The 30-Notebook Managed Charging Cart (SmartBuy) from HP is designed to securely store and charge notebook PCs and tablets with up to 15.6" diagonal screen size inside the classroom. The cart has a large compartment with 30 removable, smooth-edged shelves for easy, quick, and safe loading and unloading by teachers and students, and a separate, locked IT compartment to store notebook power adapters and Ethernet connectors. It stores and charges up to 30 units and includes Ethernet cables for easy batch installation of software updates or virus protection.

Open Architecture
It is compatible with a variety of HP and non-HP tablets, netbooks, and notebooks, up to 15.6" screen size. 1
Smart Charging Technology
Load-sensing technology directs charging power when and where it is needed the most, so each notebook is charged quickly.
Retractable Front Doors
Two locking, hinged front doors on the notebook bay open from the center and retract into the cart's side channels for neat storage.
Removable Shelves
Lightweight shelves feature hand cut-outs for easy notebook removal and venting for optimal cooling/airflow. Removable shelves and pegs allow extra storage space inside the cart. Shelf insertion/removal is done through a simple peg and notch system.
Service Compartments
Two locking, removable rear panels allow access to the AC adapters and Ethernet cabling. The top locking panel on the top surface of the cart is removable for access to IT equipment (i.e. WAP/router, Ethernet switches and controller box). 2
Ample Ventilation
Two fans cool IT equipment located in the top compartment and four fans cool the notebooks in the main body of the cart. All fans are always on. Venting is located on both end panels and the front and rear of the cart.
Four 4" medical-grade, dual-wheel custom casters support easy turning and moving over thresholds. All four casters can swivel and be locked into place through a foot brake pedal to prevent the cart from unwanted movement.
Cable Management
Internal cable management channel guides keep power and Ethernet cables neat and managed inside the cart. Specially-designed panels located at each end of the cart that provide venting also serve as a recessed cable management wrap for external cabling.
Security Features
Includes a standard key/lock system for securing the notebook and service compartments. A single key opens all notebook and service compartments of the cart. All compartments are independently secured, restricting user access to only desired compartments. Four keys are included with each cart.
Operating Assumptions
Custom Power Controller Design: Capable of operating within the standard electrical requirements.
Power Adapter
One HP AC adapter used for powering the controller box (included).
Liquid Ingress Protection
Grade "0;" cart structurally engineered to preclude liquids.
Timer Controller
Sorting/prioritizing of power allocation happens when the cart is plugged in and when a new factor (such as plugging in an additional notebook, use of the external auxiliary outlets, etc) is introduced or at regular intervals if no new event occurs.
Current Limit
Fast Response Inrush Current Limit: Phases the power of the notebook outlets up over six banks, preventing breaker from tripping on start up of charging. All notebook outlets are powered up in groups of five after the turn-on delay and will remain powered up until an over-temperature fault, circuit breaker trip, AC cord removal, charging or managing the next bank, auxiliary outlet is used or site power is removed.
Controller Box
The Controller Box accepts power from an input cord and is distributed through two circuit breakers (line and neutral) to the power control board. It also utilizes an HP standard AC adapter to convert AC to DC for fan and digital control and provides DC power to two fans. It is designed to meet all applicable standards. The controller box houses the PC board that directs the intelligent electrical system.
