Surface Mount System for the iPad mini 1-3 provides the ability to mount and charge an iPad on nearly any surface. iPads are everywhere, in business and homes. There are thousands of smart devices now that help make life better, such as smart door locks, smart lighting and even digital music systems. All these devices come to life on an iPad screen where the user can control such smart devices as they desire. Turn an iPad into a smart touch controller with Surface Mount: the elegant frame that integrates an iPad onto any surface.
Surface Mount's Aluminum bezel is made of high-grade alloy and finished to the highest standards. Inside the bezel is a beautiful arrangement of ports, clips and locks that enable nearly every iPad hardware function. All this capability is engineered in a minimalist, high quality frame and hidden from sight. Installing an iPad into the Surface Mount bezel literally is a 'snap'. Simply place the iPad into the bezel and snap in the tabs. While installed, the user can still control the iPad power button by using the power button extension port on the side of the bezel. Even utilize the iPad's speaker and microphone while installed in the bezel. The Surface Mount system provides true flexibility when installing an iPad onto a wall. The mounting bracket can be positioned in any orientation on top of any wall box. This is helpful if trying to align the Surface Mount with other objects above or below on the wall, or if trying to cover a hole from an older device. iPort's specialized screws are part anchor and part screw, minimizing the amount of work required to affix the mounting bracket onto the wall. Once an iPad is placed in the bezel and the Splitter is wired, the only thing left to do is snap the iPad-in-bezel onto the mounting bracket. Simply place the Bezel above the mounting bracket and the magnets snap everything into place. Security locks are available to make sure the iPad stays put in busy places like offices or restaurants.
Surface Mount electronics are designed to power an iPad in nearly any scenario, whether running power over long distances or even utilizing existing wiring from an older device. Surface Mount's electronics system can receive power from a PoE Switch or 24V DC power supply. And the PoE Injector (sold separately) is used for instances in which power from a wall receptacle is required. Surface Mount was designed from the bottom up to be the easiest iPad mount to install. Use any Wall box, whether EU, UK or US, single gang or double gang. Simply hang Surface Mount over the box, in any orientation. The PoE Injector can be used to power iPad from a local wall receptacle or can be plugged into an AV rack up to 600 feet away. The iPort PoE Splitter is a tiny device that can fit into any wall box worldwide. Connect CAT-5 or CAT-6 cable to the Splitter to receive power from a PoE (803.2af) power source such as a PoE Network Switch. Or connect low voltage wire to iPort's 2-pin port from any 24V DC power source. Connect an iPad Lightning cable to the USB port to provide up to 12W of power to the iPad. The Splitter can even be used as a cable manager to wrap up excess iPad cable, making it easier to place the Splitter in a wall box.
