Revolutionary USB Hub Provides "Universal" Charging for iPads, Tablets and Smart Phones

Datamation Systems announces an advanced, compact 8-port charging device

SOUTH HACKENSACK, N.J.--For the first time, there is a truly universal USB charging device that not only provides optimal charging for iPads, tablets and smart phones, but can be updated as new devices become available.

Charging large numbers of different devices is a significant challenge for schools, hospitals, businesses and others and the idea of a universal charger has long been elusive because of the variety of configurations using USB.

With an exciting new technology from Cambrionix - a leader in USB technology solutions -- Datamation Systems offers this as the latest addition to its extensive suite of charge, sync, security and storage products for iPads, iPods, iPhones, Android/Windows tablets and other devices.

This professional USB charging station identifies the correct charge profile for each connected device drawing on its library of charging configurations. The library can be updated in the field as supported configurations are added, making it "future-proof."

"Using the right charging profile helps maintain battery performance and extend the life of your device," said Joe Mazza, Datamation Systems' Vice President. "Trade shows, conference centers and tech centers have been asking for this for a long time."

Datamation Systems will be introducing several versions of this new technology: a charge-only hub (DS-IP-8-UC), a version that charges and syncs communication to each USB port (DS-IP-8-USC), and a larger 16-port configuration. These can be daisy-chained for even larger arrays. They will work as standalone devices or be incorporated into its transport cases, cabinets and carts. The hubs can also be built into kiosks, lockers and other applications. Datamation Systems is happy to provide components to OEMs looking at these applications.

Datamation Systems solutions are used in thousands of schools, libraries, hospitals and offices.

These new charging systems and other products will be available from resellers or directly from Datamation Systems. Additional information can be found at Datamation's iPad and Tablet webpage.

They also provide multi-bay battery chargers to help manage battery use in classrooms and other settings. Visit Datamation Systems' web sites at or
