SimulCharge™, Voltage Converter, 3 x USB Adapter for Samsung Micro USB Mobile Devices
$79.99 / Web Price
The nSTS-vc3U provides compatible Samsung Micro USB mobile devices* with SimulCharge™, a built-in voltage converter and three USB-A ports for peripherals. SimulCharge™ ensures the mobile device can simultaneously access any USB peripherals attached to the adapter while it is charging. The adapter also features Docking Detect technology.
The nSTS-vc3U can use an external DC power source, ranging from 9 to 36 volts. The DC-DC converter steps down the input voltage to a device-friendly 5 volts for use by the nSTS-vc3U and mobile device.
How the nSTS-vc3U Works
The nSTS-vc3U adapter provides compatible Samsung Micro USB mobile devices with simultaneous charging and access to data (SimulCharge™). It features a built-in voltage converter, three USB-A ports for peripherals and Docking Detect technology.
The nSTS-vc3U’s on-board DC-DC voltage converter can take a power input of between 9 and 36 volts** and steps it down to the 5 volts required by most mobile devices***. The adapter can be used to supply power in permanent and semi-permanent installations (adhering to local electrical codes) with minimal installation cost. This eliminates the requirement for a licensed electrician to install and run a dedicated AC power line.
Power at a Distance
The adapter can also be installed up to 50 ft (15 m) from the AC power source. This means it can be installed in locations with limited electrical outlets and provides greater options for mobile device placement.
The nSTS-vc3U’s USB-A ports allow you to connect up to three peripherals, such as a scanner, printer and card reader for a tablet kiosk setup.
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 adapter comes in a beige ABS casing that protects the electronics from mild shocks and impacts, allowing it to be used in different implementations. It ships with a Micro USB to Micro USB cable to connect the mobile device. This custom LAVA cable must not be extended or replaced with a third-party one. Doing so will cause the mobile device to stop working.
*The nSTS-vc3U is not compatible with all Samsung mobile devices. Please see the list of tested Samsung devices.
**The 9-36V DC power supply is not included with the adapter and must be purchased separately.
***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. It is recommended to use the charging cable that came with the tablet. A separate power supply is not included.
