Innovative Power Management

PowerShuttle™ Load Sensing Technology from Ergotron

Efficiently scans the system and distributes power to optimize total charge time for the notebooks and prevent overloading electrical circuits at the same time

Prioritizes power requirements on the cart by zone: 1) external auxiliary outlets for peripheral devices, 2) internal IT equipment (e.g. WAP/Ethernet switch), and 3) six five-bay notebook charging banks to safely allocate power draw

Eliminates manual intervention to use the auxiliary outlets or charge notebooks

Lightweight yet durable plastic, aluminum and steel design make the cart easy to move

Doors to notebook storage compartment simply stow in the sides of the cart, making it easy to access the notebook bays when the cart is open

Single-sided access to notebook compartment allows the cart to be easily positioned against a wall and access all notebook storage bays

Four locking, rugged, yet smooth gliding casters make the cart easy to mobilize

AC Adapter cradles in the rear compartment include Velcro straps, to secure power adapters in the cart during transport and to easily contain excess power cable length

Easy to read LED indicators clearly show the system status and power distribution via intuitive icons

Two conveniently located external auxiliary power outlets support the use of peripheral devices

Simple flexible cable routing guides in the notebook compartment facilitate effective cable management and easy manual connections of power and Ethernet cables to each notebook
