The Cambrionix C3-Case component accelerates your time to market in all charge/sync developments. The Low-cost and high performance of the C3-Case will help you to meet the needs of both the Business and Education sectors, expanding your product portfolio into these new, and fast growing markets.

The C3--Case unit can be easily customised for unique use. The options available allow you to use an off-the-shelf product, and at the same time, offer a product designed to meet the individual needs of your clients and customers.

These options include:

  •     Custom user-interface, custom firmware features etc.
  •     Customised / branded host software available for scheduling charge and sync cycles.

Major benefits to end users include:

  •     Scheduled charge cycles may increase the life of the iPad internal battery compared to performing a charge cycle each time the iPad is connected to the cart/case.
  •     Scheduling software can allow the use of a smaller PSU (by charging in blocks) saving cart/case cost.
  •     Scheduling software can allow time consuming sync to be performed at a set time each day.

Reliability and dependability are paramount, and the C3-Case is has been specifically designed with both in mind. With full rate charging at 2.1A for iPad and 1A for iPod Touch it uses a simple 5V input provided by a low-cost PSU. Extensive protection is offered to the connected devices as well as the C3-Case itself. The C3-Case is covered by our worldwide standard 12 month RTB warranty.
