “greeting” protocols between the SimulCharge™ adapter and mobile device are executed correctly and consistently every time they are connected. This allows the adapter to be a plug-and-play technology that ensures the mobile device always operates in USB Host mode.

The black, acrylic M8 nP2UE enclosure also comes with standard VESA 100mm attachment points, which allow for easy tablet mounting and a wide array of personalized setups through VESA-standard commercial monitor arms and mounts.

*The tablet can also be powered through the adapter’s Micro USB-B port, which is rated for the standard 5 volts at 2 amps.
