RBM

Network Recovery and Battery Modulation

RBM technology found in LAVA's e Series adapters combines two modes, Network Recovery and Battery Modulation

Have you noticed a decline in your device's battery life?

Overcharging of Lithium Ion batteries for short or medium amounts of time can lead to lower battery capacity, but long periods of overcharging (as seen in permanent or semi-permanent installations) can lead to catastrophic battery bloating and device damage.

Does your wired network connection drop out even though it’s still plugged in?

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a standard network management protocol that is used to automatically assign IP addresses, and other network parameters, to devices configured for dynamic IP.

Usually when a DHCP Server request fails, a mobile device repeats the request several times for 30 to 60 seconds. In the event this initial request fails, Samsung’s TCP/IP implementation makes no further attempts – with no valid addressing information, no network connectivity is possible.

Our Solution

RBM helps you protect your tablet from overcharging and bloated batteries

RBM combines Battery Modulation that protects your mobile device from overcharging and battery bloating with a Network Recovery feature to restore a dropped wired Ethernet connection. Built into LAVA’s e Series adapters, RBM uses the LAVA Tablet Manager (LTM) app installed on the mobile device to monitor its battery level and turns off charging at preset levels, protecting the battery’s lifespan. (The LTM app also monitors the wired network connectivity.)

Increased longevity means a better ROI, while SimulChargeTM ensures the mobile device continues to do what you need it to do.

How Battery Modulation Works

Battery Modulation ensures the mobile device’s battery never overcharges, which prolongs it lifespan

Step One.

Install the LTM app onto the mobile device. It is available both through the Google Play Store and as part of the LAVA Software Release Package, which includes a copy of the Installation Manual for your eSynC or eSTS adapter.

Step Two.

Go into the Battery Modulation Settings in the LTM app and configure the Upper Charge Boundary and Lower Charge Boundary. These settings indicate in percentages the range of which the mobile device’s battery will charge.

Plug In.

The LTM app will monitor the mobile device’s battery level. When its battery level reaches the configured Upper Charge Boundary, the app will send a command to the adapter to turn off charging.

Keep Plugged In.

The adapter will then let the mobile device discharge until it hits the Lower Charge Boundary, where the app will send another command to restart charging.

Relax.

Mimicking the standard charge cycles of a tablet, battery modulation ensures power is drained then reloaded which prevents overcharging, stops batteries from bloating, and extends the life of your tablet.

How Network Recovery Works

Network Recovery helps ensure reliable network communications over a TCP/IP-based Ethernet connection. It eliminates common faults which can occur while using DHCP to manage the TCP/IP network address

Step One.

Install the LTM app onto the mobile device. It is available both through the Google Play Store and as part of the LAVA Software Release Package, which includes a copy of the Installation Manual for your eSynC or eSTS adapter.

Step Two.

Go into the app’s Ethernet Settings to configure Network Recovery Mode. The app lets you select the amount of time it should wait after a dropped connection to attempt a reset.

Results.

When a network connection has been unavailable for the time interval configured in the LTM app, it tells the RBM-equipped adapter to reset the network connection. It’s the equivalent to physically unplugging and reconnecting the Ethernet cable or adapter.

RBM vs CABM

RBM is distinct from Continuously Active Battery Modulation (CABM), which is found in LAVA’s u Series SimulCharge™ adapters and the Charge-Check

RBM vs CABM

While both offer battery protection, CABM is a plug-and-play technology, meaning it requires no extra software to run. RBM must be configured through an accompanying LAVA Tablet Manager (LTM) Android app, making it slightly more involved to set up but more robust. RBM also features Network Recovery that can rescue a dropped wired Ethernet connection.
